This sounds more like an advertisement for Monkey Jungle than a legitimate review. This would violate Trip Advisor rules. What if you want to come here, and don't want to go to Monkey Jungle? This review makes it sound like you should always go there...More

They might allow service animals. But I dont know if they will allow your everyday run of the mill pet. But you may want to call them ahead of your visit to be sure. 305-238-9453
