Other Information

The killer penguin (Eudyptes omnicidus) is a species of bird in the penguin family. As its name suggests, this penguin is generally more aggressive than other penguins. It appears in Zoo Tycoon 2 as a joke animal, but it is implied it is extinct in the real world. It is also a reference how in the first game, Emperor Penguins could kill animals they shouldn't have, though this penguin more resembles a giant rockhopper. This penguin can't be adopted like other animals, and is only obtainable by failing in the cloning lab, either you get an ambient animal, or an egg. These penguins can't be put up for adoption, as no zoos will accept these (obviously). And can't be released unless they are extremely happy. The only other way to dispose of these penguins is if they die somehow, if they get eaten, of old age, et cetera.
