* Most media depictions of dinosaurs [[ArtisticLicensePaleontology do not resemble the real animals]]. For example, ''Velociraptor'' is [[RaptorAttack almost always portrayed]] resembling the larger ''Deinonychus'' or ''Utahraptor'', ''Troodon'' is often shown lacking the sickle-shaped claw on its feet making it resemble ''Compsognathus'' or ''Coelophysis'', ''Allosaurus'' is shown looking more like a downsized ''TyrannosaurusRex'' with three-fingered hands, ''Spinosaurus'' is depicted as a giant ''Baryonyx'' with a half-circular sail on its back, ''Apatosaurus'' and ''Brontosaurus'' often have longer necks and thinner frames more akin to ''Diplodocus'', ''Ankylosaurus'' usually has spikes on its armor and along its sides, etc.

* Many cartoon alligators look more like crocodiles, often having thinner snouts and the lower teeth visible when their mouths are closed. Real alligators have wider U-shaped snouts, and their lower teeth are hidden underneath the upper jaw making it an overbite.

Added DiffLines:

* Many cartoon parrots and toucans are portrayed not resembling any real species, particularly having bizarre coloring and patterns. They are also always drawn with typical "chicken-feet" with three toes in front and one in back (real parrots and toucans have two toes pointing forwards and two pointing backwards).
