The zoo is home to more than 4500 animals from over 800 species. Be sure to take a spin on the Wildlife Carousel, featuring hand-carved & hand-decorated animals that showcase many endangered species.
The zoo has an outstanding iPhone app that lists keeper talks, special events and has great GPS ability to keep track of your group
There is a new iphone app for this place you need to check out
On rainy days, you might have the place all to yourselves. Just duck inside the tropical bird house, aquarium, reptile house, and the Natural Encounters building. Powered by ParentsConnect.com

Became a member of the Houston Zoo!
Check out the Meet The Keeper Talks & animal presentations. They are different every day
If you're stuck at the Medical Center for some reason, take a walk to the Zoo. The lion exhibit is good.
Adults $12, Kids $8.
The Twiga Terrace restaurant in the back between the African Forest and the giraffes sells beer. And you can sit outside and get drunk with a giraffe.
The new African section is pretty cool!
Stop by the orangutan exhibit and say hello to Indah and her foster mom, Cheyenne.
The Africa exhibit is pretty awesome. at the end of it you can feed the giraffes for $5 for 3 big pieces of lettuce at 11am and 2 pm the lightest colored giraffe is pregnant I have her all mine lol
For $5 you can feel lettuce to the giraffes. Totally. Worth. It.
Military gets in free 2 adults 3 kids
I love this place. Take your kids here and let them ride the tigers!
today and tomorrow are the last days to see the dinosaurs
Great photo opportunities, but, hot and steamy in June!
The jellyfish are my fave!
Great place to hang outwith the family on a beautiful day
Zoo lights is a wonderful outing for the family. They've added over a million lights since last year.
This is a perfect attraction for family members. They also offer a summer camp for children up to 6th grade I believe to get acquainted with the zoo and become comfortable with the animals.
You should turn off your camera flash. It hurts the animals.
In an effort to cut down on waste, Houston Zoo does not provide straws w drinks. So bring your own!
Don't get food here. If you do, you can expect to pay about $30 for 3 hamburgers.
Ust gets in for free!! Ü
Nice place, just don't go in the summer! TOO HOT! Lol.
Great place to take the kiddos!
Summer is coming buy the season pass its worth it, and yesss you can bring yout own food.
Houston Zoo Lights is awesome! The electric sheep in the enchanted forest were my favorite!
The Zoo Lights were amazing! Go if you haven't already.
Once the weather becomes cooler, Weekdays around noon, is the best time to come, not a lot of people and the animals are out.
Free admission on the first Tuesday of each month. Great place for families, but also a great idea for a first date. If not from Houston, prepare for intense humidity and Texas heat.
Hello Zaboo-Mafoo !

I love the zoo!! It's a good place to bring the kids and the kids at heart... There's cool little events throughout the zoo... Lots of fun!!!
feed giraffes its worth $5.00 loved it
Please make sure your kids don't hit the glass, or tease the animals. It is extremely rude and makes the animals anxious.
FREE on FIRST TUES of EVERY MONTH after 2PM. Enjoyed it the 3rd time I was here. They have MORE JELLYFISHES, my favorite things to see along with the silly monkeys!
This is a nice place 2 go 2 and see the monkeys in Houston.
