Here’s your real disclaimer: some of the pictures included here are too cute for words.
The Dallas Zoo has four new reasons for you to come visit, but remember to bring a gift.
There must be something in the water at the Dallas Zoo. The first baby penguin born at the Dallas Zoo, the baby African penguin was born to Tazo and Tulip April 15. But don’t get ready to party with this penguin right yet, as the new penguin family is living offsite at the Don Glendenning Penguin Cove. But as soon as this yet-to-be-named bird gets his or her feathers to be able to swim at the zoo, you’ll be invited to the welcome home event.
If your”Oh, that’s so Cute” meter hasn’t already started to move off the charts, it will with this “tall tale.” Like the Royal family’s recent birth watch, the Animal Planet kept us all connected the world was able to welcome this sweet edition to the Dallas Zoo family via live stream on April 10. Days later, 50,000 fans casted their vote to name the baby Kipenzi, which is Swahili for loved one. Now you say hello personally to Kipenzi and mother, Katie at the zoo.
Born March 20 at the Dallas Zoo, this baby blue-eyed ocelot is considered only one of maybe 50 left of the native-Texas species. Like humans this sweetie’s eyes will change from this cobalt blue to a dark brown and joins his father Joaquin and his mother Milagre in the ocelot habitat with a fellow bobcat.
While these little babies are too cute, you can’t call anything cute or little about the arrival of the newest exhibit at the Dallas Zoo. The “Giants of Jurrasic,” open now until Sept. 7, features more than 25 dinosaurs, a special DinoSOAR wildlife show, the theater experience of Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo Live, and more. Free with zoo admission, your dinosaur lover will be able to get hands-on learning about dinosaurs in a whole new way. Get the details on the exhibit and daily hours here.
Share your personal congratulations to these fine mamas and make your kids think you’re the coolest parent ever with a day at the Dallas Zoo!
