Taking a Bite Out of Earth Day (Las Vegas, NV)

We went to The Secret Garden that was setup by Siegfried and Roy at the Mirage.  We thought it was a little pricey, but how often do we get the chance to see white tigers and white lions?  The day we visited we saw a total of eight large cats and quite a few dolphins getting fed along with a few tricks.
Big mouth and teeth!

What I loved was how close we could get to the tigers and lions if they came to the fence.  Only one came close enough for us to see his pale blue eyes and to take in just how big he was compared to us.  Notice the double fence...keeps paws in and hands out.  Plus, bushes made a two-foot barrier between us and the fence.

Still they are gorgeous creatures and I can see why Siegfried and Roy love them so much.
Big paws! 
And as gorgeous as they are, our thoughts were:  they are not the kind of surprise encounter we would want to meet in the wild.  That's for sure!

Earth Day by Ol' White Tiger
Earth Day?  Yea, I've heard of it.  How do I celebrate?   
Oh, I don't know.  Never thought about it.
Okay, well let me give this some thought....
oh yea, that feels gooood...Uh?  oh yea..Earth Day....I know!
I'll celebrate Earth Day by eating more greens.
Mmmm. Nom. Nom. Nom.
   hmmm, CRUNCH!...

Oh, yuk!  Ptooie!
Yea, a little too earthy tasting..blah
I'll just sit here and soak my tongue for awhile.  

Happy Earth Day!


  1. Ol' White Tiger is a pretty funny guy! I'm glad HE didn't come into my backyard with those cute little kitties!! Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Simply beautiful!! Would so love to pet one of those big cats!

    1. Me too! Maybe a tiger cub. Their thick fur just begs to be petted!..

  3. Aren't his eyes just gorgeous? Very funny captions!

  4. So amazing! They are so beautiful. Love that pic of the eyes. Thanks for sharing. xo

  5. Now I want to get up close and personal with those big cats, of course with the fence between me and them. They are fascinating.

  6. Wow, gorgeous! I definitely wouldn't want to meet one in the wild either, but they are still beautiful to admire from a distance.

  7. Great photos. Looks like you had a good time!

  8. So pretty, but so fierce. Great pictures.

  9. Sandy, what gorgeous photos you have taken of these awesome cats. Pricey or not...definately worth it, wish I could be there to see this in person. Such beauty. Thanks for posting these.


  10. I declined to go because of the price, but am glad you went! Your captures are amazing. And the captions made me giggle. ^.^


Thanks for taking time to leave me a comment. I enjoy hearing from you.
