A shark spotted at Ballston Beach in Cape Cod is probably a great white, local shark experts say.

Fisherman Jeff Richardson says he was out looking for tuna when he snapped this photo of the shark.

It appeared to be about 12 feet long and around a thousand pounds.

Experts confirmed another great white sighting late last month in nearby Truro, where a Colorado man was bitten about 500 yards off the beach.
