Yay for Bison and even bigger Yay for bongos and pagolins
Also there is video at youtube where someone calims there are game's data which mentions:
Leopard (unspecified,most likely African)
Northern-white cheeked gibbon
Black howler monkey
I would take these with a pich of salt, but who knows.

Flightless Birds Folder
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.
why should it be weird?Its weird isn't it? I mean, people didn't really want hybrid animals, but there in the game apparently.
Hey, good to see this list.
why should it be weird?
I think Hybrid animals will look great. I don't think people not want it.
What did you mean when you meant people didn't want to? You mean people don't have such a demand(wish)?
If there are hybrid animals in the game, it makes me very happy. I love this part of Frontier. they do their job very well.
I say it every time, but they deserve it.
Heck, even with the animals we have now, I'm already happy. The base roster is the biggest of any zoo game, and probably will get bigger years after release.To those concerned about certain animal files not being in the data mine, that doesn't necessarily mean they aren't in the game, just not in the beta files. As mentioned from dataminers some animals get referenced without their species profile being explicit. Animals like the Red Deer are heavily mentioned but don't have a direct genera file, but through other sources (a deer folder, the various statue and prop references, we can assume this is a species). All things considered, datamines, leaks, etc. we are easily looking at nearly 100 animals, which actually is a really good marketing strategy. Advertise "50" and then actually include almost double. Based on everything we've collected we can add:
-Red Ruffed Lemurs
As a note, some of these species are up for debate still. Polar Bears, Peccaries, Howler Monkeys and other rumored animals like Panthers and Penguins are not 100%. Many of these animals are based on folder suggestions (such as "Large Bears", "Flightless Birds" or "Panthera" as a folder which could technically just refer to existing creatures).
While it is disappointing to not see any signs of Kangaroos or other Australian animals, or the potential for no arctic animals, it also seems to indicate they are a prime DLC target. Frontier appears to have chosen to go with a clever marketing tactic where, to mitigate disappointment, they promised less, so that even if they didn't deliver 100 animals by launch, any number added after 50 would be a bonus. With over 90+ so far (not including exhibit animals) it is hard to argue they didn't include a lot of diversity, even if it means some animals are missing in the base game. We can also still be surprised. Dik-diks, and Baboons weren't in the files at all and still got leaked, so its not a huge stretch to think there are still amazingly enough, more animals we still don't know about before launch.
I am thinking we an arctic/polar and Australian DLC pack (hopefully, each with their own unique themes) will be coming down the pipeline as time goes along.Very cool to read, I already had a feeling about many of the animals listed here.
And in my eyes it kinda gives insight what some of the future dlc's might.
The lack of polar bears & penguins kinda feels like a Polar Pack might be a future dlc.
The lack of Australian fauna might indicate a Down-Under pack.
No meerkats, otters, beavers, capybara's and other small mammals strongly makes me believe we will one day see a small mammal DLC.
Yes I think those are quite obvious future DLC's, along with an avian & aquatic DLC. Although the latter might be a few years away because if they are going to be made, I believe they are going to be very big DLC's.I am thinking we an arctic/polar and Australian DLC pack (hopefully, each with their own unique themes) will be coming down the pipeline as time goes along.
The reason I am speculation about a DLC that focusses on small mammals/animals is because like you said they are a great way to fill in your smaller area's between large habitats and they can be as big of a guest magnet as some of the larger animals.I'm a bit less convinced about "small mammals," but I am very passionate about this one as it could help to "flesh out" certain corners of the zoos. It's great to have the big habitats and the tiny exhibits, but really, wouldn't it be cool to have a handful of large outdoor African savannah exhibits with a few smaller habitats in-between (meerkats, aardvark, some monkeys, a bird or two in an aviary). Would help things feel a bit more realistic rather than just focusing on the large, "big ticket" animals.
And some of the animals you listed (otters and meerkats, specifically) are arguably just as big a draw at the zoo as their larger regional counterparts!
Unless they go full-on "Marine Mania," I don't think we'll have to wait so long for additional aquatic content. I can see them adding some exhibit animals that are fully aquatic with certain packs (e.g., piranhas as part of an "Amazonian" DLC pack). Similarly, I think the game already has the mechanics for things like seas, sea lions, otters, etc. Those would probably be a beast to animate, but the mechanics are there...Yes I think those are quite obvious future DLC's, along with an avian & aquatic DLC. Although the latter might be a few years away because if they are going to be made, I believe they are going to be very big DLC's.
I'm pretty hopeful for all of this! And I think some of what you've called out are among the most likely as far as habitat animals go. And I'm shocked that the ratel doesn't come up more!The reason I am speculation about a DLC that focusses on small mammals/animals is because like you said they are a great way to fill in your smaller area's between large habitats and they can be as big of a guest magnet as some of the larger animals.
I think a DLC like this could have great potential, add in besides the meerkats & otters som beavers, porcupines, cabybaras, patagonian mara's, armadillo's, tamandua's, fennecs, mouse deer, agouti, jerboa's sengi's, squirrel monkeys or other new world monkeys, hyraxes, raccoons, skunks, coati's, mustelids, wolverines, ratels, civets, perhaps even a sloth & bats. There are a lot of possibilities for a DLC like that
And just like we have exhibit terraria they could add in some exhibits for small mammals like sugar gliders, rodents, Insectivorans, small Lemuriformes, tamarins & marmosets. Some new foliage types, new building types and decorations and maybe something materials for nocturnal enclosures.
I think we might see a DLC like this in the future, perhaps not as extensive as I just discribed, but I think the smaller animals will get some attention in a future dlc pack, one can only hope!
