Fanless and I decided to take advantage of Jungle Island’s Resident Promotion ($10 admission for residents of Miami-Dade and Broward counties from September 4th through the 7th) yesterday since neither of us had been there. The last time I visited was on an elementary school field trip when it was still Parrot Jungle and located in Pinecrest (so basically, a reeeeally long time ago).
Just a couple of the parrots that you can pose with right at the entrance to the park.
Pretty nice for a man-made waterfall.
This little Squirrel Monkey is part of the Manu exhibit. So cute! (There’s a short video at the end of the post.)
This guy was also in the Manu exhibit.
Yellow-Naped Amazons and a Blue Mutation of same.
“Orale.” (Mexican Red-Headed Amazon)
This was a really nice change from all the thunderstorms we’ve been having lately.
Gratuitous scenery shot.
At the end of our visit we had the option to upgrade to an annual pass for $15 per person, so we decided to do it (it ended up being a pretty good deal because a regular one day pass is $30 per person and annual pass is $40 per person). We figured that since the park is just a few minutes from the beach, we can go there any time, and it’ll be a nice outing during the cooler months.
