We went on a Thursday morning. At first we thought admission was a little steep for a zoo, but after spending a few hours there we realized this was no ordinary zoo. The animals there are no ordinary animals, many of them are extremely rare and/or different animals than you usually see. After our few hours there we understood why it cost that much, and you really get your money's worth here. They let you get up close and personal to many animals, like the parrots and the kangaroos. Being able to pet Kangaroos was a real highlight of our trip to Miami. And they seemed to be enjoying their time living in the zoo. I've seen Kangaroos at the state fair look miserable, but here they were very friendly and happy, The bird show was just jaw dropping. I loved all the tricks from the parrots, and the condor flying over us was a sight to be seen. The best part was seeing the rare Cassowary, he was so cool! Almost like a live dinosaur. After that we walked the rest of the zoo, and it's nice how most of it looks like a "jungle" so you're in the shade and not dying of that Miami sun. The look of the zoo was really cool, better than normal zoos. I liked the theme. We saw the tiger/wild cat show in the afternoon and it was just OK. We liked the liger (lion and tiger mixed) they had outside the show though, I've never seen one before. He even scared me. The only complaint is that I bought a coke there, and it cost 4 dollars. That's extreme. Don't buy their drinks, way to expensive.
