An immature, 12-foot-7-inch great white shark took a stroll along the Delaware coast the morning of Nov. 21.
OCEARCH, a nonprofit organization researching great whites and other large predators, tagged the 1,400-pound great white shark — named Betsy — in August 2013. Since she was tagged, Betsy has traveled more than 5,400 miles, according to OCEARCH’s website.
Betsy surfaced along the coast of Rehoboth Beach shortly after 3 a.m. and made her way down the Delaware coast, surfacing again near the Delaware Seashore State Park shortly after 10:30 a.m.
OCEARCH’s global shark tracker shows that Betsy then headed into the open waters of the Atlantic Ocean.
