About Sarasota Jungle Gardens:
Sarasota Jungle Gardens features 10 acres of lush tropical vegetation, winding jungle trails and entertaining, educational bird and reptile shows throughout the day. Established in 1939, Sarasota Jungle Gardens is home to more than 200 native and exotic animals, including birds of prey, many different species of parrots and macaws, free-roaming flamingos, primates, small mammals, dozens of snakes, lizards, iguanas, crocodiles and other reptiles. Many of the animals found their home at Sarasota Jungle Gardens through approved private donations or through state and federal agencies that wanted to ensure these animals would live in a safe environment and permanent, caring home.
