Elephants, zebras and tigers, oh my! See this and so much more by spending a day at the Fort Worth Zoo. The oldest zoo in Texas, it opened in 1909 with less than 10 animals, but now houses nearly 7,000 amazing creatures. Every day, visitors come face to face with ferocious sharks, rare white tigers and cuddly sea otters.
The zoo is separated into different parts of the world. Hop on the Yellow Rose Express Train and take a ride to Africa to see the giraffes and rhinos or to Australia to see the kangaroos. Make time to see what the great state of Texas has to offer in Texas Wild, and stop to pet a pig, chicken or Texas longhorn.
The newest additions to the zoo are Belle and Bowie, the Asian elephant calves, the biggest babies in town. Stop by Asian Falls to see the adorable pair and all three generations of these gentle giants.
Refreshments can be found throughout the day at the Bluebonnet Café, Crocodile Café and the ice cream parlor. And don’t forget the souvenirs! The zoo is open daily with half-price admission on Wednesdays. Create lifelong memories by spending a day with family and friends at the Fort Worth Zoo.
