Las Vegas: Dolphins and Lions and Tigers, Oh My!

We recently visited the Siegfried & Roy's Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat in Las Vegas.The zoolike sanctuary at the Mirage has lions, leopards, a variety of tigers including baby tigers, and quite a number of bottlenose dolphins.

We saw a trainer play with two baby tigers which was delightful to watch. The tigers were playful and adorable like kittens, or my cats, except the tigers are much, much bigger. I hope they don't scratch or bite as my cats sometimes do.

Trainers also worked with the dolphins and that was also fun to see.  The dolphin's pool allowed underwater viewing. 

The bottom pictures show a white tiger playing with a giant ball in the pool. He tried pulling out the ball from the pool, and failing to do that, proceeded to rest his head on the bobbing ball and close his eyes for a nap.

Happy New Year! I hope 2016 brings you and your families peace and joy.
