About This Quiz

By this point in life, you are sure to have identified with a spirit animal. However, new research has shown that we also have a totem animal that looks out for our souls. Different from spirit animals, your totem animal might not be the animal your soul is most like. Instead, your totem animal watches over your world and offers the wise parts of yourself that you've learned to trust. 

As we howl and growl our way through this quiz, we will need to learn how you feel about a number of animals. We will also need to learn about your instincts, your preferences, and your personality. After we feel like we know you better than your pet, we will run the numbers, and we'll let you know if you are more like a fox, a wolf or a dog. 

While all three animals are in the canine family, foxes less than the others, each one has a different set of traits. Throughout your answers, you'll leave little clues that will allow us to pair you with the correct beast. You might feel hungry like a wolf, but your totem animal might simply be a dog with a bone. Let's look for the wisdom in your life and find out!
