Zoo

David's Treasure Zoo is a room randomly generated in the Dungeons of Doom. Most of the squares in the room are occupied by a sleeping random monster, and a random amount of gold.

The top floor of Sokoban always has a zoo, with an amulet of reflection or bag of holding in addition to its usual features. Another guaranteed zoo occurs in the middle level of the Wizard's Tower.

Each level in the main branch starting with level 7 has a one in seven chance of being a zoo, unless the level already has a shop, a throne room, or a leprechaun hall, or is a maze or a special level. In practice, this means about 10% chance.[1]

Strategy

Often, it is safer to displace several pets into a zoo rather than fight it out yourself. This is because monsters will use their ranged attack only against you and because they will only attack the pet when it attacks them.
