Learn what they eat and how they are cared for as a member of the Houston Zoo family. Meet our amazing ambassadors and find out how you and your group can take action to save animals in the wild on your next ZooMobile!

We’ll surprise you with a selection of delightful critters; it is not possible to reserve specific animals when you schedule your ZooMobile.


Booking Your ZooMobile

Before you book, please be sure to read our policies and procedures. Note that ZooMobiles are an educational presentation for schools, organizations or festivals; we do not provide animals for a “petting zoo” experience, birthday parties, or private residences.
