A nonprofit recue zoo, Austin Zoo and Animal Sanctuary provides natural Texas habitats and safe haven to more than 300 rescued animals of more than 100 different species. Stroll across unpaved trails of crushed granite gravel to visit big cats such as tigers, leopards, or african lions wearing bejeweled crowns. An optional 15-minute train ride whisks visitors on a tour past animals relaxing on real grass and landscaping. Take time to visit newcomers Jeckle, the golden-handed tamarin, and Mikhail and Nikolai, a duo of red foxes, or purchase some animal food ($1) at the petting zoo to hand-feed goats, sheep, deer, and thrifty zoo staff.

Austin Zoo

Austin Zoo originated as Good Day Ranch in 1990 featuring pony rides and goat-milking demonstrations. Over the next four years, the founders began rescuing exotic animals and evolving into a rescue center, renaming the facility under its current moniker. After becoming a safe haven for more than 300 rescued animals of more than 100 different species, the Austin Zoo began the process of becoming a nonprofit organization, which it completed in 2000. Housed in native Texas Hill Country enclosures, the animals can enjoy real grass and landscaping instead of concrete exhibits or studio apartments. African lions and Bengal tigers stretch out in the big cat habitats while colobus monkeys and a marmoset swing from tree to tree in monkey areas. In addition to wild creatures, the zoo houses domesticated animals such as a miniature donkey, potbellied pigs, and llamas.

Great local zoo. I love that you can get so close to the animals. Watch out for the peacocks though.

Buy some animal food so you can feed the cute deer and goats! Cute zoo that does a lot of good work for sick animals.

Keep your expectations in check and consider this an outing that kids will enjoy; it is not the San Diego Zoo by any means but more like a very distant relative. I might also pick a cool day when the big animals are more apt to be active.
