Catty Shack Ranch

The Catty Shack Ranch Wildlife Sanctuary gives a forever home to endangered big cats. The beautiful and exotic animals that call this place home include lions, tigers, leopards, cougars, bobcats, and arctic foxes. Though breathtaking at any hour, perhaps the most awe-inspiring experience occurs at feeding time, when the creatures' natural animal instincts are on display.  

Jacksonville Zoo & Gardens

One of the best zoos in the eastern part of the country, the Jacksonville Zoo houses an incredible diversity of animals. Check out the great apes as they roam through a re-creation of the African rainforest, or see the local Florida wildlife in a safe environment where you can witness stealthy alligators, browsing black bears, and a variety of marine and terrestrial wildlife.
