Planet Zoo Update 1.7.2
Planet Zoo Update 1.7.2 Frontier Developments PLC

A new animal and some baked goodies await players of Planet Zoo, thanks to the latest update. Update 1.7.2 celebrates the game’s second anniversary. While it is not as rich in content as the previous patches, there is still a lot to be excited about.

First is the Black-and-White Ruffed Lemur, a new habitat animal available for free to everyone, even those playing the base version of the game. There is also a new shop called Bernie’s Bakes, where you will find a sweet selection of delicious cupcakes. Some scenery assets have been added as well, so you will have the complete freedom to beautify the bakeshop to your liking.

Besides that, Loony Balloons will be selling unique foil balloons to all of your guests to make the celebration more festive over the weekend. Furthermore, from November 5 to November 7, there will be a special community challenge where releasing animals will give you bonuses. For instance, every five animals you release will give you a boosted animal with improved genes and a small chance of being a color morph.
