Okefenokee Swamp also has a foot in Florida. Spreading over 438,000 acres, it is the largest peat-based swamp in North America and among the largest such swamps worldwide. Its original name means both "bubbling water" and "trembling earth" in the now extinct Hitichi language and was applied partly because of its spongy bogs.
