   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.

-=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

o Total: Animals:  $7,200

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.

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."

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
  Cost: $1,500 x 10 = $15,000

o Fence: Low Chain-Link Fence

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."

My Overall Rating: 8/10 - it is quite popular in most zoos.
My Notes: Don't let your self  think "I'm getting a bargin!", because you 
          are'nt getting anything special, despite the low price tag for such 
          an exotic animal, it costs a lot to build the exibit.

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."

-=Bengal Tiger=-

Cost: $800
Favorite Plant/Tree: Mangrove Tree
Shelter: Rock Cave
Toys: NONE
Terrain: 72% rainforest, 10% freshwater, 13% grass, 5% dirt.
Minimum Exhibit Size: 8x8 squares.
Recommended Exhibit Size: 10x10 squares.
Crowd Appeal: Very High
My Overall Rating: 9/10 - For some reason the public love it.
My Notes: The Bengal Tiger is like the Arctic Wolf in the sense that its got
          a low price tag, but can still cost a lot when it comes to giving 
          them an exibit.
Exibit Cost Calculation: - for 2 animals in nice exibit:

o Animal: Bengal Tiger
  Cost: $800 x 2 = $1,600

o Fence: Chain Link Fence
  Cost: $70 x 10 x 10 (exibit size) = $7,000

o Terrain: Rainforest (72%), Grass (13%), Freshwater (10%), Dirt (5%).
  Cost: Total squares 100 (10 x 10)
        Rainforest = 100 x 0.72 = 72 = 72 x $50 = $3,600
        Grass = 100 x 0.13 = 13 = 13 x $40 = $520
        Feshwater = 100 x 0.10 = 10 = 10 x $30 = $300
        Dirt = 100 x 0.05 = 5 = 5 x $20 = $100
        Total = $3,600 + $520 = $300 + $100 = $4,520

o Trees: Rainforest Fern, Foxtail Palm, Mangrove Tree (Favorite).
  Cost: Rainforest Fern = 5 x $45 = $225
        Foxtail Palm = 5 x 120 = $600
        Mangrove Tree = 5 x $155 = $775
        Total = $225 + $600 + $775 = $1,600

o Total: Animals:  $1,600
         Fences:   $7,000
         Terrain:  $4,520
         Trees:  + $1,600

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."
