There are many great Miami attractions where you can see wildlife - from dolphins to crocodiles to monkeys and more. Here we list the best places in Miami to see these creatures. (Attractions are listed in alphabetical order.)

Everglades Alligator Farm
The Everglades Alligator Farm is home to over 2,000 alligators of various sizes. Visit them for a fun Everglades experience, including airboat tours, and nature walks to see alligators, crocodiles, and other wildlife.

Gator Park
Located deep in the Everglades, this is a fun place to see alligators, snakes, turtles, and birds. You can also witness alligator wrestling, hold a baby gator, and take an airboat ride through Everglades National Park.

Jungle Island
The park has several daily animal shows featuring majestic tigers, exotic birds, and more. Don't miss Crocosaurus - the biggest crocodile in the New World.

Miami Metrozoo
Considered one of the best in the world, Miami's zoo has over 1,200 animals, which are divided into geographic areas including Asia, Africa, The Americas and Australia.

Miami Seaquarium
Shows include the Flipper Dolphin Show and the Killer Whale and Dolphin Show. Explore the park to see coral reef fish, manatees, sharks, crocodiles, sea turtles, parrots, serpents and more.

Monkey Jungle
This lesser-known Miami attraction is an amazing place to experience a jungle safari adventure. It is truly different because, as their theme states - the "humans are caged and monkeys run wild."

Swimming with Dolphins
South Florida has so many wonderful activities to choose from, but one of the most special and unique is the chance to swim with trained dolphins.
