* ''{{Disney/Zootopia}}'' finds some interesting ways to explore and subvert this issue. Because only ''mammals'' are anthropomorphized in this setting, obligate carnivores have plenty of guilt-free fish, poultry, reptile and amphibian options. On the other hand, prey species haven't forgotten the bad old days, and that leads to some serious issues with FantasticRacism.

* Predators in ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'' live alongside prey in relative peace and no longer eat them as sustenance. However, what predators do eat is never explained in the film. WordOfGod says that they eat food made out of insect protein and a fish market present in the film suggests that they may also eat seafood (only mammals in the film are portrayed as sentient and anthropomorphic).

* The trope is deconstructed as the premise for ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}.'' At the outset, Zootopia is a place where all manner of anthropomorphic animals (or mammals, at least) get along, which is completely normal for an animal cartoon. As the story progresses, however, it becomes increasingly clear that there is a current of unspoken racism in Zootopia and a power imbalance between the predator and prey species. This comes to a head when certain anthropomorphic animals stop acting like humans and become feral and aggressive. The central plot revolves around the mystery of why and how this happens. The topic of what predator species actually eat is never specified though.
** WordOfGod says the predators subsist on fish and invertebrates. Characters tend to use the word "mammal" the way we use the word "human"; apparently, all mammals in that world are intelligent, but no other animals are.

* In ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' Triton mocks humans for eating fish. That leaves the question of what do merfolk eat? According to later supplementary material they are vegan and eat foods like kelp, but that isn't shown in-series.
