Epic animals, also known as IAP animals, are animals which can only be obtained through in-app purchase (IAP). They all impact the game in a positive way, and are also playable in game, but are not found naturally in the stampede. There are currently three epic animals. When epic animals are purchased, they appear in an isolated habitat to the right of the Shop which automatically has the appearance of something similar to a combination of a level 8 & 9 habitat. The epic habitat cannot be upgraded, and since it cannot be upgraded, epic animals do not have the ability to earn bonus coins in the stampede.
