I visited Zoo Miami recently and took photos of their herp collection while I was there, along with a few of the other zoo residents. I was very impressed with eveyone's enclosures and all the animals looked super healthy. A far cry from the animals at the Paris zoo, some of which were not doing very well! I was also excited to see a few species that I really love, like the Abronias (which were difficult to photograph.) No chameleons, however! Zoo Miami seems to specialize in mostly New World herps.
It was about 11 am, so most of the mammals were already curled up somewhere sleeping off the heat of the day.
Others were out and about, however.
