* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'' has monsters and wild animals appear in the appropriate places (wolves in the northern mountains, giant insects in the grasslands, etc), but the Veldt is a continent where all the world's monsters come to migrate for some reason that is never explained, even if certain monsters shouldn't be able to survive in the plains. From a gameplay perspective, the Veldt serves as a training ground for Gau to learn new Rage skills by having random battles with anything you encountered previously, even certain bosses like the Holy Dragon.

The bane of naturalists, just as AnachronismStew is the bane of historians. This is a trope that can manifest several different ways.

* ''Series/{{Lost}}'' has [[ItWasHisSled polar]] [[AllThereIsToKnowAboutTheCryingGame bears]] on a tropical island, alongside horses, chickens, and cows. This is immediately {{lampshade|Hanging}}d by the cast as being very wrong ("Polar bears don't live this far south!" "This one apparently does."), and is just one more mystery about the Island. Eventually explained as being brought to the Island by [[spoiler:The DHARMA Initiative, [[AllThereInTheManual who were doing research on gene manipulation for adaption to different climates.]]]]

* Much of the action of Shakespeare's ''AsYouLikeIt'' takes place in the Forest of Arden. There is some debate about whether that refers to the Arden near Stratford, in England, or the Ardennes of the Franco-Belgian border region. However, what is certain is that, in both places, there is little chance of being attacked by a lion. ** This gets even sillier in some productions, like the KennethBranagh film adaptation set in ''[[MeijiRestoration Meiji-era Japan!]]''

* ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy'' and ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy2'' apparently featured what appeared to be [[EverythingsBetterWithPenguins emperor penguins]] (native only to um, guess) living on various planets that otherwise have a tropical setting. And the inhabitants of the ice planets? ''Bunnies''. They could have been ''king'' penguins however, since they look exactly like emperor penguins, but live in the tropics. Seems to be an in universe example as well, as those penguins appear to be based on the ones from SuperMario64, which were exclusive to the ice world.

* Justified in ''VisualNovel/HatofulBoyfriend'', which takes place at a prestigious high school for sapient birds, and so attracts students and faculty from all over the world. The heroine still lampshades the unlikeliness of encountering a mourning dove in Japan. Justified specifically for said mourning dove in the Bad Boys Love route: [[spoiler: He was a war orphan, which is what left him in Japan, and he was attending St. Pigeonation's so Dr. Shuu could experiment on the virus he was a carrier for.]]

* ''Series/{{The 100}}'', set in [[AfterTheEnd what was once the eastern United States]], has an episode where characters are attacked by a [[NuclearNasty (possibly mutated)]] KillerGorilla. Since the gorilla's home seems to be the ruined remains of a zoo, it's probably meant to be descended from zoo gorillas who survived the nuclear war.

* One Creator/TexAvery cartoon "Slap Happy Lion", had a once ferocious lion that terrified all the other animals in the jungle with his roars, including a zebra, flamingo, a trio crocodiles, ostrich, snakes, a gorilla, and.....a kangaroo?

Though one could argue a kangaroo might be ''more'' at home in a jungle than the lion is. Once again, lions do not actually live in jungles.

* There's a stable population of ring necked parakeets in South Eastern England and London- its not uncommon to see trees covered in the little green birds in such places as Ramsgate.

* The first ''Film/AlienVsPredator'' movie is set in MysteriousAntarctica and has a CatScare involving a penguin. Problem is, the bird shown is an ''African'' penguin, only found in, well, Africa.
