About This Quiz

Predation is the natural interaction where a hunting animal (predator) kills and eats an organism that it hunted (prey). Predators have highly adapted senses as well as biological adaptations which help them to find, catch, kill and eat their prey. 

Over the course of evolution as animals have evolved, some have increased their ability to hunt. As such, they are placed higher on the food chain than others. Many of the predators that we know of are carnivores, like eagles, lions, crocodiles and snakes. Some of the other predators that you may not have known about include the Venus flytrap, the mosquito, the box jellyfish and the brown recluse spider.

Totem animals are spiritual beings which serve as guides to help us through life. In addition to being our protectors, they help us to understand our past and what it means for our future. It is believed that each person has a different animal which is said to represent them as a person.

Which of the many predators in the animal kingdom is your totem animal? Will it be one of the deadliest animals known to man, or will it be an animal who you think is cute and cuddly? There is only one way to find out, and that is by taking this quiz!
