This is no ordinary zoo. The Austin Zoo is a residential space for rescued animals, and the forever home of 300 animals, across 100 different species. As you wander about, learn the name of each animal, discover its furry or scaly past, and find out how it came to be at the zoo from the story boards by each enclosure.
Alternatively, wait for the live demos and talks by the passionate staff!
Want to feed the goats, deer, llamas, alpacas, and sheep? Just buy them some food from the gift shop and see who's hungry.

Animals to Find at Austin Zoo
Austin Zoo has a wide array of animals and species, available for you to meet face-to-face! Get to see them when you visit or scroll on down to get a preview of the surprises and wonders waiting for you at the zoo.
Their big cat family consists of lions, cheetahs, cougars, tigers, jaguars, and leopards. Unfortunately, these big cats are either threatened or endangered. It is imperative that we support movements and organizations that prioritize the safety and protection of these animals.
Reptiles are non-arguably one of the most amazing creatures to ever walk (or slither) on the grounds of the Earth! Here at Austin Zoo, catch the most mesmerizing reptiles that include tortoises, turtles, lizards, and snakes!
A fun fact: One of the most notable differences between tortoises and turtles is that tortoises spend most of their time exploring and roaming on land while turtles are more into spending time in the water.
Whether they are birds that fly or not, find them at the Austin Zoo! Their birds include cockatoos, macaws, and peafowls! Peafowls include male peacocks and – wait for it – female peahens! Their beautiful fluff of feathers are sure to capture anyone’s attention with shades of blue and green on elegant display.
