The zoo is located in the southern part of East Ardougne and holds a variety of creatures gathered from across RuneScape. It is also the starting point of the Eagles' Peak, Cold War, & Hunt for Red Raktuber quests. Most of the time, the zoo is unpopulated as there is very little to do there, although players may pass through to reach the southern lands. The zoo can also be useful for players who train Range, Magic or Melee (Halberd must be equipped). This is due to the fact that the creatures held there are obstructed from the outside.
At the zoo, there are a range of creatures that can be found throughout Gielinor. Here are some of them.
The unicorn pen can be accessed by using the Fairy Ring network code BIS. The penguins' and monkeys' cages can be entered during and after certain quests however they cannot be fought.
Larry is also found in the Ardougne Zoo. He is a part in the Cold War quest and can get you in a Penguin when you have the right materials. Larry is also the man who you need to talk to when you want to start Penguin Hide and Seek. He can exchange your Penguin points for coins or experience.
For those players that read the Postbag from the Hedge letters that Jagex posts on their website, they will know that RuneScape's very own postman, Postie Pete, can be found around RuneScape in certain locations. What most players did not know is that Pete's brother, Parrot Pete, works at the Zoo and is rather crazy about parrots. Postie Pete may be randomly found speaking to his brother in the Zoo.
In the quest Monkey Madness a player is told to free a monkey in one of the cages. To do so you change into a monkey. Later on a Zoo keeper finds you and traps you into one of the zoo cages. Many players also come here for fun as a monkey to scare or surprise players.
The cages are spread out in the zoo, and each contain a particular creature. It has been claimed that the creatures are organized in different cages "for their own safety", although this is unknown. The interior of the cage is designed to support the environment the creature is familiar with. As you can see from the following pictures, there is a vast difference between cages:
The monkeys are found in the monkey cage. The monkey cage can be found on the west side of the zoo, just north-east of the Penguin Cage. You can enter the cage during the quest Monkey Madness.
The penguins are found on the far west side of the zoo, just south-west of the Monkeys and west of the Scorpions. You can also enter the penguin cage during the Cold War Quest.
The Scorpions are found on the south side of the zoo, just east of the Penguins.
The Camels are on the south side of the zoo, just east of the Scorpions.
