Photo Day at the Houston Zoo
Close up with the Carnivores
Saturday May 31, 20147:00 – 9:00 a.m.
Lions, jaguars and bears, oh my! Join us for Photo Day in May as we highlight a few of our carnivore ambassadors, providing guests with special photo opportunities.
Photo Day allows photographers of all skill levels a chance to visit the Zoo and take great animal photos, all before the Zoo opens. Guests can enjoy the cooler morning weather and lighter crowd, plus see the animals at a time of day when they are most active.
We also provide event guests with continental breakfast. Please note there will be walking for this event so please wear appropriate shoes. A Zookeeper from the Carnivore Department will also be available to talk about our featured animals and answer any questions.
This event is rain or shine. All activities are included in your ticket price.
