Take a Carolina Safari and meet the Animals at T.I.G.E.R.S.
T.I.G.E.R.S. was founded by Dr. Bhagavan Antle. He is one of the World’s foremost trainers of big cats and other exotic animals. Doc Antle’s animal actors have appeared in over 500 films, television shows, commercials and advertisements worldwide.You have seen some of these animals in great films such as Ace Ventura, Forrest Gump, Dr. Dolittle, Mighty Joe Young and many others.
Check out the Birds of Prey at Antle’s Wildlife Preserve near Myrtle Beach. They are typically represented by Eagles, Hawks, Falcons and Kites. Here at T.I.G.E.R.S. we have our own special Birds of Prey. They are Mara Hootie (Barbary Falcon subspecies of Peregrine Falcon), Alair (Red Backed Hawk from South America), Jaired (Black Backed African Kite), Crowboy (black crow) and Africa (Tawny Eagle from Africa). Birds of Prey are used traditionally in falconry. Our birds do enjoy flying and Alair won an Emmy for her flight work in the television movie "Never Say Goodbye".
This is a very special kind of Wildlife presentation with the world’s rarest big cats. With T.I.G.E.R.S you will observe and learn about many rare and unique animals, in a new and completely different way. You will not see our animals sleeping or pacing in cages, as you may find in "traditional" zoos. Instead you will have a look at some of the most magnificent creatures on Earth up close and uncaged you can see and photograph the animals climbing and jumping and doing all the natural activities they would normally do in the wild.Why go to such great lengths? Because at T.I.G.E.R.S. we feel that if people can get an up-close and educational view of these glorious beasts, they will be eager to learn of the plight of endangered species.
The money from the Wildlife tour goes directly to help save the Endangered Wildlife Species and preserve their natural habitats. For information about T.I.G.E.R.S. visit, www.tigerfriends.com/home.html
