    This Zoo is my favorite to go to eventually built it's own. The Ft. Worth zoo offers a variety of animals and plenty of shade. My favorite aspect is the "underground" aquarium view of the Penguins.

    The Fort Worth Zoo is an excellent choice for a location to bring you friends and family. My family and I visited this park six months ago and our favorite exhibit was the tundra inspired ecosystem.

    Get there when the zoo opens and go directly to the amazing bird enclosure. Buy a food stick and birds will swarm you to eat. If you don't get here until noon the birds are full!

    One of my favorite zoos on the planet! Habitats are clean and feel very natural. Visited in the fall w/great weather for activity. Zoo is huge so get there early.

    Great zoo with a great price. The animals were actually active during this visit (Sunday afternoon). The orangutans were very friendly and played catch with us. Food was average, typical for a zoo.

    Don't miss the "parrot" paradise- really parakeets and cockatiels- spend a little on seed sticks, but DoNot let your kids be the ones holding them right when you walk in. Birds flock to them crazily.

    Oh how fun. Even in the rain we had a blast seeing all the animals and the baby elephants are so cute! And you don't realize how big it actually is until you get in there!

    This is by far the best zoo. They had blocks of ice in the areas to keep the animals cool.

    I would suggest that the zoo catch the thousands of honey bees at the garbage can and put them on display in a honey comb!!! Or they could make the bees check their stingers at the gate. Just sayin'

    Great zoo. Big enough to use the train back, thank God! A big hit with my son! Wouldn't advise a winter trip, lots of the best animals are keeping warm out of site!

    If you go in the spring, you will get to see almost every animal they have to offer. Summer & winter are not the times you want to visit

    Bring your own water/drinks if you can, all the walking works up a thrust and can end up getting costly buying waters!

    This place is HUGE. Haven't been here in awhile. I love both the Dallas Zoo, and this zoo. Still, captivity makes me sad. Yes I have a love/hate relationship with zoos.

    The biggest of the gorillas sat by the window vomiting in his hand and eating it over and over and over again. Quite disgusting, but entertaining as well.
