General Game Information

Welcome to the Zoo World walkthrough on Gamezebo. Zoo World is a real time zoo simulation game created by Rockyou! Games and played on Facebook. This walkthrough includes tips and tricks, helpful hints, and a strategy guide to complete Zoo World. This guide will be updated as the game changes in addition to weekly updates located at the lower right side of the screen so check back frequently.

Zoo World

  • Zoo World was created by RockYou! games and was introduced on Facebook games in July of 2009.
  • To play Zoo World you will need to have a Facebook account which you can obtain here http://www.facebook.com
  • To reach the Zoo World application follow this link – http://apps.facebook.com/playzoo/zoo/home.php
  • Zoo World lets you run your own Zoo. You purchase the animals and supplies, hire staff, and place everything exactly where you want it to be. You will hire your Neighbors as your Zoo Keepers and will interact with them as you help each other via gifting and trading animals to make your Zoo fantastic. You will start out with a small amount of money, a few animals and a small piece of land eventually growing your Zoo to the size of ten Islands. Be sure to check in daily to supervise your animals, Collect daily cash bonuses, feed babies, and train your animals.
  • There are currently 42 levels in Zoo World and you must do several tasks to move up through the levels. Most of these levels will require you to purchase expensive items so be sure to visit neighbors and keep your Zoo at optimal profit level by checking your Zoo Report Card Daily.
  • The game allows you to run your own Zoo while using your social network of friends at Facebook to help you build up your number of animals, trees, topiaries, statues and attractions at your Zoo.
  • You are given a small piece of land and a few animals to start. You will set the ticket price for your customers and will be able to adjust conditions at your Zoo to make it more favorable for your visitors. Each time you add another attraction you will have to purchase a Zoo Keeper or a Kiosk Manager.
  • As you play and increase your Zoo’s size you will earn a different amount of profit each day. A day in Zoo World is 5 minutes and you will earn the profit amount every 5 minutes while the game is open! Keeping the game open for a long time will earn you more money to spend on animals and attractions.
  • In Zoo World the trees, topiaries and statues give you money! Click on these items once daily in your Zoo and in your Neighbor’s Zoos and you will earn a lot of money to purchase items for your own Zoo. NOTE – This is known as “shaking” such as Shaking Trees.
  • As your Zoo increases in size you will be responsible to purchase parking lots, restrooms and staff to run these areas.
  • The bigger your Zoo the more money you will make and the more animals, staff, and attractions you can purchase.
  • Your live feed at Facebook is a large part of Zoo World as there are several animals that can only be obtained by rescuing them off of the live feeds when placed there by your Zoo World Friends.
  • Visiting your Neighbor’s Zoo, clicking on their trees and finding the hidden attraction?? will earn you money for your Zoo daily.
  • There is a daily bonus given based on the size of your Zoo. The first time you visit your Zoo each day you will collect this bonus.
  • You can play optional games to earn money such as the Daily Zoo Lotto (See Daily Zoo Lotto Below for details) and the Daily Question of the Day. (See Daily Question of the Day below for more details.)
  • Zoo World allows you to breed animals once you have 2 of that species and each species has either an easy, medium, hard, or expert level of breeding for a fee.
  • There are two types of currency in Zoo World. Zoo World currency called “Zoo Dollars” used to purchase general items in the game and “Wild Life Points” used to purchase special animated attractions and animals for your Zoo.
  • Occasionally you will encounter messages informing you that you have found a lost animal. (See Lost Animals below for more information.) Place these animals on the live feed for your friends to earn money when they help out this lost animal.
  • Every 24 hours you can send your friends 1 free gift which is determined by how far along you are in the game. The further along you are in the game the more free animals will unlock and you can choose to send 1 animal to a large group of friends or you can send a different animal to each friend. (See Gifting Items to Neighbors below for more details.)
  • You may also send limited gifts which are items that you own that you wish to give to a friend.
  • You may also gift collectible items such as trees and statues which will give your friends daily income.
  • As you acquire animals for your Zoo they move into your inventory. Once you visit your Zoo you can place your animal by dragging them to the Zoo and placing them on the land. As you progress you land becomes larger and eventually you are given an additional piece of land up to 10 different land areas for your Zoo.
  • Joining Zoo World’s Fan page will give you access to special fan gifts and updates to the game. You can access their fan page here.
  • Each day Zoo World resets at 12AM PST.

Game Strategies/Tips and Considerations

  • It is best to start out your ticket price very low at $1.00 and change it from time to time to see at which price you have the highest profit. You can change the price at any time. The best time for a price increase is after you add a few animals and the size of your Zoo increases along with your number of visitors.
  • Some of the level requirements are very difficult and expensive. Be sure to do daily visits and click on the trees of your Neighbors for the most profit.
  • When visiting your Neighbors you will want to click on each one of their animals as you try to find the hidden secret bonus. It is best to start with your Neighbors at the very end of your friend list with the smallest Zoos at it will take very little time to search for the bonus money. Once you reach your top level friends they may have up to 10 plots of land and it will take quite a while to search for the hidden bonus but you will have a lot more trees, topiaries and statues you can also click on for coins.
  • The Zoo lottery is available to play as many times as you wish but it will cost you 2 Wildlife dollars to play and you have very low odds of winning a match as you have to choose from over 100 animals. Play this only if you have the money to spare.
  • Trees are a great investment as you will be able to click on them daily to earn extra income. There are several trees that upgrade over time and give even more money.
  • Anytime you see a free topiary on the live feeds be sure to click on it as these will earn you coins if you click on them each day and it really adds up.
  • Saving lost animals, and feeding newly bred animals on the live feed will earn you big bucks. Be sure to click on these links any time you see them.
  • Try to gift your friends a free item each day. People tend to gift you the item you send to them in this game so keep this in mind when sending gifts.
  • Keep an eye on your Zoo Report Card. If you earn all A’s in the categories you can be certain you are obtaining the maximum profit for your Zoo size.
  • Sometimes the level instructions can be confusing. If you are told to buy a certain amount of an item it means you need to buy exactly what it says right at this time. If you needed to purchase 10 Eagles but you already have 8 you still need to purchase 10, not 2 more.
  • Keep the game open at least an hour a day. While the game is open you are earning money every 5 minutes which is a Zoo day. There is a timer at the top of the screen that counts down every 5 minutes and when the time is up you earn the amount listed next to
    “Profit” at the top of the screen.
  • When you have enough Wildlife points purchase a tree that will give you wildlife points each day when you click on it. This way when you have finished all the levels (which award you wildlife points when completed) you will have another way to keep earning them.
  • When you are playing the game be sure to post anything that will give your neighbors a potential profit but keep any post that just announces achievements to a minimum as people will sometimes delete players that clog the feeds with these messages.
  • As soon as you have the money start training your Bald Eagle as this takes a lot of time and you will need it to level up. Make a habit of going to the animal and hitting the “Train” button as soon as you log in to the game.
  • TIP – It is entirely possible that you could complete a level requirement for a future level. For example while collecting 2 of every animal for level 22 you may have collected the required items for another level. It is a really great idea to read over the level requirements listed below and read ahead of where you are to see if you can knock out later objectives.
  • TIP – Changing your ticket price to $1.00 will show you the maximum number of customers you can have in a day. You can use this information when trying to fulfill level requirements.
  • TIP – As you advance test ticket prices with different amounts and note your profit and number of visitors for the day. If you add a large number of animals or attractions be sure to check this number as it changes frequently and once you hit $16.00 per ticket you can just leave it there as it does not fluctuate once you reach that point of the game.
  • NOTE – When your Zoo reaches a value of over 10 Million the value will be truncated and you will not be able to see the last 3 digits so it will seem as if you are not earning additional income. Place your mouse over this area and you will be able to see the total amount you have coming in.
  • TIP – Spiders are not insects. When you need to unlock the insects purchase Butterflies.

Getting Started

  • When you begin the game you are given $50,000 Zoo dollars, a small plot of land with a birds of prey show, 1 breeding house, a Bald Eagle, Lion, and African Elephant to begin your Zoo. These items are already placed on the land.
  • Right away you will notice at the top there are tasks or achievements for you to complete. The tasks are tutorial in nature and once completed you will be at level 3. After level 3 you have to complete 2-4 tasks before you will move up a level. These tasks are expensive and they are not easy so be sure to keep your Zoo as profitable as possible. Once you hit level 3 you will be awarded 1 Wildlife point each time you move up a level.
  • You will be asked to purchase an animal and the only one that will be unlocked for you is the Spotted Hyena which cost $800 Zoo Dollars. (Be sure to just purchase 1 at this time.)
  • Make sure the quantity is set at “1” then click on “Buy” to purchase. You will be asked to confirm. Once you do the Hyena will be placed into your inventory box.
  • Click on “Visit Zoo” where you will be taken to your plot of land. You will notice people walking around your Zoo. The more animals and attractions you place on the land, the more people will visit your Zoo.
  • Drag the Spotted Hyena to an empty spot of land. (See “Placing items in your Zoo” for specific instructions)
  • NOTE – The first time you own a specific animal you will place it on your Zoo. If you buy any additional animals of the same breed they will automatically be added to the quantity and you will not find them in your inventory.
  • Once your Spotted Hyena is placed you will be asked to assign a Zookeeper. (See assigning Zookeeper below)
  • Your next step is to study your report card and do whatever the game suggests you do to in order to increase your rating.
  • Continue to add animals and attractions to your Zoo as long as you can afford them.
  • TIP – Do not buy several of one animal at the beginning of your game as this wastes money and will put you behind. It is better to have several species verses a large quantity of a particular species.
  • Once you learn the various menus and their functions you should be able to maintain the game easily.
  • It is recommended you check in at least once a day to collect your bonuses and visit your Neighbors. Remember the time you keep the game open is profit for you every 5 minutes you will earn the profit of one Zoo Day.
  • Be sure to refer to Game information at the top right often and work to earn all A’s on the Zoo Report Card.

  • Whatever your profit is you will earn that every 5 minutes as long as your game is open and you are supervising your Zoo.
  • While you are visiting friends you are earning money every 5 minutes and earning bonuses for visiting them.
  • If you have the application open but you are not doing anything the game will eventually shut down the Zoo day and a button will appear that says, “Start Zoo Day” so you can’t just leave it running unattended for long periods of time.
  • The Zoo and the main menu areas all have countdown clocks so you can keep an eye on your Zoo Day.

Earning Zoo Dollars and Wildlife Points

Zoo World

Zoo World

  • Zoo Dollars This is the game’s main currency and it can be earned in several ways.
  • Zoo Day – Every 5 minutes you earn whatever amount is listed under “Profit” at the top of the screen. This is determined by the number of animals you have at your Zoo and the ticket price you have set for the day. Once you have the correct ticket price you will be earning the most amount of money available at that time. After you purchase more animals and attractions recheck your ticket price to see if you can raise it.
  • Harvest Updates – These are currently found at the beginning of each Zoo Visit. You will see a money bag on the front gate which you should click on and each day you visit your Zoo you earn a portion of the Harvest which is either a new gate or an upgraded attraction such as the bird show. (see Harvest Updates for more information)
  • Shaking Items/Clickable Bonus items – There are several items in yours and your Neighbor’s Zoos that can be clicked on for cash. (See Tree, Sculptures and Topiary Bonuses. Click on these items once per day to earn a large profit.
  • Locate the hidden Bonuses on Neighbor’s Zoo – Each one of your Neighbors have one animal at their Zoo that is hiding a secret bonus. The amount varies based on how much your Zoo is worth. Click on each animal until you find it. TIP – Start with the neighbors at the very end that are not very far along in the game as you will be able to find their bonuses fast since they have less animals and land at this point. When you get the the advanced players note that the bonus could be on any of up to 10 pieces of land and you may not want to waste your time looking over so much land but note that the bonuses go up in value if you find them on a farm that is worth a large amount of money.
  • Visit your neighbors Bonus – You earn a visiting bonus once per day for each Neighbor. This amount varies based on the value of your Zoo.
  • Change Ticket Prices – Changing Ticket Prices can increase your daily profit considerably. Be sure to check it often and especially after you place a large number of animals or attractions.

  • When you begin the game you will set your ticket price at $1.00 per visitor and this is done by clicking on the ticket booth in the scene.
  • You will see a menu open up where you can change the ticket price from 1 – 16 dollars.

  • Play with this by testing different amounts and always leave it where you have the most profit.
  • You will need to change this whenever you have a significant change to the number of animals or attractions you add to your Zoo.
  • TIP – If you have a level challenge that asks you to have a certain number of visitors in your Zoo in one day you can set the ticket price to 1 dollar and that will tell you the maximum that will come to your Zoo in one day and you can adjust according to what you need.

Visiting Your Zoo

  • You can zoom in or out with the bar at the far right corner of the screen if you wish.

  • NOTE – As your Zoo becomes more valuable it increases in size and eventually you will receive another piece of land to continue your Zoo up to 10 Zoos. You can purchase Maps and change the outer look of the Zoo or you can decorate each land however you wish. Some put only trees on one piece of land to make shaking trees easier. Others divide the zoo land by animals placing all birds on one, Primates on another etc.
  • There is no right or wrong. Design your Zoo the way you want it. Just keep adding to it and keep checking ticket prices to make sure you are making an optimum profit.

Visiting Your Neighbors’ (Zoomates’) Zoos.

Zoo World

Zoo World

  • Your neighbors are a very important part of the game as they will gift you items that can be traded in for more valuable items. (See Collectibles )
  • You will earn a bonus for each Neighbor you visit and you will also be able to find a hidden bonus behind one animal of your Neighbors Zoo. The amount depends on the value of your neighbor’s Zoo. If you are willing to take the time to find all of these bonuses you will be able to afford many animals and will zoom to expert zookeeper in no time.
  • To visit your neighbors you can do 1 of 2 things. When you are visiting your Zoo scroll down to the bottom of the page and you will see your neighbors listed in order from highest scorer to lowest scorer.
  • TIP – Start visiting with the lowest scoring neighbors as they have less animals to look through for the hidden bonuses and mystery gifts.
  • While you are visiting your Neighbor and looking through animals for hidden bonuses be sure to click on all the trees (Shake Trees) to earn coins for them as well. You can click on a tree, sculpture or Topiary once per 24 hours.

Growing and Maintaining your Zoo/Important Considerations

  • As you play the game you will continue to earn money each Zoo day and purchase animals and Attractions for your Zoo.
  • Each time you purchase animals you will need to hire Zookeepers.
  • Each Time you purchase attractions you will need to purchase Maintenance Managers.
  • As your size increases you will be prompted to buy parking lots and restrooms for your Zoo.
  • As you increase in number of animals you will need to purchase animal hospitals and veterinarians to run them.
  • You may want to purchase a Zoo Specialist to help you with your Zoo.
  • If you have a large number of friends a Treasure hunter will allow all hidden treasure to be instantly found when you visit your Neighbors and is a great investment of 80 Wildlife points.
  • Another great investment is any trees that shake out Wildlife points each day. If you are lucky enough to have these they will continue to payout Wildlife Points long after you finish all of the level requirements and no longer earn them by leveling up.

Zoo Diary / Fan Updates

Zoo World

  • If you click on “Home” at the top menu you will be taken to a page that is mainly an informational area.

Visit your Unlimited page to see which animals are available for you to gift in this category. Unlimited gifts do not affect your personal supply of animals. You can give away unlimited animals once every 24 hours for up to 24 of your friends. (Unless you use the tip below in which you can give out many more per day.)
  • Limited Gifts – Limited gifts are those items that you can gift once you own them and if you do gift them you are giving away your own personal supply of animals. Only use these when trading animals with others.
  • Collectibles – These items such as Trees and Topiary Sculptures can only be given once you own them and like the limited gifts if you give one away it will deduct from your supply of these items. Only gift these items if you are trading them with others unless you just want to be nice and give them away for free.

Gift Giving Tip/Increase daily gifting amount.

Receiving Gifts from Neighbors
Zoo World

Zoo World

  • When a Neighbor sends you a gift you will be notified in the “Home” area at Facebook along the left hand side you will see a list of your bookmarked games. Look for Zoo World and if any numbers are next to it that is the number of gifts that are waiting for you to approve and accept.

  • Search for Zoo World and click on the gift links one by one accepting them.
  • NOTE – You have the option of sending a gift to your Neighbor at the point at which you accept it or you can wait and do this later.
  • NOTE – If you accept an item you have never had before it will go into your inventory. If you already own that type of animal it will add to the total in the area you placed that animal in your Zoo.
  • Once you have accepted all of your gifts go back into the game and click on “Visit Zoo” and if you have any items in your inventory a message will appear asking if you wish to place them on your Zoo at this time. Just click yes and place them where you want them.
  • Remember gifts can be given 1 time only every 24 hours to a maximum of 24 friends per day.

Trading Animals in the Forums/Finding New Neighbors for Trading

  • Post a message in the forums such as “Looking for New Zoomates” and give them your Facebook contact information.
  • You will be able to make trades with this player daily until you both have the rare animals you are looking for.
  • You can also go into forums and post a specific thread for a specific animal such as, “Looking for a Poison Dart Frog”
  • A Great site for finding Neighbors and people who want to trade is the Rockyou! apps forum – http://forums.rockyou.com/viewforum.php?f=16&app=zoo

Breeding Zoo World Animals

Zoo World

Zoo World

Zoo World

  • Requirements for Breeding
  • Must have 2 animals of the same species.
  • Must purchase a breeding house and 1 Veterinarian. (You must purchase 15 animals to unlock the Vet)
  • You can breed 3 animals at a time in 1 breeding house.
  • There are different difficulty levels of breeding. Easy, medium, hard, and Expert.
  • Each animal you breed has a level of mastery that must be achieved and these are known as bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum and Diamond.
  • You can now earn Wildlife points for breeding animals and the amount earned is based on the value of your Zoo at the time you breed.
  • When an animal is available for breeding a breed button will appear underneath it along with a cost for breeding the animal listed above it. If you place your mouse on the breed button you can see stats on that particular animal as shown in image above.
  • Click on Breed and your animal will move down into the breeding house area.
  • If you have Growth formula you can apply it to reduce the breed time by 25%.
  • You can also click on a link to post in the live feeds for people to feed your baby animals when they arrive. Your neighbors will get a cash bonus for helping you out.
  • Each Animal takes a specific amount of time to breed. Once you make the purchase there is a count down clock at the site which will show you how much time is left until your babies arrive.
  • Your babies must be fed at certain intervals before they arrive.
  • Be sure to check back daily and click on breed to feed your babies daily.
  • You can also set the game to post if your babies need to be fed when you are away from the game and your Neighbors can feed your babies and earn money for doing so.
  • Some animals can take over 100 hours to breed a baby.
  • The Breeding Nests are located on the Breed page and there are 3 there to begin with. You can unlock up to 5 more by recruiting 20 of your friends as Zoomates for a maximum of 8 animals that can breed at once.
  • Tip – Breeding Specialists only add 1 more nest to your page. They cost 80 Wildlife Points and hardly seem worth that price. It is better to spend those Wildlife points on a Treasure Hunter or Trees that Shake Wildlife Points.
  • Once you complete enough breeding on a particular species finishing all levels of mastery you will become a Breeding Master for that Species and the animal becomes more valuable in your Zoo.
  • NOTE – The game has announced that a new visual version of the breeding area will be coming to the game. You will be able to see babies in their nests soon.
  • TIP – I found a great site that lists all the Wildlife Breeding Points for the Animals. If you are interested in Breeding several animals this chart will be a big help. There are also other very helpful things on his page. Follow this link and click on “Wildlife Point Breeding Charts” – http://ko-kr.facebook.com/pages/Zoo-World-Info/325894617925?v=app_494975…
