The Caldwell Zoo has many upcoming events for members and non-members. Yes, the Tyler Zoo is charging admission now but it is well worth the money. You will see white tigers, cheetahs, penguins, giraffes, elephants, and many other amazing animals. There is an incredible walk-in bird cage that will catch everyone’s attention. You can buy a seed stick for a dollar and watch as birds fly all around and land on you.

The Caldwell Zoo feeds more than 2,000 animals special diets. Every week they feed the animals 100 pounds, 10 cases of fresh greens, 850 pounds of fruits and veggies, 325 pounds of fish, 480 rats and mice, 4,500 crickets, 5,250 worms (yuck), and 18 dozen eggs. In addition to all of these animal feedings the zoo staff grows nearly all of their plants on the grounds. This includes around 15,000 beautiful plants. The spectacular plants and God’s wonderful creatures are sure to take your breath away at the Tyler, TX Caldwell Zoo.
