Cats, Cats, & Dolphins...Oh My

Apparently the Secret Garden at the Mirage in Las Vegas is not really a Secret. After all, people were there. But it is in a garden setting.

This garden just happens to have several dolphin pools. Swimming close to mom this baby dolphin was only 13 days old. Maybe that's what makes it a Secret. He doesn't have a name yet.

The garden also has cats...lots of cats. Of course, they happen to be lions, tigers, leopards, and panthers. Five baby tigers, 5 months old, hid and played much like tame kittens. See how they disappeared in the grass. Also, see the fences separating you and them. Apparently nap time called to the white lions. Nothing was going to budge them. Maybe it's called a Secret Garden because they all look so peaceful.

Definitely worth a side trip to the Secret Garden, bright lights disappear and casino noises fade while you're there. That's the can have a retreat in the middle of Vegas.
