This den is located in a suburban neighborhood in Kill Devil Hills, on NC'w Outer Banks.
I have watched this den site for several years. This year the pair had six babies. (One was later hit by a car.) When the kits were 13-14 weeks old, the parents moved the den. I know the adjacent landowner and have had permission to photograph there.
