Only the fish and waterfowl can be fed food provided in the machines on the decks. All other animals require special diets provided by the zoo and should not be fed other items. Improper food items can cause illness or death.
Other items (coins, plastic items, etc.) thrown into the animal enclosures can cause injury, illness or death if eaten by the animals.
The black-necked swan pool (originally a fish pool) made of small rocks located near the chilean flamingo exhibit is the only remaining animal exhibit. The fountain is not original.
The Louisiana Habitat Exhibit is built in an area where City Park Blvd. and the infamous "Rock Garden" were. The Zoo salvaged rocks from the garden and have used them in different areas throughout the Zoo.
The "star pond" next to the snake exhibit in Louisiana Habitat were built during the WPA era in the 1930's.
