Dune lion is a cat like animal that lives in the dunes of the beach and underneath the boardwalk. They are difficult to find and avoid people as much as possible. But if they are seen it will most likely be in the winter and late at night, when the beach is least populated. Ocean City, New Jersey is where most sightings have been from. They are very fast and like to run along the waters edge. Consider yourself to be very lucky if you get to see one of these unique animals.
