Animals are what makes a zoo. A zoo is home to animals we may only know from pictures. Apart from these educational purposes a wildlife conservation zoo can offer refuge to otherwise endangered species.
2: Animal Park gives you the chance to playfully experience the
different aspects of a zoo director’s daily
Enclosures: Food, play and cleanliness
You are starting off with building an enclosure to have a place for your animals.
Now you need to consider the three basic needs: food, a clean enclosure and entertainment.
To meet these needs the easiest way, add feeding troughs, water holes, and play equipment to the enclosures. So your animals are happy for longer and you even get an additional experience bonus for all your efforts.
Upjers insider tip: You can hire help to take care of your zoo while you are away: gardeners, workers and zookeepers can be hired for a period of time and will make their rounds and water flowers, collect trash or care for the animals.
Breeding and Collecting
Once your animals have settled in and feel at home, you can think about breeding to expand your zoo. Young animals are very popular with your visitors and increase your zoo’s attractiveness. (Details on breeding, animal levels and the collector’s album can be found in our blog articles on “Animal Levels” and “Collections”.)
To give your animals a bit of privacy you need a shelter. Once you placed one in the animals’ enclosure, you can select the animal from your Breeding center.
Zoo 2: Animal Park: Releasing and Selling animals
Sometimes a newborn animal cannot be placed into its matching enclosure due to size limitations. In such cases you have a couple of options: you can remove one of the older animals from the enclosure by either picking it up and placing it back into your inventory, you might sell an animal to other zoos and get a number of coins from the game, or you could release the animal into the wild and earn a sum of experience points.
Simple tap – or click – on the animal you want to select. Now you see the animal menu with information on the particular animal and some options. Tap on the second icon from the right (the one looking like an enclosure with an open gate) to sell or release this animal.
The Animal Menu – more information and functions
you tapped or clicked on an animal the Animal Menu opens.
In the “speech bubble” you can see the following information
How long until next feeding time
Time until animals needs entertainment
How long until the enclosure needs cleaning
features can be reached using the menu icons (from left to right)
The arrow-button allows you to move and rotate the animal manually
Tap the shopping cart icon to access the in-game shop. You now only see the available matching items for that particular animal.
The icon in the middle puts the animal back into your inventory.
Second from the right you find the “open enclosure” icon, allowing to sell or release the animal.
Next to that, the button showing the gender symbol can be used to change the animal’s sex.
Upjers insider tip: If you have bred a new animal with a higher level and already have a similar animal set in your enclosure, you can change the animal’s sex and use it for further breeding.
We hope this overview helps you in your efforts to make Zoo 2: Animal Park the perfect home for your animals.
