If stingrays, sharks and snakes aren’t for you, there are plenty of baby animals to meet and feed or small animals to cuddle as you get up close and personal to the zoo residents.
See the Busby quints and their family from TLC’s hit show OutDaughtered meet the animals when they play zookeeper for the day.
This is definitely not your average zoo, with zookeepers providing an interactive and educational experience as you go. Along with providing lots of information and answering questions, they will help you hold an Australian kookaburra, pat an otter’s belly or feed a sloth.
Families who like to keep it a little less extreme can ride a pony, pat a chicken or alpaca or bottle feed a baby goat, plus groove along with the dancing ostrich!
When you need a rest from your zookeeper duties, take a break at Lucky’s Hangout, which has a Cafe serving delicious snacks and drinks. Then it’s straight back to the excitement at the Bounce House and Arcade Games.
Houston Interactive Aquarium & Animal Preserve also offer birthday parties for the best celebration in town. There is a package to suit every budget starting from $18.95 per person plus tax. You can even add some special animal encounters and guest visits, such as a princess, pirate or mermaid!
Are you a teacher looking for a great field trip option? Why not take a trip to the zoo for some hands-on learning, with entry only $8.95 per student and teachers get in free!
This is the most up close and personal you will get to animals and birds in Houston. Make a booking today and discover a whole new side to wildlife.
