Looking for more ambiance within your zoo? Then this Zoo & Wild Animals addon is for you! We plan to add various small creatures to the game, all with their own custom models, textures, animations, sounds, and more!

Current version (beta4) requires Zoo & Wild Animals Rebuilt 1.5.5 and Bookworm 2.1.0 for Minecraft 1.12.2!


This mod is still a work in progress, all releases are beta builds!

Files with "-beta" appended to the end are not a final project, anything included in them are highly likely to change and even possibly cause issues in your world. Please, make backups!
