Conclusion

This info may be helpful, considering that the game takes heavy account of using the continent and biome of origin to factor in welfare stats. Of course, it is fun and challenging placing animals on foreign continents, but if you want a thematic build this should make it easier to focus on compatible animals. Of course, this will also allow you to focus on boosting your welfare stats from the start.

Either way… have fun with your Planet Zoo!

Notes:

  • Many animals appear in multiple categories.
  • I made separate sections even in cases of only one animal for a biome. I am sure Frontier will add more animals in the future.
  • I ignored the Exhibit animals because they are fine on any map and the welfare stats do not work the same way for them.
