Zoo Miami: What to expect from the very large zoo just south of Miami

Did you know Miami had a famous zoo? Well, it does. We visit Zoo Miami while we stay at Larry & Penny Thompson Park celebrating our first RVing anniversary.
We came the the Zoo Miami, formerly the Metro Zoo, with very low expectations. We had heard that the place was too large, that the animals were hiding away most of the time because of the South Florida heat, and while the place is far from perfect we were pleasantly surprised. That being said it is Miami after all. We don’t really ever expect great service or attention to detail. We came early enough that most of the animal were still out and about and we got lucky with the timing and caught a couple of the animal feedings, particularly the monkeys and the tiger. The place is too large, too spread out, which means miles will be walked under the scorching sun. Enjoy the video
