The toilet-lurking Two Striped Telamonia spider; sewer rats so huge that people have petted them like dogs; the Fairchid Oak of Ormond Beach, haunted my a male spectre, possibly a suicide; the gash-throated phantom of Luc Simone Aury that haunts the area outsde of the Amelia Island Museum of History, formerly the Old Jail where he was hanged, in Fernandina Beach (his attempt at suicide failed and his throat was stitched by a surgeon but the long drop of the gallows caused his wound to open and shower the horrified spectators with blood - Aury couldn't have planned it better if he had tried!); the Wiccademous Grave of the atmospheric shrimping village Fernandina Beach, on Amelia Island, where the spirit of a witch causes the earth to tremble; and the phantom maid who makes a nuisance of herself in the historic St Francis Inn, St Augstine, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Florida.
