How did you know your species was right for you, was it an animal you admired a lot? Aesthetics only? A mix? I'm new to this community and I wanna be sure I enter with my best foot forward!
Not that anyone specifically asked me, but the looks of the fursona is entirely cosmetic and can represent the feelings that person has inside such as bright and happy colors indicates happiness and fun. It's exciting to see what people come up with, to be honest.A Sonic binge many years ago gave me an interest in foxes that started it all. It was mostly aesthetic; the markings, the long and fluffy tail. I've also been interested in transformation for as long as I can remember, so I really liked the idea of kitsune, the magical shapeshifting foxes. But I didn't really like the idea of having a bunch of tails, so I decided on a mix between a kitsune and a non-magical fox.
But, of course, interests change. Before I was into foxes, it was dragons. For a while, I felt more in touch with my pegasus ponysona, before gravitating back to my fox.
This is interesting. I've never heard of them before until now!I had the "wrong" fursona for the longest time. And I wanted a new one, something cute - yet interesting. and nto oversaturated in the fandom. My friend went "What about a numbat" - and I googled them and went heck yeah! and I have adored my sona ever since. We went with the cherry coke colour scheme as I also struggle with colours lol. so she is just a mish mash of inspiration and I am having so so much fun with her.
They are endagered and one of the smaller marsupials. They live in fallen logs in the Australian bush - but are very "snack sized" for feral cats and prone to not escape bushfires. But they are sooooooo cute - and then they open their mouth and that giga-tounge comes out and it's both terrifying and hillarious. Numbats deserve more love!What

Marsupials in general are super underrated. One of my characters is a Marsupial Lion (Thylacoleo Carnifex, now extinct)They are endagered and one of the smaller marsupials.

Yea I’ve also noticed some people have multiple somas too!Hello there! And welcome to the community!
I lurked on the forums a good 6+ months before I joined because I had the same questions as you're asking, and I, too, wanted to put my best foot forward.
After humming and hawing, going back and forth between animals, then colors / patterns, and then the arduous journey of picking a name... what I learned is no one really cares. I don't mean that callously! Some people change their fursonas weekly, and that's perfectly fine. So while I more than completely understand where you're coming from, don't put too much pressure on yourself to be perfect. It's about the journey, right? It's fun to discover more about yourself if nothing is clicking right away. And you can always change later.
For me, I've always loved foxes, and my love of Japanese culture is reflected in my name. There's a bunch of personal, deeper meaning that also went into my process, but I'll save you the boring details. I originally really wanted to be some grand, mythical hybrid thing, with magic powers and wondrous abilities. But it didn't feel right for me; I'm not that special. So I am just a fox. Like half the population. And as I like to say, maybe one day I'll ascend and become a kitsune.
I'd really recommend on meditating on what you're after. Maybe you resonate with an animal that is similar to your personality. Or maybe you're more drawn to an animal that has qualities you wish you had. Or mix and match. And when something sounds / feels like you're on the right track, try it out for a bit and see if you like it. Seriously, the journey is one of the best parts.
Feel free to message me if you'd like help talking through ideas or anything! Good luck, and I look forward to seeing who you become!
