Discounts are available for children, and active military members are admitted for free.

Big Cat Habitat and Gulf Coast Sanctuary, a nonprofit haven for exotic animals in need, gives humans the opportunity to interact with lions, tigers, bears, and other wild critters in safe, humane surroundings. Guests will see siberian and royal bengal tigers, african lions, and rare white tigers as the animals roam through spacious indoor and outdoor habitat complexes, splash through swimming pools, and compete for territory in ongoing games of animal Monopoly.

Count the stripes on tiger siblings Tigger, Nelson, and Baby as they paw at toys such as boomer balls and Connect Four, or puzzle over the existence of Mia, the sanctuary’s liger, who was born from a star-crossed match between a lion and a bengal tiger. The sanctuary also houses bears, primates, and tortoises.

Big Cat Habitat and Gulf Coast Sanctuary

The Rosaires preside over a household of more than a 100 animals, including tigers, lions, ligers, lemurs, tortoises, camels, llamas, and zebras. A petting zoo is available for children. With their nonprofit wildlife sanctuary, the Rosaires hope to educate the public about the importance of habitat preservation and to help foster an appreciation for these animals.

They do this with guided tours and training sessions, which allow visitors to watch the big cats respond to verbal commands from the trainers and receive a tasty treat in return. Training takes place in the cooler months, which ensures the animals don’t overheat and the snow cone treats they are rewarded with stay frozen. Guided tours of the facility are scheduled year-round.
