Welcome 


* Welcome 


Welcome to The San Diego Zoo™presents... 

The Animals. r Discover the liveliest collection of 
animal sights, sounds, and statistics ever to appear 
on a computer screen. The technical wizardry of 
SEGA CD 5 brings the mammals, birds, and 
reptiles of the world-famous San Diego Zoo right 
into your home. 

The Animals! is a sneak preview of the San Diego 
Zoo’s long-range plans. The idea is to group 
animals by natural habitats called biomes. Also 
called a bioclimatic zone, a biome is a combination 
of biological, geographical, and climate features. 
Biome organization of the zoo helps emphasize 
three important issues in the world today: 

•All life is connected. 

•People affect habitats. 

•Many species are endangered. 

Just like the real zoo, The Animals! is full of 
wonderful animal exhibits. The difference is that 
each exhibit is a media event—photos, movies, 
stories, and text. Feel free to wander the zoo and 
explore exhibits any way you like. Or you can take 
one of the guided Tours, such as Animals In 
Disguise, which takes you on a specific path 
through the zoo.

impact on that biome in different countries around 
the world. Successive exhibits show animals native 
to the biome. You can enter biomes from the Main 
Menu map. 

Animal Exhibits - Within the biomes, learn about 
animals through video clips, animal sounds, 
narration, and beautiful photos from the Media 
Library. You can explore a species and learn about 
its problems in the world today.

interest, such as Animals In Disguise, Fact Or 
Fable, and Jaws, Claws & Creature Features by 
choosing Tours from the Main Menu map. Each 
tour is narrated by a guide, such as a curator, zoo 
keeper, or wildlife expert. Your guide is very 
patient—you can jump on and off tours any time 
to explore things that interest you. 

Stories - Read and hear about animal adventures. 
Stories show up in many exhibits, and they are fun 
and easy to use. All stories are in the Story
