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.
I would like to start a protest to all casinos that are in the Vegas area for having caged animals. I feel the horror these animals, the king of beasts, must feel being in prison with no future in their life. Much like the gamblers that play in the casinos!!
These animals need to be returned to the game preserve not a casino in a low life town!! Shame on us humans for allowing this to happen to those animals. I urge a group of people to protest to the businesses and casinos to stop this practice and free these animals but to a nature preserve where they wil grow happy and be safe...
I live in Las Vegas, my daughter came over for a visit, and as a regular on our "To Do" list, we visited the cats at the MGM. I am just in awe of big cats. We walked thru and watched the adult lions then, had our picture take with one of the cubs. He was so soft and beautiful, it is an experience I will remember the rest of my life, thanks to my daughter for taking me. Thank you Dawn.
Lions doing what they do...lying around, sleeping, and looking magnificent. Even better if you catch a feeding. Habitat is clean and lions look healthy and well cared for...if not a little bored. Amazing contrast with the casino background. Worth a look if you are near the MGM.
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.
I have been to Las Vega many times over the years ,however having educated myself about the way we humans treat other sentient beings, I began to see how animals are treated in the state of Navada.
I also realise how shallow some people's thinking really is.....eg;
Went to a hotel to find an elephant in a small area. There were people, pocker machines, lights and noise. This was no place for an elephant so I complained. I also saw tigers in a comtained area. They were pacing with frustration.
No wonder the tigers turned on those rediculous two men who thought they were so well loved by the animals they kept in prison. For that is what it was, a prison.
I will never return to Vegas
There's nothing special with the Lion Habitat. There're several lions in the cages. The habitat is inside the casino, so it's too crowded. If you don't stay at MGM, it's not worth the time to go the MGM to see the lions unless you have small childrens.
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.
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 loved the MGM Grand Lion Habitat!!! I went 4/24/10 and there was a male and female lion visible to see on the outside, and four 8 week old lion cubs on the inside! The lion's habitat it big and open and beautiful, and there a glass tunnel for you to go through where the lions can walk above you. I thought it was amazing! Then when I saw the lion cubs I almost died! I was also able to pet a lion cub and take a picture with it!!! It was the highlight of my trip!! The Lion Habitat is a must see if you love animals!!
