Visit Mike the Tiger

Location of Tiger Habitat

Mike the Tiger is the only live tiger living on a college campus in the U.S. The Tiger Habitat is located on North Stadium Drive in Baton Rouge; the habitat sits between the Bernie Moore Track Stadium and the Pete Maravich Assembly Center and is across the street from Tiger Stadium. There is no fee to see Mike the Tiger.


There is visitor parking (including handicapped spaces) located on North Stadium Drive and adjacent to Tiger Stadium.


Mike is outside usually every day between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. (though times may vary), including weekends and holidays. Yard work is scheduled each Thursday morning, so Mike remains inside until that is done. When Mike is kept inside for yard work, maintenance or some other reason, it will be posted on Mike's social media platforms (, @mikethetiger and
