These 5 Out-Of-Place Creatures Have Been Spotted In South Carolina And You’ll Want To Steer Clear

South Carolina is no stranger to dangerous wildlife. The DNR stays on top of managing it for us, and for that we’re grateful. But there are still instances where new creatures are spotted here from time to time and, even worse, a population of a dangerous species spreads into our own backyard, effectively infiltrating suburban life. Everyone knows to watch out for alligators and sharks along the coast and for the occasional bear in the mountain, but here are five possibly out-of-place creatures to keep a keen eye out for.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

Have you spotted any of the above in an out-of-place spot in the Palmetto State! We’d love to know!
