* Thanks to the oil-spill disaster, word is now out that oil companies (not just BP) drilling in the Gulf of Mexico merely duplicated their recovery plans for spillages occurring in Alaska. This includes guidelines about how to assist walruses and polar bears endangered by a spill.

* About midway through ''WesternAnimation/{{Up}}'', Mr. Fredriksen and [[TheLoad Russell]] are in Venezuela. Russell complains that he's tired. Mr. Fredriksen tells Russell to hurry up before a tiger eats him, but Russell whines that there aren't tigers in Venezuela.

* ''[[WesternAnimation/Up]]'' actually invokes this: Carl tries to get Russell to keep moving by saying that "the tigers will get you". However, they're in South America (Venezuela, to be precise), while tigers are distinctly an Asian species. [[BrilliantButLazy Russell immediately points this out, referencing his zoology scout badge, and continues lying face-down on the ground]].

* Strangely inverted in one episode of ''Literature/GeronimoStilton'': a shark suddenly attacks a surfing competition. Looking it up, Benjamin sees that it's a copper shark, and since those are usually found around Australia and New Zealand, deduces that it must have been introduced on purpose. While it ''is'' true that they're found there, [[https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/5/57/Carcharhinus_brachyurus_rangemap.png copper sharks around in many other coastal areas]], as widely dispersed as the West Coast of the United States and the Mediterranean.

*''Anime/KemonoFriends'': Japari Park makes no attempt to separate its animals and Friends by their original location, only by biome. And even then there's a lot of Friends in weird places, though that could be the result of them moving around unsupervised.

* The Norwegian Blue is an example of a ''seriously'' misplaced tropical parrot which would indeed be a rarity in the fjords. It's possible the [[MontyPython pet shop owner]] was embellishing things somewhat...

** 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.

* ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' has newts and trout living in saltwater habitats and a coral reef that would be more appropriate off the coast of Australia than in the chilly Atlantic Ocean. The sequel also features a walrus living in what appears to be Antarctica.
