Much closer zoomorphically to feral, than the above

(note the differences of humanoid hands + hind-paws in both, with breasts in the first, and a flatter torso in the second)

-

Arguably, there's a high probability someone (who perhaps isn't as aware of the subtle differences) would say everything sans the feral (or maybe even that one too) are just anthro, and tag them as such

Which isn't wrong at all, because the definition and scope for the term 'anthro' is so wide/broad.
It would be silly to blame someone for 'miscategorization'

What I am proposing however, is tagging the ambiguous cases like these with multiple body types


Perhaps, in addition to 'semi-anthro' or whatever the new name is. (see my explanations + links above for why just having separate anthro+feral tags would be a bit infeasible in this case [tl;dr the tags are too huge])

-

So with that in mind,
