Dream Zoo codes and tips

UPDATE 5/13/13:

Zynga is discontinuing this game. Apparently, the company downsized and the game presented too many bugs to be worth fixing. Which is a huge shame, because by all accounts they won’t be refunding anyone their money (even people who have invested in the game in the past few weeks). My game stopped loading last week, and so I deleted it off my phone.

Dream Zoo has become my proxy for my desire to have lots of pets. I still have Bandit and Jacoby, but somehow taking care of a virtual zoo makes more sense right now for me.

One of the tricks to Dream Zoo (not surprisingly) is having lots of neighbors to visit. And there are codes here and there, but I thought I’d make a place dedicated to posting Dream Zoo codes to help other players. Feel free to comment and add your own code. Tips are also appreciated from players who have figured out a strategy that works.

Here are my tips:

1. Have a few rhinos and sequester them in their own areas, each set off by paths or just open space. Give each rhino 5 sections of 60% open grassland touching each other. Your champion coins will go from 15K to 53K for each rhino. These are your treasure chests. If you start from a common rhino and breed your way up, you’ll get paid every 12 hours. If you start from rare, you’ll get paid every 15 hours. I recommend starting from common. Having a few extra rhinos makes a few expansions worth the cost.

2. If you’re feeling like you want even more coins from your plains animals, you can move them to the rhino grassy areas (and move the rhinos out each time), cash in, and move the rhinos back. As long as an animal is within a certain environment at payout time, you’ll get that payout. That is, if you move a rhino back just before you cash him out, he’ll still get the 53K.

3. I can’t stress this enough — have a nursery area right by your dock. Put any babies in these sections. Visitors can see them right away and help speed up your babies. Not everyone plays on an iPad — Dream Zoo is very flaky and crashes A LOT on Droids, and I think lots of Droid players just play whatever hearts and coins they can at the dock and then move on, for fear of the app crashing when they explore a zoo. You can have 2 or 3 nursery areas (I have 2, but recommend 3). Have each one set off by paths to give them a little boost at payout time (or move the expecting animals back to their sections, where you undoubtedly have a few booster areas for them). You’ll need them separate from the surrounding sections anyway, probably plains or winter, and why not add a few percentage points payout with a couple of dirt paths, which cost only 100 coins?

3a. The Move tool is your friend. Use it frequently to increase coin payout and move expecting families to the dock nursery area.

4. Put plains animals next to the nursery area and keep them there so that your neighbors can get in and out quickly if they want to. Plains animals are almost always dirty. Next common dirty animals, in my experience, are koalas and puffins. Washing and feeding plains animals isn’t lucrative, but does get a quick heart (if they are placed near the dock). Exploring for more exotic dirty animals takes time and the risk of DZ crashing, but it gets you more coin if you’re looking for both coins and hearts on your travels.

5. Never pass up a dirty or hungry rhino. Every now and then when you’re visiting a neighbor, you’ll get lucky by finding one. Clean him, feed him. They give lots of coins.

6. Speed up babies when you’re visiting other zoos. It does not give you any coins, but it can make you a favorite neighbor and get your own babies sped up. This is especially important in underwater zoos.

7. Underwater Zoos are expensive. A few initial animals cost a reasonable amount of coin, but it won’t be long until you’re spending 60,000 coins per safari (and, of course, they don’t come with guarantees that you’ll get the animal and rarity that you want). If your zoo grade matters to you and you’re trying to maintain an A, for instance, get ready to pay out a LOT of money for your underwater zoo. Some of my neighbors are on level 60 and don’t even have an underwater zoo because they are just focusing on their animal park. Not a bad strategy. I have an underwater zoo, but my grade is currently a B- and I’m trying to boost it with every coin, heart and stork I get and it’s taking a LONG time to budge.

8. Underwater Zoo babies take a long time to deliver. Again, I suggest having a nursery area right by the landing area so that your neighbors can help you out as easily as possible.

9. Similar to my tip about keeping plains animals close to the dock, keep manta rays and sharks next to your landing area for your underwater zoo.

10. When you have 2 storks, save all your cash (Zoo Bucks, whatever) for a 3rd stork.

Here are the Zoo codes I’ve found. Sorry if not all of them work…some zoos may be abandoned, etc. Feel free to add your own in the comments. I’ll start with my own code. The rest are alphabetical, to avoid duplication on my part.
