Dream Zoo - Tips and Tricks (not for add me codes)

Have some tips or tricks to share about Dream Zoo? Post em here.

Dream Zoo Tips and Tricks:

1. As soon as you can, spend the money for a second stork. More babies for your zoo, means more cash.

2. You begin the game with the Plains animals. Rhinos, though costing more, will yield more cash. Once you have your rhinos, add Plains expansions to their exhibit to increase there % of coin yield. You can do this with any animal, but early in the game, rhinos will be your best bet.

3. To find fallen fruit easier, zoom in on one animal. All the background clutter will disappear, revealing fruit. Or better yet, select the Move Tool. You will see fruit more easily and be able to pick it up.

4. Add lots of neighbors and visit them to get more hearts. See this thread for people looking for neighbors


Help your neighbors get babies faster by clicking on the baby cradles when they are breeding their pairs. It's the easiest way to get a heart for your zoo. Also click on any expansions under construction. Washing animals is the second easy way to get a heart. Feeding is the hardest way to get a heart. Be sure to Send Gifts daily under the Friend menu to get gifts sent back to you.

The fastest way to get hearts from a friend’s zoo is by tapping the construction site (the expansion under construction) if any. You can get 4 by tapping 4 times.

You can add animals and land expansions on top of construction sites. You do not have to wait for it to finish building.

You can also click on the move button in the menu. If you do that all the animals disappear and you are able to click on all the fruit, while you are in the move section.

HELP! After moving a bunch of stuff around, my animals have disappeared. Their land and signs are still there, but the animals are gone. And when I try to go to the wild animal store and buy new ones it says I must upgrade my animals to champions before starting a new family. It's even giving me notifications about my animals.

Help Babies - Patience & Appreciation

Helping babies does not cost anything. It is free (something I didn't know initially). When you help a baby you accelerate its birth time. I greatly appreciate when others do this for me so I always do it for others. This means a tad of patience on your part though.

Before washing or feeding, I scan the zoo to find the baby help signs. Also, both the animal symbol and the cradle must be in view for you to accelerate. If the animals are in the way, you can actually coax them to move by touching them or tapping on the help spot. Sometimes animals like the elephants take a bit of coaxing but it's also kinda fun.

With the new dinosaurs, they are so large they often cover the cradles but each has a position they can get in to free the space. Please be kind and help the babies.

Helping the Babies

Consider constructing a "maternity ward" area near the dock/entrance area of your zoo to make the babies easy to find for your visitors. I too will scan other zoos in order to help the babies but sometimes with the larger zoos it can be difficult to locate them all.

Champion animals

Hi, there.
I have only been playing Dream Zoo for about a week. I have bred two champion zebras and now have three. It says my newest zebra is ready to start a family, but I cannot find any options to retire or upgrade zebra 1 or 2. Any ideas?
