17ft great white shark could hit British shores this summer after becoming the second to cross the Atlantic when it took a ‘wrong turn’
- The 3,541lb female shark named Nukumi usually swims down the US east coast
- The large 17ft shark is being tracked by OCEARCH using satellite technology
- The 50 year old matriarch is the largest ever tagged in the north America region
- Experts can’t say for certain it will hit UK shores but it is capable of doing so
A 17ft long great white shark has crossed the Atlantic, becoming only the second in known history to do so, potentially hitting British shores this summer.
The 3,541lb female shark named Nukumi usually swims up and down the east coast of America and Canada but the tagged creature took an unexpected turn.
The 50-year-old matriarch – the largest ever tagged in the region by scientists who are monitoring her – took a swerve east, across the Atlantic.
Migratory species like great white sharks rarely cross the Mid-Atlantic Ridge – a barrier in the middle of the ocean – but Nukumi took the plunge earlier this month.
And she has kept going, surfacing long enough for the tag in her dorsal fin to ‘ping’ a GPS location back to gripped shark trackers at science organisation OCEARCH.
