We arrived at our hotel in Florida after midnight, when all the nocturnal animals are out.
Apparently armadillos live in Florida, so we got to see a wild one in the parking lot as we walked from the car to the hotel.
The armadillo wasn’t the only little critter we encountered on our Florida trip.
Squirrels and ducks were everywhere around the parks, begging for food and often receiving it.
There were a few heron-like birds (later learned they’re called ibis) begging everywhere as well. Begging seems to be the best way for an animal to feed itself in Disney World.
There were songbirds flying around as well. One in particular would land on our hotel balcony after we were done eating breakfast out there and eat up all our crumbs.
There was another songbird that attacked the window of a restaurant we ate at. According to the waitress, the bird attacks its reflection during mating season to show off for its mate.
Unfortunately, the little songbirds were too fast to take pictures.
I did manage to snap some photos of some quick little lizards that liked to sun themselves on the sidewalks around town.
The lizards camouflaged themselves against the sidewalk and skittered away when we got close to stepping on them.
There were also fish in the many lakes that dot the Disney World Resort, but too many people were crowded around the fish to get a good shot.
So not only is Disney World full of tourists, its also full of animals for the tourists to take pictures of!
