Though Funny Animal Anatomy should not be noted under YouFailBiologyForever, since it's ''never'' meant to be serious, some {{egregious}} decisions are made in this sense, for either stylistic or [[AnthropomorphicShift anthropomorphic]] reasons. Some are so omnipresent they even are tropes unto themselves.

Some are so omnipresent they even are tropes unto themselves.

Just remember that TropesAreTools and more often than not these are invoked simply because it's more [[RuleOfFun interesting]] , [[RuleOfCute appealing]] or [[RealityIsUnrealistic expected]] to the viewer to utilize them and can [[LazyArtist make story telling easier]] in some cases.

The LawOfConservationOfDetail (often used with the RuleOfPersonificationConservation) makes it easier to skim over those things if it's not relevant to the story and well, sometimes you simply want to [[DistractedByTheSexy avoid]] [[MaleGaze drifting]] [[FemaleGaze gazes]] or indeed {{Squick}} regardless of who the target audience is.
