I DEMAND MORE LEEM SONAS

LOOK AT THIS BEAUTIFUL MADAGASCAN TREE BABY WITH HIS SNAGGLE TEEFS

(Its a red ruffed lemur (Varecia Rubra), native to a smol peninsula in northeastern Madagascar. There's also Black and White Ruffed Lemurs (Varecia Variegata) down the entire Eastern Coast)

But anyway yeah post uncommon animals you want to see more sonas of

Vervet monkeys.

More primates in general - both apes and monkeys.

I think Gibbons and Siamangs could work quite well with their goblin-esque stature and poofiness

But yes, especially Lemurs. Give us more Leems. They don't even look vaguely humanlike, which I think is the issue most primates suffer from in this community.

Except maybe the Babakoto. It literally looks like an Anthro.

I started a thread here some time ago, asking why so few primates in the fandom. Their closeness to humans was the most common factor.

It probably is. I just saw an opportunity to spread skunk second so I took it

I really haven't seen that many skunks but I've only been here a few days, so hopefully that'll change.

There's a few of us around here, but all in all, it doesn't seem to be among the most common species.

@Thrashy and @Pygmepatl are the two other skunks who've been active most recently, around these parts. But it's always good to have more skunks; we especially need to keep an eye on the foxes and wolves!

Reptile that are not a gator, cobra, or dragon. What I would really like to see is characters based on lesser seen reptiles that are super pretty like Lace monitors, Andros Island Iguanas, and Blue Beauty Ratsnakes
My sona is a lace monitor! There are so many gorgeous reptiles people overlook. Ever seen a Mexican alligator lizard? What about a red-eyed crocodile skink? Real lizards that look just like tiny dragons

Don't even get me started on white-lipped pythons. They're iridescent

So are Brazillian rainbow boas

Monitor lizards have an incredible amount of variation too

Spend the time looking around. There are so many reptiles that nobody even knows about that could easily become an interesting sona!

Honestly I spent years debating whether to go for a feline or reptilian sona. The former may have won out but I'd like to revisit the latter at some point.

Also check out Basilisk Lizards. They're pretty cool

Awesome. My parents are looking after a Green Tree Monitor at home and my alt sona is partially based on this. More reptiles I think deserve more love are

The fandom certainly needs more colorful and hypnotic animals, like cephalopods with the ability to change color and shape.

While it's almost impossible to anthropomorphize them in a good way, I still feel that seeing sonas with similar traits would be pretty cool!

There are a lot of animals nowadays that are being underutilized. There are many obscure ones that would look good in real life but everyone is about dogs, cats, angel dragons and so on and so forth. I mean, yeah, it makes sense most identify with those creatures because we'll, most grew up with them, but a little more diversity wouldn't hurt. I quite like birds myself, I wonder what a cockatoo would look like as a fursuit...

98% of all ocean life.
Essentially we need more sea life outside of sharks and dolphins.
For example...

Expanding on what was posted above, I definitely think anyone into colorful animals would love the Satanic Leaf Tailed Gecko and Giant Leaf Tailed Gecko.

Satanic:




Giant:



Bonus appeal if you're into hypnosis.

The Union Island Gecko is also an under-known but very colorful gecko:
