Don't let your dog swim here!
The real deal - all 6'-8' of it
Upon entering The Great Outdoors, there is a road sign that I have never seen before:
This sign almost says it allLet's see: a sign that depicts big birds, alligators, deer, snakes, wild boar, turtles, and small birds with chicks. And it's missing something: an armadillo! Yes, here in Titusville, Florida, there are armadillos! Seems that they escaped the local zoo many years ago and nature took it's course. Every morning, we see holes in the lawn where the dillos have rooted during the night.
I saw this pair of sandhill cranes during my bike ride the other day. Since TGO sits next to a wildlife preserve, and has animal sanctuaries on it, this is a pretty common sight. These birds are big, standing well over 3' high.
