T.I.G.E.R.S. in Myrtle Beach – It’s nice to have an ape in your corner

Good Friday afternoon from T.I.G.E.R.S. in Myrtle Beach!  Did you know there are two attractions here where you can get up close with wild animals?   T.I.G.E.R.S Preserve and Preservation Station are wildlife exhibits and living tiger habitats. At both, you will find the chance to meet some of the world’s most amazing animals up-close and in-person while they play and relax in an outdoor environment. You will see 60 big cats, apes, tigers, grey wolves, a liger and Bubbles the Elephant.

I was talking today with someone who took the tour last summer and she told me her favorite part of the tour was the orangutans.  I had to agree since I was there as well.  It was so much fun to watch them  playing and laughing while we enjoyed a mid-afternoon tea party.

Make it a point to visit T.I.G.E.R.S., their season begins next month!

Did you hear this?

The Baltimore Ravens have an ape in their corner for Super Bowl XLVII, which is nice.

An orangutan at a Utah zoo has predicted the winning Super Bowl team each of the past five years. The ape, named Eli, is picking the Baltimore Ravens this time around.

Eli made his pick by knocking down a papier mache goal post decorated with the Ravens logo. He ignored the 49ers post.

Eli's pick of the Ravens is consistent with the prognostication of Princess the camel. But Boone the black rhino, named after 49ers offensive lineman Alex Boone, is going with San Francisco.

Hogle Zoo spokeswoman Erica Hansen said Eli has hesitated in years past, but charged toward the Ravens side this year. He then joined his mate and daughter in chowing down on the edible posts.

At least he's confident.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Want to meet the apes and Bubbles the elephant for yourself?  You can at T.I.G.E.R.S. (The Institute of Greatly Endangered and Rare Species); this is a one of kind Myrtle Beach Attraction.  On this tour, you will also see amazing animals at one of the most exciting animal adventures ever.  All proceeds from the tour go to The Rare Species Fund and The Institute of Greatly Endangered and Rare Species.  For reservations, go to www.myrtlebeachsafari.com.
