Animal Character Developmental Process Anthropomorphic ShiftsWith some animal characters, an Anthropomorphic Shift occurs as they grow and develop. Often, they grow more anthropomorphic, but sometimes the inverse can occur. If the animal character is a Petting Zoo Person to begin with, then they become more distinctly anthropomorphic as they grow and develop. With female characters that become more anthropomorphic as they grow, they often develop Non-Mammal Mammaries.
