Updated. This way the students from the graphics school will have more choice :) 

In case they want more choice, I've listed quite a few species at https://wildfiregames.com/forum/index.php?/topic/22944-fauna-requests/&tab=comments#comment-340159 I don't expect all of them to be created, obviously, but the more, the merrier :)

Or just tell them to create their favourite animal; any animal that meets the art department's standards should be considered for inclusion.

Thank you for the links, but no, there is not enough information there either. There are hundreds of turtle and tortoise species; so it's simply a matter which one(s) the artist decides to create; the specific name can be easily looked up then.

Okay, I was hoping the color being detailed for the parrot and the vulture might have given you a more clear idea on what species was wanted.

Having said that, I think there should be a separate list for flying birds (e.g. hawk), as opposed to edible birds (e.g. chicken, peacock).

Sound fair to me.

PS I see you've listed a hen and rooster. What's wrong with the current chicken?

Having a rooster would be nice, I always felt it was weird to only have female birds.

As for the chicken, well looking at the one in Hyrule conquest really made me wish we had more variations, and a better texture. It's too detailed to be taken as is and the license would likely be incompatible anyway.

I don't know how much control I will have over them, nor what they will choose :/ The teacher has the list though so she'll let me know. Also making an animal is a lot of time, so I'd be happy if I have the meshes. I don't expect to have more than three our four usable animals though, it's a small class.

That new list is huge !  I guess I could integrate all of this in the list, but that's gonna take a long time and I don't feel it being worth it. I'll just add the link at the bottom.

I think the current "hawk" in the game should renamed to be the Golden Eagle, while a new "Hawk" can be modeled and animated. The current Hawk is just too darn big to be a hawk. lol, it's Golden Eagle size though and is roughly the right color.

Yeah and it would seem the wings are incorrect too.
