"Long Key, a narrow ribbon of park containing 965 acres, could just as easily have been named Narrow Key. In some places the oceanfront boundary is only a hundred yards from U.S. Highway 1, and the traffic is clearly visible from the beach. The Spanish called Long Key Cayo Vivora, meaning “Rattlesnake Key.” Fortunately, this description applied more to the shape of the island—a rattlesnake with its jaws open—than the resident fauna. Wading birds and raccoons are the most commonly seen animals."
