* TalkingAnimal - This is an animal who can talk as well as a normal human, and who can communicate with humans. However, they still are unarguably animals, and usually have mostly animal behavior (the humans might not like what such animals have to say about them). They may occasionally act more human-like if the need (and RuleOfFunny / RuleOfCool) calls for it. Examples include ''Literature/{{Dinotopia}}'s'' Ambassador Bix the Protoceratops, TV's Series/MisterEd, and the animal denizens of [[Literature/TheChroniclesOfNarnia Narnia]] and the Literature/LandOfOz. There have been cases of this in RealLife; some real life parrots speak in complete sentences, so you should only include a parrot on this page if it is fluent.

* CivilizedAnimal - This is an intermediary stage between animals who talk and animals who might as well be human. They generally have half the mannerisms of a human and half the mannerisms of the animal. WesternAnimation/BugsBunny would be an excellent example: he lives in a hole in the forest and is hunted by Elmer Fudd -- and he stands upright, wears WhiteGloves, and tries to take vacations to Aruba. Brian the dog in ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' is this trope; he drinks martinis, walks on two legs and goes to college but also barks at people, scratches his butt on the carpet and so forth. [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Twilight Sparkle]] and her friends go here too: they live in houses, are the top of civilization with technology and magic ... and walk on all fours and eat hay. Its seminal use in literature is ''TheWindInTheWillows''... Which is itself [[FurryConfusion rather confusing]] at some points (Toad lives in a splendid old Hall, Mole lives in a hole in the ground).
