Jekyll, a Great White Shark, Spotted Off Atlantic City, NJ
Is it ironic that here we are days away from Halloween and we have a shark named "Jekyll" off the coast of New Jersey?
According to Patch, dubbed "Jekyll" by shark tracker organization OCEARCH, this 8-foot shark was first pinged off the coast of Long Beach Island late Wednesday night.
A ping means that the shark's dorsal fin broke the surface long enough for his tag to be picked up by satellite, giving researchers his location.
