Do your characters fit proper dietary needs?
« on: April 29, 2017, 08:52:29 pm »
Surely everyone here has an anthropomorphic character (with most of them representing themselves)-Furries as an species are animals with human characteristics, but does you Sona/OC's follow proper a proper diet?
I'm not talking about being healthy, but rather than depending on meat, veggies, or both-If anthros have spent many years evolving with human characteristics, can't herbivores eat meat and carnivores eat veg?

I think as anthropomorphics being civilized and advanced like we are, being able to cope with eating any foods despite their dietary needs-For example domestic cat cannot process milk once fully dependent, eventually becoming lactose intolerant

Bears rely on meat and protein but their organs are capable of processing veggies (mainly berries) into energy, thus making them omnivores like us

However I believe that anthros did not evolve from humans, meaning that humans did not breed with animals-More like they've evolved on their own world (becoming a civilization like the human race)

Anyways, does your character eat meats or veggies despite being herbivore or carnivore? Do you think it's wrong or weird for animals to eat their own kind for energy?

The only way my sonas/ocs fit into the accurate diet thing is being like, vegetarian or not. Sugar doesn't eat meat but she'll eat anything else, like pizza and chips and she probably drinks soda all the time. George is the same.

-Nagi is a mix of a bunch of things really, including felines and somehow has vampiric traits. She looks and acts more like a cat she also has pointed teeth, she doesn;t require blood in her diet so much(like she can last much longer without than say Lorii) and will and can eat anything but I like to think of her as more like a carnivore. So with that in mind no :P I don't think she eats as much meat or anything as she should.
-Lorii is a rat, rats are omnivores they may not eat exactly what a human does but I like to think she would but being a vampire she mostly feeds on blood so could be considered more of a carnivore but still eats normal foods.
-Axolotls are carnivorous but Spider will and can eat anything.
Honestly I like to think of my anthros more like human hybrids(Nagi actually is) so 90% of them are omnivores by default whether their species is or not.

Foxi is a strict carnivore, with only a couple exceptions. If it's not meat, pie or berries, she won't eat it.

Katsuro doesn't eat all that much, but when he does, it's usually someone's soul meat of some sort.

Karasu is a dragon. A human-eating dragon.

Kyro doesn't care. She likes veggies and meat both.

avery; is an omnivore. they'll eat anything (mainly really unhealthy stuff, veggies defiantly aren't on their menu). three toed sloths are typically foliavores (aka only eats leaves) so defiantly not.

blue; he's a vegetarian, so herbivore. I believe his breed of rats are herbivores, so yes.

nova; a bloodsucking vampire, so carnivore? cannibal? i dont know. Fruit bats in real life don't have that diet, so no.

none of my fursonas are meant to be realistic. r.i.p

I've always imagined that most of fursonas live in a world exactly like ours but with anthros so this is an interesting questions. I think I'd like to image that carnivores have evolved to eat plants and herbivores have evolved to eat meat so the majority of the population is omblnivore but theres still vegetarians and vegans

Mystic, Addison and Aria are vegetarians

Amelia, Tamara, Laila, California, Zoey and Brook are omnivores

Pepper is a herbivore since she's a feral horse and feral horses are herbivores

Dutch Angel Dragons technically don't need to eat anything but Faye tends to prefer foods that don't contain meat such as strawberries

Well, Bluefox is an anthro folf so he eats mainly meat, but as a canine he gets a basic nutrition of vegetables. Felines are the only true carnivores.
Sprite is a fictional creature, so I need not worry about it. He gets his full nutrition from well, Sprite.
Marvin being another fictitious creature, I need not worry about that much of a diet problem. According to protogen anatomy, they can process anything into raw energy and waste. So tea, cookies, and middle eastern take-out food is probably his diet.

I laugh so hard anytime I see this thread, I don't know why.

Cleo, despite being a dog, is a vegetarian because I am. Regardless, she survives mostly on sweets and iced coffee.
Exxus rarely ever eats, but when he does it's usually whatever he can find. He's not a healthy person.

Serana is a cougar, cougars are carnivores. She's also a vampire who are also carnivores.
She drinks blood often as well as eat meat but will indulge in sweets/junk food a bit as well and throw in some fruits and vegetables when cooking sometimes or as a snack.
So no she doesn't fit her proper dietry needs, but like I said earlier my anthros are more like human hybrids so its not totally unnatural or unhealthy for a natural carnivore to eat non-meats and may even become vegetarian.

Foxi survives on meat, seafood, and pie.

Katsuro eats meat and... well... souls. But since he can't always get to those, he does enjoy meat.

Kyro likes mostly fruit/vegetables and cake.

Karasu prefers vegetables and fruit, despite being a dragon.

Onyx likes sweets of any sort, not much in the way of real food.

Raven likes mostly berries, and occasionally meat.

Midnight likes only meat, and Dusk prefers things having to do with pastry and cheese, like pizza.

Vince will only eat sweets or berries of some sort.

Shieru likes shrimp/crab or other meat, mostly.

Silaluk is a pure carnivore. She only eats meat, nothing else. She IS a tiger...
