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 legs, but some may use a tail for locomotion. Marine and snakelike anthros are a common example of this.

Species that normally have a long neck as ferals (such as equines and dragons) tend to have a much shorter one when drawn as anthros. Anthro shoulders are also usually human-like.

Anthros tend to retain animal-like facial structure, such as snout. Creatures with fully human-like faces are typically humanoid instead of anthro.

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.
