Default Wakodahatchee Wetlands Wildlife Pictures - Delray Beach, FL

I've got some more wildlife pictures for all of you. This time they are from the Wakodahatchee Wetlands located in west Delray Beach Florida.

In this 50 acre man made ecosystem there are over 140+ bird species, alligators, raccoons, marsh rabbits, and iguanas.

The 3/4 mile boardwalk is open to the public for free from sunrise to sunset. I highly recommend a visit if you're going to be in the area.

Here's a few of my favorite shots -







The last picture is of three of the four young raccoons we spotted out digging for food with their mother. Later in the visit there was a tense few moments when the whole family got very close to an alligator quietly waiting in a canal. But don't worry, they all got by safely.

Great pics thanks! Saturday we leave for Ocala Florida, I bet that's too far? Do you have a map of this place?

Found it, it seems a bit too far for us. Also there is a HUGE wildlife preserve there too.

It wouldn't be worth that far of a drive. Especially with the price of gas being so high.

Ocala does have a lot of great natural attractions. Be sure to visit Silver Springs. I love that place.

Yeah we've been to Silver Springs, what a cool place.

I understand that they are trying to figure out what to do about the monkeys, as they are breeding too much.
