Ultra Music Festival is a zoo.
From land sharks to killer whales, pink flamingos to African zebras, UMF 2013 is starting to feel a lot like a World Wildlife Foundation fundraiser, complete with endangered species and cuddly critters.
Attention, ravers: The inflatable chimp won't hurt you! He is your friend. He loves you. He loves everybody.
Check out some of our favorite inflatable props at Ultra 2013.
Orca Whale Like a fish out of water (or in this case a mammal), a killer whale has no business at Ultra. But it's mating season, and these bros are taking full advantage of Shamu's flukes.
Plains Zebra Fact: Zebras are safer at Ultra than they are in Africa. Stop poaching, assholes!
Mustachioed Saguaro Don't let the mustache fool you, cacti can be a real pain in the ass. Especially if you sit on one.
Sanrio Kitten Want to stick out at Ultra? It'll take a lot more than a 12-year-old girl's Hello Kitty birthday balloon. Nice try, homie.
Curious Chimp The thing about chimps, they'll literally rip your face off. (Graphic audio)
Television Has-Been Don't hassle the Hoff, beat freaks.
Rave Raft Gregg Gillis of Girl Talk wants his boat back.
Chicken Dinner This chick's depressed because he knows that once Ultra runs out of turkey legs, he's next. Nom. Nom. Nom.
American Flamingo In other news, flamingos have gone missing from Hialeah Park.
Umbrella Frog If you're going to be the only person at Ultra with an umbrella, it may as well have eyes on it.
