Back in the 1970s Swampy carried a coquina Pet Rock everywhere he went. Coquina is a solid mixture of various shells and is prominent in Florida.


Studying rocks is studying geology. The geology of Florida is fascinating because of the unique position the peninsula has in this part of the Western Hemisphere. Please take some time and spend it at your local Florida history museum where you are likely to find many examples of the giant Pet Rock we live on in Florida.
