New 20 essential habitat animals META-WISHLIST

After roughly half a year, and following the requests made by numerous forum users, I'm setting up this thread in order to start another 'Essential animals meta-wishlist' where I record users' animals wishlists and put them all together on a meta-wishlist. Given that we've gotten 3 DLCs since I started the previous thread; this time around I ask you all to please post a list of just 20 habitat animals.

The more people participating, the bigger the sample size will be so better conclusions can be drawn. I’m writting down every user who posts their list in order to avoid having repetitions. I intend to keep this updated as much as I can. Last update: 18th October, 2021

The spirit and basic rules of the thread will be similar to those of the first one. Which means:
  • For the sake of keeping the same wishlist structure, I ask you to post your 20 essential habitat animals that you’d like to see in the game. Lists with anything above 20 animals will be discarded.
  • Exhibit animals will be omitted from the main meta-wishlist. Exhibit animals include arthropods, amphibians, small reptiles (< iguanas), small fish and mouse-size mammals.
  • Flying birds and bats usually housed in aviaries will be omitted from the main meta-wishlist. Flying aviary birds include birds of prey, parrots, Columbiformes (pigeons), Passeriformes (small birds), Charadriiformes (gulls) and so on. Mainly ground-dwelling or semi-aquatic birds (mainly Waterfowl, Galliformes, Ratites, Pelecaniformes, Penguins, etc.) will be added to the list.
  • Extinct species will not be considered.
  • As a general rule of thumb, animal species is the preferred category for animal submissions. Subspecies from already in-game animals are also accepted. Subspecies from animals that are not in-game will automatically be allocated to the superior species category. Specific domestic animals breeds are also accepted.
  • To simplify data collection, those answers that include several species in one slot (eg.: 1. Any species of sloth) will be automatically treated as a single animal and added to the most requested species inside that generic animal group (eg. in this case: Brown-Throated Three-Toed Sloth). This obviously leads to an underestimation of the total key requested animals.

As you can see, a total of 383 animals have been considered 'essential' by at least one forum user.

TL;DR: Post your 20 essential habitat animals wishlist here. I will record each wishlist and add it to the Meta-list. Aviary and exhibit animals won’t be taken into consideration.

PS: Check darthquell's new thread for Essential exhibit animals and Spiderhawk's thread for Essential aviary animals!

@random goat Really appreciate that you are creating a new meta list. A lot of time has passed since the first one and species that many of us voted for have already been implemented into the game! Or like me, some of us may have shifted some of our wants over time. I for one, am now wanting species that ensure new rigs and animations with the explosion of modding over the past year. For example, as cool as a leopard would be, I also know that with modding breakthroughs these species can now be made by us the players through using other big cats as a base. (I say this though not to discourage others from including a leopard within their list but instead to just explain my shifting wants from Frontier for the official animal roster)

With that said, could you maybe change the rules of this list to allow for a more broad selection of habitat animals? The last meta list was created before we knew that Frontier was capable of creating aquatic species and are now likely capable of flying creatures to some extent. Proof of this can be seen in Frontier’s recently announced Jurassic World Evolution 2 game, that has already advertised its inclusion of both air-borne and fully aquatic species. The same sort of thing could also be said for small mammal species. Today with the official announcement of the Africa pack, we now know that extremely small habitat species are possible because of the Meerkat (which I am SO excited for!) Could you consider loosening this list’s species rules so that users are capable of voting for a broader assortment of animals? I hope none of this comes across as nitpicking, your meta lists and the dedication you have given to them has been amazing! I also think your first meta list has truly effected which species Frontier has been creating for us (which is why I’m making this request as your lists seem to have a real impact!)
 
1. North Island brown kiwi.
2. Tasmanian devil.
3. Great white pelican.
4. Bolivian black-capped squirrel monkey.
5. Capybara.

8. Iberian lynx.
9. California sea lion.
10. Asian small-clawed otter.
11. Emu.
12. Little blue penguin.
13. Amur leopard.
14. Addax.
15. Hamadryas baboon.
16. Pere David's deer.
17. Red river hog.
18. Sumatran rhinoceros.
19. Northern white-cheeked gibbon.
20. Serval.

I just wanted to point out a couple of things here - the JWE2 announcement does not prove they can do free-flying birds. The screens we've seen and the UI we've seen could still refer to a similar aviary set-up to the Return to Jurassic Park DLC which is functionally similar to the PZ exhibits. I don't think it's right to assume they've perfected free-flying system, especially considering how different JWE is from PZ, even in the sequel. And the meerkat does not mean the doors are open to any and all tiny animals in PZ; many species of small mammal would likely still require special containment to be viable.

On a personal note, I can't be the only one that thinks leaving certain things to the modders is a terrible idea. None of their creations have the same level of detail as Frontier animals as yet - I'd much rather get a Frontier-made leopard than a modded jaguar.
