"Chuck Carmack can often be found at Airlie Gardens, snapping pictures of just about every critter he sees in the New Hanover County gardens along Bradley Creek. But this May, he saw a pair of animals in one of the gardens' many ponds that looked a bit strange.

Then he got home, opened the picture on his computer and saw the animal's Doritos-colored buck teeth." Reproduced with permission of the author.
