    Just curious. For me, I looked up this website that had animal personalities and from what I read mine matched the most with a Mountain Goat. Then I added in the dragon because it's my birth animal in the Chinese Zodiac. So my fursona became a Mountain Goat / Dragon Hybrid of sorts.

    What about you? What's your species and how'd you come up with it?

    I like insects and bugs and stuff. I chose the Robber fly. Now, I didn't really choose the "species" per se, I more did a sort of filing down to get the look I wanted, but for a reason. Insects usually have unreasonably large numbers of species under a family. Finding a specific species to match was too difficult and oddly specific, so I took the traits that interested me most from what I've seen while still retaining the Robber fly look. Some species had a lot more fuzz on them, took that. Some had longer and more narrow abdomens, took that. etc etc, you get the picture.

    There is a native American story about Fox stealing fire to give to the rest of the world (fire being symbolic of technology and society)
    It's a similar story to my favorite mythological character, Prometheus.

    So there we go.

    I like small rodents, and when I made my fursona I was into stuff like Chip n Dale, American Tale, Secret of NIMH, etc.

    I love dogs and know every breed's temperament. So to me the husky is closer to me.

    Couldn't find an animal that clicked with me, mixed together traits of animals I did like, packaged it all nice-like under the banner of an alien; I sorta relate to aliens in a way.

    Well, I always loved wolves and tigers but I loved the way wolves looked and there are actually the best thing I can draw and I draw wolves more than any animal. They just look so cool!
