February is Educator Appreciation Month, and the San Antonio Zoo is thanking Texas teachers by offering them free admission and a huge discount for friends and family.

Active teachers from any school district in Texas employed by an accredited K-12 , private, or parochial school is eligible. Zoo employees just need to see your driver's license, plus one of three items for confirmation: a copy of your teaching certificate, a pay stub from your employer, or a photo ID badge from your school.

Once that's taken care of, you get in free, and up to four of your guests get 50% of the regular cost of admission.

Check out the San Antonio Zoo's website for details and fine print, then head down there ASAP. It's a spectacular zoo, and after dealing with wild kids all day, you may find the wild animals a relief!
