If you could be any other organism for just one day, what would you choose?

Asked by Arbornaut (2571 points ) January 5th, 2011

Just out of interest, iv said organism but animals are the likely answers. So if you had a day to spend as any animal what would you choose? Eagle? Tip rat? Lion? Sea gull? Do tell!

I would be a bird and fly all over.

Most definitely a bird. More specifically, an Eagle.

A Cheetah…Cheetahs love gazelles for breakfast! ;)

@Cruiser Gazelles are better at golf XD

Cruiser's avatar

@lucillelucillelucille Perhaps, but Gazelles hit way too many shots in the woods and that could be hazardous to their health! ;)

I’ll go with the first poster. But I’d choose the eagle. Not only can you fly, but with superior vision you get to look around as well :)

The first thing I thought of when I read this question was, if it was just for a day, a plant of some sort. I am curious to know whether plants have any feelings/awareness at all. For the sake of having fun for a day I would like to be a bird of prayer, a big cat or a wolf.

Dung beetle. I mean, the shit they pull. That’s the third time i’ve aired that joke & you know what? I don’t care! :¬)

Hmmm…It’s a toss up between a bird that can fly, and, well, laugh if you will I have always had a fascination for Moles and Gophers and subterranian life. lol

Or..maybe a Mountain Lion, jump out on the trail and scare the piss out of some one, like happened to me a few years ago.

A cat, a spoiled rotten house cat, so my human can wait on me hand and foot all day, while I lick myself and nap where I want when I want… Oh what a life that would be.

@JustJessica

LOL Yeah, I have been calling my two cats, ‘professional sleepers’, whatta a great job! haha

Dolphin or bird.

@Coloma My little princess is also a pro at sleeping, I envy her lifestyle! She has us all wrapped around her little paw.

Definitely a bird; a hawk of some kind.

faye's avatar

A well loved cat, like my spoiled baby.

Supacase's avatar

Ideally, I would like to be something that thinks and feels so I can remember the experience, but I think I would take my chances with being a beautiful old tree.

Arbornaut's avatar

Hey cool answers guys, thanks. Personally iv always wanted to have a go at flying so i thought an eagle would be awesome, but id also love to be an ancient fig tree somewhere in the jungle.

I would be a snake….

Coloma's avatar

I liked to be a cat for a few minutes to experience the never ending excitement of chasing the laser pointer.

Coloma’s salivating cats, one click and they’re on.

I would start the day as a bird and fly around, then be a whale and swim around, then be a kitty and sleep off the flying and swimming in the sun, and get my belly rubbed.

DrasticDreamer's avatar

I’d wanna be a dog, with a loving owner. I mean… Can you imagine how fucking happy life would be?

“Ohmygod a tree, it’s so pretty! I think I’ll pee here! A ball! Throw it for me! This cat shit smells so awesome I’m gonna roll in it! My owner! I love it! Petmescratchmybuttnowletmeslobberonyourface!”

Such genuine happiness.
