Miami’s Monkey Jungle’s slogan is “Where humans are caged and monkeys run wild!”
At Miami’s Monkey Jungle, it’s the humans that are caged while the monkeys roam around freely. There are caged walkways throughout the 30 acre reserve that visitors can stroll though and the monkeys climb around in the natural habitats.
There are 30 species and more than 400 primates at the Monkey Jungle including: spider monkeys, gorillas, howler monkeys, orangutans, squirrel monkeys, crab-eating macaque monkeys and gibbons.
A great way to interact with the monkeys is to put seeds and raisins in bowls that hang inside the caged walkways and the monkeys will pull the bowls up for their treats.
There is also an aviary at the Monkey Jungle where beautiful and exotic birds lives. All the birds are captive birds and have been adopted from people could no longer care for them.
The birds live in dome homes filled with natural foliage and room to fly around in them.
The Monkey Jungle is home to an Amazonian Rainforest – the only semi-natural rainforest in North America. Several species of monkeys call the rainforest home.
Visitors can sit and relax by the wild monkey swimming pool where you can see monkeys splashing around and playing in the water.
