Giant Stone Sea Turtle

A giant sea turtle spotted on land! Yes it’s true, seen here is an artist’s rendition of a turtle proudly stretching his neck high into the air as if saying “Yes, I’m all that!” 🙂 By the way, I’ve found out the artist is locally known as ‘Lighthouse Larry’.

In the past these seafaring creatures have been farmed in Key West for food and approximately 20 of their cousins were brought to Lignumvitae Key as pets! (TRUE, but that’s another blog) 🙂

You can find this giant artistically chiseled in stone sea turtle on US-1 at Mile Marker 81.6 oceanside sitting in front of the Green Turtle Inn (seen below).
