The daytime zoo is full of marvels, but the zoo after hours is an entirely different scene, man. As the temps drop, the nightlife picks up. Here a pack of dogs runs patterns in the backfield, and over there a big cat scans the future for clues. The birds get louder, the reptiles more sassy, and there's even activities for kids. What's more, as the sun ebbs, you can often catch uncanny views of yourself reflected in the glass separating you from the beasts inside. Happy hunting!
Thanks to TXU Energy, the Houston Zoo is once again staying open late, so you can enjoy the animals in the cooler evening weather. Join us for Cool Nights every Friday evening from June 16 through August 11. From 5 to 8 p.m. guests can enjoy added music and fun family activities that are sure to entertain kids and adults alike!
