Take a walk on the wild side with the brand new Sawgrass Reptile Exhibit Private Tour! Your group will have exclusive access to our exhibit areas for 1 hour.
Take a walk on the wild side back in time with an original dinosaur, the Florida alligator! Our reptile exhibit features dozens of species, both native and exotic to Florida. Along with our friendly turtles and iguanas, you can learn about Cannibal, our 1000 pound alligator. Our handlers are happy to demonstrate how these animals live and survive in the wild. We also have a variety of monitors and rescued exotic snakes. Be sure to bring your camera so you can capture the excitement of our “Meet a Baby Alligator” experience. Presentations are included in all the Exhibit Areas!
While you are at Sawgrass Recreational Park, don’t miss our Glades Exhibit! Learn the history of the Glades and some current subjects of importance to its conservation efforts.
While you are in this exhibit check out the brand new Sawgrass Mining Co. area where you can mine for gems and sharks teeth for an additional fee.
Check out our African Spur Thigh Tortoises who range in size from 20 pounds to over 100 pounds! Their species can live to over 100 years old, our oldest tortoise is estimated to be 50 years old!
Handsome and Cracker Jack are our resident Iguanas. Many of these animals have been brought to South Florida over the last few years and are now one of the main invasive species in the area. They love berries, greens and especially star fruit and papaya. We often mist them with the hose and watch them close their eyes and enjoy the shower.
We also showcase 2 beautiful peacocks, Ed and Max who are free roaming around the park. They often make loud honking noises when they are looking for one another. These guys are very friendly so don’t be alarmed if they waddle right up to you looking for a snack!
