An absolute must if you are an outdoor enthusiasts. Beautiful grounds and gorgeous views of Florida even on a cloudy day. $14 to enter per adult so it is reasonable price. Could spend a whole day there, relaxing and taking in the views.

Can't say I seen any when I was there. You would be best asking the people who work there as they would have more of an insight to creatures that live there.
