"A Bird Sanctuary" San Antonio Zoo Tip by jinkoe

San Antonio Zoo, San Antonio: 7 reviews and 18 photos

  Lots of birds
by jinkoe

The San Antonio zoo seems to be a more intimate zoo than most. While relatively large, the animals are close; so close, in fact, there is more than one opportunity to reach out and touch an animal or feed one (against the rules).

One of the several highlights of the zoo is the rhino area. They may stink, but they seem to be pretty domesticated and willing to get close. They also appear to be willing to eat from the hands of zoo visitors.

The main attraction, however, is the wide assortment of birds at the zoo. In one area, near the "peak" of the zoo, there is an environment perfect for birds to fly freely, and the netted-in setting allows for the feeling of the woods or jungle. Be careful; the birds will dive bomb mercilessly...just be aware of where you are sitting.
