Lemmykoopa24: Dino Zookeeper is an RPG for the Nintendo DS and the seventh entry in the LK24 series. It is about LK24 going on a mission with friends and along the way, he will resurrect prehistoric Super Mario species. This is also the debut of Kelsey Koopa.
Lemmykoopa24 is taking a walk with Purple Koopa Bro. when they saw a poster tacked to a nearby tree. They took it off and it read:
"Nothing to do these days? Come on down to the Mushseum! We are gathering young explorers to embark on a quest to an island to discover new fossils! If you are interested come to the Mushseum! We are accepting 7 more explorers."
LK24 looked at PKB. PKB looked at LK24. They looked at each other, straight in the eye, and nodded. Then they sped off towards the Mushseum. When they got there, they recognized Dashed, Zen Guy and Toadtool at the lobby. They waved to each other and sat in an empty chair. A few minutes later, Timer walked in with Clyde. Timer sat beside Zen Guy and Clyde just took a seat on the floor. The captain asked for their names and LK24 and PKB said theirs, and so did Timer and Clyde. Toadtool explained that they didn't have to say their names because he already took their names. Zen Guy was about to say something else, but then a big portal opened up out of nowhere and YoshiEgg Nook and M'Icho jumped out. The portal then closed. Clyde commented on the dramatic entrance and everyone chuckled. The director then wrote down their names after getting them from them. the director announced that they will be accepting one more person. The 9 of them waited for the last person to walk in. LK24 was taking a look around the room when in walked the most beautiful Koopa he had ever seen. She had a green sweater, a pair of jeans, pink shoes, and long blonde hair. She walked over and told the director her name and then sat down beside LK24. He looked over at her, and she looked up at him and smiled. Then she looked back while the director explained their voyage. LK24 tried to pay attention, but he was too lost in the girl. When he directed them to get on the plane, everyone got up and found their seats. The plane then took off. It took over 5 hours to get to the island, but they managed to make it. When they landed, they got off the plane and took a look around. They spotted Nugg at the campground and ran over to him. Nugg told them that he was put in charge of the head guide and that he was the leader. He told everyone what they would be doing and how to do it. He selected Zen Guy and Toadtool as his other guides and told them that they were in second-in-command of the team. He chose the rest of them as diggers. They then began their jobs. LK24 and PKB decided to start their search at a small hill. They got out their pickaxes and started digging. They dug for a few minutes when they hit something solid. LK24 helped PKB pull it out and it wasn't a bone, but a large, purple machine. They brought it over to Toadtool. Toadtool looked at it for a while and told them to wait a second. He then went inside a tent and pulled out a replica of a Goombasaurus Rex. He put it in the machine and pressed a button. It flashed and then the door opened. Then, the structure walked out. But it was no longer a structure, it was a real live Goombasaurus Rex now. Toadtool was amazed. Then, all of a sudden, a meteor hit the campground. Nugg shouted to everyone to take cover. When the assault stopped, they saw a UFO floating over the site. Then, Shroobster hopped out. He told everyone that they're exploration team was going to fall and that theirs was going to conquer the island with an army of Fungusaurs. He then laughed and flew away. LK24 pumped his fist and starting walking away. PKB asked where he was going and LK24 said he was going to stop the other exploration team. LK24 then continued walking. PKB followed him, then Clyde followed them too. Soon, everyone except Zen Guy, Toadtool, Nugg and the girl Koopa was following him. Nugg shouted after LK24 telling him that he would give him hints via phone. LK24 shouted a thank you and continued walking. He then started running, and soon, he was off to stop the other exploration team and their plot.
