Dallas Zoo encompasses 95 acres of exotic and traditional zoo animals. Visitors are greeted at the entrance by the tallest statue in Texas—a 67.5 foot giraffe.

First timer and was not disappointed! I think it's better than Ft. Worth. Loved the different animals they had, came in just in time for the snake feeding (gross!) and LOVED feeding the giraffes!

Best $5 lettuce you've ever bought. Worth it to feed the giraffes & get up close & personal. You won't be disappointed.

My bf and I really enjoyed it, we got to feed the giraffes and ride a camel. We have a membership to a museum in Ohio so we got 1/2 off admission! 12 bucks for a very fun afternoon, I felt like a kid!

Go ape at the Dallas Zoo. It's the largest zoological park in Texas (bigger than Fort Worth's Zoo). The Dallas Zoo is home to 406 species and 1,800 animals (6,800 counting invertebrates).

This is an awesome attraction for visitors and residents a like. They have a children's zoo within the larger zoo where kids can pet and handle animals. The Aviary show is AWESOME!

Have lunch at the Serengeti Grill. Best place to watch the lions... and have a snack.

Make sure to check in on four square for a free scoop of ice cream in the cafeteria. This zoo is huge! Gotta check out the giraffes, the grill for an up close look at lions, and the bird show.

Best time and days to come to the zoo is on a holiday morning. No one is ever here. Cooler in the morning and animals more active.

Whoever made the navigation signs at this zoo needs to be punched in the throat. Like the nighttime summer hours though.

Go to the Serengeti Grill in the hot part of the day. The lions like to lay right next to the window.

Dallas Zoo is the LARGEST zoo in the state and the ONLY zoo in Texas where you can see koalas! Visit them at 1:30 every day for a special Keeper Encounter and to see them awake and moving around.

Best buy, conservation cup. $1.00 refills & five locations in the zoo to fill it up. Best part is that nothing goes to the landfill. The cup is totally reusable! Conservation at its best!!
