White Ibis
They are pretty little cranes that are everywhere. In fact they used to be nicknamed the Florida chicken because people used to eat them. There are always flocks of them going through the grass looking for bugs to eat. They really are pretty.

These are Florida's Burrowing owls. They're really little and are endangered. So if they decide to burrow into you yard or a playground for instance... you can't touch them. you have to wait until they decide to move. Crazy huh!
Don't let the picture freak you out... they aren't that big. But they are weird looking huh?!

This is what the spiders look like here. They're called Orb Weaving Spider.
