A Whole ZOO On Your CD
Holy Noah's ark! More than 200 animals have just crawled into your Sega CD. The Animals, from The Software Toolworks, features photos and descriptions of every single animal in the San Diego Zoo. It's also full of movies, sound recordings, and fun projects that you can do at home. No, there aren't any pictures of your dog or cat, but can you think of a single wild critter that's not included on this CD? It's pretty tough.
The Call Of The Wild
Sure, this is a massive collection, but it's easy to look up the animal you're interested in. Just use the Library and Search tools. Go to the Library to watch a film of an elephant getting his toenails cleaned, listen to a gray wolf howl, or find out what black rhinos like to eat. Want to learn about all your pet pooch's wild relatives? Just click on Search and choose Dog to see exhibits on the African hunting dog, the coyote, the dhole, and several wolves and hyenas. Who knew Fido had so many cousins?
You can also take guided tours of zoo exhibits like the nursery, the primate house, and the aviary (where the birds are.) With all this fun animal info to play with, you'll be an expert the next time you go on a safari...or to the zoo!
Want to explore a particular part of the world? The Animals features exhibits of nine regions, like the tropical rain forest. You can learn about more than 50 animals that live there—like these guys.
