Visitor Tips and News About Linger Lodge - Taxidermy Trove
One of the "five weirdest restaurants in the world" [according to Al Roker]. Taxidermy heaven from gators and snake to coyotes and rooster. Eat on the porch overlooking the Braden River. Plenty of fried gator.[Deb Dila, 03/07/2011]
Aside from the rustic restaurant's dense presentation of mounted native Florida wildlife, there's a jackalope and an "Alaskan Fur Fish."
