An Ode to the Austin Zoo!

Peacocks, roosters, a lazy cat?   Zoos don’t get much more weird than that.

Tigers, tortoise, making friends.  I wonder what’s around the bend?

School kids, geese, feed a goat, too.  All this and more at the Austin Zoo!

“The mission of Austin Zoo and Animal Sanctuary is to assist animals in need through rescue, rehabilitation and education. We currently have over 300 animals from over 100 different species at the Zoo. Last year, over 175,000 people visited Austin Zoo. Over 32,000 were students and teachers visiting on field trips. Austin Zoo & Animal Sanctuary is a pleasant Hill Country zoo where the people of Austin can come to learn about the animals close-up, spend some time outdoors getting exercise, and have fun. It’s a place where we Austinites can truly make the most of our time together.”
