A 16-foot, 3,500-pound great white shark is swimming in northern waters after spending weeks off the Southeast coast, the NY Times reports.

Given a name by scientists, "Mary Lee" -- who weighs the same as a Ford Mustang -- was swimming off Jacksonville Beach, Fla., several weeks ago. (The photo above is actually Mary Lee. The great white to the left is from a Stanford study: "Great White Sharks More Endangered Than Tigers."

Other names are Carcharodon carcharias, and white death.

On Thursday, she was off Long Island, N.Y.

According to Shark Tracker, last night she was spotted off Cape Cod.
