This is a very interesting facility to visit. It is also called the Exotic Feline Breeding Center.
They are doing great work by breeding the almost extinct animals. The problem is once you walk around there is not much else to do. There is not much in Rosamond. The site with a tour guide, who was excellent, only took about 45 minutes.
The other problem is that it really is not child friendly. They are trying to regrow the grass in between the walking areas. So they spend too much time telling everyone to get off the grass. My feeling was: if it is that important, put up a fence around those areas.
The other problem is they do not want children to walk around unsupervised. I understand why, but the woman in the gift shop came out and shouted at one of my children, 13 yrs old, to not walk around by herself.
It is not that big of an area. You can stand in one spot and almost see the entire "zoo." I agree that often the public is rowdy and especially unsupervised children. There are some very large cats and at times they retaliate by urinating on someone outside the cage. But again, either make it known that the facility really isn't for children under 12 yrs old or put up some glass. Most of us are use to a zoo where you can roam.
Overall I found the information very educational but I wouldn't recommend it for children, only teens. They spend too much time on what the public can't do.
