Texas, Our Texas! Wildlife Spotlight on Species Event

Contortionist SMCome out to the Houston Zoo and show off your Texas pride this Friday and Saturday, May 20th and 21st. We will be hosting a Native Texas Wildlife Spotlight on Species event highlighting and showcasing just some of Texas’s own native species living at the zoo. Here you can participate in fun activities, learn cool facts, watch training demonstrations, and much more! Activities are free with admission!

Don’t forget to check out Houston Urban Wildlife Facebook page where you can learn more about your creepy crawling friends or get more information about an animal you may have spotted in your backyard or even on your last hike.  By downloading your pictures to their page they will help to properly identify and give some fun facts about our native species.
