The pink fog of Tomoka State Park that leaves behind only the dismembered skeletons of those it envelops; sewer rats so huge that people have petted them like dogs; unexplained phenomena at the Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables, Miami (ghostly events are associated with the fact that the hotel was used as a soldiers' hospital during WW2); spectral lights and other mysterious phenomena at the Indian River Inn & Conference Center in New Smyrna; the Fountain of Youth, searched for by the conquistador Ponce de Leon; the pink, horned, serpentine monster of the St John's River; the phantom of the Olde Marco Inn on Marco Island; the Wiccademous Grave of the atmospheric shrimping village Fernandina Beach, on Amelia Island, where the spirit of a witch causes the earth to tremble; hauntings at Ocean Key Resort and Spa, Key West; and strange phenomena at the historic Mary Phifer McKenzie House, part of the Sweetwater Branch Inn in Gainesville, are yet more strange folktales of Florida.
