I will recommend a dragon. Yes! An ancient dragon of the last of their kind. Because I know they are extinct and powerful and also would be difficult to come by.
That's a unique choice. Dragons awe people then and even up to the present times. It's easy to see the reason why.

I would most likely choose a she-wolf, as they are fiercely protective and have the chops to back it up!
Power isn't bad indeed if used by the right person the right way, at the right time, and for the right purpose.
Indeed, it has to be tempered with wisdom and patience!

I agree. Yours are the right words indeed.

Wolf. I love wolfs in general. Not like I've ever seen one but they feel kind of special to me and if it was possible that I could own one, I definitely will.

I'm going to go with a lion -- it's fast, strong, brave, and smart.

The subject of spirit animals is a difficult one. I recently read an article about Rick Riordan. In one of his books, one of his characters said that Tinkerbell was her spirit animal. It was mean lightly, but he received a backlash from communities who believe in spirit animals, and he eventually chose to change that line in the book for future printings. I thought that was very interesting!

Anyway, I think this book treats the topic with respect and reverence. All that being said, my spirit animal would definitely be a cat--a hunter, a small quiet companion, and sometimes a total goofball!

I feel like my Spirit Animal would be a fox. I have red hair and it seems fitting. Alternative option maybe something that could fly although I cant imagine really what kind of bird. Maybe an owl, that does seem appealing.
