There are new kids in town — goat kids, to be precise — at this exhibit at the Fort Worth Zoo.
A $2.5 million partnership with Toyota, the Toyota Children's Ranch and Petting Corral features a spacious corral where human kids can meet adorable farm animals such as miniature donkeys, pigs, chickens, longhorn calves, snakes and other species with Texas ties. Brush shaggy coats, scratch floppy ears and pose with particularly photogenic friends while learning about responsible animal husbandry and conservation.
Located in the zoo's Texas Wild area, the new exhibit is included with regular admission and open during normal zoo hours. Hop on the Yellow Rose Express Train ($3, one-way) to shuttle between Texas Wild and the Safari Depot to take in all that the nationally ranked zoo has to offer.
Daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 1989 Colonial Parkway, Fort Worth. $16, $12 for children 3-12 and senior citizens 65 and up, free for ages 2 and under, $5 per vehicle for parking. Half-price admission on Wednesdays. fortworthzoo.org.
