Our award-winning zoo has just been voted the best in Texas for the second time!
This year, the Texas Travels Awards named our zoo the best in Texas and second in the United States for its dedication to animal welfare, education and conservation.
Our zoo was also named the best in Texas by Reader’s Digest in 2019.
Neotropica, a completely redesigned bird house and the Project Selva 4D Theater are among the most recent additions to San Antonio Zoo’s already-extensive roster of attractions. All of this, along with the recent blooming of the foul-smelling corpse flower and the opening of ‘Planet Earth, Deep Sea Adventures,’ has made the San Antonio Zoo a must-see for residents and visitors alike.
“We are honored once again to be called the Best Zoo in Texas as well as one of the best in the country,” said Tim Morrow, President and CEO of San Antonio Zoo. We’ve worked tirelessly to make San Antonio Zoo a better experience for our visitors, and this is a wonderful example of that effort.” As exciting as our future may be, the zoo will soon have an entirely new entrance plaza, as well as a world-class gorilla habitat in the next few years.”
The zoo in San Antonio recently announced its first-ever corpse flower bloom watch. Because of its strong rotting flesh odor, the smelly flower has been dubbed the corpse flower. The zoo is also allowing the public to nominate a name for the flower’s stench.
RELATED: Please contribute a name for the ‘corpse flower’ at the San Antonio Zoo, which has a foul odor.
The Sumatran orchid, native to Indonesian rainforests, can take up to ten years to bloom for the first time before it is declared endangered. The zoo expects it to bloom toward the end of the week.
Head to the best zoo in Texas and take a tour, feed a giraffe, or ride the Zoo Train.
