* ''TheLandBeforeTime'' - both the original movie and the [[{{Sequelitis}} thirteen sequels]] - has affection in the form of neck-crossing, snout-nuzzling, and the occasional platonic lick on the cheek. This can lead to a little confusion, as baby dinosaurs who are quadrupedal often use their snouts as hands in games like tag. One circumstance had Littlefoot briefly reacting to an unexpected "tag, you're it" from Ali as one might to an a AccidentalKiss.

* Puffins 'kiss' using a process called 'billing'. Basically, they rub both their beaks against each other in a way that is similar to kissing. Awwwwww.

* Nuzzling noses is apparently a common display of affection among the monsters in ''VideoGames/{{Undertale}}'', to the point where they even made a competitive event out of it. A BattleCouple you encounter were the runners-up one year.

The problem arises from the fact that, unless you're writing [[EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys monkeys and apes]] (or fish, we suppose, but there are usually NoCartoonFish) most animals just ''don't have the facial structure required'' for a human-type, lip-to-lip kiss. So having animals "kiss" like humans isn't necessarily plausible. So what do writers do?

* '''Come up with an alternate gesture with the same meaning.''' After all, real-world animals ''do'' have ways to express affection, so why not? Common choices for this one include: Licking (like [[AllAnimalsAreDogs dogs]]), rubbing noses/snouts, [[HeadbuttOfLove bumping foreheads]], or crossing necks (which can also substitute for a hug). Works with {{Talking Animal}}s, or more realism, tend to use this. Alternatively, it might just be more whimsical.

** [[spoiler: Elisa and Goliath share a very human kiss]] at the end of season 2. Well, it was more like she kissed him and he was too surprised to really respond ... but that didn't stop him from having a very goofy grin on his face after.
** [[spoiler: Elisa and Goliath kiss again]] in issue 7 of the Slave Labor Graphics comic book. This time she strokes his hair first, then he picks up and kisses her.

* Inverted by 'kissing fish'. What looks like a kiss is acutally [[HoYay two males]] [[FoeYay fighting for dominance]] and the right to breed with local females.
