The "Palm Beach Zoo At Dreher Park" is located at 1301 Summit Blvd, West Palm Beach, FL 33405. It's open every day (except Thanksgiving and Christmas) from 9 AM to 5 PM.

Although the Palm Beach Zoo is much smaller than the massive Miami MetroZoo, it has a great collection of animals and activities.

There are about 1,700 unique animal species spread out across the Palm Beach Zoo's 23 acres of property just east of I-95 and just south of the Palm Beach International (PBI) airport.

Since we're members of the Zoological Society of Florida (ZSF) through the Miami MetroZoo, we paid 50% to enter the Palm Beach Zoo.

The normal admission prices are $12.95 for adults, and $8.95 for seniors (60+) or children (3-12). It's a bargain for a day of fun.

To learn more about the animals, you can attend any of the long list of daily activities. Just a few of them are the Wings Over Water Show, Jaguar Talk, African Serval Encounter, Black Bear Training, Wild Things Show, Digsite Encounter, Bush Dog Conversation Talk, Snake Encounter, and the American Alligator Encounter.

One of the best way to see the animals at their most active is to visit during feeding time. The staff at the Palm Beach Zoo have a schedule for feedings the Flamingos, the Aldabra Tortoises, the Pelicans, the Primates, the Broad-Snouted Caiman, the Black Howler Monkeys, the Pantanals, the Capybaras, and the Siamang apes. There are also a few feed dispensing machines located throughout the park for feeding the waterfowl and turtles.

Green Iguana Head
One of my favorite parts about visiting the Palm Beach Zoo is encountering the multitude of large Green Iguanas that wander freely around the park. They can be seen resting on tree branches, climbing through bushes, scurrying up bamboo trees and sunning themselves on the fence posts. They are very tame so it's easy to get close and snap some great pictures.
