It is no wonder the San Antonio Zoo is gaining recognition and well-deserved praise with their recent additions like F.C. Hixon Bird House, Neotropica, Project Selva 4D Theater, the upcoming corpse flower bloom, and the launch of attraction Planet Earth, Deep Sea Adventures.

“We have had an unrelenting focus on improving the guest experience at San Antonio Zoo, and this is an incredible testament to that work,” said Morrow.

Guests can count on more exciting attractions coming to the zoo in the near future.

“A new entrance, plaza, and world-class gorilla habitat will soon be added to the zoo in the next couple of years,” according to Morrow.
