About This Quiz

Do you know how many species of animals there are in the world? Don't feel bad if you don't know the answer because technically no one does. New species are being discovered all the time. 

We do know that there are well over 8 million species of animals out there. Think about that. 8 million! With that huge number of beasts out in the world, is it possible that there isn't one that perfectly encapsulates different aspects of your personality? There is absolutely an animal out there that represents you when you're sad, which might be a panda. There's also an animal that serves as your spirit animal when you're happy and if we had to guess, it'd be a penguin. But what are you when the rage takes over? What animal lurks beneath the surface when you start seeing red?  There's no room for pandas and penguins here: this is the real deal. 

With 8 million animals to choose from, this is going to require some help. You can't be expected to pick out your rage spirit animal on your own. Instead, you should just answer some questions for us about your anger and let us do all the work. We'll tell you what your anger spirit animal is, and you'll have a name for that rage. Take the quiz and see!
