Welcome to the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo, Home of Animal Planet's The Little Zoo That Could

Kato & Calypso

Straight from the Marcan Tiger Preserve, our two Standard Bengal Tiger cubs grew very quickly and thrived into wonderful little tigers. Brother and sister: Kato and Calypso are now doing wonderfully at the Preserve.

Thanks to all who came to make some memories here with them. We just never know when new cubs will arrive so stay tuned and any announcements will be made right here.

Encounters are available for adults and children ages 4 and up. Children must be accompanied by a paying adult. Pricing and schedules will be made available later this year if and when new cubs arrive.


To ensure a safe and fun encounter socks, closed toe shoes, and long pants are required. (It can get HOT here so you may want to bring these with you to change into just before your encounter!)


encountersPLEASE NOTE:

*As young cubs grow, their size and activity level are considered to ensure every encounter is a safe one for both you and the tigers. So, we reserve the right to make any changes to the schedule that we see fit.

We reserve ther right to make last minute decisions regarding group size and location in order to make the encounters fun, safe, and enjoyable for our guests, our handlers, and our cubs.
