More than 3,000 wild animals, including 40 endangered species, are housed at Zoo Miami. Unlike many traditional zoos, animals here are maintained in environments that are close to their natural habitats and are grouped with other species with which they would typically coexist peacefully in the wild.
Feeding the giraffes is one of the most pleasurable activities at the zoo. These gentle giants will astound children as they reach down with their lengthy necks to pick a goodie from their hands.
In the continental United States, this is the only zoo with a subtropical climate. On the grounds, there are over 1,000 different tree and plant species, including a big collection of orchids.
Children will have a plethora of activities to choose from. If the animals bore them, they can go to the play areas and have fun splashing around in the water-themed play area.
