Mary Lee first took the Internet by storm last year thanks to her sharp Twitter wit. She gets around a lot moving about 19 miles per 24-hour day, and thanks to electronic tagging, has been tracked hanging out along the Delmarva coastline as well as the Outer Banks.

Mary Lee is tracked by OCEARCH, but you can follow @maryleeshark on Twitter to keep up with all her adventures.

Here are a few quick facts about Mary Lee from OCEARCH, a non-profit group that researches great white sharks and other large apex predators:

  • Mary Lee was tagged with a tracker off Cape Cod Sept. 17, 2012.
  • She is 16 feet long.
  • Since she was tagged in 2012, she has traveled 19,365 miles from Florida to Nova Scotia.
  • She was named after a researcher's mother, after he described the shark as "Truly the most historic and legendary fish I have ever been a part of."
