Sliding Scale of Animal Species and Type Ambiguity and Accuracy

A) Cartoon Creature or Ambiguous Animal Type and Species

No set animal type or species

Ver 1) Little or no resemblance to any real world species or animal type

Ver 2) Vague resemblance to a real world animal type and little or no resemblance to any real world animal species

Ver 3) Close resemblance to a real world animal type and either little to no or a vague resemblance to a real world animal species

Ver 4) Close resemblance to a real world animal species

B) Informed Animal Type

Set animal type and no set animal species, but has little or no resemblance to any real world animal species or its respective animal type

Ver 1) Little or no resemblance to any real world animal type

Ver 2) Greater vague resemblance to another real world animal type

Ver 3) Greater close resemblance to another real world animal type

C) Informed Species and Animal Type

Set animal species, but little or no resemblance to its respecitve species or even its respective animal type

Ver 1) Little or no resemblance to any real world animal type or species

Ver 2) Greater vague resemblance to another real world animal type

Ver 3) Greater close resemblance to another real world animal type

D) Generic Set Animal Type

Set animal type and no set animal species, identifiably and obviously its respective set animal type (cartoon monkeys, frogs and toads, turtles, and songbirds commonly fall into this trope)

Ver 1) Little to no resemblance to any real world species within its respective animal type

Ver 2) Vague resemblance to a real world species within its respective animal type

Ver 3) Close resemblance to a real world species within its respecitve animal type

E) Informed Species Obvious Set Animal Type

Set animal species, identifiably and obviously its set animal type, but has little or no resemblance to its respecitve species within its set animal type

Ver 1) Little or no resemblance to any real world species within its respective animal type

Ver 2) Greater vague resemblance to another real world species within its respective animal type than to its respective species

Ver 3) Greater close resemblance to another real world species within its respective animal type than to its respective species

F) Biologically Inaccurate Obvious Set Species

Identifiable and obvious set animal species, but can have a few or some major or glaring biological inaccuracies in their character design (like rabbits with pawpads and dog or cat noses and insects with four legs)

G) Mostly Biologically Accurate Obvious Set Species

Identifiable, obvious, and mostly accurate set animal species; can be rendered or drawn in a stylized manner as long they don’t have any major or glaring biological inaccuracies in their character design (blinking snakes and owls that move their eyes are biological inaccuracies but very minor ones)

H) Completely Biologically Accurate Obvious Set Species

Identifiable, obvious, and completely accurate set animal species; hard to do except in photorealistically rendered animated works
