Speaking personally, the iguana is not our favorite creature here in these sub-tropical Keys. Those reptiles enjoy bright and beautiful flowers—the hibiscus and bougainvillea—for example, as do we. We humans love to look at them, but iguanas love to eat them!

The pelican has a protection mechanism that is awesome! That skilled "fisherman" bird can dive from a 65-foot height, slam into the water, and scoop up a bag full of fish and-water into the built-in pouch he carries under his lower jaw. (That pouch can even contain 2 gallons of water filled with fish at one time!) Then the pelican will find a handy perch and let the water drain from the pouch before swallowing his catch of fish.

Research shows that Florida beaches account for a third of the world population of loggerhead turtles. And one of the most intriguing facts about these turtles is that when the adult females return to lay their eggs, they return—not by accident—to the very area where they themselves were born some 30 years earlier. The reason it is so intriguing is that these turtles have travelled huge distances, many across the Atlantic Ocean, yet they still find their way back to their first home beach! But the Creator, not by accident, early-on placed a sophisticated directional system into the two-inch-long loggerhead hatchlings that crawl up out of the sandy nest hole where they've spent two months incubating with their 50 to 150 siblings. The mother loggerhead turtle dug the nest about two feet deep and a foot wide in a place as close as possible to the sea, yet just beyond the water line at the beach. It was a not-by-accident placement of the nest—done for the very survival of her babies who must get into the water quickly for safety's sake.
