Research can be found in a couple of different spots.

You will need to research everything at the main gate, which will include everything under the advertising and also everything under the research tab.

You will also need to research everything in the buildings and animals tabs.
This will include exhibits, mini exhibits (and the animals under that tab), decorations, concessions and facilities.
And all of the animals and toys that can be placed inside of the exhibits as well.

I started a fresh challenge and then researched everything so I made sure not to miss anything. Good luck! :)

You will need to research all of the:

- Items in the main gate. Do this early because one of the research items reduces the time for research in general
- Facilities
- Exhibits (drill down into each and research the different sizes)
- Animals in the main exhibits
- Animals in the mini exhibits
- Decorations (there are lots - drill down into each section to get them all)
- Concessions

For the animals, you will need to build an exhibit or mini exhibit and select to adopt an animal. You will then have the opportunity to research the ones that are not yet available. For the large animals you are able to see/research them all regardless of which exhibit you've selected. The mini exhibits are easy to miss because you have to build each mini exhibit type in order to see the specific animals that can live in them.

NOTE: Some animals or items can't be researched until your fame is at a certain level. 40 is the largest. If you find yourself at level 30-something and you've reached the zoo's size limit you can still continue to level up. Release an animal into the wild and then immediately adopt another one. Doing this over and over raises your fame level without having to add on to your zoo. Baby animals are particularly good for this as well.
