Gopher Tortoises

Sawgrass is proud to showcase Gopher Tortoises in the exhibit. Our park is one of the only locations in Broward County to showcase this currently classified vulnerable species for educational purposes. Our Gopher's were rescued as babies by FWC from a construction site.

Iguanas

Handsome and Cracker Jack are our resident Iguanas. Many of these animals have been brought to South Florida over the last few years and are now one of the main invasive species in the area. They love berries, greens and especially star fruit and papaya. We often mist them with the hose and watch them close their eyes and enjoy the shower.

Peacocks

We also showcase 2 beautiful peacocks, Ed and Max who are free roaming around the park. They often make loud honking noises when they are looking for one another.

These guys are very friendly so don't be alarmed if they waddle right up to you looking for a snack!
Look for Ed and Max!
Please note that the variety of animals on display may change from day to day and there is no guarantee of specific animals at any time. Tours may be cancelled due to inclement weather or circumstances beyond our control.
