Did You Know?
The Myakka Skunk Ape is Florida's Bigfoot?  These hairy creatures stand up to 7 feet tall and can weigh more than 450 pounds.  Skunk Ape sightings are reported throughout Florida but most often in the wilderness of the Everglades.  Evidence suggests that Skunk Apes spend a great deal of time in underground caverns or alligator caves.  Many people believe that methane gas emitted by decaying matter in these low lying areas are what gives the Skunk Ape its unique skunky / rotten egg odor.

This is postcard number 12 in a limited edition of 50 and was created by Michelle Mullins.
