Official State Things

A quick list of the "Official" things of Florida
State Bird: The Mockingbird
State Tree: The Sabal Palm
State Flower: The Orange Blossom
State Wildflower: The Coreopsis
State Mammal: The Panther
State Butterfly: The Zebra Longwing
State Beverage: Orange Juice
State Reptile: The Alligator
State Marine Mammal: The Manatee
State Saltwater Mammal: The Porpoise
State Freshwater Fish: The Largemouth Bass
State Saltwater Fish: The Sailfish
State Shell: The Horse Conch

I have no idea what the official state insect is, if there even is one, but I think it would have to be the Mosquito!

Most endangered Florida Mammal? They say it's the Panther. I say no. The most endangered mammal in Florida has got to be the native Floridian.
