Zoo not giving item
Hi, I'm on the Lv7 zoo, furthest I've ever gotten, cleared the zoo, but it's not giving me the item, even thoguh I've never gone more then 10 spaces from the door. I've opened all doors in the zo an d there isn't more zoo behind any of them.

I've already had a zoo that was split across 2 rooms back on Lv4, but it was only one door off from the room I was in, so it wasn't hard to clear.

Did you go to another floor whilst clearing? If not, did you use teleporting spell on any mob(emomancy for eg)? If so he could be teleported to nearby rooms.

Nope, the only thing I've got is Ragnar's Meteor and Dwarven Handshake in the mace's skill tree. Could it have been my use of Release the Hounds from the big game hunter's skill tree?

As I said, I did check all ajacent rooms and found nothing.

There is a kill counter under the map as far as I remember. Also going to your pocket dimension counts as running away so you lose the prize if you do that (it works the same as leaving the floor which also gives up the prize).
Also on a side note you only need to kill X zoo monsters not everything in the zoo. X equals the number of zoo monster at the start. Revived monsters count as new zoo monsters but at the same time do not rasie X when they come back. This means you don't have to clear all of some zoos.

Yes there is. The counter will disappear if you ever leave that level, including, as you say, using your pocket dimension, as well as any staircase.

If the counter is still there, that means that you are still missing something. Monsters have been known to run far away, teleport away, and so on. When that happens, It can occasionally be a real pain in the neck to track the monster(s) down.

You should not worry about getting too far away from the zoo room. That used to be a problem, but it's my understanding that they've changed that. And in my experiences, monsters CAN wander very far away from the zoo. Several of us have made various suggestions on the official forums regarding how to deal with this problem. But because of GLG's current project, Clockwork Empires, I believe that any work on Dredmor has been postponed.

Note also that in the past, I THOUGHT I had a problem similar to yours, where the count did disappear, but I had not received an award. Turns out that I actually HAD received it, but because of type-ahead or something to that affect, I never actually saw the message about the reward. But upon checking, I did find something in my inventory. If the counter IS gone, and you really never did leave that level in any way, you may want to double or triple-check your inventory. Otherwise, you can report this on the official forums -- it's not a known bug.

in case Wizardland DLC is not installed there is a chance a monster got pushed into the walls (can be seen on the minimap if that happened)

Well I figured it out, I ensured I only attacked mobs in a direction that a knockback could not send them through walls, apparently the zoo was at least 1 mob short from completion, I had to ensure to kill the Witchys last so they would start rezing dead mobs to fill out the counter.

Yeah, I have all 3 expansions and I make all games from the wizarlands launcher with the digglegods levels active.
