This Indoor Rainforest In Texas Makes For A Wild Adventure Year-Round
There are surprisingly quite a few places where you can see exotic animals in Texas, but all are unmatched by the number and diversity of the creatures at Moody Gardens. The rainforest pyramid is home to some of the world’s most unique flora and fauna, many of which are endangered species. You’ll be hard pressed to find a better rainforest replica in the entire country.
