Phoenixes are the fifth species of animal available in Olympus, and the fourteenth in the Space Zoo. Like all Space Zoo animals, more phoenixes are unlocked progressively as the player upgrades the phoenix habitat. There are 8 different types of phoenix. They can be unlocked when the player upgrades their ship to Olympus 3.

- Wild: Phoenixes fly slowly and appear sprinkled around the stampede.
- When ridden: Phoenixes fly quickly above other wild phoenixes.
- When angry: Phoenixes swoop down, nearing the ground on their first swoop and hovering very low above the ground on their second swoop.
- In habitat: Phoenixes walk around, wobbling their tail. Occasionally they will preen themselves.
- Selected in habitat: Pheonixes will do a quick wing flap and return to the original position.
Phoenixes are useful, but tough to tame. They can smash anything but brontosauruses and Chinese dragons, and only last one hit; once the player hits an obstacle or an animal, they throw the player off. They are good distance carriers if the player thinks of them as an ostrich: a ground level fast running animal.
