Zoo Tycoon 2 Tips

A few hints.
1. When placing buildings, these are the basics:
Make a little area and put buildings around the edges of it. Then put picnic tables/umbrella tables on the area, along with garbage cans/recycling bins.
The usual buildings for a small zoo are this:
1/2 areas
2/4 small restrooms
6/12 picnic tables/umbrella tables
7/16 recycling bins/garbage cans
and grow as you keep expanding your zoo. <img src="http://i.neoseeker.com/d/icons/smile.gif" border=0 vspace=2 alt="" />
2. When dealing with animals, 3 words- choose the cheapest. It's good for you and hey, your guests will like it too.
Put at least 3/12 trees/plants/rocks for scenery.
To save money, put natural water instead of bowls. It saves you money and looks better, too.
Only put food when absolutely needed(I.E. carnivore). Herbivores can graze, but they need the occasional pile of branches.
Put a little quiet spot for your animals in the exhibits. They won't be happy if they're being stared at from every corner of the exhibit by guests.
And that's about it! I hope this helps some aspiring zoo maker <img src="http://i.neoseeker.com/d/icons/animesmile.gif" border=0 vspace=2 alt="" />
