Meet the creatures native to Texas!
The Farish Hall features realistic displays of alligators, river otters, mountain lions, and other animals that can be found in our state, as well as some that have vanished over time. A four-screen video wall provides a dramatic overview of the seven biotic provinces within Texas, allowing visitors to learn more about the plants, animals, and topography of these unique regions. Our interactive computer component will challenge you to sharpen your knowledge of Texas wildlife, including endangered species.
