The Switch Animals Player Card

The Switching Animals Slots.

Switching Animals is the main source in Animal Jam for switching to another animal. It allows players to change between the animals they have bought. Players can switch by clicking the button beside their animal's icon in the bottom left corner of their screen.


Non-members can only have two animals to switch between; however members can now have up to 1000 animals to switch between. Each new animal costs 1,000 Gems, 10 Diamonds, or 5 Diamonds, and fills up one slot. Recycling an animal gives the player 500 Gems and gets rid of the animal, freeing up one slot.


When switching, the player's animal glows green and disappears, a green spiral appears on the ground, a sound clip plays, and a small ball of the same color flies into the air. It then hovers for a moment, then drops back down. Underwater, the animal disappears, and water swirls. The swirl pops, and the animal switched to turns green, then back to normal. The player's name-tag changes to their new animal's name, and then their new animal appears.


  • While switching, players are unable to change their colors, equip items or go to another room on the map. The player must wait for the Switch Animals Icon to turn back to blue before they can perform any of these actions.
  • All of the player's animals can wear all the clothes that they have bought, allowing the same item to be worn by two or more animals. This also goes for pets.
  • Switching animals while on a slide will allow the player to sit North, South, East or West, directions not normally possible with the "Actions" menu.
  • There is a glitch where the player's animal will appear to be running in place if they change animals and then quickly move back and forth with their arrow keys, stopping when the green ball is about to hit the ground.
