This is not an ordinary zoo, but rather, a sanctuary for abandoned, former laboratory, hard luck, and zoo surplus exotic animals. Nestled on the edge of the hill country, the zoo features more of an open, ranch style setting, with well-cared for animals including tigers, bears, monkeys, and lions, along with educational programs. Kids will enjoy the train, on which you can see areas and animals that are otherwise unreachable at the zoo. This is an entirely non-profit facility--they receive zero funding from the city.
