More than 500 critters and wild things, including central Texas's only white tiger, frolic across the grounds of Capital of Texas Zoo. Wide-eye baby lemurs and junior kangaroo joeys melt visitors' hearts with fuzzy little faces and jovial antics, and more than 30 fruit bats swap smoothie recipes in the new nocturnal animals house. Other new exhibits play host to a flock of quaker parrots, a gaggle of European wild boars, and a pair of endangered Himalayan black bears dubbed BooBoo and BiBi. Cups of treats draw the attention of fauna in the petting area, surrounding food-wielding patrons with affection from friendly creatures. The black leopard cubs will also be introduced October 22nd at ZooBoo.
A guided tour grants a close-up view of Mother Nature without stealing Smoky the Bear's diary by visiting various enclosures in intimate groups of 15 or fewer people. Though tours will vary, guests may have the chance to hand feed a lemur, stroke the tawny hide of a deer, or touch a giant boa. Capital of Texas Zoo also hosts ZooBoo on October 22nd from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., featuring the introduction of the 10-week old black leopard cubs, a reptile show, and a bat and owl demonstration. Groupon customers are encouraged to attend the event in costume as treats and prizes will be awarded.

About Capital of Texas Zoo
More than 500 animals inhabit the grounds at Capital of Texas Zoo, a haven for wildlife education and a breeding ground for more than 14 endangered species. The zoo's residents include zebras, ringtail lemurs, and a rare white tiger, not to be confused with a ghost tiger. Other appearances from the animal kingdom include peacocks, kangaroos, turtles, lions, and brand-new dingo babies.
Educational animal shows highlight a specific member of the zoo, such as the Wings show, which stars eurasian eagle owl Hedwig, who has made appearances on Late Show with David Letterman and in the movie Furry Vengeance. The zoo also takes to the road with traveling animal shows that involve a cast of six exotic reptiles, mammals, and birds, which makes appearances at birthday parties, schools, or events. With lessons catered to the age of the audience, the animals teach children to respect other living things and remind adults why they can’t keep falcons as pets.
