The weather may be chilly, but we've got a cool deal for you! Bundle up and come see many of our animals for just $8 this winter. Warm up inside the Dallas Zoo's indoor learning areas including the Herpetarium, Bug U!, the Jake L. Hamon Gorilla Conservation Research Station, the Highland Hippo Hut and the Simmons Safari Base Camp.

Plus, now through January 31:
Learn all about African penguins with daily keeper chats and feedings at 10:30am at the Don Glendenning Penguin Cove. (Activities are weather dependent)
Make a new friend! Meet a penguin right outside the Wonders of the Wild Amphitheater at 2:30pm daily.
Plus, learn how you can protect these endangered birds at our Penguin Conservation Station daily from 10am–3pm, also at Penguin Cove. (Activities are weather dependent)

Note: Prime Meridian Cafe in ZooNorth is getting a new look and will be closed through until the end of February for renovations. In the meantime, Sweet Treats and the Coop on the Fly food truck will be open every day.
