Great White shark crosses the Atlantic ridge and heads towards England

Scientists tagged a massive great white shark of the sort made famous by the film Jaws. The shark is 15-feet long and weighs in at 2000 pounds. The shark is a female named Lydia and since being tagged the massive fish has swam a very long way according to Dailymail.

Lydia has become the first tagged great white shark to cross the mid-Atlantic ridge and is swimming closer to the coast of the UK and Ireland. At last update, the great white shark was only 780 miles off the coast.

Lydia was predicted to land in British coastal waters today, but she took a detour. This particular shark has been tracked for a year as part of a study on ocean life. In the last 72 hours the shark has swam 248 miles. Lydia crossed the mid-Atlantic ridge on March 9. Since being tagged near Florida, Lydia has covered 19,400 miles.

The shark was reached speeds of 35mph, which is very fast in the water. ‘I have no idea what to expect from her next. I've been working with sharks for a very long time now and I have never seen anything like this,’ said Dr Gregory Skomal, 52, senior fisheries biologist with Massachusetts Marine Fisheries.

‘It's anyone's guess where she is going to go next but she has been heading east so she might continue to do so.

‘In the last day we've had quite a few recordings after a little break. This is probably because she's starting to come a little higher up, where the water is warmer.

‘Though it's hard to predict what she'll do it'll be very exciting if she comes to you guys.
