No Penguins or Pandas? They made up a large portion of my Zoo Tycoon 2 Zoos. Ah well, guess just going to have to wait for the DLC. Seems weird to complain about a list of 101 animals though (that also has no dalmatians :wink: )

Indeed there are 9 subspecies of giraffe, with differences on their color pattern. But that's just that most mammalogists like to extremely subdivide their species. Same goes for bears, tigers, lions...

Anyway, where are the other big cats, like the snow leopard?
It just seems stupid that they've made more than 10 kinds of lions and tigers instead of including leopards, pumas, jaguars, cheetas etc.
