Big Pine Key Travel Guide: 26 reviews and 90 photos
Key Deer are a remarkable sub-species of White-tail which grow only to a height of about 2 feet - the size of a medieum-sized dog. They are severely endangered, yet have manage to survive in spite of the relentless pace of "progress". Big Pine Key has the largest population of these miniature critters. They are remarkably tame, which is probably one of the reasons why they are endangered - they don't know well enough to stay off the highways and out of the path of murderous autos and SUVs. Big Pine Key is about halfway between Marathon and Key West - a half-hour drive to either place. Traffic zooms by on US1, but once you get off the highway it's very quiet.
Look at the rack at that 'un!
- In a nutshell:Don't run over Bambi!
There are places on Big Pine Key that do feel "undiscovered" - that's pretty unusual in this much-visited state. more travel advice
