* ''Film/TheAbominableDrPhibes'' has its first onscreen victim "torn apart" by bats - portrayed by flying foxes, which are a) fruit bats and b) look like adorable flying puppies. They seem more interested in snuggling up to their human co-star for warmth than doing anything aggressive. Later in the movie, actual Terrifying Pet Store Rats make an appearance, and a woman is killed by locusts (aka ''grasshoppers'') after being covered by a concoction brewed from Brussels sprouts.

* Also occurred when [[Wrestling/JakeRoberts Jake "The Snake" Roberts]] was supposed to sic a (real, but de-venomed) cobra on {{Wrestling/Sting}} as a match finisher, only to have the snake turn on him, but the cobra turned out to be ''too'' tame and wouldn't actually bite him, so he just held it to his face while it flailed pathetically.

** Happened again on RAW when the snake he brought out to torment a KO'd Dean Ambrose wasn't too keen on tormenting him. And Dean [[{{Corpsing}} corpsed]] when the snake was rubbing against his face.

* One [[http://www.webbertraining.com/photos/custom/IC%20Cal%202013_Page4.jpg PSA for sanitation]] had a caption saying "When did you last clean your phone?" and featured a leopard gecko sitting on an old-style flip phone. While clearly intended to invoke the ReptilesAreAbhorrent trope, leopard geckos are incredibly docile and make great pets, which was probably ''why'' it was picked for the advertisement. For bonus points, the leopard gecko in question is of a morph almost never seen in the wild, making its pet-ness even more obvious.

* In ''Film/IfLooksCouldKill'', the supposedly deadly scorpion used in an effort to kill the hero is in reality a harmless emperor scorpion.

* Fairly common on ''Series/{{Zoo}}'' when real lions or wolves are shown "ferociously menacing" humans with body language that indicates they're having a fine old time playing with their handlers.

* Used to FreakOut ''the contestants'' rather than the audience on ''Series/TotalBlackout'': whenever they're required to identify an animal by touch in the dark, it's likely to be this trope. Or possibly a rubber model.
