Winter Weather Update
It is cold this time of year! The Amarillo Zoo has established temperature guidelines for each species. The temperature may affect which exhibits you are able to see. Some animals may not be let out of their holding shelter if the temperature is too cold. Sometimes animals are given access to their outdoor exhibit, but may choose to stay inside due to the temperature. Please keep this in mind as you visit the Amarillo Zoo. Please contact us if you have any questions!
