An Afternoon at the Miami Metrozoo (Pictures)

Located 22 miles southwest of Miami Beach, the Metrozoo houses more than 900 wild animals in a cageless setting that closely approximates the animals' natural habitats, giving the visitor a feeling of embarking on an international safari.

Large, open-air exhibits allow visitors to view beautiful and endangered wildlife at a safe yet close range. With over 300 developed acres on a 740-acre parcel of land, Metrozoo is the only zoo in the continental United States located in a subtropical climate. This enables the Zoo to showcase animals that cannot easily be exhibited in colder climates. Trek through Asia and see Asian River Otters, Komodo Dragons, and Bengal Tigers. Hike the African plains with giraffes, zebras and lions. Walk about Australia with koalas, kangaroos and wallabies.
