Comparing Pets to Animals

(This was a post request from Violet86271 - sorry it took so long, violet)

Warning: This is one of those posts where I tried way too hard to be funny

For whatever reason, the pets in AJ are in a completely different art style than the playable animals. It's probbaly better that way now that I think of it. If the pets were in the same style as the animals it would look like this

And that would just be squiddin' weird !
Not that it's not weird that pets of the same species as the animals look completely different...
It's like if you were born with the wrong art style you're forced to be tiny and destined to a pet for a "normal" animal. It's kinda sad if you think about it. I'm looking into this way too deeply. It's a game

That intro had nothing to do with the post itself. This post is about comparing the normal animals to pets, not whatever the cheesecrocs I was talking about. Let's do that now

I used the default animal looks and tried to make pets that look the most like them

Animal version:

Pet version:

The playable ones have longer and pointier ears as well as that weird cut thing in one of their ears. The pets have a more "gumdroppy" shaped head. The pets have little claws unlike the playable ones. No wonder no one uses bunnies in clan wars. The playable ones have cute little stub tails but the pets have a floating cotton ball for a tail. If I was a bunny I'd definitely want a floating tail instead of a cottonstub
(I wonder if pet bunnies use the same logic as this guy's hat)

Animal version:

Pet version:

The biggest problem I have with the animal version of eagles is their beaks are so stinkin' huge! I couldn't find a single picture of a real eagle on the googles where their beak takes up at least 40% of its head. The other problem I have with AJ eagles is no clothing items look good on them their beak and feet colors. Real eagles have yellow beaks and feet (at least according to the googles), not faded orangey peach beaks. The pet version sort of fixes those problems... but at a cost. Their heads are oversized and they look incredibly stubby. They are pretty cute though. Their eyes don't look as "dead" as the animal versions, so that's something. It's either have the correct beak/feet colors and beak size or looking realistic but having a humongous beak. I'm not sure which one I'd choose. Luckily I will never have to decide

Animal version:

Pet version:
It's pretty obvious that pets are a lot smaller than the playable animals. However, the playable owls are almost the same size as the pets!

Pet owls are pretty similar to playable owls. The main differences are the beak/feet colors and head shape. Like the eagles, the beaks and feet are colored wrong wrong (if you're comparing them to the real life versions, that is)
The playable ones have orange beaks/feet and the pets have almost the same faded orange color as eagles so. I also looked up owl pictures on Google and I was only able to find one or two pictures of them with orange on them. Most of their beaks are tan, gray, or black. I guess those 3 colors equal orange in AJHQ logic. Playable owls and playable eagles should swap beak colors
Anyway, the playable owls have a V shape on their heads while the pets have almost completely rounded heads. Both of those "head styles" can be found on real owls


  1. Fun Facts That No One Cares About:

    When I was making the default eagle for this post, it glitched and gave me an eagle with the colors of a default owl. It also changed my eagle's beak and feet color to owl orange! You normally can't change Color 3

    Here is a picture of it

    And the regular eagle beak color to compare:

    Maybe it's just because I'm a nerd but I found that to be pretty cool
    I also took a picture of the circle animal picture with orangebeakeagle

  2. That glitch happened with Pandybewwr's penguin feet

  3. hey guys i think i did it

    1. Spiral lamps are rare now? I think that post of yours really worked. If people now think they are rare.

    2. I think it was more from me begging for them in aldan and overtrading for them

    3. can you overtrade for mine
      pls melly:(

    4. if it's yellow white or brown then yes

    5. : (
      maybe if it's blue purple or pink (not the black/pink combo)

    6. no i have the one you don't want :(
      oh well it didn't hurt to ask

  4. The whole pet thing is kind of creepy now that you mention it.. i mean think about it,its like a human owning a pet human.. Plus sometimes pets have a little animal following them around (kangaroos have praying mantis, polar bears have penguins and bunnies have chickens), so its like a human owning a human who owns a human...

  5. TIMMY!!!!!!!!! Old 2000's cartons, go!

  6. your now taking post requests? pls make post about why jackyboy is a scrubie scrubzster
