* Shows up in the ''Film/ScoobyDoo'', ''Film/AlvinAndTheChipmunks'', ''Film/{{Garfield}}'', and ''WesternAnimation/YogiBear'' live-action films, where they don't have the excuse of being cartoon animals.
** A deleted scene from ''Film/JayAndSilentBobStrikeBack'' involving the Scooby Gang averts this.

** Subverted with a tortoise around the bumpers, whose clenched anus can ben seen beneath his shell. It's not normally visible from the player's position at the end of the table, however.

* The fact that Franchise/{{Pokemon}} lack visible attributes (with exception for Miltank's cow udders, of course) is likely a culmination of its simple visual art style and kid-friendly target audience (and GRatedSex). The actual {{Mons}} can probably be assumed to still possess their attributes… after all, that Berry fertilizer (made in part from their "[[NobodyPoops well, you know…]]") has to come from ''somewhere''…

* ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'' averts this quite horribly with a demon-possessed horse that tries to rape Farnese. Thankfully, it doesn't get to carry out its horrific intentions before [[spoiler:being messily decapitated by a pissed off Guts]].

* Noticeable in ''Film/TheChroniclesOfNarnia'' films with Aslan. When shot from behind we see nothing but his tail - in reality, a lion's testicles are very obvious from this angle.

* The mammary side of this trope is interestingly averted with the animatronic goats on the ''Ride/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' ride at Disneyland Park; this is a very rare case of goats being designed with udders.

This is usually a [[LawOfConservationOfDetail concession of realism for the sake of the artist]], as most artists would prefer to avoid drawing an animal's genitals or anus themselves, taboo or no taboo. It can also be a product of stylization, to which animals are especially prone, and which tends to remove unappealing or unimportant features, oftentimes to make them cuter (for example, stylized dogs tend to lack claws and lips). Othertimes (by which we mean most of the time), whether or not Fido has gonads is way beside the point, so it's simpler to leave them out unless you mean to draw attention for a narrative purpose or a cheap gag. That's not a form of censorship; it's just LawOfConservationOfDetail (just like how NobodyPoops).

On the other hand, when depicting mammals (aside from monotremes--platypuses[[note]][[PerplexingPlurals Platypi? Platypeese?]][[/note]] and echidnas), there's a common assumption that an animal's natural fur will adequately preserve the creature's modesty. However, observation of most real mammals will show that their fur is actually thinner in those places (so it doesn't get soiled when [[PottyEmergency nature calls]], and is easier to clean if it does). Also, many species' coats of fur are just too short to adequately conceal the features of their genital or anal area in the first place. Anyone who has seen a male pig or non-neutered male dog, for example, will have no doubt noticed the prominent pair of features between its rear legs. However, fur mostly concealing the animals genitalia is actually the case in some animals as a rule of thumb, mammals that live further North will have thicker and longer fur and are more likely to justify this as the longer fur protects their naughty bits from the cold.
