The Capital of Texas Zoo is one of Greater Austin's and Bastrop's most exciting animal


Just 20 minutes east from downtown Austin, the Zoo is home to over 500 rare and beautiful wild animals. 

The Zoo's twin missions include Wildlife Education and Conservation of Endangered Species.  Small and intimate, the Capital of Texas Zoo is one of Austin and Bastrop area's most unique experiences!

Come and meet:  "Tank" the Hippo!!! 


Tank was a 1 1/2 year old baby weighing around 800 pounds. He has grown to an 

extraordinary 4000 pounds Fortunately, he is not a lap hippo :)

The Capital of Texas Zoo is the largest and fastest growing zoo in Central Texas. We have over 400 family members who buy a yearly membership so they can visit us numerous times throughout the year.

Our zoo is small compared to places like San Antonio or Houston, but we are a  pretty, intimate little place with happy, healthy animals.  We have breeding programs for fourteen endangered species here, and this is our main reason for existing. Most people love us. Give us a chance, and we predict you will love us, too.
