''[[http://zoophobiacomic.com/ Zoophobia]]'' is a fantasy/humour webcomic by Vivienne Medrano about a neurotic young woman named Cameron who, when desperate for a job, winds up being unexpectedly thrust into Safe Haven, a fantastic world full of incredible beasts, unimaginable beings and zany characters. She receives a job as a guidance counselor at the Zoo-Phoenix Academy, where she faces head-on with a colorful cast of talking animals and strange creatures. Unfortunately, Cameron has quite the terrible case of [[TitleDrop zoophobia]] and is ultimately terrified by the very students and staff she must work with.

'''Now has a [[{{Characters/Zoophobia}} character page!]]'''

The comic is currently on an indefinite hiatus, with a possible {{reboot}} in the works.

Note: Links may not work due to a site revamp.

!!This comic provides examples of:

* AerithAndBob: There are characters named Vanexa, Zechariah, Venganza and Afkinz, then there are those called Jack, Tom and Nathan.
%%* AChatWithSatan: Major Styx has one of these; to be expected however since Satan is his boss.
* AllThereInTheManual: Some characters and themes are explained and expanded on in character sheets and by [[WordOfGod Vivienne]] herself.
* {{Amazing Technicolor Wildlife}}/{{Amazing Technicolor Population}}: The characters that are standard, garden-variety humans and talking animals have perfectly ordinary coloration. There aren't many characters in this comic that fit that description.
* AmbiguouslyBrown: Just what ethnicity are Mirage, Phineas and Camilla?
** Actually, WordOfGod is that Camilla is Hispanic.
* AntiAntiChrist: Damian, quite literally. He's the son of {{Satan}} himself, but prefers to hang out with his friends on the surface world. At first he does so against his father's wishes, but after telling his parents how much he hates living in Hell, Satan agrees to allow him to continue visiting the surface.
%%* AnimalEyes
* AnimalsNotToScale: Some animals, such as Fabian, Zechariah, and Jackie in bird form, are enormous compared to how their species would look in real life. Cameron at one point [[LampshadeHanging outright refers to the animals as "oversized."]]
* AnythingThatMoves: WordOfGod states that the demon Angel will go after anything that moves.
* ArtEvolution:The site relaunch on July 29th, 2013 that followed a months-long hiatus brought with it new and improved artwork, with backgrounds featuring far more details, shading and colouring becoming more intense and attractive, and an overall cleaner look.
%%* BeautyEqualsGoodness: Subverted with Adina.
%%** And averted with a lot of the villains.
%%* BeautyIsBad: Phineas and Castello.
%%** WordOfGod is that the latter is "one of the meanest male characters in the entire story".
%%* BigBad: Numerous ones.
%%* CartoonyEyes
* CastOfSnowflakes: Unsurprisingly, they started out as just a bunch of characters the artist drew before deciding to make a comic about them.
* CasualDangerDialogue: Reconciling with your girlfriend while your teacher fights the deranged vampire that just chomped on your neck not even a second ago several feet away isn't the ''best'' idea.
--> '''Zill:''' No! I'm sorry for everything! Forgetting our anni-\\
'''Kayla:''' Zill, you're seriously still thinking about that with what is currently happening?
%%* CoolPlane: Snake’s plane.
%%* CuteLittleFangs: An abundant trait amongst both human-like and creature characters.
%%* CuteMonsterGirl: Nearly every single monster girl.
%%** And there are some cute monster guys as well.
%%* DarkIsNotEvil: A majority of the Hell residents, even Lucifer himself.
%%* DarkSkinnedRedhead: Camilla.
* DistractedByTheSexy: The general reaction to [[http://zoophobiacomic.com/comic/tentadora-2/ Tentadora's arrival at the school]].
* DramaticThunder: During Cameron's interview, a bolt of lightning strikes outside the window as the interviewer stoically looks for a position for Cameron. [[{{Foreshadowing}} It's one of the first hints that something about the interview isn't quite right.]]
%%* DreamSequence: "The Dream" arcs.
%%* EnsembleCast
%%* EvilIsHammy: Horris.
%%* ExtraEyes: The Cyanocitta and Aracknis.
%%* {{Fainting}}: [[http://zoophobiacomic.com/Zoophobia?page_id=283 Happens to Cameron]] after she sees Zech [[RightBehindMe standing behind her]].
* FantasyKitchenSink: In the world of Zoophobia, we have shapeshifters, [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampires]], [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent werewolves]], [[SirensAreMermaids sirens]], menaces (related to sirens, but more aggressive), [[OurAngelsAreDifferent angels]], [[OurDemonsAreDifferent demons]], banshees, reapers, nature spirits, unicorns, [[OurDragonsAreDifferent dragons]] and many, many more species all existing together.
* FantasticRacism:
** Some avians consider themselves superior to other species, especially when it comes to performing arts.
** [[http://zoophobiacomic.com/comic/leeson-2/ Leeson]] freaks out when he realizes Damian is a [[http://zoophobiacomic.com/comic/demon-4/ demon]]. The use of the trope is justified for two reasons. 1) He was a fundamentalist Christian. 2) [[spoiler:Demons are not allowed in the area.]]
* FeatherFingers: Averts this. Any creature who can't pick up/hold things in their natural form has a human form.
%%* FishPeople: The Aquians.
%%* ForgottenAnniversary: The second story arc "The Anniversary/The Talent Show" revolves around Zill and Kayla's.
%%* FourFingeredHands
%%* FunnyAnimal
%%* FunnyAnimalAnatomy

* HighSchool: The story revolves around the students and staff of the Zoo-Phoenix Academy.
* HookerWithAHeartOfGold: Despite her outwardly tough and promiscuous demeanour, Camilla is just a misunderstood girl with a bad reputation.
* HornyDevil: Tom and Tam are an incubus and a succubus, respectively.
* INeedAFreakingDrink: Set up and paid off [[http://zoophobiacomic.com/post/127354389479 in a single page]]. Given everything that's happened to Cameron so far, the fact that ''this'' pushes her over the edge is telling.
* IfItsYouItsOkay: Non-romantic variation, Cameron seems to be at her least fearful ([[NervousWreck though that's not saying much]]) when around [[ReasonableAuthorityFigure Zechariah]] and [[GenkiGirl Jackie]]. At least until she finds out that Jackie is actually a giant shapeshifting bird rather than a human. [[spoiler:And who says it's not romantic with Zech?]]
%%* IfJesusThenAliens: Subverted.
%%-->'''Zech:''' "Aliens do not exist, Miss Cameron."
* InterspeciesRomance
** Kayla is a kangaroo, Zill is a demon-chimera mix.
** Alanzo and Jackie are both macaws, but different species.
** Jack's description states that he's a "jackal-mutt", which would suggest that his cousin is a "jackal-devil".
%%** Fabian tries flirting with Cameron, among others.
* JerkassRealization: As the [[TitleDrop title would suggest]], Cameron has an enormous fear of animals and when she isn't frozen from fear, she tends to blindly attack anyone around her. This leads her to have to apologize to the mailman daily for constantly swatting him with a baseball bat or some other weapon. She admits that she needs to work on this.
* LightIsNotGood: Adina, a KnightTemplar angel who believes that all sinful beings need to be purged from the world, (namely Damian).
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: This series has already introduced up to about 50 characters within only it's first 3 arcs. And the third arc isn't even complete yet. The creator has [[http://vivzcast.tumblr.com/ an entire Tumblr]] devoted to listing the characters.
%%* MagicalLand
* MarshmallowHell: Damien finds Tentadora's hugs [[http://zoophobiacomic.com/comic/shut-up-2/ embarassing]]. "That woman raised me!"
* MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate: Chastopher, the school nurse, whose introduction has him preparing to examine Cameron [[NoodleImplements with a screwdriver,]] because [[CompanionCube his stuffed unicorn]] told him she needed a checkup.
* MorphicResonance: Shapeshifters all have hair and eyes matching the fur/feather/scale pattern of the animal they transform into.
* MrExposition: Jack while explaining his [[http://www.zoophobiacomic.com/Zoophobia/?p=478 curse]] and telling his [[http://www.zoophobiacomic.com/Zoophobia/?p=486 entire backstory]] to Cameron, and this as-of-yet unnamed staff member's InfoDump, also [[http://www.zoophobiacomic.com/Zoophobia/?p=416 to Cameron]].
* MulticoloredHair: Just about every shapeshifter has 2 or 3 colours in their hair. This is to match the colouring of their animal forms.
%%* NoodlePeople: And not [[FunnyAnimal just]] [[FunnyAnimalAnatomy people.]]
* NotDistractedByTheSexy: Addison is unfazed by Tentadora's attractiveness, which is only natural being that he's gay. Damian as well for the obvious reason being that she's his nanny.
* OfficialCouple: Zill and Kayla are the token couple.
** As are Jackie and Alonzo, who are HappilyMarried.
%%* OhCrap: Happens to Zill after Sahara reminds him of his and Kayla's anniversary.
* OurDemonsAreDifferent: A good percentage of Hell's inhabitants are very benign, hospitable, and even silly.
* OurVampiresAreDifferent: Animals can become vampires and being bitten alone doesn't cause one to turn. Requiring an elaborate and drawn out ceremony instead.
* OrwellianRetcon: Gunther and Afkinz were two character that Vivienne purchased from another artist. However, a copyright dispute led Vivienne led her to replace them with [[{{Expy}} expies]] in the form of Gustav and Mackenzie. In addition, there was originally a nine-page story called "the Dream". However, Vivienne removed it because she felt it was too weak of an introduction the characters involved.
* PinchMe: After ending up in Chastopher's office and running into Zech again, Cameron convinces herself that she is merely dreaming, and tries to pull this by [[http://zoophobiacomic.com/post/127351653299 yelling at herself to wake up.]] [[http://zoophobiacomic.com/post/127351661294 It doesn't work out.]]
* PrehensileTail: A majority of the quadrupedal characters possess these, even if they are species that don't naturally have them in real life. Examples seen so far include Zechariah, Fabian and Simon, despite being a cheetah, fox and coyote/vampire hybrid respectively.
* PyroManiac: Apparently Damian tricked his cousin Jack into dating one. It ended with her setting him on fire.
%%* QuirkyTown
* RapunzelHair
** Afkinz's hair is so long that at one point he trips by stepping on it.

* {{ShapeShifting}}: [=KayCee=] and Jillian. [[note]]What separates these two is that the forms they are able to take are unlimited, while the animal shapeshifters have only one other form.[[/note]]
** Many, many characters are animal shapeshifters. So far, there have been avians (birds), serpentines (snakes), aquaians (fish and sea creatures) and deer spirits.
*** [[WordOfGod Vivienne]] states that only characters whose animal forms are limited (such as being unable to hold something due to having hooves or wings instead of paws/hands) have a human form to help them fit in society.
* SecurityCling: Damian jumps into [[ParentalSubstitute Tentadora's]] arms when [[{{Satan}} his father]] makes an entrance.
** Cameron also clings to Jackie when Sahara's magic explodes during her talent show audition.
* SleepingDummy: [[http://zoophobiacomic.com/comic/daxler-2/ How Damien skips out on his tutoring to go to school]]. Not only does the tutor never suspect a thing, he believes he hears Damien answer his questions.

* SpeakOfTheDevil: Happens to Styx when he's scolding Bob and Larry for all the recent unruly demon activity.
