August 27, 2013 - Kenansville, Florida - Wild Florida (www.wildfloridairboats.com), an airboat tour and alligator exhibit attraction, is pleased to announce the addition of two Green Winged Macaws in Orlando to their Wildlife Park exhibit.
The Green-winged Macaw, also known as the Red-and-Green Macaw, comes from South America and is a great addition to the wildlife park at Wild Florida. The Green-winged Macaw is second only in size to the Hyacinth Macaw, the largest bird in the Macaw family. Their wingspan can reach up to 49 inches and they have a total body length of about 35-37 inches. The two healthy adults can weigh between 2.5-3.5 pounds. Each Macaw has unique red lines around the eyes that are formed by rows of tiny feathers.
“We are very excited to add these two beautiful Macaws to our wildlife park.” states Sam Haught, co-found of Wild Florida. “We want to give our visitors a glance at the beautiful nature of Florida, and we are happy that we can continue to introduce new wildlife to our park to give our visitors a unique experience.”
To see the Macaws and other wildlife that Wild Florida has to offer, you can purchase a Wildlife Park ticket for $18 for adults and $15 for Children. If you want to experience all that Wild Florida has to offer, book a half hour or hour long airboat tour and you can explore the Wildlife Park for free.
