The research group monitoring the movement of a 14-foot great white shark tweets picture of the beast swimming in the ocean.


A 2,300-pound great white shark has moved closer inland near the Volusia and Flagler county coastline.

Scientists attached a tracking device to the 14-foot shark named Katharine. She was originally caught near Cape Cod and has since swam nearly 2,000 miles to Central Florida.

The location of the shark is determined by a ping based on when the shark breaks the water's surface.

Ocearch, the group monitoring Katharine, recently tweeted a picture of the shark taken from an expedition group.
