Hialeah Zoo Species list


The Hialeah Zoo was founded originally as a small menagerie on private land in the early 1970's. As time passed and the park fell into different management, it was turned into a full scale zoological park. With that said, let's begin.

Behind us is the gift shop, but we'll visit that on the way out.

First is an exhibit for our two resident green iguanas.

Next door is the outdoor enclosure for our boa constrictor, V, who enjoys the steamy South Florida heat when the weather cooperates.

Here's the overview of what we've seen so far.

More coming soon!

Beautiful start. The entrance and foliage are great, and the reptiles exhibits look very nice as well. Excited to see more.

I especially like how the foliage blends seamlessly with the exhibits in a way where you almost can't tell the animals are contained in fencing at all.

Nice start! Reminds me of a tropical version of the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, one of the best zoos in the country. Keep up the good work.

Thank you very much for all the comments! :)
I've considered joining the RTZI before but it's just not for me, I'm not committed enough lol.


Heading down the trail we come to the park's first large exhibit, a paddock for our three Asian Water buffalo.

The buffalo share their enclosure with a pair of Chinese geese, and the two species get on well.
Posted Image

Technically, the geese can leave the enclosure whenever they want by simply slipping under the rope fence. However, they tend to spend most of their time in the buffalo pond.

Thanks for viewing!

This is a perfect way to sum it up! I agree you should totally join the RTZI, but if not it's still a great zoo!

Thanks for all the amazing comments guys, I really appreciate it!
Directly opposite the water buffalo is a large enclosure housing our trio of red kangaroos as well as our emu pair.
Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

The kangaroos spend a lot of time lounging in the shade towards the back of the enclosure, while the emus wander around in the 'moat'
Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

A little further down is a small aviary for our two kookaburra. We have a blue winged male and a laughing female housed here.
Posted Image

The two species get along quite well. Here, the blue-winged preens while the laughing forages on the ground. Posted Image

Next is the zoo's first themed area!

Very good job with the foliage, however I feel like the low branches might be a bit too low for the emus and kangaroos, I feel like they're going to run into them accidentally. :P

Looking forward to seeing the first themed area, great so far. I particularly like the architecture of the kookaburra aviary
