Ellen Trout Zoo – April 6, 2016


This week, we took off for Lufkin, TX to visit the Ellen Trout Zoo, home to the biggest ostentation of peacocks I have ever seen running free through the grounds. The kids had fun checking out all the different areas of the zoo – one of the best things about this zoo is that it’s a breeding zoo, so the enclosures are small, which means that the animals are REALLY close and have few hiding places. Thankfully, this zoo is only a temporary stop for most of the animals there until they go back to their home zoos after recovering from pregnancy and birth.

If you get a chance, check them out – Lufkin is about the same distance travel-wise as Houston, it’s smaller, so you can definitely see everything in one day, and it’s shady (perfect for the upcoming summer heat)!
