Ranking the areas still requiring animals

I’ce read the article about wild donkeys in Arizona and New Mexico and how they are saving the population of cougars there.
 
Best represented region by far and nothing comes close to it.
I'd argue and say North America is probably the best represented region. We have practically all the big names and many oddballs/fillers to use. What makes it cruel is that we're still missing 1 key animal: the black bear. With that, then I believe it'd be complete
 
Id still put europe below North America and Africa as its lacking in variety with allmost only ungulates when it still got some good additions like birds in the white stork, western cappercallie and a bunch of ducks, rodents with the red squirrel, european rabbit and alpine marmot and even mustelids with the pole cat, european mink and a marten all fitting quite well into the game, but overall it came a far far way.
My biggest hope rn would be the marmot, as its more or less a perfect clone of the prariedog and would nicly round out the alps aswell as one of the birds but if europe wouldnt get anything anymore, id also be cool with that.

But then north America still doesn't have a bird, Europe at least has 2 usable birds not counting the chicken.

Yeah, but at the same time there's only a small handful of birds I can think of, and it's highly unlikely any will come, as much as I'd want them:
  • Whooping crane
  • Greater roadrunner
  • Wild/Domestic turkey
  • Duck (I like ruddy ducks)
  • American flamingo
The duck and flamingo are the highest demanded, so those are more likely. But even then, at this point it still is more likely we'd get the ABB before a NA bird, and I still don't think we'd get the ABB😢

EDIT: forgot about geese. I dunno, it all depends on what the next pack brings, I guess
 
Thats the funny thing I always see.
EU players will never be satisfied with their region unless literally every single mammal and habitat suitable bird will be added.

I mean until very recently it was super bare bones, the boar, wisent and swan made it an actual region. But only really if your okay with using stand ins in form of the bear, wolf, otter, beaver and the like.

Plus the never satisfied is just a common theme for planet zoo, there will always be another most requested animal.

I mean, you need to be very biased toward africa and NA to say that they are less representad than europe, when the only thing that the latter need is a bird, and the other need ultra niche stuff.

Its not that i want every animal i just want variety to build for.
Its not a chamois for a third goat or the roe deer as the 5. deer im wanting but things that actually are different from what the region currently has to offer.
I have no problems with using stand ins like the beaver, but especally when there are no suitable stand ins then thats just meh.
+ its not like the animals would be redundant in the greater game either, as most of them either cross over into other continents or are something new like our first stork, groose, marten, squirrel, duck and in many cases either the nominal species or/and the most sensible choice.
The white stork is the stork with the largest range and is only rivaled in its icon status by the marabou, mallard ducks are THE duck, the capercallie is the largest grouse, the european polecat would bring a unique body type while also being a stand in domestic and potentially the most colorfull, the alpine marmot is the largest marmot and one of the largest rodents, etc,
Only martens and squirrels are reasonably outclassed by other variants with a larger SEA squirrel and the more colorfull yellow throated marten, but even then red squirrel, beech and pine marten all got arguments to be made for their inclusion and would finally bring a dedicated climber to europe.
This isnt just another deer or bear situation like for example NA but there are still many unqiue and iconic animals that europe has to offer.
NA also got some interesting additions left like the NA porcupine, roadrunner, california quail, roseate spoonbill and a few more but for some reason they are just very rarely talked about cause they are seen as niche additions, which is a shame imo.
In general we are at a point where i care less about where the animal comes from as every continent even South america has a decent enough roster to build varried areas, but more about if the animal would add something cool and interesting in general and squirrels, ducks, storks, a large grouse, a more ferret like mustelid and a few more just happen to have their imo best choices living in europe.
