Marine Biologists have recently tracked several massive sharks in the Gulf of Mexico.
The scientists at OCEARCH noted that a nine foot and eight inch, 533-pound Great White Shark named Cabot was cruising outside of Mobile Bay on May 31. The massive sharked caused a little trepidation for spring breakers earlier this year when he pinged OCEARCH in early March of this year.
As of 6 a.m. this (Tuesday, June 1) morning, there are two more giant sharks near Gulf Shores and Mobile.
Tintolea, a 10-foot-seven inch Tiger Shark is patrolling the waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Tintolea isn't alone--OCEARCH has also tracked Colette, a 12-foot-three-inch shark in the Gulf. Colette weighs in at over 900 pounds and pinged OCEARCH researchers in March along with Great White Cabot.
