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, as well as lions, a snow leopard, a panther, and an elephant. Atlantic bottlenose 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. Spa patrons also can sign up for an hour-long yoga class near the dolphin pool.
