Happy New Year everyone! Once again with a new year comes a new challenge, and for the sixth installment of this competition, @Vision (the 2017 Challenge winner) and myself have settled on A̶u̶s̶t̶r̶a̶l̶i̶a̶n̶ ̶M̶a̶r̶s̶u̶p̶i̶a̶l̶s̶ Carnivora! Most members here seem to have at least some interest in Carnivores and this is a relatively well-represented group of mammals in zoos worldwide. Rules are as follows: 1. You have to actually see the animal, even if just for a second. You don't score if you visit a collection but don't see the animal (harsh, but fair); 2. Proof via photographs is not required, your word is your bond; 3. All entries must be presented in numbered list form, with scientific names included (simply to make it easier to keep track of and to avoid uncountable species being slipped in due to vagueness); 4. You have to see the animal via normal public access (zookeeper for the day or photography days behind the scenes do not count) during normal public opening hours (i.e. no scoring because you know the keeper and can get access before/after hours). Basically the species has to be seen as Joe Public would; 5. Any severely limited opening or private collections don't count for this challenge. Controversial yes, but see previous point and it isn't fair to include a handful of days these collections might be open to the public as this might logistically disadvantage a large number of people; 6. Only public zoological collections count, animals seen at farms or pet stores do not count. 7. Report/update your progress on this thread as you go along; 8. Only one subspecies per species can be counted; 9. Controversial entries due to splits will be discussed on a case-by-case basis; 10. Domestics do not count, the animals must be in a wild form. You can count a species that's been domesticated just as long as the animal you're looking at isn't (i.e. Grey Wolves do count but Domestic Dogs do not); 11. Hybrid animals do not count; 12. Wild animals do not count, all species must be seen in captivity under all the conditions listed above; 13. Any issues with any of the above rules is open to discussion but the rules are set and any decisions made are final; 14. Except for the unlikely event that someone gets to see all the species potentially see-able by 12/31/18 the winner will be deemed to be the person(s) who's seen the most at that date. As always, thanks to @Shorts for the original challenge idea and the general rules format. Good luck everyone, I look forward to seeing how everyone does!
