Lion Habitat at The MGM Grand Hotel & Casino
This is a wonderful spot at the MGM Grand to spend an hour or two gazing at the lions and cubs in their multi-level, state-of-the-art showcase and natural habitat. These pampered cats are housed off-site and rotated every few hours, so you get to see a variety of the 30 or so MGM lions. There's also a gift shop, with lots of fun toys, stuffed animals and clothing. A portion of the proceeds goes to organizations dedicated to the preservation of lions.
My sister and I always stay at the MGM, the lion exhibit is great, we usually go and watch them play everyday that we are there. The MGM is a great place to stay, they treat you like your the only one there. Last year we went and saw David Copperfield, after the show we rode upstairs on the elevator with him, he is a true gentalman
My daughter and I went to the MGM at a time
when there were baby lions to hold. We got up early and waited a short time to hold a
lion and have our picture taken with him.
It was very exciting as well as interesting.
Who would think you could actually hold and
cuddle a lion?
Ok, so it's free, so the value is easy to understand. But the Lion Habitat is a don't miss exhibit since the handlers are usually in the exhibit with the lions engaging them in play. They switch the lions out several times a day, and some of them are very playful. They seem to love rawhide chews and large balls to bat around. It's easy to get to from the south door off Tropicana. There are many places to view the lions, so just be patient if there are alot of people. It's great for the kids to see, too!
They have diffrent cats throught out the day. plus the tigers/loin keepers were in with the cats. When I was there they had the cubs in the habitat and the keepers were play ball with the cubs. very open area so you can see the cats. plus it FREE to watch
Admission is free. Great for kids. They have a walkway through the middle of the enclosure so you can get up close. Easy to find. You can spend as much time there as you want. Sometimes a little crowded usually not for long. I have gone a few times and was never disappointed.
Seeing the lion's at MGM was something that I wasn't sure I'd like. I don't like the idea of animals being displayed in that way. But it's all done so well and the lions are only there once every few months (they rotate the different lions they have) and they appear happy enough.
I guess if a lion wasn't happy the guys in the display centre with them would know about it!
Odd place to put it though, in the middle of the casino but it works!
After walking what seemed like 700 miles across the MGM to look at lions, I was INCREDIBLY disappointed to find that the exhibit was down for maintenance the one day we were there. I guess it wouldn't be bad for a free exhibit but maybe there should be some lions in the lion habitat next time.
I've been and stayed in MGM in a year 2002 and in the year of 2004 and it really amazed me so much. "Lion Habitat" in MGM is one of the part of MGM that I really always want to just hang-out and watch the "Lion". Just can't explain but it really amazed me and I love the lions.
