The Everglades is the habitat of the endangered Florida Panther, the American Crocodile, and the West Indian manatee, and has numerous birds that occupy the wide expanse of prairies, mangrove forests, and fresh and saltwater marshes, rivers, and lakes.

Other Interesting Facts

The Everglades consists very wide, slow-moving layers of water flowing southwest over shallow areas from Lake Okeechobee to the Gulf of Mexico. As water flows, the abundant blades of the saw grass ripple like green waves and hence, the nickname "River of Grass" has come into being.

This is the only place in the world where alligators and crocodiles co-exist.

The Everglades has known to have over thousands of alligators, however. they continue to be protected because of their similarity to the endangered American crocodile.
