* Dinosaurs with overly flexible tails that may or may not drag on the ground. Real dinosaurs held their tails rigid, and theropods in particular are supposed to have stiff and thick tails that are used for balance and leg powering (sometimes this is a case of ScienceMarchesOn however). Stegosaurids have flexible tails as far as dinosaurs go, but even these were stiffened and held off of the ground.

* Saber-toothed cats tend to be depicted with long tails similar to other big cats. Primitive saber-toothed cats like ''Machairodus'' have tails like this, but advanced ones like ''Smilodon'' have short tails like bobcats.

* Diplodocid sauropods like ''Apatosaurus'' and ''Diplodocus'' will sometimes be portrayed with shorter tails than in real life, despite the family being known for having long, whip-like tails which they use for defense. Conversely, brachiosaurids will sometimes have long tails similar to those of diplodocids as opposed to shorter tails.
