I would either be a wolf, or a cat :)

A dolphin. That way I can be in the ocean that I love.

Fruit bat! Flying Fox!
Flying around and eating fruit sounds pretty decent.

A blue whale, so I could know what they sing and talk and think about, and so I could swim all day with their incredible strength.

The Lion.

“A lioness may mate with more than one male when she is in heat; during a mating bout, which could last several days, the couple copulates twenty to forty times a day and are likely to forgo eating.”

That annoying monkey from Night at the Museum.

An eagle.

I suppose a mosquito, I think many people would say it matches up with my personality of who I was.

An eagle, wild horse, otter, dolphin or a chameleon.

I once heard pigs orgasm for up to half an hour at a time and have corkscrew shaped penises. On the other hand being a whale might be pretty epic. I’d probably die if I could suddenly fly so birds are probably off the table. Cheetah would be crazy and I bet meat tastes pretty good to them… If I was any sort of ape I would wreak havoc and give people a good story for the next Planet of the Apes movie.

Milo here; i know one thing; I sure wouldn’t choose to be Gail. She is boring, subservient, inflexible and a very bad dresser. Plus, she needs more than one toilet and whines too much.

I choose to be me, of course. See me

@gailcalled I’ve always thought Cats and Owls were the coolest animals but It doesn’t seem very comfortable to be either one of them. It’s either eating catfood or whole mice.

@Zyx: MIlo here; I had some people tuna juice today after Gail (who seems to have a truly small cerebral cortex) shut me accidentally in the cold garage for two hours. And mouse en brochette or mouse fricassee is delicious (even though I have to brush my teeth after eating, to avoid bad breath.)

My dog – nothing to do all day but eat, poop, be pet and sleep.

TheIntern55's avatar

^That sounds nice…..except I would be terrified of a bunch of people petting me.

I am an animal every day.

I would like to be the “puppy in the Whitehouse” the Pres. referred to on election day, I would spend my day sniffing, snooping and scooping and then I would LEAK to the press.

A Honey badger. I’m almost halfway there too; I don’t give a shit!

My brother.

ddude1116's avatar

I’d want to be a fox.

cookieman's avatar

A Basset Hound

It’s not much of a stretch really.

Sunny2's avatar

A house cat. I need the sleep.

beccagolling's avatar

A wolf….or a…..cow! =S

King_Pariah's avatar

…Now with a little thought, a sloth bear, actually fits my personality well. Seemingly calm cool lazy, but Someone up there help you if you piss me off (that is if you can). Also sucking on natures jolly ranchers doesn’t sound too bad (human body parts :D).

Coloma's avatar

Well, I just came in from being a cat in the moonlight, scampering around after a real mouse. lol

It’s true, my two cats were having a little moonlit mountain mouse hunting expedition and were volleying around a baby deer mouse in the road. I was dancing around trying to distract them so the mouse could make a run for it, and, it kept running right at me because I was a nice dark shadow. haha

downtide's avatar

A seagull, because they can fly a long way pretty fast. I wonder if I could reach somewhere warm before the day was up?

Ayesha's avatar

Bald Eagle.

linguaphile's avatar

A badger. I’d love to go back to bed this morning!

janbb's avatar

A human

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

A bird of prey of some type. I’d love to be able to fly. And just to know I could slash down and smoke something would be cool. Maybe a falcon.

Symbeline's avatar

An owl. Fly around all night, twist my head all the way back and creep people out, and swallow rodents whole.
Actually most of that I do anyways…but flying around would be cool.

MilkyWay's avatar

Interesting answers guys… XD
@gailcalled : Milo : You are really cute :)
