Cameron Park Zoo

This exhibit at the Cameron Park Zoo explores the 7 distinct biomes of Texas along the Brazos River Basin. More than 100 species and 600 specimens are represented as guests explore the river. Highlights of the journey include a

You begin your journey in the hull of a Spanish ship that once brought explorers to this country looking for the Seven Cities of Gold. Inside, a 50,000-gallon saltwater tank holds a variety of marine life from the Gulf Reef. A boardwalk carries you out of the ship and onto the Gulf Islands free flight aviary for shore birds. Alligators can be seen from a trapper’s shack before guests move into the Piney Woods region where cougars lounge around and black bears forage on a hillside. You can pull up a rocking chair to watch the river otters while the kids climb into a ranger’s station and slide through the exhibit pool in an acrylic tube. Once you’re rested and the kids have burned a little energy, continue on to the Cross Timbers region to find coyotes and once-native jaguars and ocelot. Don’t forget the nocturnal barn on the Plateau before you moving on to the High Plains. Here, bison roam and prairie dogs scurry while you read up on Native American teepees.
