The Sarasota Jungle Gardens is a living museum in Sarasota, Florida. It is both a zoological and botanical park that houses a wide variety of plant and animal life. The site is also known for showcasing rescued animals.
The Sarasota Jungle Gardens traces its roots back to the 1920s, when the area was once called by the city as ?an impenetrable swamp?. By the 1930s, local newspaperman David Breed Lindsay transformed it into a botanical garden and was opened to the public. By the 1940s, it has already adapted its current form, and was bought by its current owners, the Allyn family.
The Sarasota Jungle Gardens offers a 10 acre park that presents 5 shows which feature the animals and some rare plants.
