The Zoo Miami (formerly Miami Metro Zoo), is considered by many as one of the top 10 zoos in America. There are over 100 exhibits with more than 2,000 animals and 500 species. This includes over 40 endangered species. Residents of the zoo include Cuban crocodiles, the Asian Small-clawed Otter, meerkats, otters, Freshwater Stingrays, and more. There’s also more than 1,200 plants throughout the zoo and in the gardens. If you have small children, the Children’s Zoo inside is a lot of fun.
