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.

Did You Know?

Soft-Shell Turtle

Soft-shell turtles may not have the protective hard covering seen on other turtles, but they make up for that with relatively greater speeds in the water. Also, their long noses are well adapted for snorkeling. These amazing animals seem perfectly built for a life in the Everglades!
