We might be best known for our wild horses, but I never quite get over the randomness of the animals on the Outer Banks. In addition to these, we also have peacocks, goats, chickens and a few non-wild horses.
From time to time, often around the early spring, we do actually get seals around here. Much like the Wild Horses, PLEASE stay far away. They're typically just self-beached so they can rest for a spell before continuing on their way. He may be cute, but they are still wild.
Yet another strange day on the 4x4. Dozens of these little guys washed up that afternoon. This little one was fortunate to survive even if he was accidentally caught by a hook. (Don't worry, they cut the hook out and sent him on his way)
