When you go to the beaches of North Carolina, there is always a chance that you might see some sharks swimming around your local pier. Thanks to ocean researchers, we can actually see where these sharks came from and even what their names are. Within the past few days, there have been multiple massive sharks on North Carolina's coast.\nThe nine huge sharks that we can track have been tagged by Ocearch. This organization was created to help scientists collect data in the ocean. It also educates the public on ocean life and what we can do to help it.\nThe nine sharks that are lurking in the North Carolina waters each have names that make them fun to track. Orlando, Fritz, Crystal and Weimar are all Tiger Sharks and Caper, Shaw, Cabot, Jefferson and Scotia are all White Sharks.\nView this post on Instagram NAME A SHARK!
