The Zoo Key is a key item found in EarthBound Beginnings. It is used to enter the Choucream Zoo north of Podunk.


The Zoo Key was intended to be used in order to unlock the gate at Choucream Zoo. Upon reaching the gate, the monkey outside will take it away from Ninten and run inside, however the monkey also breaks the lock allowing Ninten to enter anyway.

If the Zoo Key is thrown out of Ninten's inventory, Abbott will provide him with another one.
