April 1st Black Bear update The black bears have finally woken up from their long winter's nap. Each day they show a bit more interest in doing the "Black Bear Adventures". We will let you know how they are behaving when you visit as it changes day to day this time of year. Thank you for your understanding. Animals will be animals after all.
Feeling adventurous and brave?
Cat Tales offers the chance to feed one of our tigers or lions a special treat for only $10.00 per person. Siberian tiger siblings Tuga and Koshka and lioness Nala take turns being the choice big cat for this special adventure.
But wait - are bears are more your style? If so, our bear adventure will allow you to feed one of our black bears - Oscar or Oso - for just $10.00 per person.
Our big cats are fed meat and our bears are fed fresh fruit while on these adventures. A keeper will be with you at all times to insure your safety as well as to answer any of your questions. Please note that the minimum age for our big cat adventure is eight years old, and the minimum age for our bear adventure is six years old.
Adventures can be purchased in our Gift Shop during your visit. ** **(The animals get fed their dinners at ~3:00 and so we stop the Big Cat and Black Bear Adventures at about 2:30)
Depending on how busy we are, you should expect a short wait after purchase. We want to be able to spend time with you and others. Also the Big Cats are still "cats" and they often times have their own "schedule".
Please note - At this time Big Cat and Black Bear Adventures can be done when staff are available during the day. We apologize ahead of time if Adventures are not available during your visit.
Big Cat and Black Bear Adventures can now be purchased online
