Plan a fun outing to the Bayou Wildlife Zoo in Alvin, Texas, where your kids can pet a variety of exotic animals and go on pony rides. Our location holds more than 400 different zoo animals, reptiles and birds from 60 different species. We also have endangered and threatened animal species in our zoo, including:
Pere David's Deer
Indian Black Buck Antelope (Threatened)
Our petting zoo is home to all types of animals including Potbelly pigs, Pygmy goats, Boer goats, and even some baby animals. Walk right in and pet them, or purchase a bucket of food to feed them. Your kids are sure to love interacting so closely with these adorable creatures.
Pony Rides & Children's Barn Yard Area
We welcome all kids weighing less than 90 pounds to participate in a pony ride. One of our staff members will lead your child on a medium-sized pony for a three-minute walk around the fence in our riding area. After a pony ride, take a look at our Children's Barn Yard area. There you'll find many interesting animals like the muntjac deer, the smallest deer species from China. These deer are really tiny and very cute to behold. We also have javelinas, blue macaws, peacocks, and cavies, the third largest rodent in the world. This area also has basketball nets and a volleyball area for your kids to enjoy.
