Commonly, "animals" means "all animals, except humans". So is there a single word for "animals, including humans"?
Particularly, if you had a list of two choices, animal or human, what would you write as the heading?
Context: I'm building an input form for game designers to fill out about things you can encounter in a fantasy world. And one property of an encounter is whether it's an encounter with humans, animals, and possibly more categories to be determined later (e.g. spirits, monsters, undead?).
