** Cats are depicted as diurnal. They rarely hunt at night and don't have very good eyesight at night either. While cats are not completely nocturnal, they are known to be active as night as long as they have some light. Cats in ''Warriors'' also rarely hunt in trees, unlike real cats.

** The average life expectancy for a feral cat is only a few years. While the series has a [[AnyoneCanDie very high death toll]], most cats live longer than that by several years. It's likely a pragmatic decision as it wouldn't be that interesting if cats died after only being a few dozen moons old.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Nintendogs}} + Cats'' each breed comes in multiple colours, however in real life many of the breeds have very few, if any, varying patterns according to Breed Standards. This means several dogs have fake fur colours, such as Malteses with spots.



* ''VideoGame/{{Starcraft}}''. For a series that goes to great length to explain how everything works, the powered marine armour really shouldn't require multiple shoulder dislocations...
** Arguably explained and justified by the opening cinematic for Starcraft II. Though that depends on whether you believe Tychus Findley's build is at all realistic.

* ''Literature/SurvivorDogs'':
** Realistically, a lot of the dogs would have a tougher time surviving than the wild than depicted. Sweet, for example, is a Greyhound. They're known for getting injured very easily and getting cold very easily, due to the low amount of fat on their bodies. Sweet still fares perfectly well in the cold environment and [[spoiler:is powerful enough to become an Alpha]]. Sunshine, a West Highland White Terrier, is depicted as being weak, though Westies are rather hardy and tenacious hunters so she'd likely actually be a pretty capable addition to the pack.
** Dogs are depicted as monogamous, unlike real dogs.
** Young foxes are referred to as "cubs". The proper term is "kits".
** Dogs follow the outdated pack hierarchy system. Alphas are the leaders, betas are the second-in command, omegas are the lowest of the caste, everything is decided with fighting, etc. This system has is considered inaccurate to how wolf packs actually work. Feral dogs often times don't even form concrete packs like wolves do.

* ''Literature/WarriorCats':
** Adult warriors can become FromStrayToPet if they wish to, though it's deeply looked down upon and they're seen as traitors to their Clan. In real life, most feral cats (as in, they were born and raised on the streets with little-to-no human contact) cannot be homed after kittenhood. This is why Trap-and-Release programs release the cats after spaying and neutering them, instead of trying to find them owners.
** Neutered cats are portrayed as sluggish and fat. This is a reason why [[AnimalsFearNeutering cats fear humans]]. Learning about neutering helps persuade Rusty to run away to [=ThunderClan=]. This is an old myth. Cats, or dogs for that matter, don't become less active due to being spayed or neutered.
** Cats are portrayed as monogamous animals that mate for life. In real life, cats are anything but monogamous.
** Cats are depicted as diurnal. They rarely hunt at night and don't have very good eyesight at night either. While cats are not completely nocturnal, they are known to be active as night as long as they have some light. Cats in ''Warriors'' also rarely hunt in trees, unlike real cats.
** ''Warriors'' is pretty bad with genetics and cat colours. A lot of characters have colourings that are {{implausible|HairColor}} or impossible for them considering their parentage.
** Cat pregnancies are depicted as longer than they actually are.

* Jenna from ''WesternAnimation/{{Balto}}'' is a red Siberian Husky. While "red" Siberian Huskies do exist, they're more of a brownish tone than a bright red. Jenna's fur invokes HeroesWantRedheads more than the actual colour does.



* It seems that the bulls and cows of ''WesternAnimation/{{Barnyard}}'' and its spinoff ''WesternAnimation/BackAtTheBarnyard'' are separate species. Case in point, Otis is a [[AnimalGenderBender male cow]] and one episode has a female bull.

** Nala's father should logically be Mufasa or Scar, making her related to Simba, who became her mate. In an early script Nala was [[KissingCousins Simba's cousin]] that ultimately According to ''WesternAnimation/TheLionGuard'' her father is an unknown, possibly rogue, male.



** A relativity small thing, but none of the cubs in either of the movies seem to be part of a litter. Though lionesses typically have small litters (usually just two or three cubs at a time)and having a single cub is certainly possible, to have all of these cubs being single births is quite bizarre.

Though lionesses typically have small litters (usually just two or three cubs at a time)and having a single cub is certainly possible, to have all of these cubs being single births is quite bizarre. Lions also tend to have litters within months of each other, but Kiara was the only cub in her pride and her parents were the only two when they were young. Extended media tries to fix this, such as ''Literature/TheLionKingSixNewAdventures'' introducing Chumvi and Kula as Nala's childhood friend and ''The Lion Guard'' having Kiara be friends with two cubs as well, but the characters end up looking like [[RememberTheNewGuy random additions]].
** Lion cubs lack the rosettes that actual young cubs have. The sole exception is Kion from ''The Lion Guard'' (who is actually too old for them). Concept art shows that Simba originally had rosettes, but in the final product he lacks them.
** Newborn lion cubs are depicted as rather large and with their eyes already open, in contrast to real cubs who are smaller and born with their eyes closed.
* Marty from ''WesternAnimation/{{Madagascar}}'' is treated as if he's having a HollywoodMidLifeCrisis at age ten. While it's true that wild zebras have a life expectancy of twenty-five, captive zebras have a life expectancy of ''forty''.

** In "The Eggpire Strikes Back," Jimmy states that, because Cindy extracted the secret to entering his lab from Carl and Sheen and betrayed him to the Yolkians, that he's going to erase her short term memory so that she forgets. Thing is, this had happened the day before, so unless Cindy didn't sleep the knowledge would already have been consolidated into long term memory.
