Great White Shark and travel baller Breton says the water isn't safe in NC

Newsweek


quote:

Great White Shark Much Bigger Than Ironbound Stalking North Carolina Coast


quote:

An enormous great white shark much larger than Ironbound, who made headlines earlier this week, has been lurking off the coast of North Carolina, tracking data shows.

On May 10, tracking data from ocean conservation group OCEARCH showed a 1,000lb great white shark known as Ironbound had been swimming off the coast of North Carolina and New Jersey. News reports said he is one of the biggest great whites living along the eastern coast of the U.S.

However, OCEARCH data also shows a much larger great white, measuring over 13 feet and weighing almost 1,500 pounds is also in the North Carolina area. It is thought males and females congregate in this area in spring to mate.



quote:

OCEARCH data shows that another great white shark was spotted in almost exactly the same location as Ironbound on May 10, just off the Cape Hatteras National Seashore.

This shark, named Breton, was even larger than Ironbound when first tagged and much heavier. According to Ocearch, Breton measured 13 feet and three inches and weighed in at 1,437 pounds. Breton was first tagged in September, 2020, in Nova Scotia.



These are just the baw sharks. The bawette sharks are the ones you really have to worry about. They're even bigger and meaner.

Seriously, though, it is pretty cool that we can track these amazing creatures, and that we still have so much to learn about them. Breton is definitely making Allstars this year.

ETA: My favorite line from the article:
quote:

Both Breton and Ironbound get around.

If Breton is so much bigger than Ironbound, why give him a beta, fairy soy name like Breton?

They should have named him Bonecrusher or some awesome shite like that...

Because Brayleigh and Braxtyn's mom was on duty on the ship that tagged him.

Download the app, you can see the locations and past tracks of all the sharks they have tagged. A bunch even have the pictures of the actual shark from when it was tagged. It’s pretty cool to see everywhere they travel around to

He was first tagged in Nova Scotia. My guess is off of Cape Breton Island.
