While you’re enjoying your visit at Animal World & Snake Farm Zoo, be sure to stop by Two Rivers Mining Co.— the Zoo’s very own gemstone mine!  You’ll be given an incredible opportunity to pan for gemstones, fossils, crystals and shark teeth, among other rocks and minerals. Take a nice break from the crazy Texas weather under our shaded deck, equipped with classic western music and a perfect viewing node to see our bison and longhorn.

Two Rivers Mining Co. guarantees that every “miner” is able to find gemstones— so there’s always smiles all around!
