    Here is a challenge game I have created. Every one who participates will be assigned 15 random species in a certain amount. Basically, it will work like any other fantasy zoo community but with a limited species pool. Everyone has a budget of 15,000,000 USD and cannot aquire animals from outside the thread. If people want, they may request to only recieve species from a specific continent.

A row of buildings on the other side include a gift shop, restauraunt, offices, education, and an indoor exhibit- porcupine, platypus, opposum, civet, jerboa and mynahs. (1.5 acres for all buildings) The hoofstock and cheetahs all share a line of habitats. (6 acres) A small trail off to the sode exjibits the marten, owls and seals(4 acres). A farmyard exhibits the pigs and bees.( 2 acres)

    A few rule updates.
    1. Time works on the 1 month is 1 year
    2. Any trade of animals may occur between zoos, but none can be exchanged outside of the thread.
    3. All zoo owners are responsible to realistically account for births and deaths.

    If anyone wants any species at my zoo (except for orangutans), I am willing to trade for any species of bird.

    Why do I think this is kinda rigged? I somehow got gerenuk as a random species.

    Serengeti Zoo
    This zoo is situated just outside the famed Serengeti National Park in Tanzania, by the Ngorongoro Crater. Despite the warm temperatures, we have found ways to keep even cold-weather animals comfortable.
    Nyumbani:
    This is our zoo's African section (Nyumbani means home in Swahili). It will start with one large paddock for our herds of 4.6 Grant's zebra and 4.4 Gerenuk. Next is a smaller, but great quality, enclosure for 0.1 Serval, though we hope to obtain a male to breed her. There is also a lemur walkthrough which has our 7.7 Red ruffed lemur and 2.4 Mongoose lemur plus an aviary for 1.2 White-crested turaco.
    Pahāḍaharū:
    This section is for our Asian species (the section name means mountains in Nepali). The section starts with an aviary for 1.1 Asian fairy bluebird. Next up are two rocky, mountainous enclosures for 1.1 Central Chinese goral and 2.4 Sichuan takin. Nearby is a tree-filled enclosure for 1.1 Nepalese red panda. Lastly is a more humid enclosure for 1.1 Visayan warty pig.
    American Discovery:
    This is our American section. It starts in North America and ends in South America. Thus, our first exhibit s a large pool with some land area for 4.6 American alligator. Next is a large aviary for 100.100 Canada goose. Lastly is an aviary for 1.2 Sunbittern.
    Encounter Area:
    This is our children's zoo. Currently, it only contains 20.30 Boer goat.
    There is also an Oceanian and Antarctic area, but since I have no animals from those regions, it's not mentioned.

    Also, does anyone want Canada geese or red ruffed lemurs? I'm offering up to 70.70 geese and 5.5 lemur pairs.

    The random animal generator I found would not go all the way to species. For instance, it gave me antelope as one of the 15 species, so I just chose the first antelope species I could think of- which was gerenuk. Also, I am very loosely using the generator because I want to give people a mix of bird, reptile, mammals, and other groups. The generator really only gives the very basic animals and really is short on the birds.

    If a random animal generator gives me humans as a species, would it be ethical to make someone incorporate them into a zoo???

    @The Gerenuk If I asked you for 1.1 gerenuks, what would you take in exchange?
