Myrtle Beach, SC – His name might be Teazer, but he’s not something you want to play with. This week, a 651 pound, 10 foot long great white shark named Teazer was spotted just off the coast of Myrtle Beach. Teazer was last seen this week, approximately 10 miles off the coast. He’s been track swimming northward from just outside of Edisto beach earlier this month. Teazer is one of many sharks being tracked by Ocearch, a marine research and tracking organization to help the scientific community study the ocean’s great creatures.
Unbelievable…another 2 shark day! Shark 10 of #ExpeditionNovaScotia is another sub-adult male and we named him Teazer after a ghost ship that’s rumored to patrol Mahone Bay each year. pic.twitter.com/EtJ7vlS1Zc

Teazer was tagged on October 3rd, 2019 off the coast of Lunenburg, Nova Scotia.
“White shark Teazer is named after a ghost ship, called the Young Teazer, that lore has it returns to the Mahone Bay area every year. Just like the ship returns, OCEARCH will be watching closely to see if white shark Teazer also returns on a regular basis,” Ocearch says.
