Your Capybara Adventure Awaits This Spring Break in Texas!


When visiting Animal World and Snake Farm Zoo during Spring Break in Texas, don’t miss the chance to meet the capybaras, South America’s most social herbivore! Here are some fascinating facts about our charismatic Capys named Enzo and Kiwi:


  • Capybaras are excellent swimmers and can stay submerged for up to five minutes.
  • They are highly social animals and live in large groups.
  • Capybaras communicate through a variety of vocalizations, including barks, whistles, and purrs.
  • Despite their size, capybaras are herbivores, feeding on grasses and aquatic plants.
  • Their unique webbed feet make them well-adapted for life in and around water, allowing them to move swiftly and gracefully.
  • They create and foster symbiotic relationships with birds. Their avian friends are glad to consume the flies and other insects that like to bug Capybaras. In return for the tasty meals, birds help Capybaras remain well-groomed and free from pests.
  • Even with their stocky frame, Capybaras are capable of reaching up to 35 kilometers an hour. That’s as fast as a horse!
  • Capybaras are creative when it comes to staying cool in the hot Amazonian sun. They are often found sleeping in rivers and marshes to help regulate their temperature.

Enjoy Animal Enrichment Activities! Featuring the Burmese Python


Step into the realm of reptiles and encounter our magnificent Burmese Python Simon during your Spring Break 2024 adventure. Here are some titillating facts about these impressive serpents:


  • Burmese pythons are among the largest snake species in the world, capable of reaching lengths exceeding 20 feet and weighing up to 200 pounds.
  • They are expert ambush predators, relying on their camouflage and patience to capture prey.
  • Burmese pythons possess heat-sensing pits along their upper lip, enabling them to detect warm-blooded animals in their vicinity.
  • Despite their fearsome reputation, Burmese pythons are generally docile and are often kept as pets in captivity.
  • These serpents are best known for how they catch and eat their food. First, the snake uses its sharp rearward-pointing teeth to seize prey.  Then, the python coils its body around the animal’s chest. Finally, it squeezes its prey a little tighter with each exhale until the victim’s circulatory system shuts down.
  • Stretchy ligaments in their jaws allow them to swallow animals up to five times as wide as their head!
  • Exceptionally large pythons may search for larger food items like pigs or goats. Pythons have even been known to have attacked and eaten alligators!

Experience Your Wildest Adventure With A Lemur Encounter


Lemurs, the Masters of Adaptation. During Spring Break San Antonio 2024  embark on a journey with Animal World and Snake Farm Zoo to encounter the enchanting lemurs, Madagascar’s most iconic primates. Here are some captivating facts about these fascinating creatures:

  • Lemurs are found only on the island of Madagascar and are considered one of the most endangered groups of mammals in the world.
  • They are highly adaptable and occupy a wide range of habitats, from dense rainforests to arid shrublands.
  • Lemurs are known for their distinctive vocalizations, including loud calls and intricate vocal exchanges.
  • Many lemur species exhibit unique social structures, with some living in matriarchal societies led by dominant females.
  • Conservation efforts are crucial for protecting lemurs and their habitats; about 94% of all lemur species have a threatened status on the IUCN Red List.
  • Although they are primates like us, they are not as closely related to people as Chimpanzees or other Apes.
  • These primates come in all shapes and sizes. The smallest living lemur is the pygmy mouse lemur, which is less than 2.5 inches (6 centimeters) from head to toe—although its tail adds another 5 inches. The largest living lemur is the indri, which can stand as tall as 2.5 feet (0.75 meters) in adulthood.
