I just came back from spending a few days in Fort Lauderdale.
I visited many places while there, Butterfly World, The beach of course, The Tutankhamun Exhibit, The most interesting was Flamingo Gardens. Which is a Wild Animal Rescue and 60 acres of rainforest preserve/exotic gardens.
They had a Florida Panther which is almost extinct. Only 50 known to be in existance. Hummm I thought we (that would be us humans) were past making animals extinct. SAD!!!!
In the wild (not in a preserve) I saw ONE butterfly, ONE Florida Jay, One Mocking bird. lots of Pigeions and lots of Black Birds, Sea Gulls. Oh and ONE squirrel. Had to pay money to see wildlife.
On my way home I took the Everglades Pkwy. Just to see if I could see any wildlife in the WILD..Pitiful..I did see a black hawk not sure what kind of hawk it was, lots of Egrets, and Alligators.
What is up in Florida???!!!!! SHAME..
