One allure of Everglades National Park is the varied species of animals that inhabit the open fields, hammocks and lowland swamps. This is the only place the world over where alligators and crocodiles coexist. Venture on marked trails and elevated boardwalks where cypress and mangrove trees grow in standing water and observe anhingas, butterflies and herons.
