Great white shark Katharine is continuing her southern sojourn, closing in on Jupiter after leaving cooler waters far east of Bermuda.
Katharine, who was tagged in 2013 with a satellite tracker by the group OCEARCH, has made a name for herself in Florida after skimming the shore a few miles off Boynton Beach in 2014 and surfacing in the Keys.
On Monday, Katharine was about 20 miles northeast of Hobe Sound when she came to the surface long enough for her GPS tracker to register.
OCEARCH's sharks have earned social media celebrity through Twitter accounts.
On Nov. 28, Katharine was off the coast of Port St. Lucie.
"Made it to the Sunshine State a little earlier than I normally do," she Tweeted. "This sassy shark needs a little vacation in warm waters."
No one has been bitten by a white shark in Florida, according to the International Shark Attack File, and there's nothing to bring them near shore.
They are more likely to come close to the beaches of Cape Cod, where seals pile up along the coast, said Gregory Skomal, a scientist with the Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries in a 2017 interview.
Skomal spent time in 2016 in the waters off Palm Beach County trying to solve a white shark secret — what are they feasting on here.
He said the assumption is they are eating larger fish, such as snapper, or other sharks and dolphins. They are also known to target right whales. Turtles are most likely off the menu because white sharks' teeth are too pointy and would break off on the shell.
A 2014 study led by National Marine Fisheries shark expert Tobey Curtis compiled a database of 649 confirmed white shark sightings back to the 1800 and found a clear pattern of white sharks wintering off both Florida coasts and through the Carolinas. Summers are spent in New England waters.
The study also found that white sharks were most often sighted in waters over the continental shelf. More than 90 percent of the sightings were in waters 330 feet deep or less, with the median depth of about 100 feet.
Because the continental shelf doesn't extend far off Palm Beach County's coast, white sharks may be funneled between the coast and the shelf's edge, said Dean Grubbs, associate director of research at the Florida State Coastal and Marine Lab in a 2017 interview.
"If you are in Jacksonville, it's 50 miles to the edge of the continental shelf, but down in Jupiter, it's only a few miles," Grubbs said. "If animals want to stay in that shallow zone, they are going to come closer to shore."
