** Another Geico ad shows some children playing the game "Marco Polo" in a backyard pool with the historical Marco Polo. A llama stands by the pool watching the game for some reason ... presumably (since it's wearing a pack) because the commercial's writers didn't know that they're from the wrong continent for Polo to have ever used one on his travels.

* In the remake ''{{Clash of the Titans|2010}}'', Zeus' totem is a bald eagle, which is native to North America and would certainly not have shown up in ancient Greece.

* In the original, ''Film/ClashOfTheTitans'', the snake that shows up is a boa constrictor -- which lives in the Americas, and thus would not have appeared in Ancient Greece. In the remake, the misplaced wildlife is even more blatant -- Zeus' totem is a bald eagle, which is native to North America and would certainly not have shown up in ancient Greece.

*** The siafu ("big damn ants!") are native to Africa, not Peru, and aren't nearly as big in RealLife. This could be a case of misidentified wildlife on Indy's part instead, as the Amazon notoriously does have similar army ants.

* ''VideoGame/EmpireEarth'': One of the tutorials has you guide Phoenicean settlers to build a thriving Mediterranean colony, including fending off ''tiger'' attacks. Made even weirder by the fact that wolves are available in the editor.
* ''VideoGame/AgeOfEmpires'' features, among others, a whale in the Nile and crocodiles in Italy.

* ''VideoGame/WarcraftIII'': One mission has Thrall explore a mountain cavern in the thus far desert and forested continent of Kalimdor, when he comes across several sheep. He then recalls not having seen any since they'd arrived, prompting a sorceress to comment that Thrall's bright for an orc, before undoing the enchantment and ambushing him with several un-polymorphed footmen.

* ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' give us Yungoos, which is clearly based on mongoose in Hawaii. Yungoos are an alien species to Alola that were introduced to the region in a misguided attempt to control the population of another Pokémon. Given what happened with mongoose in Hawaii and the fact Yungoos are ComMons, it can be safely assumed that Yungoos were active at the wrong time of day to carry out their intended purpose and thrived without natural predators, leaving Alola with an invasive population of [[HairTriggerTemper bad tempered]] {{Big Eater}}s.

** Among the Bandar-log, the gibbons are presumed to be western hoolock gibbons,the only gibbon species native to India (the eastern hoolock gibbon might also be present in eastern Arunachal Pradesh). However, it is only found in the northeastern part of India, and does not share a range with the lion-tailed macaque, which is native to the ''southwestern'' part of India. Same goes for most of the other monkeys - the other macaque species represented appears to be a pig-tailed macaque, likely the northern pig-tailed macaque. There are also golden langurs and Nilgiri langurs. However, the northern pig-tailed macaque and golden langur are also found only in the northeastern states of India, and wouldn't have hung out with the lion-tailed macaques. The Nilgiri langur, like the lion-tailed macaque, is endemic to southwestern India. ''None of these species are found in the Seoni area''. Only the gray langurs fit biogeographically - they're probably meant to be southern plains gray langur, which is the species native to central India. It's really odd that they chose a number of more exotic-looking monkey species that while Indian, don't occur in this area at all, while omitting the rhesus macaque, which ''is'' found in central India.
