Art or stories where characters contain a mixture of animal and human characteristics.
Most anthropomorphic characters walk on two legs, speak and often wear clothes. They are fantasy creatures.
They can exist on a spectrum from having almost all animal characteristics, with only a few human traits, or being almost all human with a few animal traits.
Some people in the furry
fandom prefer the term anthropomorphic to describe the art, writing and role playing they engage in. It is a more inclusive term, as many anthro characters combine human traits with the traits of non-furry animals, such as lizards, dinosaurs and birds.
