Entrance v1
Notes: Cambridge Zoo is a zoo I am building in Zoo Tycoon 2, hypothetically on the outskirts of Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Keep in mind that I'm trying to go for semi-realism. This zoo will start out with animals that are less exciting, because no modern zoo realistically starts out with African bush elephants and Siberian tigers right off the bat! If you have any requests for animals later on, I'll let you know whether or not said species is a possibility! I'll try to come up with a better backstory later!

Our zoo will start out with eight species:
Black Swan, Moose, Dromedary Camel, Border Leicester Sheep, Red Fox, Wild Turkey, Raccoon, Shetland Pony. (keep in mind that I will post a maximum of three exhibits per post, excluding this one, because it's late at night when I'm posting this, but I'll work on exhibits in my spare time!)

I'm in the mood for riddles, so guess what animal this riddle below is about and my next post will be that animal!

The king of my domain. I don't need a mane.
I have big paws, but they won't be of much help if all the ice thaws.

Each area I plan on making will be its own large map, because I put literally everything onto one, it wouldn't fit and/or the game would totally crash.

I also will add some surprise animals that are not listed above!

Sorry, this whole thing fell under my radar!


However,
I am working on a new-ish project for a ZT2 Discord server, and I'd thought I'd share my pics from there!

This particular server focuses on users making start-up zoos and/or aquariums with realistic species to start out with, and you can "trade" animals with other members (for those who know Planet Zoo's franchise mode, it's *kinda*like that). Also, by "realistic" species to start out with, that means not going straight for the huge crowd-pleasers, such as tigers and gorillas, from the get-go.

I already have a pre-existing zoo on there, but this NEW zoo will be freshly built!
This zoo is called The Wild Ranch, and is hypothetically set in the state of Idaho. Fun fact: The reasons I chose Idaho are: 1. It's a big state with not a lot of zoos in real-life. 2. That's where Napoleon Dynamite was filmed and I frickin' love that movie. (and no, Ligers will not be in this zoo because there is no conservation value in breeding hybrid animals such as ligers whatsoever).

Stay tuned!
