The MGM Grand hotel has lots to offer but my favourite moment was when we came face to face with the lions in their glassed habitat just off the lobby of the hotel. Several lions of various sizes are brought in to play, sleep and eat in this amazing area, accompanied by two keepers who will throw giant rubber balls for them to chase and roll on. The area is constructed so that you can walk through glass tunnels with the lions resting on top...just reach up and touch them...thru the glass of course! All is tightly controlled and each group of lions are only "on stage" for a couple of hours at a time
