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.
- Main article: The Baboon
The Baboon appears in From A to Zoo. It is tormented by Cuddles and Toothy, and, as a result (though it may also have been from Sniffles's camera's flashing), goes rampant and kills Sniffles by tearing him apart, and eventually (possibly) causes the deaths of everyone still alive on the bus.

The Sea Lions
Two sea lions appear in Water You Wading For, where they bounce Cuddles back and forth to each other like a beach ball.
Some sheep can be seen in a pen in Doggone It, they end up getting killed by Lumpy's giant corn. A sheep can also be seen flying out of Lifty and Shifty's van and ends up living at Lumpy's house.

- For more information, see Canary
A canary that is seen in I Get a Trick Out of You. Lumpy kept it in his hat for his magic performance, but it ended up dying before the show. He throws the bird in the air, expecting it to fly away, but it only falls to the stage, prompting Lumpy to nervously kick it out of the way.
- Main article: The Eagle

- Main article: The Seagulls
These birds eat the guts of dead or dying Happy Tree Friends when they are at the beach/on the ocean. The Seagulls are featured in the episodes Wipe Out!, Better Off Bread, Sea What I Found, and Water Way to Go. The only time they ever actually kill someone is in Wipe Out!, in which they eat the injured and possibly dying Flaky.

- Main article: The Woodpecker
A woodpecker that is seen in Hide and Seek, in which its pecking makes Flippy flip, and it is then killed by his bowie knife. It makes another appearance in Eye Candy, causing Toothy to fall off a cliff by pecking his eye. It also makes a cameo at the beginning of Eyes Cold Lemonade.
Reptiles and Amphibians
- Main article: List of Snakes
Numerous snakes have appeared in the series, almost all of them being involved in the injury or death of a character.
An alligator first appears in Water You Wading For as one of the creatures that attack Cuddles. A pet alligator is later seen in Junk in the Trunk, being held hostage with many other animals by Lifty and Shifty. An alligator can also be seen in the jungle level of Run and Bun.
A Frog is killed by The Mole in Every Litter Bit Hurts by being impaled with a litter spike, before being collected in a plastic bag. Another frog appears in Junk in the Trunk as one of the pets stolen by Lifty and Shifty.
- Main article: The Sharks
The first sharks appear in Happy Trails Pt. 2: Jumping the Shark, swimming around the island. One of them kills Lifty and Shifty, and their fins are grayish-colored. Another shark makes an appearance in Petunia's Summer Smoochie, this one peach-colored. Sharks also appear in the TV series in the episodes Wipe Out! and Wingin' It. In these episodes, they are blue in color. They almost eat Flaky in these episodes, and, although she is injured by one in Wingin' It, she is never actually killed by one. They are voiced by Aubrey Ankrum and Kenn Navarro.
Various Marine Life
These marine animals (consisting of a sawfish, a hammerhead shark, and an electric eel) are seen in Sea What I Found, in which Russell uses them to build a sea vessel to chase after Lifty & Shifty. However, this does not work and the sea creatures viciously attack him.
The Bees make their first appearence in Sweet Ride, in which they kill Nutty when his head gets stuck in a beehive. They appear again in Take a Hike, this time showing no hostility to Nutty when he is slurping honey from a hive. In Aw, Shucks!, a beehive is knocked off its branch and some bees swarm around Toothy (though these might be wasps, as Toothy did not get an allergic reaction to their stings). One bee appears in The Carpal Tunnel of Love and stings Toothy in the eye, causing it to get infected. It comes back later and kills Lumpy when it stings his eye, causing him to crash into the back of a truck.
The Giant Squid
- Main article: The Giant Squid
The Giant Squid first appears in Doggone It. It was a pet until it attacked and killed several characters before being captured by Lumpy. It appears again in You're Kraken Me Up, causing more carnage after Russell accidentally awakens it by dropping an anchor on its head.
The Hermit Crab
This small blue crab appears in Wipe Out!. It is first seen replacing its old shell with an ice cream cone, nearly being stepped on by Lumpy in the process. At the end of the episode, it uses Flaky's severed head as its new shell.
