The palm-shaded sanctuary has a collection of the planet's rarest and most exotic creatures. Animals are rotated regularly, but at any time you're likely to see white tigers (several new cubs arrived in summer 2008), as well as lions, a snow leopard, a panther, and an elephant. (The tiger that mauled Roy in 2003 is not on view.) Atlantic bottle-nosed dolphins swim around in a 2.5-million-gallon saltwater tank at the Dolphin Habitat. Pass through the underwater observation station to the video room, where you can watch tapes of two dolphin births at the habitat. In addition to the regular admission, there are VIP edu-tours as well as a paint-with-the-dolphins experience for $199, and a deluxe trainer-for-a-day program for $500 or so.
