It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at the Houston Zoo.

We're getting a sneak peek at the two million twinkling LEDs that appear in "Zoo Lights" from a viewer.

Visitors can see the zoo transformed into a winter wonderland while enjoying a variety of holiday experiences, like hot chocolate, a Texas-themed light display, a Holiday Train Village, Enchanted Forest and an appearance by Candy, the interactive talking zebra.

The Houston Christmas tradition is now in its sixth year and begins Saturday, running through January 14.
