We are proud to be the only facility in the state, including government funded zoological parks, to qualify for and be granted, a State of Colorado Zoological License.It is with joy that we provide care and love to the exotic cats in our care. See all of the opportunities you have to spend time with these majestic animals.

We went for the tiger cub encounter and it was an experience of a lifetime! We had three adorable white Bengal tiger cubs roaming around, playing, and climbing on us. We will go back one Saturday or Sunday for a full tour.
