* There's at least [[http://www.vegetarismus.ch/vegepet/tyke.html one known]] example of a vegetarian lion that lived 9 years. Note that this could ''never'' have happened in the wild. Cats--including lions--are obligate carnivores and most cannot digest vegetable matter at all (the only exceptions are the [[http://www.arkive.org/margay/leopardus-wiedii/ margay]] of Central and South America, which occasionally eats fruit, the [[http://www.indiantiger.org/wild-cats/flat-headed-cat.html flat-headed cat]] of Southeast Asia, which sometimes eats fruit and sweet potatoes, and the snow leopard of Central Asia and the Himalayas, which eats lots of vegetation). The diet of the "vegetarian lion" therefore contained many artificial supplements.

* Many paleontologists believe that the [[UsefulNotes/StockDinosaursNonDinosaurs cave bear]] was almost entirely herbivorous, much like the panda. Like the panda, however, it may eat meat if given the opportunity.

* Tiger from ''WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTail'' is a cat who is appalled at the very thought of eating mice. He does occasionally eat [[NoCartoonFish fish]], though, making him a pescetarian.

* In the [[VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry1 very first]] ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry'' game, the crocodilian Kremlings stole the Kongs' Banana Hoard for its nutritional value. This is [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness never brought up in later games]], where the Kremlings and other villains take the bananas to distract the Kongs from their bigger schemes (''VideoGame/DonkeyKong64'') and/or to exploit the magical powers of the fruits (''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountryReturns''). In regards of the first game this becomes AccidentallyAccurate considering crocodilians do occasionally eat fruit, including bananas.

Added DiffLines:

* Many adaptations of ''VideoGame/{{Snake}}'' have the snake eat only fruit, mushrooms etc. instead of other animals, presumably to [[PredatorsAreMean keep it sympathetic]]. Examples include ''Hyper Viper'', ''[=AxySnake=]'' or ''Super Nibbly''. In reality, snakes are exclusively carnivores.
