I like Sergals in the main, but I'm never quite sure what the copyright status of them is. Lots of people seem to draw them, but they are a recent creation and are technically still owned by their creator; maybe there's some kind of open license attached to them that I don't know about?

Oh yeah, and Joltik? Clearly not an insect ;) for one, it's only got four legs. For another, ticks are arachnids. :D

I find it incredibly ironic you feel the need to say the difference between arachnids and insects yet you can't tell the difference between a fish and an aquatic mammal.

I thought someone might mention that ;) Note that the fish option says 'INCLUDING sharks and dolphins', in other words they are lumped in with them for convenience. It's a common turn of phrase used to indicate the inclusion of unrelated but allied concepts. It is the morphology that we're interested in here, not the strict definition of taxonomical descendence. I didn't want to put 'Cetaceans' because I wanted to keep the terminology simple. For the same reason I put 'Hoofed Animals' rather than 'Ungulates'.

Should have just put "Aquatic animals" then. :V
..But then that might count otters and such.. Hm. No way to win!

I guess I find most mammals appealing. Then it would be reptiles. Birds and fish are better non-anthropomorphized though, in my opinion.
Oh, but griffins are nice.

Yup, also octopuses (or octopodera if you prefer) sea anemones, crabs, jellyfish, sponges... 'Aquatic' is a pretty broad term!
I did toy with the idea of putting 'Mythical Creatures' as its own option, but thought that there were too many potentially different body-forms in that category.
Griffins are nice though, aren't they? :) I quite like harpies too.

Me, I don't mind anthro birds, but I can never decide whether I prefer them to have proper arms or 'feather fingers'. They're not amongst my favourites though.

Snow leopards are pretty appealing.
Females though, male snow leopards just don't click. Maybe I just hadn't found the right artist, I dunno.

I've seen a few rather attractive male snow leopards. Maybe I'm biased though? ><

Also, may I give you hugs? q.q

Hmm. Now I'm wondering, how many of the Reptile votes would have been lost if I'd put dragons in as a separate option… :)

Depends on if Argonians are categorised as reptiles. If so, then I would still support it.

Well designed ones for sure,
I also find myself liking furs that are away from the mainstream cartoon style [sorry if saying that insults people]
or simply unique.

It's especially nice if it go's further then taking an animal and popping their head, tail and fur on a human body..

I'm with you there. Some of my favourite anthros are basically ferals with bipedal locomotion.

Well, I prefer males but female snow leopards just seem prettier. Or they just automatically strike me as feminine already.

Also yes :3

Your argument is invalid.
