The Unique Florida Spring That’s Home To Hundreds Of Monkeys
You might expect to see this somewhere close to the Amazon. Perhaps on the outskirts of a resort in a tropical rainforest. But not usually in Florida, unless of course in an enclosure of sorts. However, in this stunning and magical spring, there are hundreds of monkeys who have taken over parts of the area, making this secluded spot in Florida their home.
