* There are the two meerkats from ''Advertising/CompareTheMeerkat'', Alexandr and Sergei. ** Meerkats are related to mongooses, which have enjoyed moderate fame in Western culture over the past century and a half thanks to RudyardKipling's short story "Rikki-Tikki-Tavi." If a mongoose shows up, expect it to be creepy or even "evil" - even though Rikki himself was a good example of DarkIsNotEvil.

** ''Kakuranger''/''Mighty Morphin'' Season 3 infamously had the aforementioned frog, as well as a crane. [[Film/MightyMorphinPowerRangersTheMovie The movie]] former was something of a case of LostInTranslation - in ''Kakuranger'' the frog-bot (and its pilot) were a reference to ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jiraiya The Tale of the Gallant Jiraiya]]''. ''Film/MightyMorphinPowerRangersTheMovie'' tried to vaguely justify the frog's presence by referring to it with the concept of BewitchedAmphibians.

[[folder:Comic Strips]] * ''ComicStrip/{{BC}}'' has the Apteryx, a "wingless bird with hairy feathers," as he invariably introduces himself. ''Apteryx'' is the generic name for kiwis. * ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'': ** Calvin has a fairly encyclopedic knowledge of animals, primarily dinosaurs. They also averted StockDinosaurs with ''Centrosaurus'' and ''Supersaurus'' (although it is referred to as "[[ScienceMarchesOn Ultrasaurus]]" and is depicted as a brachiosaurid). ** He once asked if Hobbes could draw anything other than tigers, to which Hobbes replied, yes, he could also draw ocelots (slender, spotted wild cats from the jungles of Central and South America). * ''ComicStrip/{{Pogo}}'' was the only ever possum leading man in an American comic. * ''ComicStrip/ShermansLagoon'' has all sorts of obscure aquatic life.
