There's also audio clips with characters mentioning red ruffed lemurs, gila monsters, bonobos, Siberian tigers, and "pandas" (likely giant).

Edit: Forgot some genera. Also, this is not an exhaustive list. There's still genera missing given folder names that have been found.

I will try to breed one. If it is possible in the Beta I let you know
It shouldn't be possible. The only evidence of them being in the game is strings for their thumbnails. They have no full files like lions and tigers.

Speaking of Panthera, that's where our word panther comes from. So lions and tigers are as much panthers as snow leopards or jaguars.

Hopefully we will see some of these animals at some point (bison, macaque, hyena, ruffled lemurs, okapi ect)

and eventually maybe African Leopards and Jaguars, maybe coyotes ect.. I have a special place in my heart for coyotes, since we have a rescue "mutt" that was saved from a rural area with her siblings with her eyes still closed, turns out she's part golden retriever, part coyote :) had her DNA done, she's the sweetest.
Thrilled about the flamingos and hyenas. My local zoo has a lovely flock of flamingos in so many shades of pink, and they're so pretty.

Scratching my head about the cockroaches. Shudder :sick:
Thanks for sharing the list. I found some animals I'm excited to see. Some that are pretty much standard in a zoo game though are missing, in my opinion. But really, if they come with a dlc, I'm fine with it.

Bonobos? As happy as I am about that, I feel like Bonobos are not making sense without "whoohoo" animations. These species has sex as interactions A LOT

I’m so excited about the flamingos! I’ve got a soft spot in my heart for those funky pink guys. I wonder how much frontier’ll stick to realism in terms of feeding them? Most of the time their food is mixed into water in their exhibit!

I also think it would be cool if it were realistic enough that they changed colour based on the grade of food you feed them. So gray 1 they're more than grey/white colour, and only by feeding them grade 3 do they turn that glorious pink.
