Total must for kids who love animals. It’s like a mini zoo, snake exhibit, and learning center all in one. For $45 all three of us got in and spent hours there. We saw the carnivores get fed. Played in the petting zoo. Watched a...More

Pretty small but very fun, stopped on the way to Austin. It's pretty open so going in the middle of the day during summer isn't recommended, you'll be sweating bullets in the Texas heat.

When my wife wanted to stop I wasn’t really excited. All that changed when we walked thru the attractions. This is a wonderful zoo. A must see.

Employees were so nice, the animal keepers as well, animals were active and I loved the free roaming chickens looking for a spare mealworm from the lizard feeding area. Can't wait to be back this fall! Love the addition of animal encounters!

I like it very much. A great place to stop when taking a long car trip. We especially enjoyed watching the staff interact with the animals.

The Zoo was so much more that the Snakes. I don't care for snakes. The other animals are so much better. There were lots of newborn goats. So cute. They had lions, camels, prairie dogs, peacocks, foxes, chickens, river otters, hyenas and much much more.

We went during Texas Spring Break. There are lots of snakes -- unfortunately the way they are displayed my seven year old was to short to see the snakes that were in the top row of the displays (there are 3 rows). With so many...More
