The Saint Augustine Monster, a real carcass that has never been positively identified; sewer rats so huge that people have petted them like dogs; the Fountain of Youth, searched for by the conquistador Ponce de Leon; 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); strange phenomena at the historic Mary Phifer McKenzie House, part of the Sweetwater Branch Inn in Gainesville; the Fairchid Oak of Ormond Beach, haunted my a male spectre, possibly a suicide; and the Elusive Muck Monster of Lake Worth Lagoon, are more weird folklore associated with Florida.
