    You don't have to ask. He will point it out anyway. Think they are very proud of the size of this nest.

    Frist trip to Disney in 1976 (oops telling my age here) we stayed at FW , I fell over an armadillo on the way to the restroom, in the dark, we also saw lots of deer. Just last year I saw a big black snake at the resort.

    Saw a snake in Typhoon Lagoon once by the edge of the lazy river. Think it was black, didn't really look that close.

    Saw a dead rat there once as well. A CM had to come along and clear it away as it was right in the middle of the path. I'm assuming they have poison down somewhere to keep the rodents under control?

    Saw lots of dead snakes on the sticky pads in the garage of the villas we stayed at and those little bright green tree creatures that begin with the letter F Also had one of those things jumping around in Tony's once - I've never run so fast

    Also saw lots of roadkill on the way to KSC - armadillos and racoons

    We saw a HUGE turtle. I didn't know too much about them at the time, but thinking back it was probably a Florida soft shell turtle. It was MASSIVE.

    Have a pic somewhere, but can't find it so heres one from google...

    Ohohohohoh that reminded me. Me and Nanny Lesley were driving along the Beeline Expressway back from Kennedy and there was a huge turtle crossing the road right in front of us.

    Was told the black snakes were harmless, but none the less I gave it all kinds of room. I remember the little green tree frogs at Hillsboro State Park, hope this is the name it was a state park not too far from Bucsh Gardens. The Park Ranger there told me the gators only eat people north of the boarder.
