* SpeakingSimlish: The entertainers from the ''Extinct Species'' expansion of the second game speak in unintelligible gibberish. The guests sometimes do as well, but they mostly communicate via sounds like shouting and sighing.

* ArtisticLicenseEconomy: In-game zoos buy and sell animals, despite real-life zoos [[https://smartasset.com/taxes/the-economics-of-zoos using a barter system to keep the conservation of animals ethical]]. There are some scenarios that [[AvertedTrope avert]] this by having animals donated to your zoo, as would be the case of many actual animal sanctuaries.

** In the sequel, you are encouraged to use plants appropriate to the biome, but the game doesn't go do far as to care if they come from different areas, even separate continents.
* MixandMatchCritters: It's possible to breed reticulated giraffes with Masai giraffes. The offspring can have either coat pattern. This is slightly useful if you're very low on money as reticulated giraffes are much more expensive, so you can buy one of each kind. This saves a few thousand dollars compared to buying two reticulated giraffes, and adds more points to your animal variety stat.

** It's not possible to have free ranging peafowl like many real zoos do. Well, you can try, but guests won't view them if they are not in a enclosure.



* FantasyKitchenSink: Using the right expansion packs and Easter eggs, your zoo can include exhibits for bigfoot, yeti, mermaids, unicorns, and Loch Ness monsters.

** There is a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hq5KwlYhfKY hidden gold brick path]] in the first game, generally considered the most beautiful path in the game, that becomes available if you put a lion, a tiger, and a brown bear in the same exhibit. This is a reference to the famous "Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!" line from the ''Film/TheWizardOfOz.''
