Okay so this is a weird sounding request but hear me out: I need up to 73 animals for a game and I’m not sure I can come up with that many critters. Suggest to me your favorite, ideally uncommon, real-world animals.

Okay I have enough animals now. Thanks to everyone who replied! Some really great suggestions.

For what it’s worth, folks on Mastodon got WAY more exotic.

Ironically nobody there mentioned mastodons.

But dang I’m impressed, y’all know a lot of animals.

Incidentally I got around 200 suggestions. Lots of dupes but that's fine, those are just the more popular ones.

Incidentally, axolotls were the most popular. :) I'm also surprised at how many people mentioned dugongs (and if you count them along with manatees they tie for first)

Also for what it's worth a lot of the suggestions aren't going to be suitable for the game's purpose (and there's WAY more than I can possibly do!), but thank you everyone who made suggestions regardless of whether they get used!

Oh and the 200 was *after* removing duplicates. :)

@fluffy thylacine! Technically they’re classified as extinct but it is hypothesized that some may still survive in the Australian wilds.
