The Miami Metro Zoo Animals

Those zoophiles whose ideal vacations would be to spend hours roaming about a cageless zoo in which the animals outnumber the human visitors will be thrilled by a visit to the Miami Metro Zoo. The more than 117 developed hectares of the Miami Metro Zoo are located some forty-five minutes inland from the Miami beach scene, so the Miami Metro Zoo seldom has large crowds at any of its more than eighty African, Asian, and Australian animal exhibits, which are home to more than thirteen hundred individual animals.

Because the only things separating the different species of animals are moats which appear to be a natural part of the habitat landscapes, the Miami Metro Zoo give its visitors the sense of viewing these exotic creatures much as they would appear in the wild. Zookeepers talk throughout each day at different animal exhibits, so that zoo visitors can get more detailed information the individual species. The topics cover everything from pelican feeding to the habits of the elephants, giraffes, rhinos, and pigmy hippos.

The Australian Exhibit is home to koala bears, red and tree kangaroos, and rather vociferous New Guinea singing dogs. Its African and Asian habitats include both Asian and African elephants, lions, white tigers, leopards, Himalayan black bears and Malayan sun bears, gazelles and antelopes of several species, and lowland gorillas and chimpanzees.

The Miami Metro Zoo’s Public Tram Tours and Monorail are the best ways to see all its inhabitants in a single visit. Or, if it’s too hot to walk among the live animal exhibits, there’s the Wild earth Jeep Simulator which for $5 USD will take its riders on a virtual safari. The Metro Zoo is open all year from 9:30 to 5:30. Admission is $11.50 USD for those 12 and up and $6.75 USD for children.

The Ramada Limited South Miami/Dadeland is less than ten minutes from the Miami Metro Zoo, and adjacent to the Dadeland Shopping Mall, one of the largest indoor shopping malls in the entire US.
