The Saint Augustine Monster, a real carcass that has never been positively identified; 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); the smelly and sasquatch-like Skunk Ape; the ghosts of Miss Sunshine Gibson and Captain Wood in the historic, Cracker styled, Gibson Inn in Apalachicola; mysterious orbs and noises at the Historic Hollywood Beach Resort; the Elusive Muck Monster of Lake Worth Lagoon; and ghostly apparitions at the Hyatt Regency Orlando, formerly the Peabody Hotel, are more weird folklore associated with Florida.
Hauntings at Ocean Key Resort and Spa, Key West; the phantom of the Olde Marco Inn on Marco Island; the spectre in a top hat that haunts the Vinoy Renaissance Hotel in St Petersburg; the ghost of the Jameson Inn, quite modern but already haunted, on Cracker Barrel Drive in Crestview; the ghost of a former owner that haunts the Inn at New World Landing, Pensacola; the Fairchid Oak of Ormond Beach, haunted my a male spectre, possibly a suicide; the toilet-lurking Two Striped Telamonia spider; the phantom maid who makes a nuisance of herself in the historic St Francis Inn, St Augstine; the pink, horned, serpentine monster of the St John's River; and the thoroughfare popularly called Bloody Bucket Road and the similarly prefixed bridge and woods in Wauchula where, at night, blood appears in the water below the bridge and the sound of crying babies is heard from the woods (a murderous midwife is said to have been haunted by a bucket that supernaturally filled with the blood of her victims, which she tried to pour out at the bridge), are yet more strange folktales of Florida.
