If it moves and doesn't have feathers, you'll find it on this page. This is our collection of amphibians, crustaceans, insects, mammals, reptiles and spiders we've found and photographed in South Florida. For each animal, we detail its habits, habitat, what it eats, whether it's native or invasive, how common it might be, its range and other nuts and bolts. As with our other pages, the process of documenting the animals who live here is ongoing, and our list of animals will be updated as we spot and photograph more creatures.
