Lots of folks like the cute ones: dogs, dolphins, meerkats. That's cool, but I'd choose Falco amurensis. As attractive as some of the other choices are, thousands of kms of migratory flight combined with high-speed, raptorous, attack dives trump them for me.

Well, truth be told, I would be peregrine falcon. We've got them around here, and they are a joy to watch.

BUT...I'm probably more like this animal:

If I wanted to be adored, I'd be a lemur (duh).

If I wanted to be feared, I'd be a Komodo Dragon -- probably one of the few things on earth with nearly no enemies (besides humans, and even there, it's a crapshoot).

I don't have a deep personal affinity to a particular animal (besides cats, not enough to be one, though), but I've been told at different times that I look like a bear or an owl. So, I guess that means I'm a... bowel? Works for me.

I guess since I'd love to fly and I love the water, I guess I'd be some kind of water bird: duck, goose, swan, crane, etc.

Another option would be a marine animal, something like a dolphin/porpoise.


A land animal? Hmmmmmmmmmmm.....a dog. 'Cause they have it made!!!

You could be an Owlbear:



Me? Is xenomorph an animal? :

@ Dave: Thanks. That's really gross.


As for me, I guess I could make a good koala.

Why, I even have the hairy ears for starters.

Some sort of water-fowl. They can walk on land, fly, and swim.

I just want to be a dog. (I'd want a good family to go to of course)

Free range dog.
Something with a cool name like Shep or Chief
I'd be allowed to bite the mailman (he drives way too fast back home)
Medium sized working dog... none of those sit on your lap 14 cups of java a day toy breeds... they're nervous little buggers.
Old enough to be wise to the ways of man and young enough to provide all the stud services the neighbourhood breed fanciers would want.
My boy would be Timmy and he'd stay out of the gosh durned well or he could find his own durned way out.
My little girl would be Karolyn of course and she'd have me sniff the crotches of all potential suitors... and I'd yawn and show them what big TEETH I have.
Get off my damn lawn or I'll piss on your whitewalls.


There is something lovely about being a dog.

No - I think he's a bowel. That works.

After all these years I am pretty sure I would not be a bear. Had a lot of time to think about it.

Any animal you pick would be really boring unless you were not you anymore. If you weren't you then what is the point?

Any animal where you have one male and a herd of females. I'm not picky beyond that.

I'd dig being an albatros. Gliding for thousands of miles would be awesome.

I'd say they would count as animals, one that I'm super glad is fictional though.

When I was at school we had a very cool biology teacher. As an exercise, he had us go through all the creature's traits (what could be gathered from the movies and books) in class, and we had to figure out were it would be in an ecosystem.
