Hay Day's latest update, which includes the Wildlife Sanctuary, adds even more animals to your menagerie. But there's a catch: You have to collect their puzzle pieces to unlock them.\r\n\u00a0Unlike the other animals you tend to in\u00a0Hay Day, those in the Wildlife Sanctuary are wild animals and cannot be bought. The hunt is on for puzzle pieces, but they are certainly hard to find. They aren't given out often and you can only get them in certain ways...which we'll go over soon enough.\r\nBut first let's go over which animals you can get in this latest update and why you want them. 36 puzzle pieces is a lot to collect for just one animal -- but for completionists and anyone looking for extra EXP, they are worth it.\r\nUnlockable Wildlife Sanctuary Animals in\u00a0Hay Day\r\nThere are only three unique types of animals available for the Wildlife Sanctuary at the time of writing, all three of which come with two color variations. And each one also\u00a0unlocks two decorations\u00a0to spruce things up a bit.\r\n\r\nEach animal needs a\u00a0particular housing\u00a0to be present in the Sanctuary. Hippos need the Hippo House, elephants need the Elephant House, and giraffes need the Giraffe House.\r\n\r\nWhat do you get after you've gone through all the trouble to collect their puzzle pieces and build their homes?\u00a025 EXP each every 10 hours, provided you check on them. That's not too shabby!\r\n\r\n\r\nBrown Elephant\r\nUnlocks Dry Logs and Tall Grass\r\n\r\n\r\nGray Elephant\r\nUnlocks Baobab Trees and Termite Mounds\r\n\r\n\r\nBrown Hippopotamus\r\nUnlocks Rock Ponds and Short Bushes\r\n\r\n\r\nGray Hippopotamus\r\nUnlocks Aloe Plants and Palm Trees\r\n\r\n\r\nBeige Giraffe\r\nUnlocks Lala Palms and Rock Formations\r\n\r\n\r\nYellow Giraffe\r\nUnlocks Acacia Trees and Ice Plants\r\nHow to Get Puzzle Pieces in\u00a0Hay Day\r\nThere are more ways to get puzzle pieces than you might expect! They're definitely hard to come by, as the game seems to be exceedingly stingy with them -- but if you keep busy, you're bound to start racking them up.\r\n\r\nAs a note, you do have to\u00a0open the Sanctuary before you can start collecting puzzle pieces. You must have land touching the Sanctuary and you need to repair the book stand next to it to open it up. It costs 10,000 coins and 4 hours to repair the book stand.\r\n\r\nOnce you've opened your Sanctuary, here's how you get puzzle pieces to populated it with animals.\r\nDerby Rewards\r\nOccasionally puzzle pieces come up as derby rewards. If you haven't gotten involved in your neighborhood derby, it's about time. They can also be obtained by solo players at the derby.\r\nRed Tool Boxes\r\nThese pop up around your farm from time to time, sometimes locked and sometimes unlocked. Either can have puzzle pieces. If you're set on getting the new Wildlife Sanctuary animals, you should be opening these when you have the chance.\r\nTreasure Chests\r\nThese appear in the town lake every so often and sometimes require 5 diamonds to open. They do contain puzzle pieces on occasion, so keep an eye out.\r\nBoat Rewards\r\nAs if you really needed more reasons to do boat shipments, now there's a chance of getting puzzle pieces as a reward. It's hard work, but it's worth it if you're trying to collect wild animals. Do note you can only get them from fulfilling your own boats' requests and not another player's.\r\nWheel of Fortune\r\nAs with every other item on the wheel, getting a puzzle piece here is a game of chance. But that's not so different from the other ways you get puzzle pieces, either.\r\n\r\nThere are some players claiming puzzle pieces can also be obtained via level thresholds now, but I can't back that up -- it's something to keep in mind, though.\r\n\r\nThe basic gist of gaining puzzle pieces seems to be "play the game normally, but also spend diamonds on chests sometimes". It's not easy to get them and it takes time to get a whole animal's 36 puzzle pieces, but it's the easy EXP from the animals in the long run that makes it worth the effort.
