* 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.

* Though the card game ''Beasty Bar'' more or less plays this straight, several characters such as [[https://pbs.twimg.com/media/B0BIIpRIcAEscJZ.jpg the Skunk]] are depicted with clearly visible anuses.

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.

* Averted in ''VideoGame/Metro2033''. Nosalises have fully visible genital orifices (males seem to have a hemipenis, as only a small hole is visible in the front of their groin), and every mutant has an anus. However, their attributes can only be seen if you're actively looking for them in corpses; you'll be too busy shooting the monsters otherwise.

* Amaterasu, the main character of ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}, has a spot under her tail that appears to be an anus, averting this trope. However, it gets zigzagged, as she doesn't have any sort of indicator of gender (no vagina or nipples).

This is technically TruthInTelevision for animals such as birds, reptiles, amphibians, bony fish, and invertebrates, whose genitalia are typically visible only as a small underside 'vent' between the rear limbs (and easy to miss even without feathers or scales to obscure them).

This started with the original film ''Film/LassieComeHome'' and has been followed as standard practice through all sequels and reboots.
