DALLAS - Thousands of animal lovers will visit the Dallas Zoo on Thursday during a special summer promotion offering a discount on admission.

During the zoo's regular hours, admission will cost only $1. The zoo also plans to have deals on food, safari tours and camel rides.

The zoo wants patrons to plan ahead and arrive early because large crowds are expected.

To avoid a traffic jam, zoo officials encourage visitors to ride DART's Red Line light rail train right up to the zoo's entrance gate.

The Dallas Zoo is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
