BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA– Tourists and Space Coast of Florida locals aren’t the only ones spending their Memorial Day weekend in Brevard waters.
Savannah, an 8-foot long, 460-pound Great White Shark, is also enjoying the waters off Brevard’s most popular beach destinations.
The young carcharodon carcharias (white shark) is not new to the area and seems to enjoy the Space Coast on holidays. She also “pinged” back on New Year’s Day just south of Canaveral National Seashore.
According to OCEARCH’s Global Shark Tracker, Savannah pinged several times on Saturday morning near Melbourne and Cocoa Beach before traveling north, hitting the OCEARCH radar again on Sunday morning shortly after 10 a.m. near her January 1 hangout, Canaveral National Seashore.
You can keep up with Savannah on her Twitter page.

Savannah was named to celebrate the people of Savannah, Georgia where she was tagged during Lowcountry Expedition. She is still very much growing but is officially 8-feet 6-inches long and was tagged in March 2017 off Hilton Head, South Carolina.
The “sassy white shark from the low country” has traveled 4,794 miles since she was tagged.
According to the OCEARCH Facebook page, Savannah is heading north with many of her friends for cooler waters
