We took my middle son to go see the small and large cats. They had mountain loins, Bobcats, cougars and more. Hope they expand soon. Better than I expected.

I've went here when I was a kid, my kids with their scout groups and they enjoy it every time especially when there are kittens there.

Like cats and peacocks? Stop here for a pleasant visit in this small facility. Some cats are friendly, most lounge on shelves or hide inside their logs. (Typically the smaller cats won't be seen at all.) Peacocks provide lots of fun photo ops, but the...More

This is grate if your local but probably not worth the drive from LA. They have lots of big cats to see. It is better if you don't come when it's really hot. If you can get there right when they open that's probably the...More
