There may be a reasonable purpose for this: Humans are much more visually oriented than many other animals (except most birds), and these features are the most obvious visual cues for humans in telling female humans from males. Other species may have [[BizarreSexualDimorphism different visual cues]], but what's the use in expecting the audience to recognize them? And [[TertiarySexualCharacteristics what else]] could you do to distinguish that your animal character is female? Just give them human-like lady features and call it a day.

** [[MsFanservice Candy Kong]] (see picture) is far more human than any of the other Kongs in the original ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry1''. Dixie and Wrinkly, who were both introduced in ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry2'', aren't nearly as humanoid.

** Scratchy (the [[FourLegsGoodTwoLegsBetter bipedal]] cat) and Snowball II (the normal quadrupedal cat) show up together in ''The Simpsons TreehouseOfHorror IX'' segment, "The Terror of Tiny Toon". The two cats are at [[SlidingScaleOfAnthropomorphism such differing levels of anthropomorphism]] that FurryConfusion ensues.
