One of our daughters was extremely keen to see lions so we booked the MGM hotel so she could make frequent visits to the Lion Habitat. The Lion Habitat displays 1 – 3 lions in a two story plexiglass enclosure in a corner of the casino (the southwest corner, I think, if I have my directions straight). They are brought in from a site outside of Las Vegas where they have 37 lions. Of course, the Signature suites tower 3 where we booked is about as far as you can get in the MGM resort from the Lion Habitat. Nevertheless, our lion loving daughter visited at least once a day and since it was free, her persistence paid off. Most of the times, she went when the lions were sleeping. Still, she liked looking at the lions when they were sleeping on a clear plexiglass archway where you could get a close view and appreciate how big they are. But one time she visited, the trainers had them up and moving about. Many photos were taken and she was happy.
