Anthropomorphic animals.

Anthropomorphism means attaching human traits such as human-like intelligence and physical form to non-human things. But since this describes most non-human characters on e621 and intelligence can be difficult to tag, the anthro tag is specifically used only for animal-like 'furry' characters. This includes mythological animals such as dragons and gryphons, and original creations such as sergals.

Anthros are usually bipedal and have human-like arms and feet, but some may use a tail for locomotion. Marine and snakelike anthros are a common example of this.

In borderline cases between feral and anthro, if the character couldn't pass off as a feral animal, it should be tagged as anthro. Use the overall body shape and posture when determining which tag is more appropriate.
