  • Fixed up nice since the flood. We like the new set up. The cages that hold rabbits you can feed. You can purchase lettuce in the store. You can also pet them at times when a handler brings one out. The train no longer works that gave kids rides. My favorite animal is the otter. Was kinda disappointed to see them have little water the day we went. I mean they had enough to stay wet and move around but usually they have lots of water. 💁 The goats make their way to you for feed. They are cute! Staff is friendly as well. The store items to purchase are nice as well. 👌
  • The Texas Zoo is always fun to go to. It is small, but it has so much too see and the staff are packed full of information. They have peacocks that roam around. They are so beautiful and they keep the place very clean. I haven't been to another zoo that you can see the animals so up close. Come check it out for yourself.
