Florida Creepies 1 December 27, 2012January 3, 2013 Written by Catherine Like most tropical places, there are a lot of creepy-crawlies in Florida. We kept at arms reach and got to enjoy seeing them without getting bitten (or bitten off). Iguanas sunning themselves Tiny black snake, maybe a tropical snook? medium lizard Didn’t see any giants, but they are out there so we stayed well back from the edge of the ponds They scuttle away and then look back to see if you followed… Green Iguana blending in. This guy jumped into the river and swam off. Another big Iguana Graham took this one, he got quite close up Not a reptile, this is a lionfish in the harbour. They have poisonous spines and are invasive, so you are supposed to report them.
