* ''WebOriginal/SCPFoundation'' looked after SCP-1470, a fringed jumping spider with human-level intelligence also capable of telepathy, allowing him to speak with humans. However, in every other respect, he was a normal jumping spider... which included lifespan, and he died of natural causes after only three months. At first he thought the people he was talking to were other spiders like himself, and had something of a FreakOut when he realized he was actually speaking to those [[HumansAreCthulhu gigantic shapes moving outside his terrarium]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/BeCoolScoobyDoo'' also features a somewhat more articulate Scooby than in most series.
* The Franchise/ScoobyDoo franchise as a whole lampshades the trope by featuring Scooby (and a number of other animal characters such as [[TheScrappy Scrappy Doo]]) talk openly, but no one finds this unusual - even though a primary concept of the entire franchise is that the supernatural (usually) doesn't exist.

Like many {{Speech Impaired Animal}}s and {{Nearly Normal Animal}}s, many Talking Animals lack hands and walk on all fours, negating the possibility of performing many human tasks and behaviors. A few examples are bipedal even if their species isn't naturally so. However, when required by a joke, the Talking Animal can sometimes act like the more anthropomorphic CivilizedAnimal or FunnyAnimal.

* With the exception of Scratch the squirrel, all animals in ''Film/IceAge'' are anatomically correct prehistoric animals that can talk. Nevertheless they only interact with a human once and is in the first movie, and is a toddler (but seems to understand them).

** In the ''Pokemon'' universe, all Pokemon can understand each other. So it isn't anything special on Meowth's part when he translates from Pokemon to human language because, as a Pokemon, he automatically understands what any other Pokemon is saying, regardless of species. It is shown many times, for example, one Pokemon of one species trying to convince another Pokemon of a different species that these humans are friends and those humans are bad and things like that.
