Two-Toe Tom Legend
Deep in the swamps along the border between Alabama and Florida can be heard stories of a water monster of a different sort. It is said that he is more than 20 feet long, has red eyes, and is demon possessed. Two-Toe Tom is the focus of numerous legends and tall tales. His name originates from the claim that he lost all but two toes on one foot to a bear-trap. Due to his ferocity and frequent attacks, many have hunted for Tom. But Two-Toe Tome has never been captured. Some believe Tom still lurks in Sand Hammock Lake near Esto Florida, even to this day.
