Zoo Keeper is one of my favorite arcade games. I set the local high score at an arcade museum in the fall :-)

I never got to play this at an arcade and I've yet to see a machine for it at any retro event.  Looks fun, though.

It was at the last APE show down in Fort Lauderdale area that you went to, but due to the large number of machines, the power was fluctuating and the power supply in the game wasn't putting out good voltage and so it was not working most of the time. It was actually just a couple machines to the right of the Make Trax machine that you played.

Good memory!  Maybe I don't remember it because it wasn't working.
