    Favorite thing: Rated by experts as one of the best zoos in the world, Miami Metrozoo houses more than 900 wild animals in a 290-acre cage-less environment. Many people who shudder at the thought of exotic animals trapped in small cages will be happy to find some of the world's most endangered wildlife roaming in huge open spaces at the metrozoo. This is the only
    zoo in the continental U.S. located in a subtropical climate. Here you'll find more than 260 species of fauna, including flamingos, chinchillas, giraffes, koalas, kangaroos, Komodo dragons, wart hogs, gorillas, chimpanzees, elephants, Himalayan black bears, unusual white tigers, and other exotic creatures.

    Miami Metrozoo has won several awards for the successful breeding of rare animal species, due largely to the faithful reproduction of the animals' natural habitats.
