Panther Ridge Conservation Center

There are ocelots, clouded leopards, and cheetahs -- some of the most rare species of exotic cats that you usually can't even see at a zoo. The enclosures have fans (lol fans for the cats, that's awesome). Visiting Panther Ridge was quite the learning experience; I'd never seen an ocelot, jaguar, or a cheetah before. Not your ordinary encounter, since we were only a few feet away from the cats.
