Gladys Porter Zoo
Built on an old channel of the Rio Grande River, this 31 acre zoological preserve features over 250 species and subspecies of tropical and neo-tropical plants, as well as over 1,600 animals that represent 464 species, 47 of which are endangered. All of the animals live in open exhibits surrounded by natural flowing waterways.
We were on a family vacation in Brownsville. In between trips to South Padre Island we decided to take a day off from the water. We decided to take our daughters to the Gladys Porter Zoo. It was horrible. The zoo is not kept up well, we saw plastic drink containers in the water, animal areas not cleaned well and my daughter kept pointing to spider webs. I had been there before when I lived in McAllen and I don't remember it being so unkept. We had more fun at the Children's Museum than the zoo. Such a waste of money. My daughter's didn't notice all the bad things like I did. I am so lucky we have one of the best zoos in Texas...Fort Worth Zoo rocks!
On March 21st my family and I visisted Gladys Porter Zoo for the Dinosaur Exhibit. We all had a splendid time. The Dinosaur theme was very creative and a lot of fun, my kids had a blast. When entering they have robotic dinosaurs, mounted faces of a T-rex and Three horn on the wall, some facts about different species of dinosaurs, and a coloring center to draw kids favorite dinosaur. The best thing about this trip to the zoo is the learning experience about all the animals they have.
MY DAUGHTER AND I WENT ON HOLIDAY TO BROWNSVILLE AND ONE SUNDAY WHILST THERE WE DECIDED TO VISIT GLADYS PORTER ZOO. IT WAS MARVELLOUS!
WATCHING THE GORILLAS WAS A LOT OF FUN! THE
FLAMINGOS WERE A LOT SMALLER THAN I EXPECTED,BUT SO COLOURFUL WITH THEIR PINKY- RED FEATHERS.
AND SOME OF THE MONKEYS.... WELL,IT GOES WITHOUT SAYING HOW FUNNY THEY WERE!
WE WOULD LIKE TO VISIT BROWNSVILLE AGAIN,THERE'S A LOT MORE TO SEE.THANK YOU.

It was very beautiful!!They have it so clean and it was very fun.I would recomend to others and just because Brownsville is a small city,doesn't mean it has a small zoo.It's better than the Houston Zoo!!And it was a good waste of money.
