Florida Key’s ONLY Rhino

IMG_1683Did you know that the Florida Keys actually has a Rhino? NO, there’s no zoo in the Keys, but there is a Rhino!

Standing a good 16′ in the air is this 8 foot long monstrosity of a beast that is an attraction of its own to say the least. From an angle it looks like this armored muscular mass sits on top of the Safari Lounge sign but is not. The sign and Rhinoceros are impossible to miss on your trip down the Keys.

You can see this Rhino for yourself at Mile Marker 73.8 on US-1 oceanside by pulling into the parking lot of the gas station next door. While here just look around and you’ll see plenty more to photograph in front of and behind the station. (ie… murals, anchor, cannon, bronze fishing statue, tiki hut & more)
