Dinosaur Digs

As the first official expansion pack, Dinosaur Digs adds a total of 26 new prehistoric animals and 1 mythical animal that you can place in your zoo. Just make sure to build a strong electric fence as dinosaurs may harass, and even eat your guests!

Marine Mania

On top of the new aquatic-themed animals, Marine Mania gives the player the option to make giant tanks that can hold a lot of marine animals for display, and even hold Marine Shows. The player can even choose which trick and what animal will perform, as well as how often these shows will be held. This expansion also adds the ability to build "combined" exhibits for amphibious animals to access.
