Despite similar admission prices, comparing Flamingo Gardens with Zoo Miami is just plain idiotic. The Davie animal sanctuary is devoid of any of the animal superstars (elephants, giraffes, meerkats, and camel back riding) and is a heck of a lot smaller (8.1% the size of Dade’s super zoo). Regardless, it’s still worth a visit on a sunny weekend afternoon on a slow Sunday. With attractions such as monster-sized alligators, Florida panthers, Broward’s 2nd highest peak, a free flight aviary, an old school tram ride, and a Jurassic era turtle hybrid, you’re bound to have a blast.

Recently, I had the chance to visit the 60 acre wildlife sanctuary and snapped a handful of photos. To liven up the post, I decided to tweak the pics a bit. Here are some photos from Flamingo Gardens….through the glazed eyes of a Jam Cruise passenger.
