      Absolutely masterful! The species list is wonderful, as well as unique within the country! :D
    • UngulateNerd92
      Looks like a really nice layout. @SivatheriumGuy what made you decide on those species and on placing them in these particular spots?
    • SivatheriumGuy
      @UngulateNerd92 Here you go:
      1-This exhibit is currently home to Patagonian and Californian sea lions. I personally feel like they don't fit the park so I decided to add the European otter since it's an animal that is part of various breeding programs and fits the semi-aquatic mammal spot.
      3-This is currently a paddock that is used to house surplus animals or domestics. I feel like Vicuñas and Darwin's rheas fit this paddock because of their size.
      4-There is plenty of space in this area for a brand new exhibit, so since I didn't want to get rid of the llamas (They have very nice colorations because of the park's rocks), and Patagonian maras are always nice, I decided to put them there since they are also close to the vicuñas.
      5-Brazza's and gorillas already live in this exhibit, so I decided to add another primate that can live alongside both these species and participated in a breeding program. The best fit being the White-naped mangabey.
      6-I wanted to place a small nocturnal house precisely in the Diane Fossey exposition that you can find in the gorilla house. The exposition would be kept the same, but the whole background would be home to the galagos, bats, and springhares and a smaller exhibit for the rats can be found inside a hut.
      7-This exhibit is currently home to llamas, but I wanted it to house an Asian ungulate. I thought that tufted deer would fit perfectly, but right now I'd also add another species of deer, such as some sika deer or eld's deer.
      8-9-These two exhibits are supposed to be the current tiger exhibit. The tiger population inside the park is currently very unsustainable, so the best thing would be reducing the population and swapping it for subspecific specimens. There is enough space if we cut the exhibit in two parts, and I thought that housing a pack of dhole in a part and a breeding pair of Siberian tigers in the other would make sense.
      10-Keeping the Asian theme, there is a small grassy area right next to the tiger viewing deck, where a pair of red panda and a pair of muntjac can perfectly be housed.
      11-The current gaur paddock is pretty big, so adding axis and blackbuck would spice things up.
      12-There is a big foresty parcel right in front of the gaurs, and having bongos and forest buffalo grazing in this exhibit would be great.
      13-This area is now currently home to a lot of disused space and the rescued bear pens. The idea would be moving these rescued bears to the current bear exhibit, reducing the current populations and the park just focusing on keeping rescued bears. The current rescue bear paddocks would be upgraded and African wild dogs would return to the park.
      15-The African fauna paddock gets new old friends, blue wildebeest, scimitar-horned oryx, and sable antelopes. Springbok would also be a great fit.
      16-The current farm area is really bad. The plan would be renovating the whole thing and actually making it something useful and showcasing local fauna. The donkeys are kept because I didn't know what could have been done with their exhibit, and I just like donkeys.
      17-The current paddocks where the livestock was kept feeling like they stole ground for more interesting species, but I just didn't want to take them out. There is plenty of space for two paddocks to be built behind the restaurant, so that's the best place for the Tudancas and Monchinas.
      19-I wanted to have a big aviary and actually keep bird species that fit the park's feel. They can also take part on breeding programs.
      20-The pygmy hippos have access to two paddocks and plenty of land area, so a group of three sitatungas would be a nice addition to the exhibit.
      21-This exhibit currently houses a pair of spotted hyenas, so I wanted to add in a carnivore species that does better in pairs than in pack. I went with the striped hyenas because I think they fit and I adore hyenas.
      23-There is a lot of empty space at the back of the hyenas and cheetahs, so two species that really fit the park had to be added here, geladas and nubian ibex.
      25-There is also more epty space once you get past the wolves, and the spotted hyenas could be moved to this parcel as well as expanding their clan.
      26-Despite liking Bennett's wallabys, I prefer Yellow-footed rock wallabys. :p
      27-This part of the park is actually an old exhibit that used to house mandrills, pumans and even leopards. I'd personally love to revive this exhibit, and Hanuman's langurs are a really attractive species that would give life to the area.
      28-Addition of Saharan barbary sheep alongside the guinean baboons as part of a breeding program.
      29-Non-subespecific lions could be phased out and add a breeding group of asiatic lions because of breeding programmes.
      31-The now empty yak exhibit would make a great home to takins and gorals, species that I personally feel like they fit the park perfectly.
      32-This is currently an empty roundabout, but could be fenced around and house a breeding herd of Pere David's deer, an species that the park used to keep.
      34-This is the current European bison exhibit, but I wanted these exhibits to have an African theme. I swapped the bison and Somali wild asses around, and also added beisa oryx and lesser kudus to the paddock.
      35-The exhibit that currently houses gemsbok and used to hold warthogs and collared peccaries is perfect to house suids, so the red river hog is a great addition to the park. I also added Bat-eared foxes in the exhibit just to spice up the mix and make it more interesting.
      36-Blesbok, greater kudu, and roan antelope join the parks Grevy's zebras.
      37-The huge exhibit that currently only houses a herd of dromedary and four addax should be expanded by giving another chance to the Cuvier's gazelle and the newcoming of the Mhorrs gazelle, keeping the African desert theme.
      38-I decided to expand the elephant exhibit even more by connecting it with the one that currently houses watussi. The new additions to the African elephants and kafue lechwes would be the gemsbok that already live in the park, common impalas and black wildebeest that would join the whole paddock. Cape buffalo would also be part of the exhibit, their stables would be located in the part where the watussi currently live and they would be able to access the whole exhibit as well.
      39-Going back to lago Sexta, both hippo and zebra paddocks would be connected and nyalas would join the mix. The hippos mostly hang out at the shores of the lake, and the zebras and nyalas would be encouraged to use the most steep parts of the paddock to prevent conflict.
      40-Cabárceno has been hinting that they are planning on getting black rhinos some day, and the paddock in front of the hippo exhibit is just perfect for these animals. They would also be joined by nile lechwes to round up the parks african antelope collection.
      41-Despite not being the most interesting animals, I adore water buffalo, so I felt like I should keep them alongside some kind of asian ungulate, these being the nilgai and hog deer.
      42-One of my favourite animals in the park used to be the warthog, but sadly, they are no longer found in the park. If I had to take them back, I'd house them with the white rhinos.
      43-The "fauna iberica" exhibit would be kept the same, but with the return of the iberian wild boars and the addition of the Spanish ibex. This exhibit also starts a trend of "Eurasian animals" area.
      44-The paddock that currently houses Tudanca cattle could be given better use of by the addition of eastern kiangs, bactrian camels (already in the park) and bactrian deer, species that really fit the park.
      45-46- These exhibits are currently empty and used to be home to the somali wild asses when they first arrived. With proper renovating of the fences, these two exhibits would make perfect housing for white-lipped deer and eurasian elk, two species that if they had to be kept at a Spanish zoo, that would be Cabárceno. The elk would also be joined by roe deer.
      47-The only exhibit that doesn't fit the "Eurasian" theme. This currently houses the Monchino livestock, and American bison and wapitis would make for a perfect substitute in this paddock.
      48-This exhibit was the proper home for several wild boars, but they are no longer found in the park and plenty of llamas have taken over. This exhibit would be great for bharals, an amazing species that would perfectly fit the park and I'd love to see someday. I thought on housing them with the takins and gorals, but them getting their own exhibit makes more sense.
      49-The current somali wild ass exhibit. As sayd before, European bison and Przwalskis wild horses are housed here to keep a theme. The European bison is a very charismatic species in the Cantabria, so is the Przwalski's wild horse, since the Altamira cave depicts sayd species in there. They would also be kept because of breeding reasons.
      50-As for the last exhibit, we would have a renovated exhibit where the jaguars once lived. I'd net the whole thing and then add various climbing frames to the rocks, and then release a pair of amur leopards. I like jaguars, but a cold climate leopard makes plenty more sense in a park like Cabarceno.

      I'd also separate the park in four different section. It used to be divided this way some years ago, but that concept has been lost with time. This would be my divison.
      -La mina: The most varied when it comes to animal species, having African (white rhinos, gorillas, cobras,...), Asian (gaurs, leopards, kiangs,...), Europe (otters, red deer, bison,...) and America (vicuñas, maras, wapitis,...). This zone would take from point 1 to point 12, and then be re-taken from 41 to 50.
      -Los osos: Focus on African (giraffes, hippopotamus, african wild dogs,...) and European fauna (bears, wildcats, lammengeriers,...), mostly the Iberian peninsula. From point 13 to point 20, as well as points 39 and 40.
      -Las rocas: This area mostly focuses on carnivores (lions, hyenas, wolves,...), but you can also find various animals that could be found around rocky areas (wallabys, takins, baboons,...). This area takes points 21 to 32.
      -Los elefantes: Every animal in this area can be found in Africa. Mostly focused on ungulates (buffalo, antelopes, zebras,...), but you can also find the little bat-eared fox and the main animal of the area, the African elephant. This area takes from point 33 to point 38.
