They are transported back and forth daily in a specially designed vehicle. Overall, there are 20 females and 11 males who are on display only a few at a time. Many movie-goers will remember the Lion Leo who welcomes spectators at every MGM movie with a loud roar.

Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat
This was created by Siegfried and Roy to offer a nurturing environment to Atlantic bottlenose Dolphins. Recently, in 2007, a baby dolphin was born in this habitat that holds 2.5 million gallons of water. Visitors are able to see the enchanting animals, among the smartest in the world, relaxing in their safe environment. Four pools and an artificial coral structure are included in this habitat.

This setup was mainly for educating the public about the dangers to our environment and ecosystem as well as researching on natural behaviours of the bottlenose dolphins. Anyone can be the trainer for a day or get a special tour for a fee. Also, children can hold birthday party and have their pictures taken with a dolphin.

The Secret Garden is full of rare and beautiful creatures roaming around. You can catch a rare glimpse of a white tiger, a snow leopard, lions and panthers, and wait for it, even an elephant. This is the famous Siegfried’s and Roys magical place, and home to Roys very public mauling in 2003.

Southern Nevada Zoological Botanical Park
This Zoo is a must for children and families. The three acre shady park which also houses the Botanical Garden is about 15 minutes from the “Strip”. Over 150 species of plants and animals are on display and these exhibits are open year round.

This Zoo boasts the last family of Barbary Apes to be found in America, along with many, many more fascinating creatures. What would a zoo in Nevada be if it didn’t have hundreds of snakes, and this one doesn’t disappoint, with most of them being venomous. Before you leave make sure you say howdy to the local Elvis, the 7 foot long Croc. 1775 N. Rancho Drive , Rancho Strip
