The 3,500-pound shark really puts in the miles, according to an AP report, Mary Lee was off Long Island, N.Y, on Thursday and that was after a long swim from warmer waters.

Earlier, Mary Lee traveled as far south as Jacksonville Beach, Fla and remember, she was tagged in waters off the Carolina coast.

She was tagged with another female, 'Genie' in September and has been very active since then and she seems to stay near the coast.

The sharks were tagged by OCEARCH and founder Chris Fischer says, "Until now, many researchers have never gotten up close to a great white. And Mary Lee is the first shark in history we are able to track like this."
