Indian stories tend to picture the Fox as the bad guy, in general. Tigers and Lions are brave - but at times they can be bad too. Bears are generally the good guys, while crows and crocodiles get negative roles to play. Monkeys somehow end up as side characters - List is endless, and reasons could be interesting. So how about your culture / any other culture whose stories you've happened to follow? Have you observed any pattern which is followed? What are the reasons for species oriented "Casting" ? Appearance / behavior / both / something else? [Disclaimer - Photo from Pixabay-public domain]
