Miami has one of the best zoos in America has to offer and with the tropical Miami weather the Miami zoo houses all types of animals from all over the world. The zoo was one of the first free-range zoos in the country and the exhibits are entirely cageless. Animals are put together based on what part of the world they originated from. They put all the animals together and that can live together peacefully.
There is a new exhibit area called Amazon and Beyond featuring animals from South America including everything from jaguars to vipers.
