Hinds are the eleventh animal species in the Space Zoo, and the second species of animal available in Olympus. There are 8 different types of hind. Like all Space Zoo animals, more hinds are unlocked progressively as the player upgrades the hind habitat. They can be unlocked when the player upgrades their ship to Olympus 1.

- Wild: Hinds are found moving slowly in a forward direction, seen occasionally before 2000m but very frequently after 2000m.
- When ridden: Hinds speed up slightly however their behaviour is not too different from wild behaviour.
- When angry: Hinds accelerate rapidly, jumping approximately every two seconds.
- In habitat: Hinds spend most of their time standing around with their heads down, grazing. They will occasionally walk around and lift up and shake their heads.
- Selected in habitat: Hinds rear up onto their hind legs and shake their front hooves around, bleating to the sky.
Hinds can be used early on as distance carriers, although their jumps make them noticeably more difficult to control than ostriches. Hinds are more useful later on, with their easy control when not angry and slower speed and ability of the player's lasso size not reducing when landing on them making them very good for travelling long distances which can be achieved by jumping from hind to hind.

- Hinds were released on the 18th of August 2017 in version 1.10.0 along with Olympus and the remaining original Olympus species.
- Like that of many other animal species, the habitat upgrades contained an error in which the apostrophe in the word "doesn’t" was missing in-game.
- This was corrected in version 1.15.0 on the 21st of March 2018.
