* In ''Literature/{{Strata}}'', Marco the kung was left with an adoptive human family by his parents, who were alien ambassadors to Earth. Kung believe in reincarnation, so when their return to their homeworld was delayed and their son was born on Earth instead, Marco's folks assumed he must've received a ''human'' soul rather than kung, and they wanted him to grow up among "his own kind".

See also MuggleFosterParents, where the adopted child is not an animal, but isn't a normal human either. Humans raising members of other {{demihuman}} races, especially races that are usually hostile to humans, is an inversion of RaisedByOrcs. See also OrcRaisedByElves, in which the adopted parents aren't necessarily humans, but the result is the same.

* Subverted in ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha''. Nanoha adopts [[HumanAlien Vivio]], but since Nanoha had already chosen to StayWithTheAliens several years earlier, Vivio is culturally Mid-childan rather than Japanese (though her name is in Japanese order).

* ''Webcomic/{{Freefall}}'' has the Bowman's Wolves, a genetically-modified UpliftedAnimal in early development. The first generation were placed with human families to ensure they had other sapients to learn from. Florence mentions going to the zoo with her human family to see her birth mother (an ordinary red wolf).

* An episode of Creator/AnimalPlanet's ''Series/FatalAttractions'' featured a man who raised a lion cub as if it were his own child. Said cub in question ended up mauling his actual human daughter. The lion in question had to be shot and killed by the very man who raised her in order to save his daughter.

** Suffice to say, this is very common with non-domesticated animals raised by humans, as they have certain adult behavior and instincts that arent compatible with their human "parent".

* In the ''Literature/{{Babar}}'' books (and the cartoon based on it), the titular elephant was raised by an old lady simply referred to as [[NoNameGiven Madame]]. When Babar returns to his kind, he builds a city teaches the elephants and other jungle animals how to live a civilized life.

** This is nearly always reused no matter what the setting is, even Elseworld stories. In ''SupermanRedSon'', Kal-El's ship crashes in the Ukraine sometime in the 20's and is raised in a commune with socialist values and becomes the USSR's greatest champion, ''Superman: Mastermen'' has him raised as an Ubermensch by the Nazi party, ''SpeedingBullets'' has him become the adoptive son of the Wayne family and so on.
** Of note is that the earliest version of Superman was only mentioned as having been found by a "passing motorist" and left at an orphanage. The Kents werent introduced until a year later.
