Since and after the North American DLC confirmation, here's my wishlist.
  1. African leopard
  2. any baboon species that could bred and last in captivity
  3. any gibbon species, especially lar gibbon
  4. dromedary camel
  5. scimitar oryx (extinct in the wild)
  6. alpine ibex
  7. markhor
  8. any lynx species that could bred and last in captivity
Well that's all I could think of what to wish and hope for Planet Zoo to have. Well as long as that zoo game won't have those that couldn't bred and last in captivity, like indri and Javan rhinos. Any questions?

Oh boy, I only have 20 now? Well after picking 6 of 7 from South East Asia, I have picked none from the last two DLC. Gonna have to make some cuts and maybe adjust based on what we've gotten so far. New ones are noted via underline and *.

Reptilia:
1. Giant Girdled Lizard - would work in PZ - a grasslands lizard that lives in groups, another squamata that is not an exhibit animal or a monitor
2. Indian Narrow-headed Softshell Turtle - giant, mostly-aquatic freshwater turtle found in some zoos

Aves:
3. Red-crowned Crane - iconic crane species
4. Secretary Bird* - I find your lack of ground dwelling birds disturbing

Carnivora:
5. Spot-Necked Otter* - personal favorite, being more specific this time
6. Southern Sea Otter - also personal, but I'd say it has a greater case since we have a freshwater one
7. Leopard Seal - would be nice to get another Antarctic animal that is not a penguin.
8. Pallas Cat* - shifting focus onto small cats, and these are super unique and provide more central Asian animals, my next in line would be caracal

Artiodactyla:
9. Saiga - Asian plains bovid
10. Barasingha - Good for mixed species with peafowl, rhino, and elephant. Red Deer or Pere David's are good alternates.
11. Markhor - need to have more mountain species
12. Chacoan peccary - to round out pig species, preferred over other peccary due to conservation status, unique ecoregion, and physical features.

Perissodactyla:
13. Przewalksi's Wild Horse - most popular non-zebra equid.

Rodentia:
14. Capybara - largest rodent + another South American animals

Monotreme/Marsupials:
15. Platypus - this one speaks for itself
16. Short-beaked echidna - lets round out egg-laying mammals
17. Common Wombat - non macropod marsupial, personally prefer over Tasmanian devil
18. Goodfellow's Tree Kangaroo* - an arboreal macropod, switched from Matschie's on last list

Primata:
19. White-handed Gibbon - need a gibbon species, picked over Crested due to larger range over SE-Asia
20. Black Howler Monkey - another new world monkey

Oh yeah, I believe most of us had the same issue. If it were for me, I'd have no problem making a list of 50 even 100 essential animals that I'd like to see added but that's not likely to happen anyway (or maybe yes? who knows...)
 
So, just wondering, what happens with the animals on our previous list that are now already in the game? Can we replace them with other ones?

This would be an option, but it would lead to a never-ending situation of people re-adding more animals, making a potential new meta-wishlist iteration kind of pointless.
And if this happens, there would be some issues that I wouldn't know how to act upon to keep a decent level of uniformity.

If I allow replacements:
1) I would need to re-check each one of the original lists of the users that make new replacement submissions to see if they're indeed posting the amount of animlas they should. I wouldn't be surprised if some people submitted more than they would be allowed to.
I know this might sound as an excuse as it would just need my time to get it sorted, but I don't have all the time in the world these days...
2) Some people who should be supposed to make replacements might not ever post them. They might not even log in the forum ever again lol. This would add a bias towards the people who happen to check this topic if/when I indeed allow replacements (this could be good in a way, but still biased).
3) People who were lucky enough to see X animals added from ther original lists would inherently have X additional votes. Wouldn't this be unfair for the people who didn't get any of their requested animals? Genuinely asking here.

Either way, I'll start a new meta-wishlist thread just after the next DLC is released so new lists can be made. Chances are the '20' figure will remain the same or it might be even increased to 25.
 
I might be on an euphoric high with that awesome pack we got on our hands now, but I think it's totally plausible that we can still have 20 or even 25 more animals. The amount of love they put into the animals (in my opinion even a lot more than in previous packs) feels like someone finally noticed the potential of this game.

What did you mean by 20 to 25 more animals? Was that about how many more species left to be confirmed in Planet Zoo?
