  • While Zootopia is an all-mammal city, it is hinted by the directors that birds, reptiles, and amphibians have their own cities on other continents.[1][2][3][4] Fish and invertebrates are used as a food source by the predators.
    • Birds are mentioned in the lyrics of Try Everything, which proves they exist in the world of Zootopia.
    • Furthermore, a poster for La La Lamb, a parody of the film La La Land, has the name "Emu Stone", marking the first named bird in the film's universe.
    • Also, the silhouette of Pascal the chameleon from Tangled can be seen on one of the medals on the wall of Chief Bogo's office. This may possibly be the only evidence of reptiles existing in this universe if they do.
  • The directors stated that the reason they only used mammals is that the predator-prey relationships are the widest in the animal world, which was a big part of the film and setting. They also stated that mammals are easier to animate as anthropomorphic creatures.
  • There are at least 64 different unique species of mammal seen in the film. However, in order to tell each one apart, every single background mammal in the film is given over 1000 unique outfit combinations for each mammal to wear; some mammals always wear shorts instead of long pants due to the unusual shape of their legs, and all of the armadillo characters wear their clothes underneath their shells.
  • According to Disney, the only mammals that do not appear in Zootopia at all are primates (monkeys, apes, and lemurs), domesticated dogs and cats, and marine mammals (whales, dolphins, pinnipeds, etc). This may have been due to the fact that Disney considers primates too similar to humans, dogs and cats too domesticated (though dingoes (descendants of dogs gone feral) are featured in the book The Stinky Cheese Caper), and marine mammals too difficult to accommodate in the setting.
    • However, a parody poster featured an actor named "Mark Wahlrus" (a pun on Mark Wahlberg and walrus), suggesting that pinnipeds may exist, but do not live in Zootopia.[5]
    • In the credits, Mayor Lionheart is seen reading a magazine in prison called Fancy Cats that has a picture on the cover of a domestic cat, which implies that even domesticated cats exist.
  • In the CD read-along, monkey chattering is heard, which implies that primates do exist. Parody posters also apparently had someone named Annie Lemurvitz as the photographer.
  • Bats and Australian monotremes are not seen for unknown reasons, although they do exist. Bats live in the Nocturnal Disrict,[6] while monotremes are featured in the book The Stinky Cheese Caper as residents of Outback Island. A bat also makes an appearance in a toy set based on the film and in 'The Art of Zootopia'.
  • While being chased by Bellwether and her minions, Judy and Nick use a figure of what seems to be a jackalope as a distraction. This is the only fictional animal to appear in the film.
  • While Judy and Nick enter the Museum of Natural History, a statue of a woolly mammoth can be briefly seen at the entrance. This is the only extinct animal featured in the film.
  • It is unknown why domesticated horses, pigs, sheep, and other farm animals exist in the world of Zootopia, as there are no humans that had bred them.
  • The flies buzzing around Yax's head are the only non-mammalian and non-anthropomorphic animals seen throughout the film.
  • Sheep in the film (excluding Bellwether and the lambs) have horizontal pupils like their real-world counterparts, while most other species have human-style eyes.
