Event Highlights

TXU Energy presents Prehistoric Beasts offers guests an exciting opportunity to get an up-close look at towering predators that once roamed the Earth. Come face-to-face with an 8-foot-tall Terror Bird, Dire Wolf large enough to hunt bison, a towering giant bear, T-Rex’s larger cousin Giganotosaurus, and many more.

We’ll help you spot the connections between animals at the Zoo and these prehistoric creatures during your journey back in time. After you experience the exhibit make sure to visit their modern-day descendants, including the Malayan tiger, green anaconda, black bear, bald eagle, and more.
