Dallas Zoo

The oldest and largest zoo in Texas started with just 2 deer and 2 lions in 1888. Today, the Dallas Zoo provides sanctuary to over 2,000 animals across more than 400 species.

Among its award-winning exhibits is “Giants of the Savanna”, the first man-made habitat in North America to house a variety of large species in a single exhibit, safari style. Other popular attractions at the Dallas Zoo include Otter Outpost, Penguin Cove, Chimpanzee Forest, Gorilla Research Center, Crocodile Isle, Bug Colonies, an Endangered Tiger Habitat, and Children’s Zoo.
