Hello everyone. Happy Hump Day.

Anyway, I'm looking for some good recommendations for 2p (can scale) animal themed games. My girlfriend is highly attracted to theme, animals being one of the top. Any help is greatly appreciated. It doesn't have to be light or heavy. We play everything, Dominant Species being our current favourite.

Thanks everyone.

Tooth & Nail is a great 2-4 player game.

I've also heard good things about Mice and Mystics.

Games I have and have played 2 player:

Takenoko (panda)
Mice & Mystics (mice)
Shear Panic (sheep)
Hey That's My Fish (penguins)
Chateau Roquefort (mice)
Salmon Run (salmon w/ bears)
Through the Desert (camels)
Pass the Pigs (pigs)
Elk Fest (elk)

Games that probably need more than 2 players and/or aren't as good:

Crows (crows)
Antler Island (moose)
Black Sheep (sheep, cows, chickens, horses, pigs)

Games I don't have but fit:

Formula E (elephants)
Duck Duck Go (ducks)

I love animals and theme is likewise important to me, so Bombay was another I added to the collection almost entirely because of the little elephant minis. +1 for Hey, That's My Fish! (at least the edition I have, the second I believe?, has amazing penguin minis) and Takenoko (who doesn't love the panda?!). All lighter than DS but fun nonetheless.

And there are others. I remember Lord Rahvin or the Gentlestream guy liking it and I have it here.
