This Zoo reminds me of a movie scene. It is an awesome place to visit if you are in the Austin area. Don't miss the talking bird! He whistles and says I Love You! Lots of animals to see once you get inside! I'm going to ask if I can feed those cute little Lemurs next time...Seen a picture in the website.. This is one awesome experience for kids. I wish more people knew about this zoo, These people caring for the animals are dedicated .

Love this intimate and sweet zoo. They have an active breeding program for endangered species. My son asks to visit every three weeks or so.

I am used to small zoos and understand that this a privately owned one, but was a little sad to see the animal enclosures so small. The bear there had a cage the size of a bedroom compared to the much larger areas for the deer/goats. There were several animals that had dry water bowls and the bird enclosure with the 20+ blue and green birds in it must have had a hole in the netting because two of the birds were out of the cage sitting on top of it. It was nice to see the new young Hippo and the white tiger and our favorite part by far was the Guinea Pigs!! We LOVED the tons of guinea pigs (though some were visibly in rough shape due to others biting their ears and such). All in all, we liked the animals there but wished that they had the resources to make them more comfortable.

We LOVED this place!! Granted, we had to drive out into the middle of nowhere to find it,so the gravel road was not a surprise to us. Nor were the rustic accomodations or the trails/paths themselve; they were clearly marked and wide enough to allow multiple groups moving at the same pace. The animals appeared VERY well taken care of, and we noticed food and water out in all the enclosures. Even so, most of the animals LOVED the food we purchased on site and my only regret is we didn't purchase enough! (We won't make that same mistake on our next visit!) We encountered multiple staff members and they all took time to share their knowledge with us and were super friendly and nice. Other visitors would stop to chat and the children had such a wonderful time running from enclosure to enclosure. If you want a great family (or individual) experience, head on out to the Capital of Texas Zoo: you won't regret it if you go with the flow!

I enjoy going to zoos - good ones that is - so this is not the review of a "zoo hater." Visiting this "zoo" was a disturbing experience for and my wife because this place pales in comparison to what I would expect of any reputable zoo where all the animals receive decent care and housing. The conditions that some of these animals were living were deplorable...not living in their own feces deplorable, but horrible none-the-less.. There were many examples we noticed of animals in habitats that were clearly too small for them, even by zoo standards. Two animals in particular were in enclosures that were literally not twice as big as they were. If you are going in part to experience the "petting zoo" part of this zoo it is not worth the effort. With the exception of the bird habitat where you can get up close to the birds, all the regular animals that are part of a normal petting zoo like goats and pigs are behind wire mesh gates. Your kids will be able to reach their fingers through to feed the animals, but that will be the extent of their contact. And somebody might want to let the zookeepers know that "commercially available food" is not what guinea pigs in the wild eat. Seriously, that is what the information sign listed as their natural food source. To be fare, my kids had a fine time and there are a decent variety of animals. And the animals that are big attractions - like the lion, etc. - seems to be well cared for. That said, I'll never go back to this zoo again.

I love this Zoo! It is really nice for a small zoo, the staff is extremely friendly the animals are very well cared for and were never lacking water! The bird and reptile show were super fun for my 5 and 6 year old and they loved the experinece were you can go feed and pet animals, I definately recommend going in spring and early summer because there are TONS of babies and you get the experience of holding and feeding baby animals. It was great. Yes, thay do need a little improving on the inclosures and entrrance but other than that, I feel it will soon be a fantastic zoo
