Fort Worth Zoo Lions, Tigers, Antelope, Exotic Birds



The Fort Worth Zoo was voted best zoo by Family Life Magazine, LA Times, and USA Today.   It is home to 5,000 exotic and native animals.   When the zoo opened in 1909 the animals to see were one lion,
two bear cubs, an alligator
a coyote,

a peacock and a few rabbits.

The Herpetarium was completed in the summer of 1960 with one of the largest exhibits of reptiles and amphibians in the world.  The original Herpetarium closed in 2009 to be replaced by the Museum of Living Art in 2010.

Zookeepers are available to let you touch a snake.  The scales are scratchy to the touch.

World of Primates opened in 1992 with an indoor and outdoor exhibit of gorilla groups.

Watch the apes eat lettuce and other treats for primates.
Asian Falls opened in 1992 with an exotic exhibit of White Tigers.


White and Malayan tigers share a habitat of majestic waterfalls flowing.
White Tigers enjoy the sound of water splashing on rocks.
Raptor Canyon is an aviary that opened in 1993.  It is home to crowned eagles,
An Andean condor,

a milky eagle owl, harpy eagles, and bateleur eagles.

The cheetah exhibit opened in 1994 with exotic black spotted wild cats.
Flamingo Bay is home to the 70 peach colored birds who love to flock together.

Parrot Paradise was opened in 2004 to a free flight aviary.  Children have fun feeding the parakeets and cockatoos.  .
The rain forest habitat is home to bright colorful red, white and blue Macaws.  They have large beaks to crack open shells.

Animals from Australia hop with their friends.  Kangaroos carry their babies in their pouch.
 Kangaroos have large ears to help them listen for predators who might want to harm them.  My what large tails they have.


Black and white penguins have a thick fur to keep them warm.

Wild Pheasants roam the Texas Hill Country to  make the hillside colorful.  Their eyes can spot food to eat.

Angel Fish love to play chase in  aquariums for fish who love to swim in coral reefs all over the world.

Antelope love to play in the open grassy fields of green.

It takes alot of workers to help maintain a safe place for animals to be healthy.  Thank you zookeepers for providing such a wonderful zoo for all to enjoy.
