AAA Editor Notes

Jungle Island is at 1111 Parrot Jungle Tr. on Watson Island. Step into a lush, tropical jungle on an island in Biscayne Bay and mingle with birds, monkeys and some of the world's rarest creatures. Highlights at the 18-acre garden sanctuary include Vulcan, a 900-pound lion-tiger hybrid; and Peanut and Pumpkin, rare twin orangutans. You'll also see chimpanzees, exotic birds, kangaroos, lemurs, alligators and snakes, among others. Vultures fly just inches above the heads of the audience during The Winged Wonders show, which is also where you'll see the colorful, ostrichlike cassowary and the sanctuary's signature performing cockatoo. Wild Encounter, an up-close, uncaged show, features tigers, panthers, lynxes, leopards and cougars as well as guest appearances by a few of the resident orangutans, chimpanzees and lemurs. Journey to the Florida Everglades and see flora and fauna from the region without leaving the park as you wander through the Everglades Habitat & Walk exhibit. Children enjoy the hands-on petting barn with its African pygmy goats, llama, pigs and cows, and opening each summer is Parrot Cove, the sanctuary's private beach featuring inflatable waterslides and bounce houses. Periodic animal feedings and presentations round out Jungle Island's daily offerings, and for an even closer encounter with the park's exotic animals, you can reserve behind-the-scenes VIP Experiences or partake in Lemurs Up-Close or Hanging with Sloths. Rental strollers and wheelchairs are available. Time: Allow 4 hours minimum.
