All of the Florida "wild" parrots are escapees from the pet trade. You see them fairly often in S. Florida. A lot of them seem to be Amazon mixed breeds - though there is often enough variation in the Amazon parrots (even in the pure bred species) that it is hard to tell them apart. Occasionally you see Quaker nests and there are so many at once that it is quite a sight.

The reptile pets also seem to be taking to Florida. I have seen gekkos in Daytona (where I grew up ) and in Tallahassee and you used to never see them either place. In S. Florida, there are all kinds of lizards on the loose.

I'll have to check in to one of the on-line sites-- though most of the photos in my collection so far are from my P and S.
