Vegas Has Lions, And Tigers, Oh My!
When you planned your trip to Las Vegas, bet you did not think about looking for animals. However, there are several venues in the area where you can see lions, giraffes, sharks, birds, dolphins, and more.
Let us recommend a few. If you have children with you these may be some great family friendly places to visit.
One place to consider is the Lion Habitat Ranch located in Henderson. Here, you can get face to face with lions and if you willing to shell out some serious dough, you can take a behind-the-scenes tour and see all the inner workings of the ranch. You can hand feed a lion and the kids can hand feed Ozzie the young giraffe. Get more information and prices here.
At the Mirage you can visit Siegfried & Roy’s Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat. It’s a beautiful place and who doesn’t love dolphins. That’s not all either. There are white tigers here in a green jungle like environment. Check it out here.
Finally, we recommend Shark Reef at Mandalay Bay. The main attraction-lots of sharks. In addition, you will see exotic and rare fish and reptiles. The aquarium is awesome as are its inhabitants. You can get the full story here.
Oh, if you want to see some wild animals in their natural habitat, you can drive through Red Rock Canyon. Here you may see mules, coyotes, bobcats, sheep, foxes and rabbits. There is a scenic 13 mile drive through the Red Rock National Conservation Area. Just the scenery is worth the time. Read more about the wildlife here.
