This is a very good zoo for a small town. Definitely recommend getting a membership, for a family it is only $40 for the full year. You can see many animals including lions, tigers, jaguars, hippos, giraffes, a rhino, and plenty of snakes (in a snake house) and peacocks (running loose). Don't miss out on riding the train, it is... 更多

For the size population Lufkin boasts a fantastic zoo. They are adding gorillas soon and just had a white lion cub. They are currently working to make all the habitats more natural. A great trip for animal lovers or a family with kids. While you are there take a ride on the Z&OO railway. A lions club provided tradition.
We have been to a few zoos and although this one is not a large one like big city I really like this bc all the animals are up close and personal there isn't gates or fences blocking your view and there are peacocks walking by you the whole time and a year membership for a family of 4 is... 更多
