biped (s) (noun), bipeds (pl)
Any animal that has two feet: It is easy to realize that, unless a bird has lost one of its feet, they are bipeds just like humans.

Even people are classified as bipeds; of course, dogs, cats, and all of the other animals that have four feet are not bipeds, but quadrupeds.

Many primate and even bear species will adopt a bipedal gait in order to reach food or so they can explore their environment; while humans, gibbons, and large birds walk by raising one foot at a time.

Two-footed animals.
