Lions and tigers and bears? Oh my!

Well, sort of.

When you’re in Las Vegas, there are plenty of fun and furry friends to meet on and off the Strip.

The top draw could be Angel – the infant lion cub who is being raised by Keith Evans and his team after she was abandoned by her mother. The wildlife park is also home to other animals such as dozens of lions, ostriches and a rescued giraffe named Oz who just celebrated a first birthday. The ranch offers opportunities to feed the creatures or even work as a trainer for a day. Open 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday-Monday. Admission is $20.

These pet pals take center stage and perform some fun feats that would give Cirque-du-Soleil a run for its money. Trainer and ringmaster Gregory Popovich rescued his performers from shelters. Shows at 4 p.m. Tuesdays-Saturdays. General admission is $34.99.
