This place is small, but man, it's awesome, and makes for a killer photo op, especially if you're into weird roadside stops. The Skunk Ape is basically Florida's very own version of Bigfoot, and this is one of the few places that you can buy some bizarre merchandise dedicated specifically to him.

Also, you can buy blow guns. Guys. Blow guns. To hunt the Skunk Ape with.

My daughter and I stopped on our way to the Keys. They have plenty of animals to see and touch! Very inexpensive and interesting!
