There's a huge shark swimming just off the coast of Florida just in time for Shark Week.

The adult Mako shark, named Pico, is being tracked by Ocearch, a tracker by SeaWorld that keeps tabs on wildlife in the world's oceans.

7 ft, 5 in

The size of the Mako shark 

Pico, who is 181 lbs, has been swimming off of the Central Florida coastline for days now as the big guy seems to like the warm waters of the Atlantic.

Florida's East Coast is a haven for sharks, with most swimming well out of reach of beachgoers, but some coming close to the shoreline.

Ocearch also tracks dolphins, turtles, and alligators.
