There are non-anthropomorphic (normal non human-like) animals in the Happy Tree Friends world. Like the Happy Tree Friends, they can be killed in bloody, gruesome ways. In other cases, they are the cause of a character's death.

They appear again in Take a Hike, this time showing no hostility to Nutty when he is slurping honey from a hive.
