In the critter department, Cape Cod is probably best known for our frolicking whales and sunbathing seals, not to mention anything and everything you can cram into a clambake.
The great whites have jumped to the the top of the list making their presence well known to a lot of unsuspecting seals and one very surprised Ballston Beach swimmer.
And maybe word has gotten out that the eatin' is good on Old Cape Cod for it wasn't long after one of our many storms this winter that a gator was spotted on Chatham Lighthouse Beach.
But unlike the gators that slither and snap their way across the country's southerly regions, this Cape Cod gator was made of wood. And that's okay, because one predator lurking along the shore is plenty.
