After spending time in Homosassa, our next visit was to the Sarasota area, Lido Key to be exact. Unfortunately, this part of the trip wasn't too exciting because the weather was cold, and even had some tornado warnings. We spent most of Saturday in the hotel room.
The first part of this blog post are photos from my phone. The last part my real camera and my point and shoot camera. So this is a little out of order.
The Myakka State Park was beautiful too. I loved all the trees; it felt so old time Georgia!
1. Crocodiles have a brain the size of an adult's thumbnail (holy heck!).
2. They have a very intricate process of laying their eggs in their nests...they build a hole, lay a bunch of eggs, cover that layer up with leaves and mud, lay more, cover, lay more, cover, etc. etc. I don't remember how many layers, but a lot. The only ones that are born male are the eggs at the top of the layers.
3. Their teeth are hollow and they lose them frequently. More grow in as needed.
Goodbye Sarasota, we are on our way to St. Pete Beach!
