For centuries, the only way to see a kangaroo and a zebra on the same day was to ride the zebra to Australia or teleport to Africa via the wormhole found in every kangaroo's pouch.

Capital of Texas Zoo houses more than 500 critters and wild things, including central Texas's only white tiger. During the one-hour behind-the-scenes guided zoo tour, visitors wander through an array of engaging exhibits, where they will have the chance to feed and trade smoothie recipes with wide-eye baby lemurs and cuddly kinkajous. Every tour is different and can include a wide range of activities and interactions, ranging from bottle-feeding a baby deer to teaching zebras the art of blending in. Because tours are limited to a maximum of 15 people, it is recommended that visitors reserve their spot at least 48 hours ahead of time. Walk-in zoo-goers are also welcome and are encouraged to pass the time by browsing the zoo's host of critter-filled exhibits.
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.
