Animals are the main focus of ZooMumba. They may be purchased or sold in the Zoo Shop, won on a Safari or the Wheel of Fortune, or otherwise acquired through special events. Animals may be displayed and housed in habitats if they are of the same species. Alternatively, they can be put into storage in the Zoo Depot. They may be cared for by supplying feed. If a male and female pair are placed in the same habitat, breeding can be attempted. Some animals can also be bred in the Breeding Lab to create subspecies.
