Welcome to the Capital of Texas Zoo

Capital of Texas Zoo
Welcomes  2019

Come and Meet "Tank the Hippo!"
When Tank was 1 1/2 he weighed around 800 pounds. He has grown to an EXTRAORDINARY 4000 pounds!!  
Fortunately, he is not a lap Hippo :) 

The Capital of Texas Zoo is one of Greater Austin's and Bastrop's most exciting adventures!
Just 20 minutes east of downtown Austin, the Zoo is home to over 500 rare and beautiful wild animals.
The Capital of Texas Zoo is the largest and fastest going  zoo in Central Texas. We have over 400 family members who buy a yearly family membership, so they can visit 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 and 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!
