Introduce eight amazing new animals to your zoo with the North America Animal Pack! Featuring iconic species highly requested by the community, the North America Animal Pack brings a diverse assortment of growling, swimming, and cantering additions, complete with five new enrichment items to help them feel at home. The North America Animal Pack also comes with one new timed scenario to challenge your zoo-managing skills at the foothills of the famous Blue Ridge Mountains.
EIGHT ICONIC NORTH AMERICAN ANIMALS
Within the North America Animal Pack you’ll find the moose, cougar, California sea lion, North American beaver, American alligator, black-tailed prairie dog, arctic fox, and American bullfrog. This makes a total of seven habitat animals and one exhibit animal. From the towering moose, Planet Zoo’s largest and heaviest species of deer, to the tiny prairie dog, you can enthral your guests with a range of fascinating North American wildlife.
Visitors will love watching every new animal display unique behaviours. For instance, the arctic fox, who has the lowest temperature tolerance in the game, hunts by adorably diving face-first into the snow, just as it does in the wild. California sea lions call out with their distinctive bark, and shake their blubbery folds. Diminutive prairie dogs, meanwhile, the smallest adult animals you’ll find throughout Planet Zoo, stand tall in a sentinel pose before yipping and leaping around.
MASTER A NEW TIMED SCENARIO
Welcome to Jameson Wildlife Park! Nestled within the lakes at the foot of the famous Blue Ridge Mountains, this newly developed attraction invites you to take over management duties. You’ll expand the zoo by clearing terrain in order to weave new habitats into the landscape, working around marshy wetland and letting your creativity flow while providing animals large, naturalistic habitats in which to thrive.
As well as spearheading planning and construction, you’ll endeavour to increase species diversity by incorporating the North America Animal Pack’s additions. Help these animals get settled in lovingly designed habitats, educate guests on their needs, and develop successful breeding programs to continue the zoo’s prosperity into the future.
Planet Zoo is now available on Windows PC via Steam.
