Not so. I was amazed to see how little the solitude and splendor of the Keys had changed. Some locals I spoke with seemed to feel otherwise but, even though there are now vastly more inhabitants and visitors, most of the glorious natural heritage of the Keys has been preserved. Few high-rise condos exist. Certainly, there are more roadside attractions (and many of them are cheesy), but the reasons I loved the Keys when I was growing up - pristine waters, good fishing and diving, the pervasive bohemian community in Key West - are still there.
I suggest you park by the side of the road in a place where you can see well down the road in either direction. Turn off the motor and wait inside the car for a half-hour or so. The small deer are frequent visitors to Little Palm Island, wandering about the place like dogs. Insects Any entomologist will tell you there are hundreds more insect species in the Everglades and the Keys than all the other types of living creatures combined. You will rarely be aware of more than a few - mosquitoes, no-see-ums, green flies, horse flies and common houseflies are about all you will notice.
Some biologists say these traits in themselves are evidence of inbreeding. Heart defects and low motility of panther sperm are believed to be the result of inbreeding or of high mercury levels found in their prey. Although most panthers live in central Florida, an estimated population of five live in Everglades National Park, isolated by the waters of Shark River Slough. The numbers in the park are small because the wet nature of the area means fewer of their natural prey - deer and wild pigs - are found.
