I hope you enjoyed the post I made last, "Take a Walk on the Wild Side in Myrtle Beach". I included some reviews by some folks who had visited recently and the their comments were amazing.
A lot of people don't know there is an interactive animal preserve and tour in Myrtle Beach. T.I.G.E.R.S., or Carolina Safari was created as a wildlife education organization, dedicated to promoting global conservation with informative, educational, and entertaining interactive programs. Dr. Bhagavan Antle works closely with international wildlife conservation projects in South America, Africa and Thailand. In addition to providing much needed funds for these programs, our personnel have been involved in field research as well.

What animals will you meet at T.I.G.E.R.S? You will meet this large cat called a liger. A liger is a cross between a lion and a tiger and are extremely social animals. They are happy and content living with both lions and tigers. They also display genuine affection for their human handler's and trainers.
Ligers are giants because of "hybrid vigor", in which they gain the strengths and attributes of both parents. Ligers are bigger than both their parents combined. Ligers live long, healthy lives. They are very smart and show great resistance to illness and disease.
Contrary to popular belief, ligers are not a "man-made" creation. They are the result of a male lion and a female tiger that have been raised together and decide they like each other enough to breed.
You will also meet Bubbles the elephant who became a member of the family in 1984. The "little girl" is now 27 years old and over 9 feet tall, weighing almost 4 tons. She loves to go for rides through the countryside, while browsing on greenery, and swimming in the inter coastal waterway which is next to her home. Bubbles has a very affectionate relationship with everyone since she works very little, unlike a circus elephant. Bubbles has had her moments of fame though. She has starred in Ace Ventura II, Malaika – HBO Special Movie, a Janet Jackson video and even some magazine photo shoots and ads. They would never trade these last 20 happy years; the moments and memories will last a lifetime.
