It was a funky place situated in an old fish freezer. The menu is very limited with not much on it besides good old American potato chips, chips & salsa, smoked mullet dip, peal & eat shrimp, blue crabs & Maine lobster.
Cold weather and water send Tampa Bay's gentle giants in search of warmth. Sometimes, that's where the Hillsborough River flows out, but that's not where manatees want to be when the flotilla arrives Saturday morning.
The Disney parks keep a notoriously tight grip on their props and property whether it is in use or not, so it is somewhat surprising that River Country, the very first Walt Disney World waterpark has been allowed to rot in ruin to this very day.
Following the success of his original skeleton museum in Oklahoma City, skull expert Jay Villamette opened this new, even larger attraction in Orlando. His two museums remain the only skeleton museums in the country. Fortunately, they’re both extensive.
Located in Walt Disney World’s Bay Lake, Discovery Island was opened as a lush zoological park, but after its closing it was left to deteriorate despite some terrific ideas on how to reopen the attraction.

It’s a strange world we live in when we celebrate the idea that a species might actually survive through the next century. It’s all become so fragile that small victories can feel like big wins – but regardless, a new study predicting that Florida’s iconic manatees can survive another 100 years is cause for cheer.
While the impacts from hurricanes are tragically obvious on land, it’s hard to imagine how it affects the ocean’s inhabitants. But it does. And in the case of a manatee from Tampa, Florida, this fall’s hurricanes were nearly fatal.
Kali’na is a manatee, also called a sea cow—a relative of elephants, which look sort of like walruses. Manatees in the wild live in rivers in warm climates: West Africa, the Amazon, the West Indies, and Florida, where there is a Manatee County and a Manatee River.
