    Very Informative! Just two days back when I was cooking in the evening, suddenly from nowhere a Beautiful Dragon fly appeared & started sitting on my either shoulders & on my head when I tried to shoo it off. Some how after seeing it I suddenly felt Lighter & Happier ( I was disturbed & worried & was Mentally Praying to the Angels for some Help ) I just thanked the Whole Situation!

    My husband told me last night he wanted to figure out what my spirit animal is. He sat there for a while thinking. I finally asked him, and he said it was hard to decide, but he was leaning towards a doe(deer) as i am shy and timid, but very family oriented. I was actually in the midst of taking this quiz out of curiousity and to my surprise, i am a deer! I have done 5 different quizzes and 3 out of 5 said i was a deer! Wow my husband is good!

        Woah! I’m really enjoying the tettmale/pheme of this blog. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s challenging to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appearance. I must say you have done a very good job with this. Additionally, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Chrome. Excellent Blog!

    There are presently at least 100 large black flies “sitting” on my outside deck. I did not find the fly on this list. This occurrence is preceded by an auspicious dream; I was given a baby to introduce to the family. The new baby was a beautiful, sleeping female human with “peach-fuzz” of a white tiger. Very curious indeed. Thank you in advance for sharing of understanding!

    I was wondering if there were any animals that were kind of like an ambassador for the animal kingdom, or represents them all?

    I’m sorry I don’t think most will find their spirit animal in a quiz. The whole point is A Deep connection with that animal and I’m sorry with so many people you can’t list them all in a quiz. Just felt like adding my two cents since I found my spirit animal when it came to me in the Desert of afganistan during a busy time in the war.
