Puzzle

US Version

After years of bad business, a local zoo has finally run out of money to feed its animals. Bellies rumbling from days with no food, the animals make a plan to escape the zoo. After prying open the bars on their rusted cages, all the animals attempt to find their way through the mazelike walls of the zoo to the exit.

Tap the picture of each animal you think made it safely out of the zoo, and then tap submit to answer. Just remember, an animal shows its true colors in the wild.

If you've already figured out which animals can make it to the exit, congratulations. But think for a moment about the title of this puzzle. All of the animals are free once they leave their cages, but it can be a jungle out there. Just because an animal can find its way to the exit doesn't mean it'll make it out alive...

If you've already worked out which animals can make it to the exit, congratulations! But think for a moment about the title of this puzzle. All the animals are free once they leave their cage, but it can be a jungle out there. Just because there is a route from an animal's cage to the exit, doesn't necessarily mean that animal will be able to make it there safely.

The only animal that will safely escape to freedom is the lion. While both the rabbit and the lion will make it as far as the path to the exit, the second the lion spots the rabbit, he's guaranteed to eat it.
