Do not feed wildlife!
At the headwaters of the Silver River, at Silver Springs park, at the glass bottom boat dock, this sign stands as a warning. Feeding wildlife makes them less afraid of humans and could lead to the notion on the part of the wildlife that a human is good to eat. So, if you visit Silver Springs State Park, please refrain from feeding bears, foxes, bobcats, alligators, snakes, armadillos or other such critters. Squirrels and pigeons, I would guess, are exempt from that prohibition.
