One of the Great white sharks that has been tagged off Cape Cod has turned up in Rhode Island waters.

Ocearch says its tracker spotted the 15–foot shark named "Genie" in Block Island sound yesterday.

She was tagged last September and since then she's been to Florida and back. Genie is a whopping 2,300 pounds and that's only average size for a female great white.

You can track "Genie" on the ocearch website: http://sharks-ocearch.verite.com/
