The Blue Hole on the island of Big Pine Key is the only fresh water lake in the Florida Keys. It is an abandoned rock quarry. The water is mostly fresh, sitting on a meniscus of salt water underneath; it is used by the area birds, snakes, alligators, key deer and green iguanas. It is part of the National Key Deer Refuge.
