The Wild Life of Wildlife
Welcome to the wildlife of the Everglades.
Why do you suppose we call them wild-life?
All the animals of Everglades National Park are free to roam wherever they like. They are not in cages like you would expect at a zoo, nor are they tame like your cat or dog.
In short, they are wild animals!
Come discover the many different types of wildlife you might find on a visit to the Everglades.
