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…….
Will be looking over my shoulder and watching those dunes very carefully!! : )
Awareness is your best weapon!
You’re right! : )
I’m afraid….very afraid.
The good news is….there is no record of them ever being found in Illinois.
I’m especially afraid of its pink little belly. Ha!
Thanks for the mention, Al!
Actually, Susie, that’s it’s weak spot. One gentle rub and it’s lights out for the creature.
I’m staying in my car !
Great pic…<3 hugs for you all xXx ❤
Hope it didn’t give you nightmares.
And a beached whale to add to the drama, yes? Wonder if that was near “your” beach??
Nope. He didn’t make it into the bay. He knew it was a “private” beach.
Lol Al! That is one scary creature. Are you guys somewhere safe now? 😉
Yes, but suffering from PTSD…….
