Wildlife in Lake Caroline:
It is easy to think that an animal will simply move somewhere else when people clear a piece of land to build a house, a road or a shopping mall. However, like people, many species need their own space and do not like to
be crowded together. They have homes and territories and do not like intruders moving in.
In Lake Caroline we have several different species of animals and reptiles. Although some can be cute, we do have a few that can be a problem, as well as some that are just plain scary. Always be on the lookout when outside in your yard, in common areas such as the park or the club house, and on or near the water. Most creatures will not bother you if you give them their space.
