An animal character that is depicted in its natural (real) form.
It can sometimes be difficult to determine if a creature is anthro or feral, but try to use your best judgement.
Non-animal characters should never be tagged as feral.
Note that for tagging purposes, the level of intelligence (sapience) does not matter. For example, Scooby-Doo is still a feral even though he thinks and talks just like his human friends.
Not to be confused with:
- monster, animal-like monsters are tagged as feral
- robot, robots modeled after animals are also feral
