Wildlife Encounter In Murrells Inlet

We had our first scary wildlife encounter in Murrells Inlet and it made Typhoon and Roscoe jump sky high. See the dangerous creature in today’s post!

We were walking the greenway near the new house as we do a couple of times a day when Roscoe and Typhoon both jumped straight up in the air and scrambled backwards. Hu-Dad was quickly scanning the ground for a snake or alligator…but the attacker was much, much worse.

According to Typhoon and Roscoe, the attacking beast came racing from the underbrush, bared its fangs, and roared a warning at them to back away. For some odd reason, Hu-Dad was laughing hysterically and claimed they exaggerated the danger. We will leave it to you to decide, but will end with a photo of our two warriors returning to the barracks after the battle (well, returning to the air conditioning and soft beds).

    Just think of all the other “new” wild critters that will scare you guys. Always good for a daily laugh.

    nothing but delightful days of Sibes living their delightful ordinary days through the eyes and magic of Hu-Dad! XOXO

    Clearly you have not read about the deadly ninja tortoises that have plagued your area. Only by their swift acrobatics did they save Hudad from possible attack!!! After all we have all seen the documentary series Ninja Turtles (I think that was Donatello..)

    We have those terrifying creatures here in PA. Denali the red head is very scared of them, of course he is also very afraid of pugs. They run in packs you know! ????. Watch out you never know when a rock will turn out to be on of those terrifying creatures!

    How lucky for you to have encountered such a rare and vicious Beast. We have them here but they’re protected because so much off their habitat has been destroyed

    Man that must have been terrifying. It looked very scary. So glad Hu-Dad was there to get you both back home after that enormous battle.
