Great white sharks showing up in ‘crazy’ numbers off Carolina coast

A fishy number of great white sharks have appeared off the coast of the Carolinas in recent days.

More than nine great whites were tracked along the normally tourist-friendly coast, according to a report from the Charlotte Observer.

The sharks were tracked by OCEARCH, which tagged the famous animals for research purposes, the report said. The trackers found eight sharks off the coast of North and South Carolina within just five days, including two that were more than 12 feet long.

It was part of a “crazy” weekend for sharks making appearances all along the eastern seaboard, OCEARCH wrote in a Facebook post.
