Here are some of the most popular texture packs, with a picture and link to each:
Minecraft 4 Kids

The tronic texture pack is a HD pack designed to give minecraft an electronic feel similar to the Metal Gear Solid training missions. Here we see what a pig looks like in the pack, without its traditional pixelated look and a more 3D and high definition finish.
Ever wanted to transform the animals in minecraft into something totally out of this world? Well now you can with the Aleph Setei mod, which changes everything in the minecraft world into something alien, such as the chicken which as seen in the picture above transforms into a bright red insectoid!
A texture pack designed to change the look of minecraft animals more subtley is Bias’ Stubby Stack pack. this texture pack is a stubby, fluffy and poofy alternative to the original minecraft textures, with the slight difference probably best viewed for yourself.
Another texture pack designed to give the game a more cartoony look is the Craftycraft texture pack. In this pack there are more cartoon like versions of each animal, including a few different coloured wolves and a more friendly looking pig.
Jolicraft is a great looking texture pack including changes to minecraft animals including a muddy pig, red squid, different looking sheep and cuter looking cows.
