I went to the Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat at the Mirage today. It's $15 and there's no local discount (boo!) but there are dolphins and lions and tigers and whatnot. It's really pretty, too. Lots of greenery and jungle sounds playing and places to sit and just watch the cats act crazy or sleep. Mostly sleep. There aren't any dolphin "shows" but there are trainers and they show the dolphin "behaviors" like jumping and waving their tales and generally being cute and stuff. I watched a bunch of people who apparently paid $500 a piece to be dolphin trainers for the day. That looked like fun. I'm not sure if it was $500 worth of fun but if you were spending a vacation day in Las Vegas you'd probably drop $500 on shopping and eating and gambling anyway.
I took pictures, of course.
The cats were pretty lazy.
The dolphins were really playful, though.
