9th Zoo Birthday – A Unique Experience

More Gifts Await Players during the Log-In Process

Bamberg, January 27th, 2021. A big animal celebration takes place on the 9th birthday of My Free Zoo. Upjers (, the designer and publisher of popular browser games, put its shoulder to the wheel for the jubilee of the browser game.

What is a birthday without gifts?! It is a tradition in My Free Zoo ( to make the players a present during jubilees. This time it is the NPC “Antonia the Environmental Activist”. She walks across the zoo and gives players a present every six hours. Players that log into the game before February 3rd, 2021 (11 a.m. CET) will receive the NPC for free.

The game designers of My Free Zoo also came up with something really special for the jubilee: The animal kinds are now as unique as the game itself. Starting today chosen animals can also be collected and bred as special colored coat variants. Animals such as an albino crocodile and a white gorilla will soon be the new attractions of the virtual zoo in your browser.

To receive the unique animal variants players only have to breed the corresponding original animals. Doing so will give them the chance to receive a card piece of the special colored coat variant. So players that take an effort in breeding gorillas can look forward to card pieces of the white gorilla.

The following animal kinds are new to My Free Zoo and belong to the group of unique animals:

  • Blue Flamingo

  • Brown Panda

  • Brown Penguin

  • Brown Bactrian Camel

  • Pizzly Bear (Brown Polar Bear)

  • White Anaconda

  • White Alligator

  • White Gorilla

Players that have collected all of the aforementioned animals for their zoo will receive a black lion for free as a reward. The animal collection in My Free Zoo, where a new category for unique animals was added, provides an overview in this regard.

The My Free Zoo team wishes a lot of fun with the update for the 9th birthday of the browser game!
