Zoo Tycoon

The Bottlenose Dolphin is an adoptable animal in both Zoo Tycoon and Zoo Tycoon 2. In both games, it is available in the Marine Mania expansion pack. It can be trained to put on shows to entertain guests, like many other marine mammals in Zoo Tycoon and in real life. In both games, it eats mainly fish.

The Bottlenose Dolphin breeds fairly often in captivity, so it is best to check often to make sure that the tank isn't overpopulated.

Zoo Tycoon 2

[Insert information here]


The Bottlenose Dolphin, Tursiops truncatus, is a dolphin that is found in temperate and tropical marine waters worldwide. They have, as their common name suggests, short stubby beaks. They are grey in colour, with a silver or white coloured underbelly.


Bottlenose Dolphins are the only fully aquatic animal in Zoo Tycoon 2 DS.
