What Mammal Are You?

Mostly As
You understand the bear necessities and you enjoy life. No one ever has to twist your arm to go get a snack! Don’t let your curiosity get you in trouble!

Mostly Bs
Darling deer, you are graceful and charismatic. Everyone loves you and you love the attention. Make sure you don’t get caught in the headlights, though!

Mostly Cs
Alright, we get it, you’re a cool cougar. People look up to you, but there’s also an element of intimidation. It doesn’t hurt to come down from your throne sometimes.

Mostly Ds
It’s all about friends and family for you, marmot. You know what you like and who you like and your dedication shows. Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone!

Next time you are in the park and you see your soul animal, you can give them an understanding nod because you both just get it.
