Kemonomimi 獣耳

In Japanese, kemonomimi 獣耳 means "beast ears," or "ears," mimi 耳, of a "beast," kemono. In anime, kemonomimi ケモノ耳 generally refers to any character that has animal ears. When it's "cat ears," it's normally called nekomimi 猫耳 instead.

Example of kemonomimi ケモノ耳 found in characters from the anime Kemono Friends

The term kemono ケモノ is used for anime characters featuring fur and other animal parts besides only the ears. Because kemono is sometimes abbreviated to just kemo ケモ, the term kemomimi ケモ耳 is synonymous with kemonomimi.
