Florida’s oceans contain pelagic such as sea turtles, sharks, whales, and sailfish with its elongated bill and distinctive sail that often stretches the entire length of its back.
The reefs contain a vast array of tropical species such as the foureye butterflyfish with a large, false eye near its fin which may exist to confuse predators. Wonderful midnight parrot fish have patches of moonlight on their otherwise dark, blue scales.
The corals are alive with knobbly sea rods – grey and naked like a tree after a forest fire – and stony symmetrical brain coral.
If the manatees haven’t satisfied you, then during the summer months lemon sharks can be found in the shallower waters around the reefs.
Due to Florida’s popularity during the summer months, human beings can also be observed behaving strangely in its oceans.
