It is strangely camera-shy - although, in a quirk of fate eight years ago, one happened to lunge past a campsite at Ochopee, 35 miles southeast of Naples, where self-appointed expert Dave Shealey runs the Skunk Ape Research Headquarters and souvenir shop selling ape-man T-shirts and copies of his Everglades Skunk Ape Research Field Guide.Isn't it funny how the people that get the best sightings of these creatures invariably make money by selling souveneirs about the creatures? LOL! This story reads sort of like a prank
