About This Quiz

The world of humans is a pretty complicated one.  There are so many things that occupy our time that animals will never have to worry about.  You need to decide what you're going to eat for breakfast, what you're going to watch on Netflix, how you're going to pay for your phone bill and about a hundred other things from one day to the next. It gets overwhelming if you try to consider it all sometimes.  Animals really do seem to have it easier in a lot of ways.  The stresses of day to day life are boiled down to just living as predator or prey.

Think of how life works for so much of nature.  You either need to find something to eat, or you need to get away from something wanting to eat you.  And make no mistake, that's super stressful, too.  Probably more stressful than deciding cereal choices.  But at least it's simple and up front and takes a lot of the guesswork out of life.   In that way, nature is kind of enviable.  Have you ever wondered where you'd fit into that predator/prey dynamic in the animal kingdom?  There's one way to find out.  Unleash your inner beast and take the quiz!
