A totem animal, by definition, could be an object, animal, person or symbol. They are supposed to accompany an individual during their lifetime and help guide them with many aspects of their life. The Native Americans believed that different animals called forth different powers, and it is the same with our mythical beings. And although their beliefs tend to stick to animals that actually exist, we don't see anything wrong with adding in a dragon or two to make things more interesting. So we want to find out which mythical creature is guiding you through life and what it means for you. You might be surprised to find what creature stands behind you!
Does the dragon give you strength when you need it? Does the unicorn provide healing when you're feeling hurt? Does the mermaid warn you off certain people? Or is your totem animal something else entirely? We're here to find out just which of these creatures has your back, and the only way to do that is for you to answer the questions in this quiz. If you're anxious to know what it is, feel free to start at any time.
