On what might have been the hottest day of my life we stopped by to see how the sea animals were enjoying the warmth of the sun at The Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat in the Mirage Hotel. Turns out the dolphins liked it very much and showed off quite a bit for us!

I loved how close you could get to the animals. You could almost reach out and touch them!

We sat for over a half hour {in the shade sipping some ice cold drinks} and watched the dolphins play!

The Toddler squealed with delight  when the dolphins swam over and showed her their beach balls! They were bouncing them back and forth and then they would throw them into the air.

The big cats were not as animated but still provided tons of entertainment! It was really interesting to be able to be so close to these huge animals!

This guy looks like he is sleeping… but every few minutes he would surprise everyone and almost jump up!

The girls favorite part was the underwater viewing area. The dolphins literally swim right up to the window. It was nice and cool in there too… that *might* have helped make this a favorite viewing area too!

I was provided tickets to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own.
