The Elk!

The Elk!

A gentle creature of dawn, your soul will manifest as the majestic and legendary Elk. One with nature and it's peaceful serenity, your gentle kindness is a true rarity. Sure, you have your quirks, but who doesn't? Those who know you value your unabashed calmness - and quickly get jealous of your ability to keep your cool even in the most daring of situations. Just like the Elk, however - if the proverbial poop hits the fan, you will be the first to get yourself and those you love as far away as possible. You find beauty in the small things: dewdrops on blades of grass or a mesmerizing sunset. Above all else: The South is your Home.

The Red Fox!

The Red Fox!

The most vibrant of southern spirits, your internal fire burns so bright that it could only manifest as the sleek and mysteriously sexy Red Fox! Though you value your kin, your spirit is largely solitary - burning bright with fierce independence and curiosity. You have the amazing ability to adapt to any situation and tackle any social setting - blending in effortlessly or completely owning a crowd; whichever you so choose. The world is at the tip of your paws, and with ember-hot good looks like yours, there's not much you'll want for in this life or the next. Foxy!

The Black Bear!

The Black Bear!

Your soul is as warm and southern as they come, and will no doubt manifest as perhaps the greatest symbol of the Appalachian mountains: The Black Bear. Your heart is one for the record books - as you turn none away and keep the ideals of "southern hospitality" alive and well. Family is paramount; nothing takes precedence over your cubs or those who need you most. You're fuzzy, inviting, and full of nurturing wisdom. Those who love you cherish your empathy, generosity, and truly appreciate how much of a good listener you are. Anyone who leaves your comfy abode will always part by ways of "Y'all come back now, y'hear?"

The Great Horned Owl!

The Great Horned Owl!

Not one for the ...ahem... lesser stereotypes of the south, you're a refined southern belle/gentleman whose intelligence bodes great reverence for nature's creatures. Your soul will no doubt blossom into the very symbol of the wilderness' intelligence: The Great Horned Owl. Your ideas are bold and your dreams bolder, and you will never settle for mediocrity. Such a unique and sharp mind as your own rarely gets bored, as you always have something peaking your curiosity and interest. Just don't be surprised if your loved ones catch you "hooting" in your sleep from now on!

The Red-Tailed Hawk!

The Red-Tailed Hawk!

You've got a thing for adrenaline, don't you? Life, for you, is about thrilling adventures and passionate encounters. Such beauty and skill as your own can only be achieved with the spirit of the Red-Tailed Hawk! A staple of the south, these gorgeous raptors are fierce hunters and enormous yet majestic patrons of the treetops. Freedom is your vice, and your soul longs to soar through the skies long after your physical form has left these hallowed lands. Chances are you've already mastered your own destiny!

The Eastern Diamondback!

The Eastern Diamondback!

Lawd'a'mercy! You are the spiritual incarnation of fear itself, the Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake! The largest serpent in these here hills, you've got a penchant for the darker side of life and like to have absolute control over your surroundings. Ain't no one gonna bully you or yours around - and if they do hope they can heal from one of the most toxic bites on the face of the planet! We're guessing this pleases you greatly, cause if you made it all the way this quiz choosing the results you did and are upset that you're a snake... you've got bigger problems, bub!
