The zookeeper crew are looking wonderful Eplay!  The unforms are really nice colours & that red panda logo is adorable. I assume there'll be lots of red pandas in the zoo too?

Oh yes. The ladies love to cuddle and play with the red panda’s.
I bought a couple on marktplaats so I thought I was getting the normal ones. But they all differ in colour and they smell a bit weird, so they must be discarded Wiltopia ones.

I do the opposite - I use figure frames and heads while drafting, and change them to the "permanent" ones when I am done (whenever possible). Exceptions for klickys that have heavily modified parts (like the Galactica ones), or if I anticipate.. issues.

Messing with done klickys is not common around here...

That is a good idea. I think I will do that once I have my zoo keeper army complete and I am content with them.

Yes, those look like the Wiltopia coloring. Nice to have a number of them, though you rarely see more than 2 in an enclosure at a zoo.

Didn’t know that. ??? Did some reading and they are indeed solitary animals only pairing up when mating.
Today I bought 4 lemurs on sale. Did some reading but luckily they live in groups :lol:

Of course, well-run zoos pander to their animals' every need.

Thanks for the fireman keychain 70649 tip. I ordered one on sale and it’s a perfect match. Now the fireman has short sleeves ;) I found it fairly easy to erase the print with a pencil eraser.
I also ordered some matching hats from the parts service but they will arrive later.

Now I’m still searching for a reasonably priced 70295 to make an African American female zookeeper.

It’s been a while, but I’ve found another set of the Asian zoo for a very reasonable price.  ;D the animals will have a bigger enclosure.
In addition, I bought 2 sets of the zoo veterinary practice 70900 (it was on sale for >50% off. I have a lot of zoo animals, but I was lacking the giraf and chimpanzee. So it’s a good buy for me. 
I’m thinking about making the second building into a cafe (like 70115 or 5129) or an ice cream shop. I’ll need to buy some spare parts for that but not too much.
And a cafe or ice cream shop will go nicely with all the family fun/camping/leisure sets that I have.

I’m hoping to have some time the last week of august to set everything up.

Great additions, those are both great sets.
