Your goal in Zoo-Opolis is to collect a wide variety of creatures,
raise their levels, raise your zoo rating, and create a fun and exciting zoo. An
easy way to raise your species count early on is by trading with friends. Since
everyone can only choose one of three starter creatures, it’s likely that you
already have something your friends don’t! So breed your starters early and
you’ll have something to trade with your friends and give your zoo rating an
early boost! In general, it is good to breed as much as possible. It doesn’t
cost anything to initiate a breeding project, but you can sell or trade the
creature for coins or a valuable creature.
Another way to help yourself is to check back often. Your bank can only hold
so many coins, so checking in on your zoo regularly ensures you make as much
profit as possible. Raising your zoo rating will make your bank fill up
How do I get more coins?
Money is obtained a few different ways.
Breeding creatures and selling them for money, collecting level-up bonuses, and
cashing out from your zoo revenue. You can also purchase additional coins via
How do I get more diamonds?
You will start with ten diamonds. After
that, you will get one more diamond each time you level up. The main way to get
diamonds though, is by purchasing them via Facebook.
How do I get experience?
Experience is gained from buying anything except
enclosures, terrains, and avatar items. It is also gained from feeding
creatures, and when you either collect or sell a newborn creature.
How do I feed creatures?
Feeding creatures if free, and can be done
through feed mode or via the creature cards. Feed mode is entered through the
toolbox menu. Creatures that are hungry will have a red outline, creatures that
are full will be outlined in green. The bar over the creature will indicate how
long until its hunger points reach zero. This means they are no longer getting
happiness from food, and for most creatures that puts them in an unhappy state.
Because creatures gain more experience when they are happy, it’s best to avoid
waiting until the hunger bar reaches zero.
You can also feed creatures via
their cards- both in page view and the individual cards. When the feed icon is
lit up, the creature is hungry. Greyed out means it is full.
How do I give items to my creatures?
You can give items either via
creature cards or the inventory. While in the card viewer, either page view or
individual cards, clicking the “Give” icon will bring up the inventory screen,
showing only items compatible with that creature. Likewise, clicking “Give” on
the item from the inventory screen will bring up the card viewer showing only
creatures which like that item. Thus, it is impossible to give an item to a
creature that isn’t interested in it. Additionally, you cannot give items to
creatures after their item happiness is full. This ensures that your items will
never be wasted!
How do I breed creatures?
To breed creatures, you must have male and
female in the same enclosure. They cannot be unhappy, and they must have a
certain amount of space. To see if their enclosure is big enough, look at the
back of the creature card. The bar for enclosure size must be in the green for
creatures to breed.
How do I level up my creatures?
Creatures gain experience through
feeding. The happier they are, the more experience they gain with each feeding
and the faster they’ll level up.
How does zoo rating work?
Zoo rating is based on three factors. The
first is species count- the more species you have, the better. The second is the
average level of your creatures. Having more higher level creatures will raise
your rating. The third is the happiness. This is based on the minimum happiness
in your zoo.
What determines a creature’s happiness?
There are five factors that
determine a creatures happiness- hunger, enclosure size, social, enclosure
items, and giftable items.
Feeding your creatures whenever you check on your zoo will ensure
that their hunger points stay high.
This refers to how much space a creature needs to be
happy. This can be checked on the back of the creature’s card. It is determined
by how many tiles the enclosure takes up and how many creatures are in that
enclosure. Adding a third creature to an enclosure big enough for two can
decrease the happiness of all three creatures, unless you expand the enclosure.
How many creatures are in the enclosure. Some creatures need
companionship or groups to be happy. Others get upset if they have to share an
enclosure with too many creatures, no matter how big said enclosure is. This
stat can also be checked on the back of a creature’s card.
These can be found on the Enc. Items tab of the store.
They are enrichment items that creatures enjoy using, such as housing and toys.
Enclosure items will raise the happiness of all creatures in that enclosure
(provided it is compatible with that species), but placing more than one of the
same type of enclosure item will have no additional effect.
These are consumable items that you can gift to
individual creatures. Creatures can receive a limited amount of happiness from
these items, and that amount varies depending on the species. Each day, their
happiness from gift items will go down. Getting them to maximum happiness points
from giftables will usually take multiple items. After that, their points will
slowly decrease each day. To keep them maxed out, it will be necessary to give
them another item each day.
Most creatures do not require you to max all of these numbers. Generally, it
is good to keep the creature well-fed at least, as feeding gives both you and
the creature experience. If a creature is unhappy, their card will tell you what
they are lacking, and checking the back of the card will give you more
