Where a mammal is represented as just a mammal, and an actual species is hard - if not impossible - to determine.
We've all seen the scenario - this thing has fur. But what the hell is it? Is it a rat, a dog, a rabbit or an aardvark? No one knows. The producers might tell you later on, but don't count on it.
- One example is Arthur the Aardvark from Western Animation/Arthur, who looks rather non description in his appearance.
