From their cheeky grin to relatable, sleepy behavior, everyone has a bit of sloth in them, which makes them one of the most relatable and loved animals. At Wild Florida, we're lucky to have a whole family of two-toed sloths. Since people have found out that we have sloths in our Gator and Wildlife Park, they've always asked, "Can I please hold one?" And now... you can!
When we opened our doors in 2010, we wanted to provide an unforgettable Everglades experience that promotes a connection with animals while inspiring education and conservation. Despite being best known for exciting Everglades airboat tours, we opened our Gator and Wildlife Park as a way for people to learn about exotic animals found across the world along with educating them on native animals they might've seen in their backyard. On the blog, learn about our enriching and interactive animal encounters and exhibits and the handful of animals you'll be able to pet when you visit.
From storm drains to golf courses, we've all seen alligators in weird places on the news and, for some of you, probably in your own backyard. But... what about getting up close to them in a fun and safe way? This year, we've added a new and long awaited experience here at Wild Florida... a gator encounter! On the blog, we'll go over four things that could happen during your Gator Encounter at our place.
Any day spent with animals is sure to be one of the best ever and we’re not just saying that because we spend every day with them! They have a way of making you feel loved, even if they’ve never met you before. All of our animal encounters are experiences you’ll never forget and no two are the same... especially when we’re talking about an encounter with our lemurs. Our conspiracy of lemurs in the Gator and Wildlife Park may not have the best reputation due to their loud vocalizations and scary yellow eyes, but we promise they’re really sweet and filled with energy. So, if you're having trouble deciding which animal encounter to adventure on this time, let us tell you about why a lemur encounter at Wild Florida might be the best thing ever.
