About Big Cat Habitat And Gulf Coast Sanctuary, Sarasota
A big cat is not actually a cat but interestingly it is another name for a tiger which is an animal also of the cat family. This place is set up with a purpose of providing care and protection to wild animals to free them from captivation. Among all the animals you see here, the tiger gets a bit of more attention as its number is more on the side of declination. The people here try to give the animals a natural habitat and encourage them for challenging activities to keep them active and to make them a sport for all situations. All the efforts of the people and the facilities given to the animals have made it a sanctuary as well.
The many species of animals include tigers, ligers, leopards, bears, primates, birds and many more domestic varieties as well. The special part about this zoo and sanctuary is that it is partly maintained with the help of public that can be any form such as financially, sponsors or in a materialistic way.

Big Cat Habitat And Gulf Coast Sanctuary, Sarasota Reviews - Write a Review
The place is full of beautiful animals, and they have spent quite a bit of money on making their habitat beautiful and comfortable. However, that has left the customer experience a little on the "meh" side. If you are a local, it's a good place to bring kids (they have petting goats), but you can go through it and complete it within 1 hour. During the summer months is difficult to stay long because not all areas are shared, and they are usually opened during the highest sunlight hours (noon to 4). They have free tickets for children under 3 (and veterans I think).
We really enjoyed seeing all the wildlife. I cannot help feeling a little sorry for the animals such as tigers and bears locked up like that. However they seem to be taking great care of them. They were rescued and many cannot be released back into the wild. We had a great time.
Had a really great time here - came by myself just for a wander around on a whim as I saw the sign while driving past one day. Really loved the ability to feed some of the animals as you walk past and just how close you can actually get to them. We don’t have any places like this in the UK bar hufe chain zoo’s. I would highly suggest that if you’re in the area that you give this a look - was good value for money and wasn’t too busy when I visited.
Big Cat Habitat is a magical place. The love and care these beautiful creatures receive is abundantly evident. The animals exhibit no signs of stress and seem to be as curious about us as we are of them. Really cool place.
My three year old granddaughter and I have a membership. It has been well worth it! We always enjoy our visits to the Big Cat Habitat. The animals are beautiful and the park is always clean.
