Bring the Zoo to You


Bring our fun, interactive learning experiences to you with biofacts such as animal skins, skulls, and mounts as well as an opportunity to touch live animals. Our trip fees are estimated by mileage, and we travel no more than 60 miles away from the Houston Zoo. We do not provide animals for a “petting zoo” experience, birthday parties, or private residences.
