       Well this is my 5th or 6th FAQ so I'll try to make it my best ever, it is 
    just a guide to animals really, but that surly is something helpful for a zoo 
    game, if you have anything you think I should know, please email me (after you 
    have read "Email Policy.") Thanks for reading. I have included as much 
    information as I could, but I don't know everything (yet!) so there may be one 
    or two mistakes.

        previous use of Word) and here is that new FAQ, which contains 10 times 
        more information, in just 2 times the space, while being 5 times clearer 
        to read and 7 times better overall (please note this figures are totaly
        made up!) The new FAQ contains a lot of the animal information previously
        in my Zoo Tycoon FAQ/Walkthrough, but now here. That FAQ too has undergone
        a complete makeover.

    -=Notes=-
    
    o In the cost calculations I have not left any spare funds for: rocks, 
      elevations, zookeepers, exibit windows, or any other miscellanous expense,
      it is therfore advisable to add an amount of $1,000 in case of unexpected 
      costs arising from the stated. I have the updated figure in brackets beside
      the totals.
    o In the cost calculations I have not left room for breeding, so exibit 
      expansion costs may arise in later gameplay, it is strongly advised that you 
      sell any offspring as it generates important income, unless the mother has 
      become attached and morel lose would result.
    o The fences I have chosen in my cost calculations are merely recomendations, 
      they are by no means the best in all cases.
    
    -=African Buffalo=-
    
    Cost: $1,200
    Favorite Plant/Tree: Tall Grass
    Shelter: Stable
    Toys: NONE
    Terrain: 85% savannah grass, 6% freshwater, 6% sand, 3% dirt.
    Minimum Exhibit Size: 6x6 squares.
    Recommended Exhibit Size: 6x10 squares.
    Crowd Appeal: Medium
    My Overall Rating: 7/10 - but reduced latter in game if you get more exotic 
                              animals.
    My Notes: As the passage from the zookeeper states, these animals live in 
              large herds, so it is advisable that you give them loads of space,
              the above exibit size is for 2 or 3 animals, so my worked example is
              far bigger.
    Exibit Cost Calculation: - for 6 animals in nice exibit:
    
    o Animal: African Buffalo
      Cost: $1,200 x 6 = $7,200
    
    o Fence: Chain Link Fence
      Cost: $70 x 10 x 10 (exibit size) = $7,000
    
    o Terrain: Savannah grass (85%), freshwater (6%), sand (6%) and dirt (3%).
      Cost: Total squares 100 (10 x 10)
            Savannah = 100 x 0.85 = 85 = 85 x $70 = $5,950
            Freshwater = 100 x 0.6 = 6 = 6 x $30 = $0,180
            Sand = 100 x 0.6 = 6 = 6 x $30 = $0,180
            Dirt = 100 x 0.3 = 3 = 3 x $20 = $0,060
            Total = $5,950 + $0,180 + $0,180 + $0,060 = $6,370
    
    o Trees: Baobab Tree, Unbrella Thorn Tree, Yellow Fever Tree, Thorn Acacia 
             Tree, Acacia caffra Tree, Tall Grass (Favorite), Thorn Bush.
      Cost: Baobab Tree = 2 x $300 = $600
            Unbrella Thorn Tree = 1 x $210 = $210
            Yellow Fever Tree = 1 x $175 = $175
            Thorn Acacia Tree = 1 x $150 = $150
            Tall Grass = 5 x $75 = $375
            Thorn Bush = 3 x $20 = $60
            Total = $600 + $210 + $175 + $150 + $375 + $60 = $1,570

    Zoo Keepers information: "The African, or Cape, Buffalo is the only African 
     species of the Large international Bovidae family, which includes the 
     American Bison and European domesticated Cattle."
       "The native habitat of the African Buffalo is the savannah grass of central
     and southern Africa. Although these animals can survive under all sorts of 
     conditions found within this region, there ideal habitat is an open area 
     containing high grassy thickets and the occasional tree for cover, with 
     access to a permanent supply of water and mud for wallowing. The buffalo 
     grazes on a wide assortment of savannah grasses. Its long, prehensile tongue 
     allows it to consume the taller, coarse grass usually avoided by other herd 
     animals."
       "The african buffalo roams in large herds. Each herd has an established 
     range that rarely overlaps the ranges of other herds. The social behavior
     among buffalo, is highly coopartive; for instance, if a herd crosses into a
     solitary bull's territary, that bull will lead the herd through its land, and
     than allow the next bull to take over at the boundary. At rest, related 
     animals, within a herd will often lie with there backs touching or with chins
     propped on each other's backs. In the open spaces of the African savannah,
     buffalo herds can often contain 500 to 2500 individuals. Because of there 
     relitivly large size and need for space thy are kept in much smaller groups 
     in captivity."
       "African buffalos tend to be quiet animals, except for grunts and bellows 
     during the mating season. On the whole, the African buffalo is rather placid 
     except for when it is injured or threatened. When threatened, the buffalo 
     will aggressivly shake its head, presenting its formidable horns to the 
     opponent. An angry buffalo will also stamp its feet and charge. In a herd, 
     this behavior is contagious; one enraged buffalo can quickly upset the other 
     animals. With poor eyesight and hearing, these animals depend greatly an 
     there keen sense of smell, which can detect a predator 800 feet away."
       "Although adult buffalo, weighing in at 1,000 pound, are generaly safe from
     attack, they will vigorously protect there young, from such predators as 
     lions and hyenas. On occasion, there thick hides enable them to escape, 
     through dense thornbushs, that would deter most animals. At a speed of up to 
     35mph, buffalo are capable of outrunning a pursueing lion, but can be 
     ambushed in spite of this since it is difficult for them to get up to this 
     speed quickly. Only lions are capable of bringing down a healthy adult 
     buffalo, and even then they run a considerable risk of being treed, gored or 
     trampled by an enraged herd."
    
    -=African Elephant=-
    
    Cost: $2,500
    Favorite Plant/Tree: Baobab
    Shelter: Elephant Shelter
    Toys: Swinging log
    Terrain: 60% savannah grass, 20% freshwater, 10% sand, 10% dirt.
    Minimum Exhibit Size: 10x10 squares.
    Recommended Exhibit Size: 12x12 squares.
    Crowd Appeal: Very high.
    My Overall Rating: 6/10 - higher if you have the money.
    My Notes: The African Elephant is a quiet animal that does noting - except eat,
              but yet crowds love them, so when you start earning some money try to 
              add a few to your zoo. In my worked example I have left no room for
              offspring so you are best to sell offspring when you get any to avoid
              exibit overcrowding.
    Exibit Cost Calculation: - for 4 animals in nice exibit:
    
    o Animal: African Elephant
      Cost: $2,500 x 4 = $10,000
    
    o Fence: Chain Link Fence

    o Terrain: Savannah grass (60%), freshwater (20%), sand (10%) and dirt (10%).
      Cost: Total squares 144 (12 x 12)
            Savannah = 144 x 0.60 = 86 (86.4) = 86 x $70 = $6,020
            Freshwater = 144 x 0.20 = 29 (28.8) = 29 x $30 = $0,870
            Sand = 144 x 0.10 = 14 (14.4) = 14 x $30 = $0,420
            Dirt = 144 x 0.10 = 14 (14.4) = 14 x $20 = $0,280
            One remaining square goes to majority (savannah) = $0,070
            Total = $6,020 + $0,870 + $0,420 + $0,280 + $0,070 = $7,660

    Zoo Keepers information: "The native habitat of the elephant is the open
      savannah of central and southern Africa. In the wild, elephants occupy a 
      wide geographic range, often traveling many miles in a single day. In 
      captivity, elephants need relitively large exibits to live and move about. 
      The more elephants the more space they need. Elephants are generaly found 
      in regions containing wide swaths of tall grasses broken by the occasional 
      stands of acacias and the large African Baobob tree, which the elephants 
      like to use for shade. Areas of dirt and sand near waterholes form cool 
      mud holes for the elephants to wallow in, and the occasional rock provides 
      a perfect scratching post for removing mud."
        "Elephants are herbivores, eating various grasses, hays and even trees. 
      They eat ferquently which is not surprising, given there enormous size. 
      There long flexible trunks, allow them to reach down to pull up tall 
      grasses as well as to reach up to pull down tasty branchs inaccessible even 
      to a giraffe. In captivity they are fed a varity of foods, including hay, 
      brouse (e.g. acicia, corn stalks, bamboo, mulberry, and fisus) apples, 
      bananas, carrots, yam, barn, and herbivore pellets."
        "Elephants are social animals. Although they are often found in groups of
      up to 25 in the wild, keeping great numbers of elephants in a zoo would tax
      even the wealtiest zoos. In captivity, groups of two to six individuals are
      more conmmon. Elephants can quickly become upset when they don't have enough
      contact of there own kind. An angry or upset elephant will make its familier 
      loud turmpeting sound. There highly social nature means that one angry 
      elephant can upset the rest of the herd."
        "Elephants are hardy animals that don't often get sick. When they do there
      strong constitutions enable them to weather the illness a relitivly long 
      time before it becomes life-threatening. Elephants reproduce poorly in 
      captivity."
        "As the largest land mammels in the world, elephants can afford to feel
      relitively safe in the wild, at least from other animals. In general 
      elephants only tolerate there own kind. While they have nothing to fear from
      even the largest predators, they still become very uneasy when placed in 
      close proximity of these animals. Even non-predatory buffalo and rhino can 
      make elephants uncomfortable."
    
    -=American Bighorn Sheep=-

    Minimum Exhibit Size: 7x7 squares.
    Recommended Exhibit Size: 8x8 squares.
    Crowd Appeal: Low
    My Overall Rating: 6/10 - but not a bad animal.
    My Notes: The American Bighorn Sheep is a highland animal that likes rocky
              ground, they are one of the cheapest animals but not very popular.
    Exibit Cost Calculation: - for 8 animals in nice exibit:

    Zoo Keepers information: "American Bighorn Sheep posesses massive, brown-
      spriled horns and beautiful brown fur. These animals live in the western 
      mountains of North America, ranging from southern Canada all the way to 
      northern Mexico. Although bighorn sheep are well-adapted to a range of 
      elevations and tempeatures, they prefer steep rocky regions and are 
      attracted by open alpine meadows, containing a varity of grasses and 
      succulent, low-growing vegitation. In captivity the natural diet of these 
      sheep is suppulamented with alfalfa and grain pellets. In the wild these 
      animals will eagerly seek out mineral licks containing salt."
        "Gregarious animals, bighorn sheep somtimes gather in herds of over 100
      individuals. In the wild, herds consist of a dominent ewe and a mixture of
      ewes, yearlings and lambs. Rams travel in small bands of their own, joining
      the females during mating season."
        "Bighorn sheep are very alert and, in addtion to possessing keen hearing 
      and a good sense of smell, have remarkable vision that allows them to judge
      distances accurately when jumping and locating footholes. They can spot 
      other animals moving from up to a mile away. Bighorn hooves are hard on the 
      outside and soft on the inside, and so act as shock absorbers, contributing 
      to the sheep's ability to rapidly scramble up rocky terrain."
    
    -=American Bison=-
    
    Cost: $1,500
    Favorite Plant/Tree: Broadleaf Bush
    Shelter: Stable
    Toys: NONE
    Terrain: 94% grass, 6% freshwater.
    Minimum Exhibit Size: 6x6 squares.
    Recommended Exhibit Size: 7x8 squares.
    Crowd Appeal: Medium
    My Overall Rating: 6/10 - don't count on this for donations.
    My Notes: Althought the price tag for one of these is fairly steep upfront, it 
              is quite cheap in the long run to mintain and to build an exibit 
              for. Due to this I tend to have plenty of them in an exibit.
    Exibit Cost Calculation: - for 8 animals in nice exibit:
    
    o Animal: American Bison

    Zoo Keepers information: "The American Bison, somtimes referred to as the 
      American Buffalo, once comprised the largest community of wild animals in 
      the history of the world. By one estimate there were sixty million bison in 
      North America when Colombus landed. During the late 1800s, millions of these 
      animals were wantonly slaughtered, bringing them to the verge of 
      extincition. Today bisonn live only in parks and reserves or in privately 
      owned herds across the United States, and Canada. Bison herds usually 
      contain about 60 individuals: amix of cows, calves and young adults. Adult 
      males range singly or in smaller groups."
        "The more common varity of bison, the plains bison, is by definition a 
      creature of the grassland. These animals trive on a varity of Grasses. In
      captivity bison are generaly fed, alfalfa, hay or grain pellets. Bison need 
      a great deal of space and an adequate water supply, which they take once a 
      day."
        "Bison are very alert animals, with a keen sense of smell and hearing. A
      bison can detect a scent up to three kilometers away. They are also capable 
      of a varity of sounds such as a pig-like grunting when resting, snorting 
      when alarmed, and a loud bellowing when angry."
        "As the largest mammal on the North American continent, a healthy, adult
      bison needs to have little fear of predatars. However a peaceful grazing 
      animal can change without warning into a snorting, pawing, 2,000-pound 
      threat, with a menacingly lowered head, and stiffly uprised tail. Bison can
      charge at speeds of up to 30 mph. Both male and female bison have massive 
      heads, which are not only equipped with leatal horns, but are also effective
      as battering rams. As if this arsonal was not enough, a bisons hind legs can
      also be used to kill or maim any animal perceived to be a threat. Grizzly 
      bears and cougers were once formidable foes, but are now relativly uncommon 
      in areas the bison dwell today. Young old or sick bison may still be prayed 
      upon by wolves however."
        "Bison at rest may be seen rolling and wollowing. Wallows created by bison
      are shallow, dust-filled depressions and were once a common feature of the 
      plains were bison roamed in large numbers."

    Zoo Keepers information: "The Arctic wolf is a subspecies of the grey wolf. 
      Arctic wolves have white coats, which are thicker than the coats of southern
      wolves. Their ears are smaller and more rounded, their muzzzles are slightly 
      shorter, and their legs are noticably shorter. They are also heavier in 
      build, with a full-grown male weighting as much as 175 pounds."
        "Arctic wolves live on the islands of the Canadian arctic, and on the 
      northern coast of Greenland, roughly north of 70(=degrees=) North latitude.
      They inhabit a harsh world comprised of tundra, glacier valleys, and ice 
      fields. The ground in these regions is permanently frozen. Arctic wolves are
      able to endure temperatures as low as -70(=degrees=) F. Due to its isolation
      the arctic wolf is the purest of all wolf breeds."
        "As the terrain of arctic wolves is both inhospitable and inaccessible, 
      little is known about their behavior in the wild, esspecially during the 
      long, dark, winter months. Even the vast majority of Inuit live, live 
      further south than the arctic wolf. Research conducted duringing the summer 
      indicates that much of the Arctic Wolve's behavior is the same as that of 
      its southern cousin. Pack solidarity among Arctic wolves seems greater, 
      probably due to the fact that the lone wolf, is unlikely to survive in this 
      environment. In the wild the Arctic wolf generally lives about seven years, 
      whereas in captivity, it can live over 17 years."
        "Arctic wolves will eat any animal that they catch: from voles, lemmings,
      hares and birds to caribou and musk oxen. When seeking larger prey, they 
      must hunt togeather in packs, as coribou and musk oxen are too powerful for 
      any one wolf to bring down alone. Since there is little cover in the region, 
      the wolves must approach an alerted herd that has already formed a defensive 
      circle, with the calves in the centre. The wolf pack circles the herd, 
      trying to force it to scatter so that the wolves can isolate the young or 
      weak members. A single musk ox will provide the wolves with enough food for 
      several days. Arctic wolves consume every part of their prey, including the 
      skin, fur, and bones."
        "Wolves usually live in small packs or family groups of seven to ten 
      individual members, consisting of a breeding pair, their cubs and their 
      offspring. The two dominant wolves are the alpha male and female, and other
      pack members defer to them. Wolves communicate through postures and 
      expressions as well as with growls, houls, whimpers, whines and barks. A 
      single subtle body movement can express volumes. A wolf will flatten its 
      ears against the side of its head when afraid, and bare its teeth when 
      angry. Subordination is shown by lowering body and tail, or by rolling on 
      the back. A playful wolf will dance around and lower the front part of the 
      body, leaving the back raised."
        "After mating in March, the pregnant female to a den in which to give 
      birth. The cubs are born, deaf, blind and helpless. They are totally 
      dependant on their mother, and she in turn relies on her mate to bring her 
      food. All the adults in the pack corperate in feeding and caring for the 
      cubs. By the following year they may be ready to leave the pack."
        "The arctic wolf is the only subspecies of the wolf, that not only not
      threatened, but is still found throughout whole of its historical region. 
      Their habitat has served to protect them from the human threat that has 
      brought other wolf populations so close to extinction."

    Zoo Keepers information: "Bengal Tigers make their home in the tropical 
      jungles and tall grasslands of Bangladesh, Nepal, India, Bhutan and Burma. 
      The male Bengal Tiger can grow up to ten feet in lenght, from its head to 
      the end of its tail, with a shoulder width of up to three feet. Although 
      very large (weighing up to 575 pounds), the Bengal Tiger is not the largest 
      tiger; its cousin, the Siberian Tiger is the world's largest cat. When a 
      Bengal Tiger roars, you can hear it almost two miles away."
        "All tigers are considered endangered. Ten years ago, there was eight sub-
      species of the tiger, and now there only five. The other sub-species of 
      tigers, in addition to the Bengal are, Siberian, South China, Indochinese 
      and Sumatran. Humans are the tigers principal enemy. Tiger are hunted for 
      sport, fur, and for use in traditional Chiniese Medicine. Tigers may also be
      attacked by hyenas, leoapards, phytons and even other tigers. It is 
      estimated that there are less than 3,000 Bengal Tigers left in the wild."
        "Bengal Tigers are solitary and do not want to share there hunting 
      grounds, male hunting ranges are about 20 square miles;females require about
      17 square miles. The male and female only come togeather during the mating, 
      when sharing a kill or when sharing the same watering hole. In captivity, 
      these animals prefer larger exibits. Tiger litters range from 1 to 6 cubs, 
      which stay with their mother until their second year. Tigers reproduce well 
      in captivity."
        "Bengal Tigers pray on wild oxen (gaur), buffelo, wild boar, deer and 
      monkeys. Although a Bengal Tiger is capable of killing a bull gaur more than 
      twice its size, it prefers to attack younger or older animals that are 
      easier to take down. Bengal Tigers are voracious eaters, and eat 65 pounds 
      of meat each night, or the yearly equivilent of 30 buffalos. Zoos generally 
      feed their tigers some kind of meet (e.g. chicken, beef or horse) and bones, 
      often accompinied by a commercial brand of special feline diet."
        "Bengal tigers prefer areas of dense thickets, long grass and shrubs near 
      river banks. They will often be found in areas around old ruins, which 
      provide shelter for cubs. The tigers stiff whiskers, enable it to move 
      through thick cover in the dark. If the whiskers fit the whole body can 
      follow. They have white ear spots, which may help mothers and cubs to keep 
      track of each other when traveling through the dim tropical forests. Tigers 
      will take advantage of human-made trails and roads."
        "Although not very good at climbing, the Bengal tiger is a good swimmer, 
      and can commonly be seen wading in pools to cool off. They are slow runners 
      but are very skilled at stealthy stalking of pray, which they mostly hunt at
      night."
        "In captivity, tigers tend to be lazy beasts, spending the majority of 
      there time lounging in the sun. Tigers tend to get loud when they are 
      angry."
