Frog Scramble Basics
How Much Does it Cost to Play Frog Scramble?
Each try costs Zoo Bucks, and awards one of five beautfiul animal prizes! See the below charts for specific event prices. 
How Do I Play?
Tap on any frog to reveal the animal prize underneath! Win at least one of each animal prize to win the GRAND PRIZE - you'll get a COMPLETE family of the Grand Prize animal INSTANTLY!
Where Do I Find My Prizes?
Your prizes are stored in your inventory until you are ready to place them in your zoo. To get to your inventory, close the Prize Pond by tapping on the X button in the upper right. Then, tap on the "Store" button on your main Zoo Screen. Lastly, launch your inventory by tapping on the "Inventory" button!
Are There Ever Any Free Tries?
Yes, there are occasionally Free Tries in the Prize Pond. To check if you have a free try, open the prize pond and look at the top left corner. If it says that each frog tap costs Zoo Bucks, then you do not have any free tries. If it says "Free Try" instead, then you do! Just click on any frog, and you'll get a lovely animal prize for FREE! You should also see a modal mentioning a Free Try when you enter the game if there is currently one. 
Is It Worth It?
Of course! With the Prize Pond, you are able to obtain expired animals for almost half of their original price, and sometimes for FREE! Plus, if you collect all 5 animals, you get an ENTIRE FAMILY of Grand Prize animals that aren't available with any other methods.
