Here We Grow Again

Your Houston Zoo is working to create incredible experiences to connect you to wildlife and inspire action to save animals in the wild. On your next visit, you’ll see some construction fencing throughout the heart of the zoo, and some re-routed paths. Rest assured, you’re not missing out on any animals; however, you may have to take a different course to see your favorites! Stay tuned for exciting details about the future of your Houston Zoo.

Feed the Giraffes


Zoo guests have a unique opportunity to interact with our Masai giraffe family at the Giraffe Feeding Platform. Our giraffes are among the most beloved at the Houston Zoo for their charm and curiosity about their visitors!

Make your way up the ramp to the shaded feeding area for a view of the giraffes, zebra, and ostriches while you offer a crunchy lettuce leaf snack to your new long-necked pals.
