Kemonomimi is a Japanese term that translates as "animal-ears"; it refers to characters who are so dramatically anthropomorphized that their only visible animal characteristics are Unusual Ears and a tail; the rest of their appearance is human — this is the current definition stated in the article.

Discussions in Trope Repair Shop indicate that "Petting Zoo People" actually covers two tropes, and if we're going to hard-split them into separate articles (see the Page Action Crowner), at least one of these will need a new name so we can tell the two apart.

If you can think up a concise "pro" or "con" point for an option that doesn't have them, feel free to edit it in.
