->''"Heaven take it away! Hippopotami should not have human hands and carry torches... men should not have the heads of crocodiles..."''
-->-- '''Creator/HPLovecraft''' and '''Harry Houdini''''s ''Under the Pyramids''.

A Petting Zoo Person is a type of character who is so anthropomorphized that they resemble an animal's skin, head and tail placed on an otherwise human body frame. This is a higher degree of [[SlidingScaleOfAnthropomorphism anthropomorphism]] than the FunnyAnimal (who retain the [[http://cartooncave.blogspot.com/2009/01/anthropomorphism.html general shape and proportions of the animal]]), but a step below those that are a LittleBitBeastly (whose ''only'' animal features are their [[UnusualEars ears]] and tail, possibly claws); in Japan, this level of anthropomorphism is referred to as "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kemono kemono]]" (which is shortened term of ''kemono-obito'' or beast-man, and is also what [[FurryFandom Japanese furries]] call themselves).

Petting Zoo People typically feature the following:
* They possess the animal's full head and face, and (where applicable) the animal's tail.
* Where LittleBitBeastly folks have human skin, Petting Zoo People possess fur-, feather-, or scale-covered bodies. Sometimes they have a mix of skin accented with heavy concentrations of fur (et al), a built-in PrettyInMink as it were. Mammalian species with little to no fur by default (elephants, cetaceans, etc.) get a pass.
* They may feature animal-like claws or pads on their hands, or may stand on [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digitigrade digitigrade]] feet resembling the animal's hind legs.
* Their body frame can often be measured by human proportions, e.g: six to eight "heads" tall, legs comprising half their body height, etc.
* They may possess [[NonMammalMammaries humanlike breasts]], which {{Funny Animal}}s typically lack.
* They display all the mannerisms of a human individual, such as speaking human language (unless they're TheSpeechless) and wearing clothes on their body. The type of clothes varies with each setting; Petting Zoo People in 'modern' or science fiction settings will wear modern-day attire, while individuals in fantasy or "native" settings might wear only a loincloth and jewellery. Petting Zoo People are much more likely to be {{Fully Dressed Cartoon Animal}}s.
* They will often wear some form of footwear, which is not very common for {{Funny Animal}}s, particularly [[HalfDressedCartoonAnimal the clothing]]-[[AccessoryWearingCartoonAnimal adverse type]]. Footwear is less likely if they have animal feet.
* A female will typically have humanlike, styleable [[TertiarySexualCharacteristics hair on her head]]. Male hair is less common but they may still have an identifiable style. Animals with manes are the "[[JustForPun mane]]" exception.
* While a BeastMan may have AnimalEyes, Funny Animals will usually have human eyes (with perhaps a wider variety than CommonEyeColors).
* While {{Funny Animal}}s and {{Civilized Animal}}s are sometimes or often treated like "normal" animals in their world, Petting Zoo People are almost never treated like normal animals in their world.

In-universe, Petting Zoo People are generally a distinct species from both humans and animals (as opposed to a HalfHumanHybrid), assuming the [[ElephantInTheLivingRoom subject is actually brought up]] rather than [[LawOfConservationOfDetail simply glossed over]], and may inhabit a WorldOfFunnyAnimals.

There are two variants of PZP beside the standard variant, "Borderline Petting Zoo People", and "Borderline LittleBitBeastly".
* Borderline PZP have a body that does not look simply like an animal-accented human body, nor does it keep the basic shape of the animal entirely like a FunnyAnimal. They look partly humanoid and partly like their species, often they have either humanoid legs and non-humanoid torso, humanoid torso and non-humanoid legs, or look semi-humanoid all over. Many [[TopHeavyGuy top heavy]] bipedal animal characters are of the humanoid torso and non-humanoid legs variety. Females are depicted with human-like breasts fairly often.
* Borderline LBB have a animal-accented human face and body frame with the animal's ears, nose, tail (where applicable), markings, and sometimes fur, feathers, or scales. They have a mostly or nearly human-shaped head and little or no semblance of their species' muzzle. If they are a bird, they have the beak or bill respective to their species that is small regardless of their species on an otherwise human-shaped head. These are not to be confused with a BeastMan, which although he/she looks like this variant, he/she is a human with several animalistic physical and even behavorial traits.

One proliferous source of Petting Zoo People in artwork (possibly even the TropeCodifier) is the FurryFandom; sometimes characters who are {{Funny Animal}}s in their {{Canon}} will be made Petting Zoo People in fanart. Petting Zoo People are also commonly referred to as "Furries". Fans of these [[MindScrew are also commonly known]] as "{{Furr|y Fandom}}ies".

A midpoint between the FunnyAnimal and LittleBitBeastly on the SlidingScaleOfAnthropomorphism. Supertrope of IntelligentGerbil. See also HumanoidFemaleAnimal, where different ''genders'' of the same species possess differing levels of anthropomorphism. See also the subtrope BarefootCartoonAnimal, for when characters with this design are overwhelmingly drawn barefoot, despite being normally clothed otherwise.

!!Examples

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' has a whole race of them, the Beastmen.
* In ''Anime/MahouSenseiNegima'', the Magical World seems mostly composed of {{Kemonomimi}}s, but there are quite a few Petting Zoo People too. Most notable is "Bear Mama", the bear woman who took care of some of the characters for a while.
* Tony Tony Chopper from ''Manga/OnePiece'' fits this trope while in his [[HalfHumanHybrid hybrid form]]. However, his normal form is a FunnyAnimal (he is a reindeer) while his human form is a BeastMan.
** There's also Bepo, a polar bear wearing a jumpsuit in the Heart Pirates (led by Trafalgar Law). Additionally, a [[BadassInANiceSuit sharply dressed]] lion [[CoolShades in shades]] named Pekoms is under one of the most powerful pirates in the world: "Big Mom" Charlotte Linlin of the Four Emperors.
** Foxy also had three rat Petting Zoo People in his crew who helped him prepare for the grand match of Davy Back Fight.
* ''TowerOfGod'' has Rak, a giant, humanoid BloodKnight alligator and Gyetang, a walking bird with a giant shuriken on his back.
* In ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', Sajin Komamura appears to be a giant wolf man.
* Fukuro in ''Manga/FairyTail''.
** Also Yomazu and Kawazu.
* Chicken George from ''{{Fourteen}}'' is a chicken variety of this.
* They are a common sight in the ''Manga/DragonBall'' series, even moreso in the earlier arcs. Major characters that fit this trope included Puar, [[PigMan Oolong]], and Korin. Other examples of this trope are Captain Yellow (a tiger), a high-ranking officer of the Red Ribbon Army and King Furry (a dog), the King of Earth.
** Captain Yellow's design in particular was likewise a reference to the Flying Tigers from WorldWarII. The fact that he also happens to be a plane pilot also cements this.
* At least ''three'' of ''Anime/{{Doraemon}}'''s {{Non Serial Movie}}s have settings around anthropomorphic animals' societies, one having mixed up species, one having birds, and one having dogs and cats. They act and speak so similarly to the Earthlings that the heroes are always able to disguise themselves simply with animal outfits and use the language translation gum.
* Well-made chimeras from ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' look human most of the time but can turn into PettingZooPeople at will.
* Many Franchise/{{Digimon}} at the Mega level are this, such as [[LizardFolk Wargreymon, Victorygreymon, Shinegreymon, Imperialdramon, Ulforcevdramon, Omegashoutmon]], Miragegaogamon, and Magnagarurumon. Some exist below this level as well.
* Several beings in the world of Gaea from ''Anime/TheVisionOfEscaflowne'', most notably Merle, a ''CatGirl''; there are also dog people, wolf people, dolphin people, hawk people, lizard people, etc.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* When Kurt Connors from the ''ComicBook/SpiderMan'' comics becomes the Lizard he falls under this trope.
* Sally Acorn, Lupe, and Bunnie Rabbot from the ''ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog'' started off as {{Funny Animal}}s in [[WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM the SatAM cartoon]] and early issues, but eventually [[AnthropomorphicShift became]] this trope due to Steven Butler. This has been toned down in more recent issues, with the artists proportioning the cast more according to the games series' {{Funny Animal}}s designs.
** Arguably the design shift was codified with Patrick Spaziante's work, who did art for the comic rather early in its run (his earliest art for Issue 25 already uses a rather humanoid Sally for example); however, the designs only became consistent around the time artists such as Butler and Jay Axer began doing pencils for the series. This is true for Sally Acorn at least. Bunnie's more humanoid redesign was due to a canonical upgrade for her robotic limbs while Lupe was noticably more humanoid than the others, even in [[WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM the cartoon]].
* ''ComicBook/{{Maus}}'', a story about the Holocaust, with different species standing in for different nationalities/races.
* The cast of ''UsagiYojimbo'', with two exceptions, both villainous.
* ''ComicBook/{{Blacksad}}'' is one of the currently most famous examples in the European comic book world, starring mostly animals of all kinds with very human-like bodies, ranging from straight-up PZP to Borderline LittleBitBeastly.
* ''DeCapeEtDeCrocs'': The main leads are an anthropomorphic fox and wolf. They also are noblemen; and both have human LoveInterests. Their sidekick is a rabbit (and former Guard of the Cardinal!)
* The [[{{Dogfaces}} dognoses]] of Carl Barks's ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse comics, the ComicBook/MickeyMouseComicUniverse comics, ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'', ''WesternAnimation/GoofTroop'', ''WesternAnimation/AGoofyMovie'' and ''An Extremely Goofy Movie'' look like people, except with dog noses and muzzles, and (usually) dog ears. [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Beaglefamily_1596.png The Beagle Boys]] are an example.
** Many of them are even more humanoid than Goofy or Max, who are also supposed to be [[{{Dogfaces}} dognoses]].
** A lot of [[{{Dogfaces}} dognoses]] have a coloring that indicates a lack of fur and some of them (like Roxanne from AGoofyMovie) even border on LittleBitBeastly.
*** But the Beagle Boys in ''MickeyDonaldGoofyTheThreeMusketeers'', unlike in Carl Barks' and Don Rosa's comics and in Duck Tales, are grey, which is color that makes them look like they have fur.
* Almost everyone except for the titular protagonist in JackKirby's '70s comic, ''[[{{Kamandi}} Kamandi: Last Boy on Earth]]''.
* Katarina Kodorofsky the Russian spy cat and Mickey's ally from the ComicBook/MickeyMouseComicUniverse.
* The ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'s Beast has a secondary mutation that has him turn into this.
* Rosinha Rocha from the ''Ze Carioca'' comics is a borderline LittleBitBeastly.
* The Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles, as mentioned below.
* ComicBook/CerebusTheAardvark is a humanoid aardvark.
* Most of the supporting cast of ''SonicTheComic'' gradually turned into this. At first they were just animals standing on two legs, usually keeping their animalistic proportions (so, for instance, pig Porker Lewis had a large belly, and rabbit Johnny Lightfoot had notably longer hind legs), but after Robotnik took over Mobius most characters started wearing clothes and assumed more humanoid proportions. Porker's the most obvious example, as his pig trotters were replaced with five-fingered hands (presumably due to his status as the team's tech expert).
* ''Manhwa/TheGreatCatsby'': World filled to the brim with anthropomorphic dogs, cats, and one {{token human}} here and there, but hey, no big deal.

[[folder:Commercials]]
* French beverage maker Advertising/{{Orangina}} has a cast of characters in their commercials which are CGI animal people.
** American beverage enhancer Mio appears to be following suit.
* Creator/ChuckECheese, the mouse mascot of the same-named chain of family entertainment centers.
* In the 1980s, Midland Bank, a British listening bank, has [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wdKTYXzybrY an anthropomorphic version of their golden griffin mascot]] in some of their animated commercials.
* Foxy Bingo, a UK Bingo website, uses an [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IElprZaPC_I anthropomorphic Fox in a maroon coloured suit]] for their adverts.

* Disney characters [[Disney/RobinHood Maid Marian]], [[WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers Gadget Hackwrench]], and [[WesternAnimation/TaleSpin Rebecca Cunningham]] are borderline Petting Zoo People in their {{Canon}}, but are usually full-on Petting Zoo People in fanart. [[SelfFanservice This is because furries need something that caters to their personal tastes.]]
* Babs Bunny, Fifi La Fume, Rhubella Rat, and Shirly The Loon from ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'' are {{Funny Animal}}s, but are often drawn as Petting Zoo People in fanart. [[SelfFanservice Like said example above, this is because furries need something that appeals and interests them.]]
* Fanart of Cleo from ''WesternAnimation/HeathcliffAndTheCatillacCats'' usually shows her with [[NonMammalMammaries Wrong-Type-of-Mammal Mammaries]], which she does not have in the show's {{Canon}}.
* Most ''SonicTheHedgehog'' characters are actually {{Funny Animal}}s, but most of them are usually drawn as Petting Zoo People in fanart, especially the female characters.
* Sawyer from ''WesternAnimation/CatsDontDance'' is a FunnyAnimal on the verge of looking like a borderline PZP in the movie, but is a Petting Zoo Person in most fanart.
* Penelope Pussycat from WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes is a CivilizedAnimal in the {{Canon}}, but she is often drawn as a Petting Zoo Person in fanart.
** Same with the ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' comics character, Honey Bunny, who is a FunnyAnimal in the {{Canon}}.
* The ''VideoGame/DeusExHumanRevolution''+''Franchise/MassEffect'' Fanfic [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8647591/1/A-City-Upon-A-Hill A city upon a hill]] Has humanity advance so much to allow it to [[LegoGenetics hybridise animal and human DNA.]]
* The ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' stories written by Avenging-Hobbits -- ''FanFic/ToBoldlyGo'' and the ''FanFic/HarmonysWarriors'' universe -- anthropomorphize the characters, due to the author's belief that the action sequences of the films being adapted (''Film/StarTrek2009'' and the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse, respectfully) would [[PragmaticAdaptation require bipedal body structures]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Film]]
* Kitty Mouse from ''TheGreatMouseDetective'' is an example, though a lot of the other mice are Borderline PZP.
* Barf from ''Film/{{Spaceballs}}'' is a Mog: half man, half dog.
* All the animals in ''WesternAnimation/FantasticMrFox'' except the dogs, chickens, and wolf are either PZP or borderline PZP.
* Dr. Delbert Doppler, Captain Amelia, and their children from ''TreasurePlanet''.
* ''PlanetOfTheApes''.
* The statue of West Eastman High School's mascot (a bald eagle) from ''Film/AlvinAndTheChipmunks: The Squeakquel'' has a muscular human frame.
* The rats in ''WesternAnimation/FlushedAway''.
* Beans and Angelique the vixen in ''WesternAnimation/{{Rango}}'' are PZP.
* A lot of female penguins in ''WesternAnimation/ThePebbleAndThePenguin'', including Marina, and the TopHeavyGuy villain, Drake are Borderline PZP.

[[folder:Literature]]
* StuartLittle has a humanoid body in the three movies and TV show he has starred in and [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/8796315_1e356b8f43_4152.jpg in the original book]].
* In Creator/RobertEHoward's ConanTheBarbarian story "Literature/TheTowerOfTheElephant", a prisoner in the tower has the head of an elephant and the body of a man.
* In Creator/RobertEHoward's {{Kull}} story "The Shadow Kingdom" the Snakemen have human bodies and reptilian heads.
* In Creator/CJCherryh's ''ChanurSaga'' the viewpoint characters are all Hani, a species which are anthropomorphic lions. The Hani's society is based on Earth lions, with clans of adult females which are each theoretically ruled by an adult male, but in reality the male is merely a pampered figurehead who rubber-stamps the decisions made by the females.
* This is a popular design for androids in Rick Griffin's ''Literature/{{Argo}}''.
* Arol in the Norwegian fantasy series ''Literature/{{Phenomena}}'', who is an icebear commonly called "winter bear" in-story, but sometimes typoed(?) as icebear. He and his tribe wears clothes and armors and talks like everyone else and walks on two a lot. Though he runs on four.
* Some of the kemos in the web-novel ''Literature/{{Domina}}'' fall into this. Most, however, only have [[LittleBitBeastly a few bits here and there]].
* The Fithp in Niven and Pournelle's ''Literature/{{Footfall}}'' have a lot of similar characteristics, both physically and with their "herd" culture, to elephants. This is lampshaded somewhat when they observe elephants in Africa and wonder why they haven't become the dominant Earth species.
* Seen from time to time among the wide assortment of alien species in ''Literature/PerryRhodan''. A particularly conspicuous example, however, would be the mostly-benevolent Duchy of Krandhor introduced in the post-issue #1000 story arc, whose various member species practically ran this trope into the ground -- anthropomorphic lizards, squirrels, (air-breathing) squids and whatnot united under the mostly-benevolent leadership of anthropomorphic "wolf-lions"... The subplot set there didn't exactly prove popular with the established fanbase, and while PettingZooPeople of various stripes have shown up both before and since they never did so again in such a concentrated form.
* Almost everyone in ''Literature/OfFearAndFaith'' is this, including the eight main characters, unless they're a TalkingAnimal instead.
* The feas, the main race of the ''Literature/DestinedToLead'' series, are this.
* The moreaus of S.A. Swann's Literature/MoreauSeries are mostly this, although some early types border on CivilizedAnimal. Moreaus are typicall bipedal, possessing functional hands and full speech capacity. Other human-like traits vary, although they're usually animalistic in appearance, and females lack visible breasts. Some strains have enhanced capacity for facial expression, and a few can even cry.
* The animals of Anna Dewdney's ''Llama Llama'' and ''Nelly Gnu'' picture books are pretty much this.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Mythology and Religion]]
* Some deities from EgyptianMythology are portrayed this way. Not because the Egyptians thought their gods actually looked like this, but because those animals symbolized many characteristics and certain aspects of their respective deity (or were sacred to them) as the bird Ibis was to the god Thoth. (The Gods looked human and the 'Petting-Zoo People' were their [[FurryFandom fursonas]].)
* Some creatures in ClassicalMythology, like [[ALoadOfBull the minotaur]].

* "MagicTheGathering" has quite a few of these. In addition to common fantasy races that fall into this trope (such as minotaurs), you have Homarids (crab people), Viashino (lizard people), Cephalids (squid people), Nantuko (insect people), Aven (bird people), Leonin (cat people), Nacatl (different cat people), Loxodon (elephant people), Kitsune (fox people), Nezumi (rat people), Orochi (snake people), Amphin (salamander people), Wolfir (wolf people), and, in a parody set, Assfolk (donkey people).

** Sly Cooper, a male animal character, is a Borderline PZP.
* The Rawulf race of the later ''VideoGame/{{Wizardry}}'' games are described as descended from dogs. Their statline emphasizes vitality and piety, making them excellent priests and especially valkyries for the females.
* The Rabbits and Pigs from ''{{SWINE}}''.
* The Argonians from ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' are anthropomorphic lizards, yet the females have [[NonMammalMammaries mammaries]] and the males have bulging loincloths. ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'' dropped this, however, with the females in that game having no mammaries and the males having no visible... equipment. Also, in addition are the Khajiit, another beast race which are basically anthropomorphic cats.
** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'' picked it back up though, to the point where the two beast races have human-like bodies, but are covered in fur/scales and have a tail.
* Felica from ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}'' is a borderline case between this trope and LittleBitBeastly.
* The majority of female characters in ''Franchise/CrashBandicoot'', though Tawna and the ''Videogame/CrashTeamRacing'' trophy girls are standout examples. Coco Bandicoot and Pasadena Opossum border as such DependingOnTheArtist.
* One of the most immediately apparent distinguishing characteristics of the ''BreathOfFire'' series.
** They and one or two LittleBitBeastly characters comprise a decreasingly large portion of the playable characters as the series goes on, culminating in the most recent game lacking playable PZP s entirely.

* In ''VideoGame/InheritTheEarth'', the entire cast is like this, more or less, due to humans being extinct.
* {{Avernum}} has the Slithzerikai and Nephilim / Nepharim, which are lizard and cat people respectively.
* ''{{Solatorobo}}'' is populated by [[{{Dogfaces}} Caninu]] and [[CatFolk Felineko]].
* Several [[RidiculouslyHumanRobots Reploids]] in the ''VideoGame/MegaManX'' series are themed after animals, namely the bosses. Some of them aren't so strange (as the animals they're based on have been Petting Zoo People before), such as Tunnel Rhino, Slash Beast (a lion), and Bamboo [[PandaingToTheAudience Panda]][[IncrediblyLamePun monium]], and then, there are the strange choices, such as Jet Stingray, Shield Sheldon (a ''scallop''), and then, based on [[SeldomSeenSpecies one of the most obscure creatures in fiction]], the ''[[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/4e/Daphnia_pulex.png water flea]]'' Reploid known as [[http://images.wikia.com/megaman/images/a/a4/Mmx6infinitymijinion.jpg Infinity Mijinion]].

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Webcomics]]
* ''Webcomic/{{CHEVALIER}}'': The animal characters in this romantic fantasy adventure are a prime example. [[http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/Chevalier Here.]]
* The cast of ''Webcomic/TheCyantianChronicles'' are mostly human-animal hybrids created by an [[{{Precursors}} ancient alien race]], largely divided into digitigrade Ricael (wolves, foxes, coyotes, jackals...), and plantigrade Talin (rabbits, mice, sheep, mounties aka felines...). But there's also quite a few aliens of this form and some new hybrids (most notably fruit-scented skunks and psychic raccoons) created by the fox.
* ''Webcomic/{{Lackadaisy}}'' takes place in an American 1920's where all humans are cats. Other animals such as dogs and pigs exist as we know them; so even though the reader perceives the characters as cats, they are truly and essentially human.
* The heroine of the webcomic ''Webcomic/{{Freefall}}'' is a genetically engineered wolflike humanoid who carries with her a ton of instincts, most of which she can control by concentrating. Her running commentary of how she fits into human society is one of the highlights of the series.
** Just to give you a taste: Florence had to practice ventriloquism to be able to talk right, because she can't use her lips to say P, M, or B. She has to hold herself back from chasing small moving things (she has at least once leapt from a moving vehicle when someone threw a ball). She can hear sounds in a range humans can't, so some places that are quiet to humans are very loud to her, and she had to learn not to shout over sounds nobody but she hears.
** And she really ''must'' remember not to bare her fangs when [[TechnicallyASmile imitating a human smile]]. Although, her horrific grin allows her to get her own way a lot.
** She also can't see all colours, so she carries a device that names objects' colours for her, in case it's important (probably good, considering that her occupation is nuclear engineer). She mentions once having dyed her fur blue because her friends said she looked good in blue - the result didn't exactly work out.
* In ''Webcomic/TwoKinds'', the Wolf-tribe of Keidrans are the most militaristic beastmen faction. One of their princes was supposed to marry a high-ranking politician from the Tiger tribe to legally join forces and take revenge on humanity. There are also dog-keidrans and fox-keidrans.
** Basitins, which are a feline-like species separate from the Keidrans, also count.
* Kira (fox) and Toby (lion) from ''Webcomic/ChivalryAndKnavery''. They describe themselves as humans who have animals among their ancestors, but the details are never elaborated beyond "AWizardDidIt."
* Every character in ''Webcomic/ClosedGate''.
* There are [[CatFolk Tiger People]] visible in the [[http://www.exiern.com/?p=47 background]] of several ''Webcomic/{{Exiern}}'' strips, probably due to its FantasyKitchenSink premise.
* In ''Webcomic/EverydayHeroes'', Uma Quipleure and her father resemble cows. Pity the poor guy who accidentally called Uma a [[http://www.webcomicsnation.com/eddurd/everydayheroes/series.php?view=single&ID=109561 stupid cow]] (which would be like calling a human girl a "big ape"). Uma can also make [[http://www.webcomicsnation.com/eddurd/everydayheroes/series.php?view=single&ID=109976 good use]] of {{Hammerspace}}.
* In ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'', the {{Shape Shifter Default Form}}s of Guineas and Hedge fall under this as do some Seyunolu's (Chimera's) seen in Ellen's Second Life.
* The Ambis in ''Webcomic/{{Jix}}'' bear a slight resemblance to foxes. This was later explained by the fact that a different race of aliens abducted a group of proto-Ambis and planted them on Earth as an experiment and they evolved into foxes. Humans frequently mistake Ambis for "oddly colored dogs".
* GELF in ''Webcomic/{{RankAmateur}}'' are usuallly this. The Virtual Intelligence programs are almost always given this form by their host AIs, as it is supposed to be user-friendly.
* ''Webcomic/{{Zodiac}}'' applies this trope to the Superhero genre.
* ''Webcomic/BittersweetCandyBowl'' has a cast of cats and dogs. Oddly, there are also non-anthropormophic birds, hedgehogs, and lizards which have humanlike intelligence.
* ''Webcomic/SacredGrounds'' has several PZP in its cast.
* ''Webcomic/OzyAndMillie'' takes place in a world completely of PZP, although it's supposed to be an alternate version of our world (the setting is UsefulNotes/{{Seattle}}). Still, real world people have been mentioned but never seen such as Music/JohnLennon, Creator/OscarWilde and UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush. So whether they're talking about animal versions of said celebrities or humans exist but are just never shown is unknown.
* ''Webcomic/{{Terinu}}'' has the Vulpine, which are anthro foxes, and the Galapados (anthro lizards) which exist beside races like the Galen, who are a LittleBitBeastly and the Ferin, who are... god only knows.
* ''Webcomic/{{Outworld}}'' is a sci-fi webcomic that features Petting Zoo People as its main cast.

[[folder:Web Games]]
* All the people in ''Roleplay/NexusGate'' are Petting Zoo People of some sort. Most species of animal can be found though a few, such as various fish, are restricted by the game's rules.
* Green County in ''VideoGame/HiddenAgenda'' is populated by them.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* Every character in ''TrintonChronicles'' are animals evolved partly to human-form.
* Everyone from ''{{Tasakeru}}'' is this.
* ''OrionsArm'' has Splices and Rianths, who are Petting Zoo People created out of humans and animals via LegoGenetics. The difference between a Splice and a Rianth is based on their clade's origins (Rianths are usually descended from humans who made themselves more bestial, while splices tend to be descendants of genetically modified slaves), and is pretty muddled in general.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* Minerva Mink and {{werewolf}} form Wilford B. Wolf from ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}''.
* Julie Bruin, Margot Mallard, Binky Bunny, and Bimbette the skunk from ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures''.
** Arnold the Pit Bull is a borderline PZP.
* The cast of ''WesternAnimation/MoiRenart'', with furries who have almost photo-realistic bodies in modern-day Paris.
* Mousey Galore from ''WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain''.
* Lola Bunny, Melissa Duck, and Hatta Mari (a pigeon from "Plane Daffy") from ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes''.
** Tina Russo from the new ''WesternAnimation/TheLooneyTunesShow''.
** Lola Bunny is more of a borderline Petting Zoo Person in ''WesternAnimation/TheLooneyTunesShow''.
* The majority of humanlike animal characters in ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'' are Petting Zoo People but some of them are an edge case of LittleBitBeastly.
** For example, Buster Baxter is a Petting Zoo Person because his head looks reasonably rabbitlike, but his mother and father border on LittleBitBeastly because their heads look like human heads with rabbit ears and noses on them.
* Cleo from ''WesternAnimation/HeathcliffAndTheCatillacCats'', although falling most into HumanoidFemaleAnimal territory.
* Kitty Katswell from ''WesternAnimation/TUFFPuppy'' is a straight example of PZP and Dudley Puppy is a borderline example.
* The main cast of ''WesternAnimation/LoonaticsUnleashed''.
* The main cast of ''WesternAnimation/RoadRovers'' are normal dogs who get turned into Petting Zoo People by a mysterious scientist known as "The Master".
* The ''WesternAnimation/SWATKats'' cast, though some of the characters are Borderline LittleBitBeastly.
* {{Goofy}}, [[WesternAnimation/GoofTroop Max]], [[ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse Gyro Gearloose]], and [[WesternAnimation/DuckTales Launchpad McQuack]] are different from MickeyMouse and DonaldDuck, fitting Borderline PZP or PZP more than they do FunnyAnimal. While they do have obviously dishuman features they are still far more humanoid than most of Disney's creations in the animal zoo world they live in.
** But Goofy's prototype, Dippy Dawg, was [[HalfDressedCartoonAnimal halfdressed]] and more or less a FunnyAnimal.
** In a similar vein to the above, the three Nephews and Daisy were shifted into a borderline PZP style during ''WesternAnimation/QuackPack''. Donald, however, retained his standard design (although his body stands up a little straighter than normal, but not by enough to change where he falls).
** Fenton Crackshell's girlfriend Gandree Dee in ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' is very much a PZP.
* Ren's parents from ''[[WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow Ren & Stimpy Adult Party Cartoon]]''.
* The mice in the more recent CG ''WesternAnimation/AngelinaBallerina'' OVA are either Petting Zoo People or Borderline PZP, unlike the mice in the original version of the series.
* Mirage from the ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'' series. In the words of WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick, "Why does she have a cat head... who cares?"
* Many of the female cats in ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry'' including Toodles Galore are either PZP or borderline PZP.
* Mordecai on ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'' is a naked humanoid blue jay, somewhere between a FunnyAnimal and a Borderline PZP. His crush, Margaret (a cardinal), is even closer to this trope, as is Rigby's older brother Don (despite also being nude). Mordecai's somewhat humanoid design contrasts quite a lot with Rigby's raccoon appearance, which isn't humanized that much.
** Despite being about the same size as Rigby, Eileen probably counts. She's a mole with a FurryFemaleMane, [[NonMammalMammaries human-like breasts]], and "fur" the color of a human skintone. Only her tail makes it obvious she's not human.
* Fox from ''SkunkFu'' is a Borderline PZP.
* About half the cast of ''WesternAnimation/{{Animalympics}}''.
* In the second cartoon series, but not in the two live-action movies, WesternAnimation/AlvinAndTheChipmunks are either Borderline Petting Zoo People or straight-up Petting Zoo People and the Chipettes are Borderline LittleBitBeastly.
* Lieutenant M'Ress in ''WesternAnimation/StarTrekTheAnimatedSeries''.
* Creator/{{Terrytoons}}' ''WesternAnimation/MightyMouse'' is an example of TopHeavyGuy as well as this trope.
* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Thundercats 2011}}'' the main cast of Thundercats are BeastFolk [[{{Catfolk}} Cats]], but other Animals, like [[{{Dogfaces}} Dogs]] [[LizardFolk Lizards]] and {{Fishmen}} are designed as this type.
* A painting of King Julien that Maurice was painting in one episode of ''WesternAnimation/ThePenguinsOfMadagascar'' depicts him with this appearance.
* In ''WesternAnimation/MuzzyInGondoland'' most inhabitants of Gondoland look like dogs. Goblinoid Corvax was supposed to be a bat. Extraplanetary Muzzy is a green [[BearyFunny bear]]. The king looks like a lion.
* The characters of the French-Canadian {{Animesque}} show ''WesternAnimation/TheMysteriesOfAlfredHedgehog'' fit this trope, and with some characters, it's closer to Borderline LBB. Humanlike hair on male characters, some characters pretty much lacking a muzzle and just having a fur-covered human face with an animal-like nose, and (most surprisingly) humanlike ears are featured.
