Jungle Island

About:
1111 Jungle Island Trail, Miami, FL 33132 305-400-7000

Description: WATSON ISLAND. Tropical birds have the run of this unusual island park off MacArthur Causeway. Approximately 1100 macaws, parrots and other winged residents join giant reptiles and exotic primates to impart special character to the attraction. Although the 18 landscaped acres showcase some 500 species of plants and flowers, don't come expecting peace and quiet ­ some of the opinionated inhabitants are neither shy nor retiring. Be sure to catch a performance ­ the sight of a parrot riding a miniature bike is enough to make even the most jaded visitor smile. Other shows include Winged Wonders (singing Amazons and Andean condors), Reptile Giants (snakes, alligators, crocodiles) and Wild Encounters (apes, tigers, even a liger).
