About This Quiz

Spirit animals are known as abstract guardians who are assigned to a person based on their individualistic needs. For example, you may be going through a tough breakup right now, which might call for a spirit animal who is gentle, warm and caring. Or maybe you feel lost in which career path to take. In that case, a spirit animal who represents courage, independence and bravery would be ideal for you. 

There's a wide variety of spirit animals in this world which ranges from owls and bears to wolves and black panthers. Some spirit animals are also quite unconventional, such as frogs, pandas, peacocks, butterflies and even hummingbirds. Your spirit animal might also change depending on what life stage you're in. For instance, you might require a spirit animal like a wolf in your early 20's. Later in life, you might need the guidance and calming effects of a deer.
