Jungle Island, one of Miami's best entertainment destinations, is located in the heart of the city between Downtown Miami and South Beach. The multifaceted grounds host Miami's newest theme park, home to the world's most rare and incredible animals. Guests marvel at the engaging animal shows and presentations, participate in hands-on interactions with fascinating animals, and are amazed by the park's breathtaking landscapes and vistas.
Jungle Island is showing off their exhibit, the "Lemur Experience" featuring the "Lovable Lemurs" from Madagascar. You are able to have an encounter with these soft, little critters yourselves. Holding their tiny bodies in your hands and feeding them is such a feeling, it just may bring a tear to your eye. Meet the fantastic Animal Trainers who will guide and provide you with an educational and fun presentation.
Native only to the island of Madagascar, Lemurs are considered very rare in the animal kingdom.Some species of Lemurs have actually gone extinct as a result of habitat destruction. The Red-Ruffed Lemurs on Jungle Island are classified as either endangered or threatened.
The 45-minute experience brings small groups of guests, no more than six at a time, into the park's Lemur Nursery, where the young ones are growing up and developing. Lemurs are all are very energetic as they play around their cages. These prosimians can grow up to be 24 inches and love eating.
Before the interaction begins, guests are educated about the Lemurs' natural habitat, diet and habits and are advised of the best way to pet them and feed them their favorite treat - juicy grapes. When everyone is comfortable, the Lemurs come out to meet their newest friends (and servers)! Quite the rambunctious crowd, the Lemurs often make themselves right at home either on guests' laps, shoulders or heads. After a Lemur has leaped off of your head, you will never be quite the same! They are truly a wonder to witness in person! Jungle Island invites you to this experience.
The Jungle is also home to some new and unique animal friends including a camel, a family of prairie dogs and a family of marmosets (the world's smallest primates)!
See spectacular animal shows including Winged Wonders, featuring the most lethal bird on the planet, and Tale of the Tiger, highlighting the world's most rare cats. And the newest show, the Adventures of Dr. Wasabi, where you are taken on a virtual safari around the world.
