I think PrideRock has been a dream of mine since I was a kid. I remember my parents taking me to zoos and I would sneak away and sit in front of the lions and tigers in awe, watching them pace back and forth in front of me probably knowing how much they impressed me. I loved them then and I love them now and all my dreams have come true. Our story begins in 1992, in Terrell, Texas... The work is hard and the days are long, but we are blessed beyond measure to have the opportunity to share our lives with these big cats. Carol Holliman
The appeal of the magnificent, great cats is alluring and spell binding to most people. Man has had an affinity with these wonderful and mystifying creatures for thousands of years in most cultures. Images of lions, tigers and cougars have always represented royalty, courage, strength, and dignity as they have been respected, feared and admired. No wonder in today's generation of materialism in this country that wanting to own one of these magnificent animals has become an all too easy reality.
