I just loved holding the baby tigers .... Was a great experience. I was so happy I had tears. How ever I do wish when having you pictures done it was more private.

I stopped in Myrtle Beach on my way to Florida specifically to do this. Where else can you actually hold baby monkeys and a baby tiger in your arms? It's worth the money. They do this to raise money to save the tigers and other...More

I'm a bit confused about the pricing for the T.I.G.E.R.S. Preservation Station at Barefoot Landing. I'll be visiting alone at the end of March. How much will it cost me to hold the baby animals and to take home a copy of all of my pictures?
