Nothing out here.
Mar 2021 • Family
Very disappointed. There is nothing here. Very few animals. Everything is blocked off, everything is “closed” due to covid. Hardly anything out here. There’s more rodents and birds than anything and I could of have seen those free of charge before entering the zoo. We drove 1.5 hours and only started 20min bc here was nothing to do and nothing to look at
Super disappointed:-/ sadly won’t be returning

What a nice little zoo with friendly animals!
Oct 2019
The Texas zoo is a great place to see and even pet some beautiful animals. Friendly rabbits, birds and goats looking for a handout on one side, majestic jaguars and other cats (not for petting!). Nice family place and looks like they do a lot of shows on weekends for the kids. Very inexpensive!

I had a good time! Peacocks, monkeys, ducks! It was a good time while waiting for my husband. People were very nice and I had the whole place to myself.

Go go go

Y’all gotta go! This is really a south texas experience. Armadillos! Rattlesnakes! Train rides! My 6yr old great nephew has visited since he was in a stroller and now goes for school field trips. You can feed the animals by hand. And its a great outdoor experience. Situated inside the Riverside park. Take a picnic. Go go go!

Educational and Fun!

The Texas Zoo is professional, clean, and the animals are well taken care of. I actually touched a real python. I learned so much about the python and other unique animals.

Watching the bears eat was new to me. The two bears were featured on the Jimmy Fallon show. I saw two jaguars and bald eagles. There is a restroom, concession stand, and gift shop.

They have summer programs for kids to learn and play games. The Texas Zoo is great for families. The employees really care about the animals. They will answer your questions.

We are lucky to have a zoo in Victoria.
The rabbits were so cute.
Overall, it was fun!

The bear and lynx encounters (as well as the entire zoo experience) were incredible!
Apr 2019 • Friends
My parents and I finally had the opportunity to visit the Texas Zoo, and were very impressed! I surprised them with both the Black Bear Encounter, and the Eurasian Lynx Encounter for their birthdays. The experiences were INCREDIBLE! The keepers were friendly, informative, and it was obvious they loved working with the animals. We were beyond thrilled with feeding the black bears, petting them, and their adorable cries for treats were the cutest thing I’ve ever heard! The Lynx was amazing, to watch her display natural behavior while playing, pet, and, of course, be rewarded with loud purring. Both the bears, and the lynx had the freedom to decide whether or not they interacted with you, respecting their boundaries and quality of life. That makes it even more special, when they do decide to interact the entire time! The money pain for the encounters goes toward the animal’s food, medical care, and the conservation efforts of the species itself. The entire zoo was clean, the gardens were beautiful, and the animals all seemed very content and healthy. Thank you, to the keepers who work so hard, to give these mostly rescued animals a healthy, and happy life. If you have any health issues, there are places to sit, cold drinks available for purchase, and the park outside the zoo is very peaceful. The zoo has done an impressive job, recovering from Hurricane Harvey’s floods. I will definitely be back, and highly recommend a visit, for both adults and children.

Great small zoo

This is a great small zoo located in Riverside Park. It features Texas animals. There are inside exhibits, as well as outside ones.

Small zoo but great opportunities. You really get to see the animals in nice habitats. Post hurricane they have cleaned it up and offer Some unique opportunities. My favorite is getting to feed the bears!

Small but Great zoo

The Texas Zoo might not be the largest zoo but the staff are friendly and offer guests more meaningful opportunities to interact with the animals. The animal experiences are a must and well worth the extra cost.
