What You'll Get
Without their stripes, tigers would lose the ability to camouflage themselves while hunting but would gain the ability to wear polka-dotted neckties without clashing. Marvel at big cats' fashion-forward fur with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get four tickets to Big Cat Habitat and Gulf Coast Sanctuary in Sarasota (a $60 value). The sanctuary’s visiting hours are from 12:30 p.m. until 4 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday. Discounted $7 tickets are regularly available for children.
The nonprofit Big Cat Habitat and Gulf Coast Sanctuary shepherds visitors as close as four feet from the lustrous fur, noble frames, and graceful gaits of big cats such as royal bengal tigers and African lions, as well as a menagerie of bears, primates, birds, and tortoises. At the wildlife safe haven, domestic safari-goers weave through three large indoor and outdoor housing complexes in hopes of spying Pharaoh, a male African lion, as he dips into the pool for a swim, or ogle Conan, the park's largest tiger, as he mounts a boulder to perform a Bollywood dance sequence. At 1:30 p.m. on Saturdays, trainer Kay Rosaire and her son Clayton lead animals in an exciting and educational demonstration. To display the creatures' athletic prowess and to stress the importance of habitat preservation, Kay and Clayton may prompt one of their three baby tigers to pitch a no-hitter against the Florida Marlins.
