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.

Jekyll, named for Jekyll Island, GA, where he was found, not the literary character, is a juvenile white shark measuring 8 feet, 8 inches and weighing 395 pounds, according to OCEARCH.

Jekyll was tracked off the coast of Atlantic City on Thursday.
