* In ''WesternAnimation/HappyFeet'', one can count several different types of penguins beyond the generic black and white ones seen in typical media. Mumble and Gloria are emperor penguins, the Latino-accented {{Plucky Comic Relief}}s are Adelie penguins, and the guru voiced by Creator/RobinWilliams is a Rockhopper penguin. Chinstrap Penguins and African Jackass Penguins are also seen briefly during Mumble's imprisonment in the marine animal exhibit. In addition to the penguins, there's the NightmareFuel-laden leopard seal, a herd of elephant seals, and a gang of skuas.

* Other than two of the main heroes (mammoth and saber-toothed cat or ''Smilodon''), ''WesternAnimation/IceAge'' and its two sequels were filled to the brim with prehistoric animals that went beyond the stock animals that is so nauseatingly typical in any other movie. You had Sid the ''Megalonyx'' or ground sloth, glyptodonts (salesman Fast Tony's sidekick who got eaten by the marine reptiles, Cretaceous the ''Metriorhynchus'' and Maelstrom the ''Globidens''), the sad and farting chalicothere, gray trunked ''Moeritherium'', the rhino-looking ''Brontops'' brothers who were harassing Sid in the first movie, long-necked and trunked ''Macrauchenia'', a bulky ''Homotherium'' or scimitar-toothed cat as a member of Soto's pack, shovel-tusker ''Platybelodon'', some ''Baptornis'' or hesperornithes, musk ox-like ''Euceratherium'', and giant ''Gastornis'' birds. In the third movie, 'Dawn of the Dinosaurs', it showed that Buck is a pine marten and the giant butterfly is a Queen Alexandra Birdwing. It went beyond StockDinosaurs to include small stegosaurid ''Kentrosaurus'', a pack of ''Troodon'', Roger the ''Harpactognathus'' who served as an airborne mount for Buck and the possum brothers, a predatory flock of ''Pterodactylus'', ravenous wolfish ''Guanlong'', and a white ''Baryonyx'' named Rudy -- Buck's eternal enemy and threat to the ''T. rex'' family.

* ''Disney/TheRescuers Down Under'' features a giant wedge-tailed eagle named Marahute.
** As well as a goanna named Joanna. ("Goanna" is sort of a generic word for monitor lizards in Australia, since several species of monitor lizard do live there, but based on her size she's most likely a Perentie.)
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Rio}}'' has a number of more obscure bird species, most prominently, the Spix's Macaw.
** For bonus points, Spix's Macaw is a critically endangered species (fewer than 100 remain), meaning that it's ''literally'' seldom seen.
** Besides obscure birds, there's also marmosets and a white-shouldered bat.
