ZOMBIEZOO’s lovable zombie animals are both cuddly and creepy. These adorable creatures are a family of fun loving animals including Boo the black cat, the natural born leader of the group and Stich a pig obsessed with hygiene. Along with their friends, Muck the "party animal" monkey, Rob the poetic rabbit and Toxic the competitive red snake. These adorable creatures are not quite normal animals and this is not quite a normal zoo. As best friends, the zombies journey through their zoo, discovering new things every day.
