Hey It’s Jet Here.
Mom and I watched CNN this morning while she drank her protein shake breakfast. We caught a super cool piece on this organization called OCEARCH. They catch, tag and release great white sharks at sea and track them to help study the great white life cycle.
In September, they found a large, 3,500 lb mature female off Cape Cod. They named her Mary Lee after the organization’s founder’s Mom! Yesterday, the tracker found her close to the shore off Jacksonville, Florida so they called the police to advise them. Proper beach notices went out keeping the humans safe and Mary Lee safe, too!
Another great, jaws kind of day!
Thanks to BlogPaws for sponsoring the Wordless Wednesday Hop.
OMG we nearly choked on our lunch. That is one great way to monitor sharks xx Really fancy fish now instead of this chicken …. Archie xxx
Hey Archie, Hey Henry, Hey Oscar, Jet here.
Kind of glad we are primarily land lovers, huh! (I like to swim in the swampy canal behind my house when I “escape!”
We watched a documentary on that, how fantastic. I wouldn’t want to catch one though..BOL xx00xx
Mollie and Alfie
Hey Mollie, Hey Alfie, Jet here.
Nope, gonna leave shark lassoing to the professionals!!!
WOW Jet. I’ve been following Mary Lee as well. They even put out a notice not too far away from my birth place at Tybee Island in Georgia. I looked at the big ole huge shark and thought to myself I would only be a snack for him! Shivers snort. I can’t go swimming in the ocean unattended. That’s scary! XOXO – Bacon
Hey Bacon, Jet here.
I’m afraid we would both be appetizers!
shivers. going to the ocean and dipping my hooves is on my bucket list but not if those things are out there. One moment and i would be gone!
Hey Bacon, Jet here.
I’m interested in walking on the edge of the ocean, trying to perhaps play in the surf… as for the creatures in the sea… no thank you!
Hey Jet! It’s Oz. (I can hear the Jaws theme playing…duh-dunt, duh-dunt…). That’s pretty cool. I love when people protect anipals, don’t you?
Hey Oz the Great, Jet here.
We didn’t know how to write out the theme… well done! (Mom was sleepy!) Yes, we love win-win situations!!!
Have a great day.
Thanks for sharing OCEARCH! Happy WW!
Hey Nellie, Hey Kozmo, Jet here.
Cool, huh? Happy WW, to you as well!
Wow! 3500 pounds? That is enormous!
Hey Leroy, Hey Sherman, Jet here. Hi Miss Jen.
Right? Makes us seem like anchovies! BOL!
Cool story, Jet! Good to know we’re finding ways to help sharks and people live without bloodshed!
Christie from lifewithbeagle.com
Hey Lulu, Jet here. Hi Miss Christie.
Exactly, win/win is a lofty goal and sweet when attained. 🙂
Wow cool, that would be so interesting to see, from far away.
Hey Roxy, Hey Torrey, Jet here. Hi Miss Mary.
Yes, the opportune word is DISTANCE!!! 🙂
Wow that’s a shark bite story! Keep your paws out of the water…(que in Jaws theme here)
Wagging skark-ey Wordless Wednesday!
Hey Maggie, Jet here.
I stay closer to the swampy backyard canal!!! Although… that has really bad snakes…
That is SO cool!
Hey Misaki, Jet here.
We complete agree!
Ooh. I love watching things about sharks. I am an avid fan of shark week, so thanks for sharing.
Hey it’s Jet here.
Mom is too!!! Glad you enjoyed… if you share your blog address, we will visit!
That’s scary!! I like their idea, that way everyone stays safe and we learn to live with each other in harmony. Isn’t that what it’s all about?
Hey Sampson, Hey Delilah, Jetty here. Hi Miss Jodi.
See, that’s why your blog is so perfectly named… you have such good hearts! 🙂 Well put.
Woof! Woof! That’s good that they placed a tracker. We saw some whales yesterday driving on the west side of the island. Happy Wednesday. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar
Hey Sugar, Jet here.
OMD, how super cool is that? Humpbacks? Is it calving season? Guess what? Mom and Mr. Fred once pulled this thingie called an “all-nighter” to volunteer with others to help a beached baby whale. They had to keep her from sinking and make sure she stayed wet. Unfortunately, she passed after a few days… Mom also saw this thingie called a whale shark, quite rare. She was a teen and didn’t know the grandeur of the experience at the time!
I am glad there aren’t any open areas where sharks can live here. I know they aren’t the tyrants people make them out to be, still…I wouldn’t want to come across one! But they are very cool to watch from a safe distance! And I am glad that the people that understand them are trying to help and not just blindly killing them off – good job protectors!!!
Hey Blueberry, Jet here.
Well put Blue (I’ve always had the urge to call you Blue, may I? You can call me Jetty.)
Whoa, those are some amazing photos! Just glad I get to enjoy them on the internet and not be that close in person!
Hey Eko, Jet here. Hi Mr. Will.
We thought so, too, taken from OCEARCH’s site, (linked back of course!)… Oh, Mr. Will, truer words were never written… we already have gator reports in our area! Lots of teeth, Mr. Will, lots of teeth!
That’s a neat way to learn about sharkies. We asked Mama if sharkies are like yummy tuna and salmon fishies we like to nom. She said, oh, no, they eat you! Oh, shivers with frights!
Hey Ateret, Hey Livia, Hey Abbi, Jet here.
Well, to be accurate, some humans do eat them, which is why the shark population is under threat. You see, the humans cut off 1 fin and throw the rest of the shark back to die. Shark fin soup is quite a delicacy in some regions of the globe.
Let’s just say that all of you ladies, and all the residents at Casa Jet would not even equal morning snack!!!
Wow Jet! What neat really scary pictures. Mom says that they gave her a little shiver seeing animal that big that can bite. I’d rather bite snowballs than be in the water with those things.
Hey Missy, Jet here.
Who could blame you? The only thing is we must respect them, because they are a necessary creature in our global habitat and sharks are being slaughtered at an alarming rate. 😦
Hi sweet Jetty – that is awesome! We used to live in Cape Cod, Jacob was born there – very beautiful place – I wonder if Mary Lee came to Fl waters because it;s too cold in Cape Cod – she’s not only a shark – she’s a snow bird! (ha ha!!)
love you Jetty xoxoxox
Hey it’s Jet here. Hi Miss Wendy.
BOL! good one… We KNEW you had that Mass accent, didn’t know exactly where!!! They believe she came down for the nursing grounds… babies must stay warm!
Love you right back! xoxoxoxoxox
Mom sez she’s seen sharks when she was diving …Not me! never seen one, don’t wanna see one…sharks & dogs not a good mix…You brave to even look at them Jetty!
Hey Giz, Jetty here. Hi Miss JG.
Mom’s a diver, too!!! Apparently she saw a shark, however, she never knew it because the water in NJ was so murky (VBP). Since she was 15, it was snowing and my Nana already thought she was crazy… guess it’s better her buddy told her after they got back on board freighter!!
That’s pretty cool! I think it would probably be pretty scary to catch a shark though…
Hey it’s Jet here. Hi Miss Ann.
Mom asked me to share that she certainly would not have that interest, however, she’s grateful to those that do so we can learn about them! 🙂
Mom has seen sharks, the harmless kind while diving, but what she is terrified of is alligators, they are creepy!
Hey Emma, Hey Katie, Jet here.
BOL! Good one… at least you didn’t mention the litigator kind!!! Uh oh… you sure would not like the tropics then!
We think sharks look a little scary. We will stick to deer thanks! Lee and Phod
Hey Lee, Hey Phod, Jet here.
Scary for sure… uh… you have deer? Do you ever chew on antlers???
What a wonderful idea! Me hopes she stays out a sea!
Hey Nellie, Hey Kozmo, Jet here. Hi Miss Penelope.
Yes, we hope that all the respective species stay safe!
this is a great info…it’s been a while since I last saw a documentary on animal related issue. The local TV station doesn’t play it anymore 😦
Shark is scary but also fascinating
Hey Kroten, Hey Papoe, Hey Kurome, Jet here. Hi Miss Novroz.
Darn, sorry to read that about your tv station… can you watch online???
Yes, sharks are frightening, yet have outlasted so many other species you want to know how they do it!
they are finding humun-gus squid off of our CA coast
Benny & Lily
Hey Benny, Hey Lily, Jet here.
Really? Wonder where they were before???
Hey Y-Bo, Jet here. Hi Miss Loy.
