Hi From Myrtle Beach! The mild temperatures that we enjoyed earlier this month have risen to triple digits. I was in Garden City earlier this week and was amazed at the crowds. It's awesome that we live in a place where there is so much to do. Of course, there is the ocean, but there are so many other things besides going to the beach.
Many don't know that there is a 50-acre animal attraction just minutes from Myrtle Beach. T.I.G.E.R.S. Preserve hosts tigers, wolves, leopards, chimpanzees, orangutans, and other endangered species and even a liger (a cross between a lion and a tiger, and it weighs over 900 lbs!).
T.I.G.E.R.S. was founded by Dr. Bhagavan Antle. He is one of the World’s foremost trainers of big cats and other exotic animals. Some of these animals are the rare and on the list of endangered species; Golden Tabby Tigers, Siberian & Bengal, Tigers, Panthers, Leopards, Royal White Tigers, Lions and Jaguars. There is even one of the most unusual animals in the world, the Liger. This Gentle Giant is over 11 foot tall and 900 lbs. and is a cross between a male lion and female tiger. The famous Rafiki Baboons there Co-Starred in Ace Ventura with Jim Carrey and in Mr. Magoo with Leslie Nelson as well as Jungle Book. Bubbles the elephant starred in Dr. Dolittle and Ace Ventura when Nature Calls.
Guests at the T..I.G.E.R.S. Preserve enjoy wondrous experiences which live on for a lifetime in the hundreds of individual and group high end professional photographs and video we take of them on this once in a lifetime journey. They leave the tour with images that only a few privileged photographers and explorers on safari have captured after years of travel; a tiger or cheetah running at full speed or swimming across a clear pool, the great apes sliding through the canopy or a large tusked elephant just a breath away. You can tell from their pictures and the letters they send us how it has changed them. This experience happens every day.
So if you live here or you're just visiting, go see the amazing animal exhibit located in Myrtle Beach. T.I.G.E.R.S. Preservation Station is a wildlife exhibit and living tiger museum with all proceeds benefiting the rarest tiger in the world, the Golden Tabby tiger. It is located near Myrtle Beach.
