I really enjoyed this zoo. It has a safari feel upon arrival at the front entrance with a wooden building. It was air conditioned inside the gift shop if you need to step in from the heat. The zoo animals were all great & friendly...More

This was a nice surprise. They brought out animals to pet. The lion and tiger exhibit was cool. The bird exhibit was creepy (in a good way) but the kids loved it. Nice little zoo! Would go again.

Stopped by here on a hot day, and really enjoyed the shade! The zoo is small, but you're right up on top of the exhibits, which is great with the big cats. The kids got a kick out of a raccoon who'd gotten into the...More

Decent price, eatery is expensive, snake room always smells, but we do enjoy our trips there. They did away with the petting zoo, which was disappointing. 2 pokemon gyms in the area.

The Texas Zoo is very unique and special especially for a town of Victoria's size. It has great events for all ages throughout the year. It's a fun place for kids birthday parties. It is not too big so young children can enjoy it without...More

In the words of Lt. Joe Kenda, "Well, my my". We visited the zoo on a Friday morning morning, and were surprised to find a hand full of animals and a facility in a somewhat deplorable condition. There was an empty otter enclosure with extremely...More
