Mainly located in the city of Lufkin, the Ellen Trout Zoo was established in 1967. Although a comparatively small zoo, it is home to a wide range of animals including jaguar, hippopotamus, Bali mynah, white rhinoceros, Maasai giraffe and Saki monkeys, to name a few. Russell’s viper, Galapagos tortoise, Fly River turtle and the rare Malayan tapir are some more attractions. Apart from maintaining and preserving the animal and bird species, the zoo also offers educational programs to various schools covering an array of wildlife and environmental topics. The elegant Solomon Island Eclectus parrot and the atypical Chilean flamingos are great additions to the zoo that have visitors raving.
