  • Florida State Symbols
  • The symbol I chose for my paragraph is the state pie. The state pie is Key lime pie. As you can guess Key lime pie is a desert made from Key limes. Key Lime Pie was first found in Key West, Florida in the late 1800's. There was a debate whether the key lime pie or the pecan pie should be the state pie. Key lime won. The Key lime pie became our state pie in 2006. It became a symbol because the state government realized it was an important part of Florida history. Many people like this dessert and many other pies. This dish is named after the many Key limes that are throughout Florida. Inside the pie it isn't green, it's yellow. Personally I don't like any kinds of pie. That's just the way I am.
  • The state saltwater mammal is the porpoise or dolphin. Usually in Florida both names refer to the bottle nose dolphin. Porpoises are a different saltwater mammal and are not commonly found in Florida waters.
  • Dolphin
  • The state heritage horse is the Florida cracker horse. Florida designated the Florida cracker horse as the official state heritage horse in 2008. The Florida cracker horse may also be called marsh tacky.
