This is the best. A cool, forward thinking attraction lo those many years ago, and it's a lot of fun to just sit and watch. The educational component is good as well, and all in all, it's a fun stop when you're in Lubbock.

This was my biggest disappointment when I arrived in Lubbock. Can not describe it, you have to see it to beleive that the name is much bigger than what it really is. A few holes in ground ... that is it !!

Up close and personal with the history of saving an important animal in the ecosystem. Be sure to bring along celery, carrots or Cheetos to feed them. They wag their tails, bark, and scurry around eating the food if they're hungry. Easy learning board showing...More
