    Question Gender switch of animal babies in Windows/Mac Zoo too?

    Dear Windows/Mac Zoo managers,
    Did anyone of you ever noticed to get the wrong gender of animal babies once your newborn leaves the Nursery?
    So you ordered a Raccoon baby girl and instead of that you got a Raccoon baby girl?
    Or any other animal of this list;
    Lion
    Giraffe
    Elephant
    Kangaroo
    Camel
    Ostrich
    Gazelle
    Fennex Fox
    Hippo
    Platypus
    Pelican
    Tapir
    Bear
    Skunk
    Raccoon
    Muskox
    Lynx
    Walrus
    Snow Monkey
    Snowy Owl
    Koala
    Black Panther
    Macaw?

    Reason to ask is because this happens in the New Zoo when a baby girl after delivery by helicopter suddenly appears to be a boy.
    I really like to find out if this 'issue' exists in the Old Zoo or is just a program fail in new Zoo.
    In any case, I never noticed it before.

    Of course is this just small thing and I really hope you get acces to new Zoo soon.
    (Or at least a permanent solution on the unexpected disappearance of your Zoos)

    I am on android and my zoo is completed. Never did I get the wrong baby. Never read a single message from someone reporting that with the old zoo either.

    I wasn't even aware they came with genders. All mine are gender neutral apart from Bob.

    Per the Windows system, which is the same as the old iOS/Android/Kindle zoo, you can't "order" animals.

    No but you could still breed a baby and have the other one show up.

    The mechanics are still the same. Complete a baby; deliver a baby.

    Ruuds question is asking if the baby delivered is the one completed (either with cards collected or gems in the nursery).

    Ah, I may have misunderstood the question.

    Nevada, thank you for the approval.
    What I'm researching seems like a minor problem in the new zoo, but can ultimately become very disturbing.
    In old zoo my last nursed animal was a Fennex Fox baby girl. After The Update 'she' looks much more like her dad...

    And good research also means excluding things

    Why is it disturbing? Rather than a minor issue?

    I’m struggling to see to why it matters. Surely they’re all your babies at the end of the day and you love them all regardless of gender LOL

    So you get a boy instead of a girl or vice versa. Poor little thing still needs your love even though You wanted a different gender it LOL

    I started to mention this programming error (because that is the ONLY thing that annoyed me!) just to get it fixed!
    And fixed it is, so the issue was serious enough for our Devs to give it the attention I have asked for.

    So case closed IMO

    I was glad Ruud made me aware of it as otherwise it would have been disturbing to me when it happened, in the sense I would have worried there was a fault in my game. As I am sure other player's would be too.

    ETA You can see a reply I gave when Ruud first brought it up here, I made a joke of it but when anything doesn't work as it's supposed to it concerns me
