How to Create Animals in Animal Jam

Animals are the main characters of the game.  Creating an animal is the first step in playing Animal Jam.  Players can customize an animal’s patterns, colors, features and names.

How to Create an Animal

Step 1: Click the button in the lower left corner that says “Switch Animals”.


Step 2: Click on the blue paw that says “Make a New Animal”.


Step 3: Choose an animal.  Some of them are for members only and require a membership.


Step 4: Create a name for your animal by clicking on the arrows to scroll through the names.  Click “Buy” to begin playing as your new animal!


How to Recycle Animals

If you need to make more space for new animals, you can recycle some of your current ones.  When you recycle an animal, you will get some points back so you can buy a new animal.

Step 1: Go to your animal inventory and click on the trash bin in the lower right corner.


Step 2: Click on the animal that you want to recycle.


Step 3: A box will pop up asking if you are sure you want to recycle the animal.  It also tells you how many gems you will get back.  Once you recycle an animal, you can’t get it back unless you buy it again.


You can only have two different animals saved if you have a free account.  You should have one land animal and one water animal so you can explore the entire map.

Members can have up to 24 animals on their account.  Members also have access to exclusive animals that free users can’t get.
