Dragonflies are the fifth species of animal available in the Garden, and the twenty-second in the Space Zoo. There are 8 different types of dragonfly. Like all Space Zoo animals, more dragonflies are unlocked progressively as the player upgrades the dragonfly habitat. They can be unlocked when the player upgrades their ship to Garden 3.

- Wild: Dragonflies appear flying above the stampede, pausing every so often.
- When ridden: Dragonflies fly at a quick rate, with their wings vibrating rapidly.
- When angry: Dragonflies swoop low to the ground, each time rising high enough to clear animals and small rocks.
Taming dragonflies is difficult at first due to the frequent, irregularly timed pauses. To lasso dragonflies, it is important to come directly from behind and expect to have to lasso earlier than previously expected. Dragonflies can be seen to be the best long distance animal in Garden, with very good agility, small size, and low ground time. Its swooping can clear small rocks and animals, making it easy to traverse through tight spaces, while its speed means that the player can travel very far very quickly. The player is also unable to trigger the release of spiders when riding dragonflies.
