This place has an impressive showcase of attractions although some are still under construction, clean and organized. Just follow the map and you won't miss anything there is to see. Ride the camel, it's an awesome experience for the young and old.

It is an interesting place to visit if you are in San Antonio for few days. You support this small zoo by visiting and also you spend some good time. Feeding the giraffe is worth trying and worth the wait

I have taken snacks for my kids before and have not had any problems. The food there is very pricey.
