About This Quiz

Nature is full of big, terrifying predators that we all know to avoid.  If you see a lion on the lawn, you're going to want to stay inside for the day. If there's a grizzly bear out and about, you don't want to mess with it at all.  And if a great white shark shows up at the beach then you never, ever go swimming again.  But what must life be like for them? What's the world like for an apex predator that everyone's afraid of?  That's got to be a trip, right?  But we'll do you one better.  What if you were a predator, but not one of the big, famous, terrifying kinds that everyone knows about?  What if you were a more elusive and rare predator?  What would your life be like then?

There's a pretty good chance you're never going to wake up as a bobcat in this lifetime, so the next best thing when it comes to finding out what sort of elusive predator you most align with is taking this quiz.  Answer us a few questions about yourself and we'll tell you precisely which elusive but still extremely respectable predator you were born to be.  Don't believe it?  Take the quiz!
