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.
Unnatural environment. The Vegas strip is no place for such animals. Even when out of this tiny "habitat" (read: glass cage) they are only give a small number of acres to wander. These poor animals do not deserve such a limited existence.
There was a large crowd of rude people flashing cameras into the eyes of a lioness. The enclosure was far too small and I left feeling that I wanted to cry. Please boycott MGM until they release these cats to a proper sanctuary.
I was horrified to walk in and see these sad and bored looking animals behind the glass as a million moronic tourists flashed away with cameras trying to snap photos, even banging on the glass to try to get their attention.
The lions looked very sad, one made eye contact with me for quite some time, as a cat lover my eyes were welling up with tears watching their sadness as they were locked in this glass enclosure and he let me know he was not happy about it, the poor thing get rotated but wherre do they do? and often are they transported back n forth? and for what? its a casino in vegas ffs, not a place for animals. a place for money and greed. next time i go to vegas i will not be going there, i8t made me too sad for the whole day and kinda ruined my trip.
One of my “bucket list” check offs is to cuddle a lion, tiger or other large cat cub and have my picture taken with him/her. I had been checking the MGM site for months prior to our trip to Vegas in early May. When we arrived at MGM's Lion Habitat, I was horrified to see a sign stating that the cub photos had been stopped per management. Upon investigation I learned that the gentleman who owns them (and takes the pictures) had an accident and suspended the photos for a week or so. Although I am grateful cub owner is okay, I was SO disappointed to not have my dream fulfilled.
Disapointed in Maryland
I was surprised how clear the lion habitat was. I did have a little trouble seeing some of the Lions that were farther away because I didnt have my glasses so I recommend for those who need help seeing take glasses or contacts other then that it was fantastic and the Lions are really the big creatures of the kingdom and they let you know it.We went around the early evening and they were active then so thats my suggestion of when to see them. Great area for them to be shown.
Well I wont complain too much cos this attraction is free, but hey, so are the Bellagio Fountains.
The lions are ok, I've seen bigger ones in India. Dont they feed these cats? Why're they so sad and downtrodden?
Go only if you have time. Dont schedule it exclusivelu.
I think this attraction is inhumane and horrible. These poor lions are stuck in that cage that can hardly be deemed as a "habitat". They were tired and sickly looking and had absolutely no room to run! Visit this so called habitat if you want to see these animals suffering. I could hardly stand to look at them... they seemed so sad and distressed... it broke my heart
So, if you own a cat you know they spend a great deal of time sleeping. Big cats tend to sleep more than domestic kitties, so the MGM Lion Habitat is basically a huge playground for lions to sleep in, and believe me that�s all they do. I�ve stayed at the MGM a couple of times now and tend to go there most times I�m in Vegas and of the 10+ times I�ve been past the habitat, they have been asleep. Usually, in a corner away from the moronic kids that smack their hands against the glass or shout to get their attention. Ultimately this is a non-eventful trip into a shop.
It feels so different when you can see lions through 1" glasses. Their paws look so big, and their roars sound so clear. From my point of view, it's more attractive than the secret garden, and best of all, it's free.
