Each time slot is limited to 4-6 people, so you will need to be a paid Fresh Air Family member ($35 per year) to sign up -- don't tarry if you want this once-in-a-lifetime experience! Straight from the Marcan Tiger Preserve in Florida, we now have two cuddly Standard Bengal Tiger cubs to pet and play with! Dr. Marcan loves the way this Zoo socializes our animals so his cubs come to the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo to be hand raised, bottle fed, and socialized. By allowing guests to engage with the cubs we are not only socializing the cubs, but sharing our love for wildlife and educating others about conservation. Pricing is $75 per person and includes the encounter, Zoo admission and taxes. You must wear long pants, close-toed shoes and socks. Animal prints not advised...especially zebra stripes.


Watch as this baby tiger chases the ball -- his paws are so big, the poor baby is clumsy! He will grow into those paws soon!

You can play with Baby Bengal Tigers!

June 18 and August 1

Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo


Play with real baby tigers! Fresh Air Family has reserved slots for two days for our families to have the once in a lifetime opportunity to play with these wild babes. The 6-week to 3-month old baby tigers are sweet and playful. They love to be petted and to chase their soccer ball. Join us for this rare opportunity to interact with one of nature's most majestic creatures.
