Good stuff!

Is it common to spot manatees overthere?

Some of "my crew" also did Florida a while ago, in case you didn't see these yet

Hi Carl,

It's good to see beautiful wild Pantherophis guttatus instead of the usual ugly corn snakes morphs ;) Is it possible to go to Everglades without being harassed by mosquitoes?
