At this 23-acre wild kingdom you can admire more than 125 species of animals, from the Florida panther to the giant Aldabra tortoise. Kids enjoy the zone that honors Central and South America with jaguars, capybaras, and tapirs, plus Mayan structures, stone sculptures, and foliage that make it seem like you're not in Florida anymore. A sizeable Australian section with koalas, emus, and wallabies is also popular as are the daily animal shows. On sweltering afternoons, kids
can cool off at the large play fountain and catch a breeze on the carousel.
