Miami's 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.

Sure, they're inflatable. But try explaining that to someone rolling face. After all, it was in downtown Miami where a young woman dry-humped a tree before ultimately slapping it for reasons unknown last year during Ultra.

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.
