A taur, also known as a quad, is a furspeech word for the mainstream term centaur (Ancient Greek Κένταυροι – "Kéntauroi"), which refers to any creature with an anthro/furry humanoid upper body with a non-anthropomorphic animal body, in the same style as the centaur's human and horse body structure.

Taurs in furry
