* It is {{Implied|Trope}} that ''only'' mammals in ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'' are anthropomorphic, while all others are the same as in real life. The film likely avoids actually showing non-anthropomorphic animals because [[WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief this would be extremely distracting]]--the closest it gets is a few signs indicating [[NoCartoonFish fish are sold as food]]

** The only non-anthropomorphic animals shown are house flies flying around Yax the yak.

** The show gets even weirder when you consider the source material. Baloo, Louie and Shere Khan were characters from Disney's ''Disney/TheJungleBook'', and were pretty anthropomorphic to begin with. Suddenly it's the 1930s, and the same characters are wearing clothes, flying planes, etc. Their designs changed a bit as well; Baloo traded his claws for fingers, but otherwise looked the same. Khan on the other hand went [[FourLegsGoodTwoLegsBetter from a quadruped to a biped]], a much more noticeable change.

* With all of this in mind, ''Disney/TheLionKing'' level in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'' is just a carnival of Furry Confusion. Donald is temporarily a non-anthro bird who can ''fly'' and Pete is a non-anthro cat (more specifically, a lion). What makes it worse is the fact that Donald comments on Sora's transformation (into a lion) while avoiding any mention of Goofy's or his own. It should be mentioned that Donald's non-Anthro form is identified, in the ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' literature as "Bird Donald". Try to read that without having a PsychicNosebleed.

** One particularly {{Nightmare Fuel}}errific Donald Duck comic strip had him going ''duck hunting''. Like [[http://disneyweirdness.blogspot.com/2009/11/this-only-leads-to-further-questions.html this one]]. The "confusion" part in "Furry Confusion" is especially apparent in panels 2 to 4. In the picture, the ducks seem to notice him in passing as well.

** And the CarlBarks comic [[http://disneycomics.free.fr/Ducks/Barks/show.php?num=18&loc=1952/W_OS_422-02&s=date "The Gilded Man"]] shows Donald and the nephews being quite shaken and disturbed by the sight of stuffed normal ducks sitting on a shelf. This is quite unusual as most Barks stories treat the Ducks as stand-ins for humans, and this is, in fact, one of the only times they seem to recognize their relation to non-anthropomorphic ducks, other than the times Barks has them refer to "us Ducks and humans"...

* Donald's nephews are members of the Junior Woodchucks, who are Boy Scout parodies. The girl scout parodies are the Junior Chickadees. So, are they named after the animals, or a species of anthropomorphic people? And what happens when a anthro woodchuck joins the Junior Woodchucks, or a chickadee the Chickadees?

** On the subject of dinosaurs, ''WesternAnimation/TheGoodDinosaur'' features talking non-avian dinosaurs, but also birds (including chickens with theropod hands) that are non-sentient and kept as pets or even livestock. Seeing as birds are considered modern day dinosaurs, it seems odd that the birds in the movie wouldn't be alongside their non-avian relatives as sentient lifeforms. Even weirder, a group of pterosaurs--which, contrary to popular belief, are NOT dinosaurs--are also shown to be sentient and capable of speech (and insane).
