    Just left. Great zoo. I love how almost all the animals are endangered. Let's you get a chance to see them before they're all gone. Cobras are awesome, must see the reptile place!

    Monorail is awesome and well worth it. The habitats here are amazing, you can tell they are committed to the role of zoos in supporting animal rehabilitation and awareness of ecological issues.

    First timer and was not disappointed! I think it's better than Ft. Worth. Loved the different animals they had, came in just in time for the snake feeding (gross!) and LOVED feeding the giraffes!

    The new addition to this zoo has been a shop stopper. If you've ever wanted to feed giraffes, this is the zoo to do it at! The atmosphere is exotic and breath-taking. Go and visit the animals.

    Apparently the ice cream people don't ever know when Foursquare has a deal on the free ice cream. They didn't even check mine, even though ibdid in fact have one.

    Make sure to check in on four square for a free scoop of ice cream in the cafeteria. This zoo is huge! Gotta check out the giraffes, the grill for an up close look at lions, and the bird show.

    Best time and days to come to the zoo is on a holiday morning. No one is ever here. Cooler in the morning and animals more active.

    Whoever made the navigation signs at this zoo needs to be punched in the throat. Like the nighttime summer hours though.

    Giraffes!!! Been going every year at least since the "giants of the savanna" thing opened up!

    Go to the Serengeti Grill in the hot part of the day. The lions like to lay right next to the window.

    No surprise the food options are overpriced processed junk food. The bird show is amazing and well worth checking out.

    Dallas Zoo is the LARGEST zoo in the state and the ONLY zoo in Texas where you can see koalas! Visit them at 1:30 every day for a special Keeper Encounter and to see them awake and moving around.

    Best buy, conservation cup. $1.00 refills & five locations in the zoo to fill it up. Best part is that nothing goes to the landfill. The cup is totally reusable! Conservation at its best!!

    Take the monorail. Nice break from walking and you see some spots you can't walk to.

    Go ape at the Dallas Zoo. It's the largest zoological park in Texas (bigger than Fort Worth's Zoo). The Dallas Zoo is home to 406 species and 1,800 animals (6,800 counting invertebrates).
