Some of the other exotic critters include:
- 21-foot python (capable of eating large mammals!)
- rare mammals (pygmy marmosets, red-ruffed lemurs)
- native Florida amphibians and reptiles (snakes)
- Komodo dragon (below)
Check out Maximo: he is a 15' 3", 1,250 pound, Australian alligator and the largest animal in the park.
The most amazing aspect of this place though is the native rookery of wading birds (herons, egrets, ibis, spoonbills, wood storks). Literally hundreds of birds nest here because of the security provided by the hundreds of alligators in the park.
