We often see many marine creatures on the beach, but a baby alligator was spotted at North Topsail Beach over the weekend.
JoAnn Groeger said she saw the animal about 5:45 p.m. Saturday about one mile away from Rogers Bay.
After her walk, Groeger saw a second one walking its way into the ocean.
She said it was near the same area as the first encounter.
Groeger said no one tried to get close and the animals never seemed aggressive.
