The toilet-lurking Two Striped Telamonia spider; unusual hauntings of a Victorian guesthouse, Artist House, in Key West (the turret is said to be haunted, both by Anne, the wife of artist and author Robert Eugene "Gene" Otto and by the malevolent spirit of a sailor doll, also called Robert - the "possessed" doll itself is sometimes displayed in the Fort East Martello Museum or at the Old Post Office and Customhouse and is claimed to be the inpiration for the Chucky movies); 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; sewer rats so huge that people have petted them like dogs; the phantom lighthouse keeper at the St Augustine Lighthouse and Museum; and the phantom maid who makes a nuisance of herself in the historic St Francis Inn, St Augstine, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Florida.
