Cue the Scary Music

White Shark 

Ever wonder how far south white sharks, great white sharks travel?  It’s a question all west coast surfers ask regularly, as they tell themselves it’s the Central Coast, or maybe down to Orange County, but no further.  Well now we have some evidence that shows whites go way down to mainland Mexico.  The Monterey Bay Aquarium has a link to a site that has been tracking the Aquarium’s recently released juvenile shark as it heads south for warmer weather, or maybe it’s for swimmers without wetsuits.  Use the animation to see how fast this pup can swim.  YIKES!  http://las.pfeg.noaa.gov/TOPP/sp41_anm.html
