JACKSONVILLE, Fla. --  A great white shark is looming, once again, off our coast.

Mary Lee is 16 feet long, 3,400 pounds and recently pinged 150 miles off Jacksonville's coast.

Mary Lee was tagged in Cape Cod in September by Ocearch. She was named after the fisherman's mother.

This isn't Mary Lee's first visit to North Florida. She pinged dangerously close to Jacksonville Beach on Jan. 8, 2012. Mary Lee has spent months traveling toward Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Bermuda.

You can track Mary Lee yourself and learn more about the research being done by visiting, <http://sharks-ocearch.verite.com/>.
