About This Quiz

As a human, you might think you sit atop of the apex predator list. However, a hungry polar bear might disagree. As you prowl your way through the world, there's an apex predator that acts as your totem animal. It guides you, protects you, and makes sure that you don't howl up any of the wrong trees. 

As we claw our way through this quiz, we will need to get to know your animal instincts, your personality, and the way you feel about animals. Every answer you give us will give us a little bit of information about the kind of apex predator you can always count on to make sure you're flying right. Whether you snap like a saltwater crocodile or you sting like an electric ray, your natural defenses are coming from somewhere, and we think it's your totem apex predator. 

Leave all the scratching and sniffing bums to us. It's better that we figure it out with questions rather than sending you on a survivalist adventure. Once you've finished telling us everything we want to know, we'll let you know if your totem animal is more like a great white or something else! Which one will it be?
