Although JAX has a very nice zoo, going to Catty Shack Ranch is a much more rewarding experience. You can get close to the animals and benefit from the experience of volunteers who are dedicated to ensuring these wild animals have a home for life. There are beautiful lions, tigers and leopards to see and you can spend as much time as you want with them. The Ranch also offers special events like a Roar and Snore -- which enables you to view night feedings, participate in a BBQ, sleep among the animals and wake up to a nice breakfast. Lots of fun for kids too. Do yourself and the animals a favor and visit!
