There is a hidden spot in Southwest Florida where the animals run (and swim) free. If you're looking for something cool to do, this nature preserve in Florida has a pack of free-roaming llamas. You can reach this unusual destination by kayak or stand-up paddleboard on Telegraph Creek.

Telegraph Creek is a tributary of the Caloosahatchee River, according to Florida Rambler, *where kayakers and paddleboarders are often enjoying the outdoors.

Along the way, visitors might be lucky enough to see llamas, sheep, goats, and cattle on their journey. *The llamas, roaming down from a private property along the creek, are often seen grazing, resting, or wading through the creek. Florida Rambler reports that the llamas are domesticated, living on a nearby farm.

The llamas have become the main attraction on this kayaking trail. Many people have snapped photos of these unusual animals on their expeditions through Telegraph Creek. 

Telegraph Creek also boasts picturesque giant oaks arched gracefully over the water, creating a natural tunnel for kayakers and paddleboarders to glide through on their way to the preserve.
