Just when you thought it was safe to go to the beach…..

My Colorado blogging friend Susie at https://susielindau.com posted a blog recently about all the wild animals that frequent her yard and deck. The list is impressive (with pictures) and you should check it out.

Having read it, I began to wonder how many of you out there know about the dangerous creatures that prowl the confines of beaches here in Virginia Beach. You already know the risks involved in entering the water. But beware, behind the sandy dunes lurks a creature so fearsome, so foul, as to keep one constantly looking over one’s shoulder instead of casually enjoying the sun and surf.

Yes, I’m talking about the Cavasaurus Blackus Whiteus, of the genus Cavachonus Hairus Frightenus. Normally a quadruped, when aroused this throwback to the Jurassic era will rear up on its hind feet, bare its formidable teeth and race toward you in a menacing gallop. Don’t be fooled by its small stature. Though barely weighing in at 25 lbs, the beast makes up for its lack of bulk by its terrifying posture and total resolve. And woe betide the individual who thinks he can out run it.

But don’t take my word for it, see for yourself…….

Your turn to write, but please don't be wittier than me. My ego is quite fragile.
