The one in my avatar. I consider myself a lone wolf.
A horse. Like the one in that book "Animal Farm". Sad, but true. "I will work harder!".
I consider myself a bear.
I am able to choose whether I eat meat or the berries. I can be alone for years at a time and be perfectly content. I have the capacity to be a wonderful parent, while not subjecting my danger to consideration.
I protect with great strength what is mine, and I do not run away no matter how much smaller I may be than my opponent.
I may be on the slower side, but when I catch you--and I will with my sense of smell--you will not leave unchanged.
hmm lemme think who's the slowest laziest one.... snail maybe , yeah that'll suit me.
A cat because I am very independent and also if I have a ball of yarn I can keep myself entertained for hours.
bear or an owl
A red fox. Sly, clever, quick, sometimes social, generally independent, and nocturnal. Always thought they were gorgeous creatures, too :)
