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.
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!
