FarmVille Animal Sanctuary theme grows in surprise market update


A (small) new set of Animal Sanctuary items has been released in FarmVille this evening, containing two new animals and some decorations.

These animals are the Peafowl and Mini Zebra Pegasus. The Peafowl costs 20 Farm Cash, while the Mini Zebra Pegasus costs 35 Farm Cash. Purchasing either one of these animals gives you a large bundle of XP as a reward, with the Peafowl giving off 2000 XP and the Mini Zebra Pegasus rewarding you with 3500 XP.

As for the decorations, you can buy a Hippo-Pond (a fairly large water feature surrounded by plants and rocks, with a hippo swimming in the water) for 18 Farm Cash, a Zoo Fence for 5,000 coins or a Zebra Bench for 10,000 coins. While it's nice to see this theme receive more coin-only items, I have to admit I'm still a little disappointed in the lack of a "wow" factor. While there's no guarantee that this theme will grow any larger, we'll make sure to let you know if it does (and if my call for a more impressive coin-only item is answered).

In the meantime, make sure to take a look at these items within the next 19 days, as they'll expire after that point, with no guarantee that they'll ever return.

What do you think of tonight's surprise market update in the Animal Sanctuary theme? Let us know in the comments.
