If you could be any animal,

by whiskered-fish

what animal would it be, and why?

Personally, I love all animals, so my answer changes everyday. But today I’m kinda in love with leopard seals.

Quaker Parrot. I’d get to keep living in my own back yard.

Oh wow. 🙂 I wouldn’t’ve thought you could find anything like that in Texas. Do you have any bird feeders for them?

Right now, my backyard is full of seagulls. They tend to come more inland when it snows.

They eat the sunflowers that grow in my back yard. There are tons of the green little guys here.

A shark, cuz they grow new teeth.

That makes sense. Haha. At least now, ToTrees, you can get a gold tooth.

Fun fact: Did you know that great whites aren’t without predators? They do have one main predator (besides humans, of course) and that predator is themselves! Apparently, white sharks are huge cannibals. And if you’re a GW shark pup, you’re very likely to wind up on your aunt or uncle’s plate.

A cheetah because they run so fast. I’d love to have that speed to escape my problems the best coping resource

whiskered-fish 1/22/2016 - 1:22 pm

That is really cool, and probably really effective. Haha.

Another fun fact: Did you know that cheetahs used to have a gene for silver fur? Not even kidding. Apparently, cheetahs used to come in tan and silver, instead of just tan.
The silver gene was probably eradicated during a historical period of over-hunting, but it’s just cool to think of silver cheetahs running around. 🙂

That’s something through research that I never read about from cheetahs silver that’s beautiful

BUTTERFLY – a short, mostly beautiful, life.

whiskered-fish 1/22/2016 - 12:44 pm

That’s pretty cool. 🙂 You could live in a butterfly house, maybe, or just a green house, and you wouldn’t hafta worry about anything.

I figure that as an animal, I wouldn’t be depressed at all, because I’d be living a natural life with plenty to occupy me and not a lot of brain to think with.
That’s why I picked leopard seal. They may not have a very beautiful existence, but they’re apex predators and are too busy being total killing machines to bother with any kind of existential dread.

I think I’d like the adventure of a monarch butterfly. ()

Id like to be a Bird of some kind so I could fly away. Whenever the shit goes down just up and fly away. LOL.

I want to dive bomb in the ocean for fish too!!
Birds rule.

Next to Quaker Parrots, my next favorite bird is the Turkey Vulture. They are really cool, and HUGE. Plus, and this is a half full glass moment, they get rid of all the stinky carrion no one else wants to clean up. I had what I believe was a dead dog next to my fence and close to 18 or so of them were mulling around my yard inspecting the vittles. Man they are amazing creatures. By the time they were done there was nothing left, so I never did get a chance to find out what it was. There was a tuft of fur, but truthfully it could have been any animal at that point.

A crocodrile or a t-rex, only to see if they can actually brush their teeth with their small arms, lol.

I’d be Merlin so I can transform myself to any animal at any time, and not be limited to stay any animal forever 🙂

Giant Tortoise: I could move as slowly as I needed to, and could retreat into a tough thick shell whenever the outside world was too overwhelming.

Hazy Day Sunflower 1/22/2016 - 8:04 pm

OH nice, maybe one of those giant ones? Or the little California ones that people keep kidnapping for pets?

Cordless 1/22/2016 - 8:29 pm

I imagined one the Giant Galapagos variety.
Big giant thick shell.

Another possibility would be a hermit crab; they can retreat into a shell too. When they outgrow it, they just find a bigger shell.
I used to own a bunch of those for pets.

Hazy Day Sunflower 1/22/2016 - 8:34 pm

OH that is really good too. You could be one of those ocean ones, they can cruise around on the beach at low tide then head back out to sea at high tide.

I’ve sometimes thought of myself as ‘crazy like a fox’ (and some of those also have dashing stockings), but I also think the araneidae make some beautiful works of art.

OH a jewel spider, I have them in my yard. OMG they are beautiful. They live in my cactus garden. We had a giant red one this summer the kids fed ants to.

White tiger or a snow leopard.

Hazy Day Sunflower 1/23/2016 - 1:56 pm

pre or post Siegfried & Roy? 🙂

October_rain 1/23/2016 - 2:08 pm

Haha… And I forgot the why for being a white tiger or snow leopard: They’re solitary and just plain awesome.

Hazy Day Sunflower 1/23/2016 - 2:09 pm

so is Siegfried and Roy…..
