(FOX 46 CHARLOTTE) — Two great white sharks have pigged off the coast of North Carolina this week. 

The research organization OCEARCH tracked Brunswick and Jane in the waters off the Outer Banks. They said a third shark, Jefferson, pinged last month, but no one knows where he is currently. 

Brunswick and Jane are just off shore the Avon Pier. OCEARCH says they both pinged on May 23.

According to OCEARCH, Jane is a sub-adult and was tagged on October 8, 2018, in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia in Canada. She’s the first female white shark ever SPOT tagged in Canadian waters, they said. 

She is 10 feet long and weighs 521 pounds.
