We had a blast just across the street from Tiger Stadium visiting Mike the Tiger. You get up front and personal with him and get a better sense of the enormous size of this magnificent creature.

Very nice to see Mike The Tiger. He was actually out and near the gate. I like the background that they had about the tiger and previous tigers.

You can visit Mike's habitat at anytime day or night. The best time to see him active is during the cooler part of the day. Hope you enjoy your visit. You will really be impressed with his large habitat.

If school isn't in session there are lots near the stadium large enough for an RV.

Mornings are best. Mike is also out on sunny afternoons but usually sleeping. On really hot days he loves to swim in the pool at his home...such a fun time.
