Flora and fauna unique to the Everglades -- the critically endangered Florida Panther

As the farthest north tropical environment in the world, the Florida Everglades is home to scores of interesting plants and animals, many of them found only in the Everglades. Grab your camera and get ready for an unforgettable adventure as you come face-to-face with some of the most interesting sights in North America. What can you expect to see in the Everglades?

Unique Flora of the Everglades

Saw Palmetto is a long living plant endemic to the Everglades. Recognized by its characteristic fan palm and spikey shrubs, this plant creates the backdrop for much of the region, yet only grows to a maximum of seven to ten feet. Palmetto is long living, and some plants may be as old as seven hundred years!

The Everglades is also the place to see over twenty unique species of orchids. Botanists often wade into the depths of the ecosystem just to catch a glimpse of a rare mule ear orchid or ghost orchid – a truly extraordinary sight. Love trees? Hardwood trees often have gnarled and twisted branches that stretch out across the River of Grass. The Southern Live Oak, one of the larger hardwood trees found only in the Everglades supplied the wood for the world’s oldest Naval vessel, “Old Ironsides”.

Exciting Wildlife – In a Natural Habitat

Unique flora isn’t the only camera worthy sight in the “glades – the wildlife is extraordinary. The Snail Kite, a gorgeous bird unique to the region, makes it home in the subtropical climate for one reason – it’s prey lives here. The Snail Kite is often seen swooping in to snatch Applesnails from the water. How about a Florida Panther or Black Bear? Critically endangered species, it’s unlikely either of these two animals will cross your path, but it’s fun to know they may be watching your every move. Alligators on the other hand are always around. So many in fact, you may mistake them for drifting logs. Look carefully, because Everglades alligators are great at blending in with their surroundings – making them extremely proficient at sneaking up on unsuspecting prey.

Unlike at the zoo, all of the wildlife in the Everglades are here by choice, existing in a natural, pristine habitat. Of course, turtles, snakes, tropical fish and scores of brightly colored birds like the Roseate Spoonbill can be found around every corner.
