    The gash-throated phantom of Luc Simone Aury that haunts the area outsde of the Amelia Island Museum of History, formerly the Old Jail where he was hanged, in Fernandina Beach (his attempt at suicide failed and his throat was stitched by a surgeon but the long drop of the gallows caused his wound to open and shower the horrified spectators with blood - Aury couldn't have planned it better if he had tried!); 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; mysterious orbs and noises at the Historic Hollywood Beach Resort; the Elusive Muck Monster of Lake Worth Lagoon; and the Wiccademous Grave of the atmospheric shrimping village Fernandina Beach, on Amelia Island, where the spirit of a witch causes the earth to tremble, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Florida.

    Ghostly apparitions at the Hyatt Regency Orlando, formerly the Peabody Hotel; the White Lady, Julia, who haunts Rolling Acres Road in appropriately named Lady Lake, along with a hooded phantom; hauntings at Ocean Key Resort and Spa, Key West; the phantom lighthouse keeper at the St Augustine Lighthouse and Museum; the pink fog of Tomoka State Park that leaves behind only the dismembered skeletons of those it envelops; the Fairchid Oak of Ormond Beach, haunted my a male spectre, possibly a suicide; and the spectre in a top hat that haunts the Vinoy Renaissance Hotel in St Petersburg, are more weird folklore associated with Florida.

    The ghost of a former owner that haunts the Inn at New World Landing, Pensacola; spectral lights and other mysterious phenomena at the Indian River Inn & Conference Center in New Smyrna; the ghost "Vivian" who haunts the Hunter Arms Inn in St Cloud; strange phenomena at the historic Mary Phifer McKenzie House, part of the Sweetwater Branch Inn in Gainesville; the phantom of the Olde Marco Inn on Marco Island; Umatilla Cemetery with its screaming woman and phantom children; spirits of the Agustin Inn in the St Augustine Historic District, including a man in white, who walks through walls and who may also be the ghostly Chiles who "goes bump in the night"; the smelly and sasquatch-like Skunk Ape; the Fountain of Youth, searched for by the conquistador Ponce de Leon; and sewer rats so huge that people have petted them like dogs, are yet more strange folktales of Florida.
