How To Get To The Animal Contest

  • Click play.

The second way is through the compass.

  • Click on the compass at the bottom right of your screen.
  • Click on the “VS” button on the bottom left.

  • You will need one animal from each of the 5 biomes.
  • Choose your most powerful exotic animals.  If you are lucky enough to have them, the four star animals are the best and most powerful.  The number on the middle right side of the animal picture is their power level.
