* A ''ComicStrip/FarSide'' comic depicts a male mosquito (obvious from his clothing) coming home from work and talking about how much blood he had to suck that day. Gary Larson knew this was inaccurate, but did it anyway [[RuleOfFunny just because]]. Larson apparently got a lot of mail about this particular comic. He was surprised that so many people were concerned about the male mosquito drinking blood, as opposed to the mosquitoes' ''wearing clothing.''

Removed as this is not actually a gender trait, but rather a trivia of the species that has nothing to do with the story (regardless of whether he could turn female, Marlin is Nemo's father, Nemo is Marlin's son, there's no bad gender traits)
* ''WesternAnimation/FindingNemo'' is apparantly about a father clownfish's journey to rescue his kidnapped son, Nemo. According to the film's prologue, the father clownfish is constantly worried about his son's survival because of his wife and all the other eggs being killed by a barracuda. In real life, all clownfish are born male, but [[GenderBender turn female if the dominant female dies.]]

* Abused quite a bit in ''WesternAnimation/Hero108''. For example, in "Peacock Castle" the team face off against a mesmerizing yet vain peacock queen. She and all her brethren are presented with the spectacular plumage of the male, but are all depicted as females (coupled with the fact that there are no plain peafowl present also suggest that they are all hermaphodites). Also in "Sheep Castle" the sheep leader has horns but presented as female.

* In the pilot of ''WesternAnimation/Kaeloo'', [[HulkingOut Bad Kaeloo]] was animated with a vocal sac. This has been fixed in later episodes.

In the notes section for calico and tortoiseshell cats the person most likely forgot to include tortoiseshell so I added it
This leads to a lot of ViewerGenderConfusion when you see male "cows" with udders, male calico or tortoiseshell cats[[note]]calico males do exist, but they either have a genetic defect - XXY chromosomes - and usually sterile, or are [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chimera_%28genetics%29 chimeras]] or [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mosaic_%28genetics%29 mosaics]]; and thus are extremely rare and extremely valuable[[/note]] [[PeacockGirl female "peacocks" with trains]], male kangaroos with pouches, red female cardinals, lionesses with manes, blood-drinking male mosquitoes, and so on. Prehistoric and extinct animals aren't immune; many times you'll see a "female" ''[[PteroSoarer Pteranodon]]'' with a long crest (an exclusively male trait). Barring the theory that perhaps these characters are meant to be {{transgender}}, we have to assume this is pure artistic license.
