Two Massive Sharks Spotted Within Minutes Near the Florida- Georgia Line

Two Massive Sharks Spotted Within Minutes Near the Florida- Georgia Line

Off the east coast of Florida, there have been reports of two enormous great white sharks, both over 13 feet long, swimming in close proximity to one another.

The adult sharks known as “Bob” and “Breton” were tagged within a minute of each other along the Florida-Georgia border early on Tuesday, March 19, according to the tracking system made available by the nonprofit OCEARCH. A ping is detected, per OCEARCH, each time an animal’s tag penetrates the water’s surface.

Breton is over 1,400 pounds in weight. The shark pinging occurred on Tuesday, March 19, around 12:46 a.m., according to the OCEARCH tracker.

Bob, a man who weighs over 1,300 pounds, pings somewhat closer to shore on Tuesday, March 19, at around 12:45 a.m.

The motto of OCEARCH is “facts over fear.” The nonprofit offers outreach and education programs in addition to supporting research.

The organization stated in a recent social media post that white sharks are finishing their overwintering season and moving north for the summer.
