General Description: The Wildlife Habitat is a 15 acre oasis hidden within the confines of the Flamingo Hotel and Casino, adjacent to the pool area. It is filled with lush foliage imported from around the world including varieties of pines, palms and magnolia. Its islands, streams and sparkling waterfalls are filled with more than 300 birds, including Impeyn and silver pheasants, Gambel's quail, a Crown crane, two ibis, swans, ducks, parrots, an abundance of turtles and koi, and, occasionally, penguins on loan from the Dallas Zoo. In addition, appropriately enough, it is probably most noted for its flock of live Chilean flamingos.
Special Attraction or Points of Interest: For an added bonus you can see the penguins as they are fed daily at 8:25 a.m. and 2:55 p.m.
Primary Activity: Photographing.
Secondary Activities: Bird Watching.

Elevation: 2,107 feet.
Best Time To Visit: Open daily, 8 a.m. - dusk. A visit there is best done during daytime hours in order to fully see and appreciate the surroundings, although it’s also fun to go at night to see the animals sleeping.
Difficulty: Easy. One can walk through the habitat’s winding walkways, peer over bridges at the colorful koi in the lagoons below, and take a breather by sitting on benches scattered among the palms and magnolias throughout the habitat.
Facilities: Numerous restroom and dining facilities inside the casino proper.
Estimated Round-trip Time: 15-20 minutes driving time plus whatever number of hours you want to spend taking photographs and relaxing in this tranquil environment. Check the links below, and the slideshow at the end, for a glimpse of the type of beautiful photographs this place provides.

03/11/2011 Trip Notes: My friend Jim got a comp for two free nights at the Flamingo for entering a promotional Texas Hold’em tournament and gave Connie and I the room for two nights. While there we spent several hours visiting the Wildlife Habitat. After roaming around and seeing all of the birds, fowl and fish, Connie just sat on one of the benches and reveled in the beauty and peacefulness of the surroundings while I wandered around snapping pictures galore.
