Valentine’s Season is coming to Zoo World! Starting on January 26th, Zookeepers can embark on a quest to find love and happiness. Those who do can earn limited-edition Rare and Ultra Rare animals — two at a time!
The Love Story
Dr. Zoo Little has been scouring the globe to find and help lonely animals. As he finds the heartsick creatures, he will send them to you for your help in matching them with their valentines.
To help, you will play Cyrano de Bergerac to the critters, making them look their best and finally nudging them toward their partner.
A Band of Lonely Hearts
To get started, click the animal located off of your dock to bring up the Valentine’s screen. From here, you can choose an animal to help, collect items, and find the animal’s valentine.
The first animal available is the Warm Hearted Turtle. You must find the Warm Hearted Turtle’s valentine before you can move on to the next animal, and so on for each additional animal.
Dr. Zoo Little will bring new animals that need your help approximately every three days. Provided you’ve helped each previous animal, you’ll be able to help the new one!
True Love Starts with Romantic Treats, Flowers and a Clean Look
Before you go out hunting for the Valentine, you need to make sure your new friend looks his (or her) best. First impressions are the most important!
To do that, you’ll need a collection of five different items:
- Collect Candy Hearts from the feed.
- Collect Rose Petals, Grooming Supplies and Valentine’s Cards through gifting with friends.
- Collect Chocolate Covered Strawberries by feeding treats.
You can ask for materials to be gifted to you 4 times per day, or once every 6 hours. Likewise, you can post Candy Hearts to the feed once every 6 hours, and 10 people can collect from each feed post.
The popular Checkin feature is back, and even more helpful. A heart will appear over the lonely animal on your docks every five minutes. Click on the heart to check in (and get a handy XP point in the process.) Three checkins awards you with the Valentine’s component of your choice! That’s the equivalent of getting one Wildlife Point for Valentine’s every fifteen minutes.
So if you just need one more Candy Heart, you’re only three clicks away.
A Delicious Treat
This time around, you get the special seasonal item when feeding any treat in Zoo World. Prefer to feed your animals the 10-minute apples, or the 1-hour grapes? Great! You’ll still have a chance to gain Chocolate Covered Strawberries when you collect the hearts. You can collect up to 10 hearts per day from treats.
Remember: purple hearts do not give chocolate-covered strawberries, so make sure you collect those treats on time.
Lookin’ Good! Now Find his Mate
Once you’ve got the pieces, you’re ready to help find the animal’s mate. With 5 helping hands, you’ll have a pair ready for love. Post a request to the feed and your friends can help you find the valentine — or, you can buy them for 1 WLP each.
All done! For uniting the animal with its valentine, you’ll receive two of the happy animals for your zoo.
All of the basic animals are Rare, and once completed, you have the option of upgrading both of them to Ultra Rares. Upgrading costs 20 WLP total, giving you two — twice the bang for your Wildlife Point.
You can upgrade to an Ultra Rare at any time (during the promotion) by clicking on the Rare in your zoo. This will always upgrade two at a time.
All Valentine’s Seasonal animals will become breedable after the event ends.
The Beginning and the End of the Love Story
Dr. Zoo Little found two animals for you to get started on right away:
You must help the Warm Hearted Turtle before you can find the Social Gorilla’s valentine. Likewise, you must help both of these critters before the third one Dr. Zoo Little brings at a later date.
Valentine’s Season ends on February 22nd, at Noon PST. Check back here on the blog for updates, new animal announcements and giveaways that can help you complete your set.
Happy Heart Day!
