A habitat is an ecological or environmental area that is inhabited by a particular species of animal, plant, or other type of organism. There are currently 12 habitats in Disco Zoo: Farm, Outback, Savanna, Northern, Polar, Jungle, Jurassic, Ice Age, City, Mountain, Moon and Mars.
Each habitat is characterized by the animals that can be rescued there and added to the player's zoo. Habitats are associated with different colors, as well as a specific mini-game appearance. Habitats also determine the appearance of each animal's enclosure in the zoo, and the color of their locations on the in-game map.
All habitats contain 3 common animals, 2 rare animals, and one mythical animal.
Habitats are "reached" via various aircraft associated with each area. The cost to travel to each habitat gradually increases until it hits a cap.
