Hi @Rosemary

Great question! This can happen when one or more of the animals being merged don’t have a species listed in their metadata. Once you add the species on their individual pages, they’ll receive a Codex-ID and you should be able to go back merge the individuals.

Thanks Anastasia, that one worked, and I was able to merge.
