What Animal Would You Be?

I could not decide, I thought a kitten (not really an animal, just a life-stage) or a dolphin or otter (water is scary), but then today I found it:I would be a dik dik, a tiny antelope which sticks twigs into its eye glands to scent mark them and has gigantic ears and eyes and a prehensile nose. Just, um, like me.

This blog has neat pictures of how tiny a dik dik is. I am not tiny! I am megafauna!* But I would still like to be a 15 inch tall antelope.

*Well, kind of. the link is to my favorite wikipedia page; I have spent probably hundreds of hours looking at the megafauna, sketching them, being scared, looking up whether hominids coexisted with them, and so on.
