Take our What Animal Am I personality quiz to see which animal you're most like. It's part of human nature to identify with animals. Whether you're brave as a lion, strong as an ox, or wise as an owl, people have always associated certain character traits with creatures of the wild. Sports teams frequently adopt animals as their mascots, and dogs and cats are often considered as much a part of the family as all the humans in the house.

Wild or domesticated, almost everyone is fascinated by animals. Across the globe, zoos, aquariums, parks and preserves have been created, just so humans can observe wildlife. There are at least 1.2 million known animals on the planet, but many scientists speculate that there may be a lot more that haven't yet been discovered.

Fun Facts

According to the Guinness World Records, the first known zoo was in Egypt in 3500 B.C. More than 100 animals were kept there, including elephants, baboons and hippos. Today there are more than 1,500 accredited zoos across the globe. In the United States alone, there are more than 300 zoos, and the San Diego Zoo and Wild Animal Park is considered to be the largest zoo in the world.

There are legends in every culture that revolve around humans transforming into animals. These types of people are known as shapeshifters or therianthropes. Ancient mythology is filled with stories of half-human half-animal hybrids, such as the minotaur, the centaur and the gorgon.
