Hello Hopeful4aVacation, Small and intimate -- we are all about our guests experiencing the animals up close and personal. You were likely at the tiger habitat right before dinner time - just like us - they know when it's time to eat! ;)

Anything outdoors is hot in south Florida this time of year. Early mornings and dusk best hours to venture out. Sometimes there are evening events. I would look on their website.
