Topsey Exotic Animal Safari
Drive thru Zoo
Recommended by Kara Cloud
The EMU & Camels stick their heads in the cars & they eat all the food, that's why you better watch out for them! There were also little deer that come up to your car.
You can go through a petting zoo area where there is a gorilla near the entrance. You can walk in and feed the goats and there are baby goats, too.
A Texas 'Drive thru ZOO', a great place & only 31 minutes from Killeen! You drive thru, get to see close up, and feed, many exotic animals! Drive thru Zoos can be found throughout Texas. If you are a photographer this is a great opportunity to get some close up photos! Let the kids sit in the front seat and they will get a great treat. Have a lot of kids? You can drive through as many times as you want for the one price!!
Buy 2 bags of feed each, if you have a nice car you want to throw the food out and away from the car and pull up a bit, so the animal horns don't scratch the car. Also be wary of the Ostriches, Emu's and the Camel - they will put their heads right in the car. The camel is big and aggressive and he knows what he's looking for….the brown sack of feed. You should either hide it before passing him or roll up your windows. He ate Jacob's sack of food - bag and all! We were all laughing so hard we couldn't even roll up the window!

|Jacob Tip: Kids can learn to take pictures with disposable camera's or cheap digital cameras, or even your old phone. (You can start a photo album of their pictures!) For better pictures get a lot closer than you think you should!|
