Depends on my mood. But I prefer anthro for a furry but feral for RP.

I am all for Feral, but Anthro is more me.  Don't know why exactly...

Traditionally a 'furry' is defined as an 'anthropomorphic character'. Many furries can shift to feral form, but if your 'animalistic' all the time then aint that a different fandom?  :???:

I believe that they are different fandoms. Furries are traditionally defined as anthropomorphic animals, which means animals with human traits. If you take away the human traits and become Feral you are no longer an anthro, which means you are no longer a Furry.

Don't you know what 'Physical' means? After all, you used the word. It means "involving the body as distinguished from the mind or spirit". So, anything about the body that is changed to be more human is anthropomorphic. Giving an animal thumbs that does not normally have thumbs is a physical change.

What I mean by a word is almost always the Dictionary definition. Standing on two legs can count, depending on the animal. If you're a bird then standing on two legs isn't necesarilly anthropomorphic. However, if you're a tiger or a wolf then standing on two legs does count as anthropomorphic. Like I said before, Anthropomorphic means giving something human traits. That includes speach, wearing clothes, walking upright, etc.

Actually Flinch makes a good statement feral animals (i.e. people who are feral all the time are a different fandom altogether).

Um...where'd the rest of my comment go??
Anyway..

Yup, pretty much all my characters have an anthro and feral form, or rather the ability to stand up on two legs since they don't actually go through a physical morphing process....

If I was an animal, I must admit that I would rather be feral than anthro. It's easier to animals to move around on four legs than two, and I have wild fantasies of running through nature in a feral body...I would much like to fulfill those.

And in terms of art, I don't have a preference. :>

Maybe when science can create those genuine virtual reality things when you go through the sensations and feelings you will be able to fulfil that fantasy Para.

That would be amazing. I've got my hopes up for that. :3
I had my luck on the furry transformation files for a while, but recently they haven't been working. :/

well, I'm a therian... and for some reason... usually if I'm around people between 1am - 3am... my therian counterpart loves to growl and get pissed off.... and has no tolerance and can't think straight.... Its basically my feral side... however my anthro side... is a genius.. I have an IQ of 156 SO... YEA.... in my feral mode it drops to about 96.... though.... I'm very submissive so I prefer ferals.... for obvious reason...

I don't have a preference. Seth has both an anthro and feral form, and I could never choose one over the other. When I first joined the fandom, I preferred anthro, but after seeing art of both, I started to like them both equally.
