Alligators & Other Animals
The Everglades National Park is known for its vast wildlife. Hundreds of bird species, many of which are on the endangered or threatened list, reside here. Large wading birds, such as the roseate spoonbill, great blue heron, white ibis and a variety of egrets, as well as the osprey, also call the Miami Everglades home. Your Everglades airboat safari will introduce you to many of the native creatures who call Florida home.
Of course, the marine life includes the main attraction, more than 200,000 alligators. American crocodiles also frequent the area, as well as local fish. Other wildlife in the Everglades includes the white-tailed deer, more than 28 different snakes – a few of which are venomous - and the endangered Florida panther.
