Must see

Great spot located on the north side of the Tiger Stadium. Nice enclosure with water features and foliage. Mike was not there the first time we went but we hope to see him next time around!

One of the must see when visiting LSU
Aug 2021
LSU has done a very good job with "Mike"'s habitat. This beautiful tiger is comfortably roaming in side the glasses windows.

A must see when visiting LSU!

Every visit we stop to see Mike, and he never disappoints. Some days we stop to grab dinner and just sit on the benches and watch Mike do his thing.

I think that LSU does and excellent job with the habitat they provide for Mike. The LSU VET SCHOOL is excellent and treated my animal well, so I'm sure Mike gets excellent care.

This is definitely worth a visit. Mike was napping when we first arrived but long after he woke up and started looking around. The enclosure is beautiful and it’s nice to see how much they care for him. We loved reading and learning about all of the different Mikes they have had.

I thought it was worth the visit. The habitat is well kept and you can appreciate such a beautiful animal a little closer than at the zoo and for free. I would definitely go again.

Interesting pit stop as you sightsee Baton Rouge. They really like this cat. Not a whole lot to see but the expense they have gone to to make this cat comfortable.

LSU has done a nice job with the tiger habitat. Mike was awake when we visited. As the signs say: do not turn your back to the glass or tap on the glass or bring small animals. This is a real bengal tiger, and very a very beautiful one.

Geaux Tigers and see Mike VII
Oct 2020
We see Mike VII everytime we are in town. It is great habitat. He is not always out, so do not be surprised if he is inside. He does what he wants. He is still young, so if you do see him, you may notice how big his paws are for his body. The picture on my avatar was taken about 6 hours before kick off of game.

A few things to clear up:

1) Mike VII, like his predecesors, is a rescue tiger. Meaning, LSU found him at a big cat rescue, Wild at Heart Wildlife Center, where he was rescued by Wild at Heart, when they took over from the prior owner who abused him;

2) Tigers do not live in prides. They are solitary cats and in the wild only come into contact to mate or if mama is raising babies. I have seen people say he should be in a pride in the comments.

Just want clarity since I have read some comments that say he does not belong in the habitat and should be free. I get the sentiment. But, he is a rescue cat, born in captivity, not by LSU, but now taken care of by LSU.
