About This Quiz

Our spirit animals represent us in the best of ways. They can match our fierce sides, our moments of sadness, and our moods like happiness. When you are happy, there's a spirit animal out there somewhere feeling happy right along with you. But which one is it? 

We're sure you've heard phrases like "as hungry as a bear" or " as happy as a clam," but have you ever stopped to wonder why they exist? As humans, we like to relate our animal instincts to stay close to our true natures. Once we find out what you are like when you are happy, which animals make you smile the most, and what you're like when you're feeling content, your spirit animal will be clear to us. 

Whether you are the type that jumps for joy or quietly beams with pride, you certainly have traits in common with an equally happy spirit animal. When you are happy, do you feel like swinging from the trees or having a few fermented crab apples to celebrate? Tell us what you are like when you have a smile on your face, and we'll figure out the animal that is somewhere out there laughing right with you!
