If you answered “zoo,” you’re correct. The Fort Worth Zoo is a beautiful place to visit. Definitely worth coming to if you’re anywhere in the area. It has won awards and is included in the top museums of the U.S., depending on which list you’re reading.
Most people have their favorite animals they enjoy watching. At this zoo, the giraffes, zebras, lions and elephants are amazing to me. What awesome creatures! But they are not the only ones I enjoy. Just about every exhibit is interesting and fascinating.
I do have one word of warning! If you go in the wire-enclosed area where birds fly around and above you, beware! I went with my family, and my grand kids were enjoying looking around, that is until one of them pooped down the back of my grandson’s head and neck. He was terrified and it really was so gross. It wasn’t just a little bit of poop. It was massive! Needless to say, Mom and Dad cleaned him up and had to throw away his shirt. The gift shop saved the day by selling T-shirts and then everything was OK.
Now, I must add for those of you that answered, “Rain Forest,” that the Fort Worth Zoo does have a rain forest in their atrium area. And I forget to mention that the atrium is another one of my favorite things about this zoo. So if you’re thinking about visiting, I don’t believe you’ll be disappointed. I’ve never known anyone who was.
