** Similarly, the mockery and vitriol against the mockumentaries and cryptozoology based shows tends to paint these works as being new creations that were added as a desperate grab for ratings. In actuality, the network had plenty of cryptozoology and mockumentary-style shows long before ''Series/LostTapes'' or anything like that aired--''Animal X'' and ''Film/DragonsAFantasyMadeReal'' come to mind. What's even more bizarre is that the latter was incredibly popular and well loved by the fanbase...and the nigh identical ''Film/MermaidsTheBodyFound'' was mocked and criticized.

* FandomRivalry: Animal Planet vs the newer Nat Geo Wild, which is a spinoff channel of Creator/NationalGeographicChannel centered around animals. It doesn't help that many haters of the formers NetworkDecay have gone to the latter.

** The network executives are quickly gaining a reputation for all being cat people, as their weekend lineups are pretty much all dedicated to cat focused shows now. [[note]]While their weekend lineups usually focused on pets in the past, they usually had a fifty / fifty focus on both cats and dogs in the past. Now, the line mostly seems to be 80 / 20, with ''Dogs 101'' and ''Pet Stars'' (which also has ''Cats 101'' and the latter has a fifty-fifty between cats and dogs) being the only thing that really focuses on dogs anymore.[[/note]]

** They also added ''Rocky Mountain Bounty Hunters'' to the mix, which is pretty much ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. Though, it seems to have gotten quickly axed shortly after appearing, possibly due to a backlash against it.

* NetworkDecay: The show's decreased its focus on wild animal documentaries (and to a lesser extent, ''Series/AnimalPlanetHeroes'') and shifted more towards TastesLikeDiabetes shows about cute puppies, slightly-linked to animal shows such as ''Tanked'' that would be more at home on Discovery, shows about [[AnimalWrongsGroup crazy tree huggers]] like ''Series/WhaleWars'' and "Blonde vs. Bear", supernatural-themed shows like ''Series/LostTapes'', "The Haunting" and "Finding Bigfoot" that are usually full of Narm but can occasionally veer into NightmareFuel, and shows that outright ''[[YouCanPanicNow demonize]]'' animals such as ''Series/{{Infested}}'' or ''Series/FatalAttractions''. About the only show that would fit right in with the old Animal Planet paradigm is ''Series/RiverMonsters''.
** They now have a show called 'Ice Cold Gold', which is about American gold-miners trying to find gold in Greenland. No animals in sight. They also now have Wild West Alaska, which is about nothing but custom guns and shooting 'killer' bears.

** "Animal Planet hates animals" based on their rampart NetworkDecay, and the few shows that still focus on animals usually paint them in a less than flattering light.

* NeverLiveItDown: Their NetworkDecay has become quite a bit prime SnarkBait on the internet, especially with their shows that don't even ''attempt'' to shoehorn animals in, even slightly.
