Add animals to your zoo that went extinct hundreds of years ago.

If you are looking for a game that features animals from a typical zoo as well as animals that you have probably never seen except for inside a museum, then consider Zoo Tycoon. This is an addition to the original game that gives you animals like dinosaurs and wooly mammoths. Some of the animals require special attention so that they are taken care of properly. There are also animals that hatch from eggs. Scientists help to care for the dinosaurs, because they need care that the zoo attendants cant always provide.

When playing with the extinct animals, it is best to keep the dangerous ones separate from the rest of the park, because some of them, such as the dinosaurs, can cause a lot of damage. There are over 30 extinct animals that you have to choose from, and each category of animal comes with its own decorations and attractions. These include restaurants, gift shops, food carts and pathways for guests to walk in the zoo.

One of the more adorable animals is the dodo bird. Another animal that some might find fascinating is the saber-toothed cat. Something that will keep you busy during the game is searching for fossils. This makes the land of extinction even more realistic. Scientists work in a research lab to discover more animals and try to maintain the lives of those that are in the zoo. Some of the decorations to choose from include tar pits, glaciers and even a caveman. After the animals have been added, you can cure diseases and try to catch a dinosaur or two if they escape.
