We are allowed to show our crowds of visitors over 70 different animals in Planet Zoo. Here is the full list of Planet Zoo Animals from each Continent.
Animals are to a zoo what the roller coaster is to an amusement park. While we lured visitors to our park with breakneck loops in Planet Coaster, our most exotic and beautiful four-legged friends take on this task in Planet Zoo. There are a total of 76 different animals in the release version of the new game from Frontier Development.
We have summarized for you which animals these are exactly. This always includes the animals at the top that were submitted with the paid DLCs. There is also speculation as to which species may be added over time.
All Animals in Planet Zoo by Continent
In Planet Zoo there are lots of Animals from the African as well as the Indian Continent. There are free-range mammals, for which we will have to build open enclosures, as well as smaller animals such as insects and reptiles. Smaller animals do not have their own enclosures but are displayed in vivariums. That’s why we’ve divided this list into vivariums and enclosures. You can find the DLC animals in a separate paragraph.

These animals could still come
That’s a lot of animals in Planet Zoo from different continents. A few zoo classics are still missing. In the run-up to the event, many fans expressed their wishes as to what they hoped for from possible DLC animals. Including animals from certain regions and completely different species.
For example, there are currently no real aquariums in Planet Zoo. Anyone expecting sea creatures such as dolphins, schools of fish or even whales must hope for an expansion. According to official information, such a DLC is not yet planned.
Finally, a few animal lovers are annoyed about the small selection of birds. We can only exhibit large, flightless poultry at the moment. So flamingos, ostriches and peacocks. Here, too, there has not yet been any DLC confirmation from the developers to introduce cages for colorful birds of paradise, for example.
