HOUSTON ZOO There are two hot new reasons to visit the Houston Zoo: baby giraffes Mara and Zindzhi, both born this spring. They can already be found in the main yard at the McGovern Giraffe Habitat, just one exotic environment located within the Zoo’s 55 acres inside Hermann Park. The Houston Zoo houses more than 6,000 animals, and receives 2.55 million visitors each year – it’s the second most-visited zoo in the United States! If you want to stay cool during your visit, duck into the Kipp Aquarium, which includes habitats from the coral reefs of the Pacific to the Amazon Basin and the Rift Valley lakes of Africa. It’s home to over 200 species of fresh and saltwater fish, including marine invertebrates. The aquarium also features a rescued sea turtle, a large school of piranhas, a green moray eel, the giant Pacific octopus and the delicate moon jellyfish. www.houstonzoo.org Map Illustration by Sebastian Gomez de la Torre june 17 | L O C A L 7
