A Date at the Zoo
Collect from Jungle Habitat 1 Time
Get 2 Disposable Cameras
Collect from your Zoo Cafeteria 3 Times
Ruth wants to see the Ostriches (she says they're like "tall pigeons that can't fly"), so you'll need to help her do just that by asking your friends for two cameras via a general news feed post. Meanwhile, if you're looking to plow through the Zoo Cafeteria task quickly, just remember to only supply the Cafeteria with Goods, rather than multiple businesses at once. That way, your citizens have to go to the Cafeteria, as there are no other businesses open in your town at the time! Finish this first goal, and you'll earn 480 coins.
I Love Zoos
Supply 25 Businesses
Have 1 Savannah Habitat
Collect from the Savannah Habitat 5 Times
To earn the Savannah Habitat, you must first unlock all of the animals in the Jungle Habitat. From there, you'll simply need to wait a few hours between collections to eventually make it to five. The reward for finishing this goal is the Ostrich Buddies decoration, which offers a 5% bonus to surrounding homes or businesses.
Have 1 Ostrich House in your City
Harvest 35 Corn
Get 8 Ostrich Eggs
The Ostrich House seems to be the Ostrich Buddies decoration from the last goal, but with a different name. That being the case, you should be able to find it in your inventory, and can place it into your town for free. Meanwhile, corn takes an entire day to grow, so you might plant some corn early, if you know that this goal is coming, so that you don't have to wait later. Finishing off this final goal in the series (as of this writing) grants you 19 XP (I'll leave you to decide whether or not that's enough).
You know, these goals really weren't that odd. It seems like through them, Ruth and Edgar were able to have a great day at the zoo, even if Ruth is a bit of an eccentric in her obsession with ostriches. Perhaps that's why it was an odd day? Either way, if you're looking for something to do in your city, aside from decorating it for Zynga's beachfront contest, why not give these goals a go?

What do you think of these goals? Should we receive a special, exclusive reward for each of the goals, rather than just the second? Sound off in the comments.
