Official expansion(s): Extinct Animals
Object type: Enrichment


Has a Biome?: Tundra

In Zoo Tycoon 2, the glacier is a climate-changing enrichment item that was first introduced in Zoo Tycoon 2: Extinct Animals. The glacier matches cold biomes, such as alpine and tundra well, and it is also recommended for animals living in those habitats. Animals cannot interact directly with glaciers.

When placed, the glacier emits snow particles at times, which is accompanied with the sound of snowstorm.

The glacier has a patch of clear ice on one side that will melt after several months. There is a chance that there may be a caveman in this ice. Once it melts, the caveman will walk around your zoo like a normal guest. If the glacier was in an exhibit, you will need to take him out.


  • The glacier is by far the game's only enrichment that summons an animal or human (in this case, a caveman).
