Assateague Island Mammals
Assateague Island State Park and National Seashore
Assateague Island is the home of 44 species of mammals. Many of these animals are small, secretive, or nocturnal and therefore often go unnoticed by visitors to the island. Marine mammals such as whales are infrequently found washed up on the island's shores after dying at sea. To see some of Assateague's mammals one can walk quietly and slowly on designated trails through the inner dunes, woodland, and salt marsh in the early morning and late evening.
