Miami Car Rental and the Miami Metrozoo
Imagine embarking on a safari across the African Savannah. To your left you see an assortment of grazing animals like zebras and gazelles. To you right you find lions lounge beneath a shade tree. It's moments like these that make you appreciate the ebb and flow of nature. But wait... this isn't an African Safari. Aren't you just at the Miami Metrozoo? A visit to the Miami Metrozoo provides Miami car rental customers with a similar safari experience, thanks in part to a completely cage-less facility. One of the first free-range zoos in the country, the Miami Metrozoo provides visitors with a realistic portrayal of animals in their natural habitats. Animals are all grouped according to their geographic territory, and housed together in peaceful interaction. Predators are kept separate from herbivores by steep moats instead of metal bars, creating a humane and safe atmosphere. Miami car rental visitors are invited to look out over a simulated African plain and see animals commingling much like those of a real safari. No other zoo provides visitors with such a humane look life in the wild, so why wait? Plan to visit the Metrozoo during your upcoming Miami car rental vacation.
Endangered rhinos and artistic elephants: It's all here!
Visitors to the Miami Metrozoo will find a number of exciting animal exhibits, including a number dedicated to saving critically endangered species. Two of the newest additions to the zoo include a critically endangered baby addux named Abacus and a critically endangered baby black rhino. Miami car rental customers will also find white tigers, gibbons, Cuban crocodiles and komodo dragons throughout the zoo, as well as the usual lions, tigers and bears. Continental Miami Car Rental highly recommends taking the time to stop by the elephant exhibit as well. One of the resident elephants enjoys painting in his spare time, providing onlookers with a clever display of trunk techniques. From there it's onto the new American Bankers Family Aviary Wings of Asia exhibit. This new addition is recognized as the largest open-air aviary in American and includes more than 300 rare and endangered bird species. The main focus of this exhibit deals with the link between birds and dinosaurs. Most of the birds within the aviary are closely related and it is believed that many of them may be direct descendents of the giants.
All the Zoo's a Stage
The Miami Metrozoo is proudly going where no zoo has gone before, foraying into the world of dramatic arts and culture. Partnered with the Miami Performing Arts Center, Metrozoo presents a number of live dramatic performances daily throughout the zoo. A number of squads currently perform all over the facility, including inside the aviary and outside of major exhibits. The "Flying Squad" often pops up unannounced so remember to watch out for wings! This is the first-ever production by the Performing Arts Center and zoo visitors can't help but love it. The Miami Metrozoo is also home to a number of traditional presentations including annual events and educational programs. If you're planning on participating in some of these activities Continental Miami Car Rentals recommends getting to the zoo early. The facility consists of more than 300 acres of animal exhibits and 740 acres of total area. An entire day is needed to enjoy the zoo completely. If you're not a huge fan of walking, Miami car rental clients can also opt to rent one of the two- or four-seat bicycle carriages from the entrance. This will help cut down your travel time significantly.
The Miami Metrozoo is a great outdoor family vacation destination. With over 8,000 shade trees and plenty of foliage, the zoo provides Miami car rental travelers with the perfect natural experience. Miami car rental customers are invited to visit the zoo daily from 9:30am to 5:30om. Admission is just $12 for adults and $7 for children. Miami car rental customers will find the zoo entrance at 152nd Street and 124th Avenue. For more information please feel free to visit the official Miami Metrozoo website at www.miamimetrozoo.com.
