Big Cat Habitat and Gulf Coast Sanctuary

Today my grandmother, aunt, mom, and I took Raul to the Big Cat Habitat and Gulf Coast Sanctuary in Sarasota. It was much hotter than we thought it was supposed to be, so Raul was a bit uncomfortable, but liked seeing the animals. This place rescues animals from  zoos, private owners, and others who can no longer care for their exotic animals. The family has been doing this work for ten generations now, and even the young children are involved. Some of their animals have even been in movies and commercials! We saw a training demonstration with a dog, a chimp, and a lion/2 white tigers/a liger (half lion half tiger). Raul fell asleep during the show because he was tired and hot, but all us adults really enjoyed it! He is a funny boy, we took him to an exotic animal sanctuary and his favorite animals were the goats! One lady let him feed the goats popcorn out of his hand, which gave him a huge smile!
