    I've drowned people in ZT1 and fed them to T-rexes in both games. Sometimes I'll just put them in tiny enclosures as punishment for not liking my zoo or getting angry. I used to get so pissed when they got mad and left the zoo just cuz the food isn't good or something.

    When I was a kid playing the game, I'd keep building stuff until I ran out of money. Once I ran out of money, I'd fire my zookeepers, delete all the fences, and watch the animals attack the guests. (eventually I learned better money management skills) When I discovered the penguin glitch, I had some fun with that.

    If any of you are wondering about mine...

    I once brought a pair of warthogs for one of my zoos. nothing weird about that, except I think there was a glitch of some kind because these warthogs kept having babies- like every five minutes there was another baby warthog. initially I did what most people would do, which was sell the babies and use the money to buy cool stuff. I soon got bored of that though, and left them to their own devices to see when they would stop breeding. the little enclosure soon got overcrowded so I built them a bigger enclosure at the back of the zoo where the guests couldn't get to and more or less forgot about it. it got to the point where there was probably around 200 warthogs and the enclosure was basically a swarming mass. They were giving birth faster than I could sell them so I put a load of lions in the enclosure to try and lessen the numbers- they were giving birth while being chased around the enclosure.

    I wish this story had a conclusion, but at this point my computer crashed and I lost my entire game. I often wonder if those warthogs are still breeding somewhere deep within the coding of the game.

    TL:DR- I created a warthog Armageddon

    Simulator games are most fun if there's cruelty potential.

    In JPOG, I let the carnivores out for a meal.

    On ZT2 once, I spawned a bunch of Tigers and Lions, and a Battle was fought between the Kings of Cats. Many a Valiant Herowere lost, and Ribcages with Meat on them Littered the Ground

    But which side won?

    On ZT2, I've gotten the killer penguin a few times but never really did anything with it. I should boot up the game and try it sometime.

    When I discovered I couldn't put the people in with the tigers, I started removing fences. The people ran and screamed but the tigers didn't chase them. So I put the tigers into another animal exhibit and was shocked when suddenly and in a poof of smoke, those other animals were suddenly gone.

    I released 7 Velociraptor sornaensis into the park, ironically and anticlimactically, they didn't attack a single guest
