If we lived in an anthropomorphic world, what animal would you realistically be? This world is exactly the same as our own except all humans are furries. Keep in mind your geographical location, race, personality, body type, etc. For example, if you live in Alaska you wouldn't be an iguana, if you're white you wouldn't be a tiger, and if you're 6'5 you wouldn't be a mouse.
Bonus round: compare it to your fursona.
An opossum or raccoon is probable, or given my personal hatred for heat despite living in one of the hottest states in the humidest region of said state, a migratory bird.
My friends tell me I wear too much cologne and I live near a marshy woodland area so probably a skunk or a weasel, I like this thread, never thought about making a fursona based on these characteristics since people will choose animals that are native to Madagascar or the like and not think to just look near their home.
An american woodcock. They're my family's namesake and I enjoy their songs every time spring comes around. Physically, I'm not overly tall, and my legs aren't the strongest, and I have good visual perception. Although, I don't compare to their physical characteristics 100% (I'm not plump like they are, so I'd be a fairly light bird for their species), but I'd think they're a realistic choice. I really like their muted, earthy plumage as well. I sadly don't have a fursona to compare it to.
I couldn't find an anthropomorphic one, so here's some nice images of these birds.
People who don't suspect my background called me fox for being a backstabbing traitor while acting innocent, so its obvious.
Someone should deliver an anthro woodcock now. Hehe. Wood. Cock.
I mean, there'd be no need to change, cashmere is adaptive to very cold and very hot.
Do you live around East Asia/Austraillia? Goats are a cool choice though. I've always liked their horizontal pupils.
>Hehe. Wood. Cock
It's agonizingly unfunny.
It'd be cool if someone drew an anthro one though. I'll post it in the request thread.
Yeah imagine it was fucking unfunny on purpose, dumbass.
Personality wise, probably an opossum. I like to keep to myself a lot and don't like confrontation, and I wouldn't hit/bite anyone unless I really needed to. Otherwise, probably a bird because being able to fly would be cool as shit.
Either bear, because I'm already a huge hairy fatass, or a fox to play against type.
A pigeon or seagull because I'm poor, retarded and live in an urban area.
Arctic Fox or Arctic Wolf
t Guy who goes biking with a tee shirt on when it’s 35 degrees Fernhite.
Nah, I'm stateside. That thick coat would be nice in the winter, living around the lakes, they keep getting stranger every year.
So how does the geography aspect work exactly, by where you live right now, or where you're born? In a parallel work to this one, it wouldn't be unreasonable to have a very short-sighted iguana to move to Alaska for work and then have to carry a space heater everywhere.
I thought pigeons were a fairly smart species?
Ah, it probably be very nice to have that kind of coat then. Hell, if I had a coat like that, I might actually consider ice fishing.
I'd just base it on where you live now, or else it'll just get too complicated.
as far as birds go pigeons are very stupid. crows, ravens and parrots etc. are the smarty pants birds
Realistically, I'd probably be an American junkyard mutt — one of those dogs that's so mixed up with imported species from all over the world, that you can't even tell what it's been made from. But it's smart, loyal, affectionate, and practically indestructible compared to those prissy little purebreds, even if it's nothing special to look at.
But I did specifically design my fursona to be comparable to myself. Both raccoons and grey foxes are endemic to the area I live, and even partially share the same kind of habitat. Both can climb trees, while I am an adept climber; and both will eat pretty much anything, same as I. Gray foxes are sly and lightfooted, but built stockier (ie: less feminine) than red foxes. Raccoons are clever, good at solving puzzles, have dexterous hands, and (at least mythologically) steal all sorts of things, all traits which describe me.
Of course, "realistically" there's no such things as hybrid coonfoxes, but I hardly care.
In that case, maybe a bobcat. I'm pretty average physically, am perfectly at home in snow or cold weather, and prefer a solitary lifestyle. The ear tufts are aesthetically pleasing too.
I'd probably be a Pygmy Shrew, my entire family is fairly short and most wear glasses due to poor eyesight including myself. I honestly don't know much about em
Comparing it to my actual fursona, an armadillo, they too have bad eyesight and are a fairly small species. Both end up being roadkill on a regular basis and eat mostly insects. Close enough I suppose
That first one has a face EXACTLY like a housecat I once knew.
I'm pretty restricted by geography, so really the only thing that fits is a Thylacine. Most other animals that are slimly built like me seem to thrive in warm environments which I can't stand, whereas Tasmanian tigers apparently didn't mind the cold.
I'm pretty lazy and while that might be better captured by a reptile, but they also enjoy the sun too much and barely eat so I can't reconcile my rampant scaley lust with OP's parameters. Interestingly thylacines were "noted as having a stiff and somewhat awkward gait, making it unable to run at high speed", which is oddly fitting since I've never been able run fast in my entire life.
I'd really prefer to be human. Otherwise, though, not sure.
I'd like to be a kobold. More realistically, I might end up a bird of some kind. A griffonvulture's my fursona, but if we're going regional stuff, that's probably not likely.
Maybe a crow. I like crows.
I have an idea, but it is my secret!
This bird. It is the national bird of my shithole, plus they are pretty.
It's cold as hell here with snow everywhere most of the time, they take no shit, and are surprisingly aggressive.
>if you're white you wouldn't be a tiger
why? because you've seen a lot of ching chong iconography involving tigers?
you are a stupid faggot
Hey don't call him a faggot, that's racist
It's almost like tigers exclusively live in Asian countries.
Can't I just remain a human and screw anthro women
Wow, I wish my anus had an official national bird.
Oh wait, it does. The Cock.
Can I be like this guy except screw anthro guys.
I am even okay with experiencing some specieism from the anthros, if only to make life a bit interesting.
I think I be some sort of mustelid, probably an American marten. I've always sort of identified with them because they're small, but not delicate. I live on the east coast though, so based on my geographical location I'd be a mink or river otter. My current fursona is a deer. I think it fits me too because I'm a dumb environmentalist faggot.
I've been debating whether I should make a mustelid or deer fursuit. I can't decide, I'm leaning toward mustelid right now. There's not a lot of resources for making hoof hands or deer heads.
I'm kinda'v an outdoors athletic person, so I guess a Ocelot would suit me in terms of location (and the fact that I don't go too far away from my area)
Probably a lynx: secretive, quiet and solitary.
As a somewhat overweight bearded man from eastern europe i'd probably fit a brown bear the best...
Guess I'd end up being like a Mule or a Zebroid or something. Mixed race and all that.
It gets a little hard to determine what I'd be based on those specifications without just being some random mutt or turning into a special snowflake hybrid mess.
Ah yes, because how could anyone forget the famous West European Tigers, or the tigers roaming the Australian outback?
Oh wait. those don't exist.
knowing my luck I'd be some bullshit like a macaque
i'd just end up as a fucking rat or spider or some shit
One of these things is not like the others, etc.
Well, since I'm white, fat as fuck, full of acne, and a 5"9 manlet, I'd say a purple 6"5' tiger, the traditional animal of my peoples.
Such an exotic species of ape
Yea, fuck those chinamen, lmao. Anyways remember that whole creation myth about the how Rome was founded by two brothers raised by an italian Tiger or how there were were-Tigers in european mythology or a number of other creation myths and deities that were Tiger-related?
inb4: WE WUZ SAMURAIZ N SHEYUT
There were tigers in eastern europe and there are currently tigers in eastern russia (a WHITE COUNTRY), if you have a problem with getting owned by me and my facts you can get on your knees and suck my dick, end of discussion, period, mic drop.
Siberia hardly counts - it's mostly a no-man's land - and if you're gonna count the tiny fucking sliver of Turkey that they used to live in (which most would not consider to be a "white" country, fyi), then we may as well allow for everyone being dinosaurs too.
And if we're doing that, then allow me to change my answer to pic related
How much money are you going to spend on having people come over and jerk you off
I didn't read your post because I don't care what you say, you're wrong.
I don't know how that kass got there.
I sorta did base my fursona on myself, so I’d likely stay an American badger.
>Eastern Russia is a white country
I came here to laugh at you.
if not that there is, well, you know
THE ENTIRETY OF GEORGIA
>keep in mind your geographical location, race, personality, body type, etc
I can understand personality and body type, but why location and race? Humans aren't related to other animals at all, so why would race be a factor? And although you might share a region with an animal, you might have different geographical origin points. Considering what animal you're most similar to, I think only mental traits or personality matter.
They're just factors to keep in mind, you don't have to follow all of them of course. The reason I mentioned race and location is because I wanted people to think about the fauna in their area (or the area they came from) as opposed to animals across the globe.
I know that the fandom is about escapism and you can be a 9 foot shark with two glowing cocks, but I think it's nice to imagine what we all would actually be if we were anthros.
I can't think of any east coast (USA) animals that would fit an alcoholic lunatic.
Hmm, yes I do suppose so. Have a gander at these traditional Muscovites of Nordic/Slavic descent.
Aight, I'mma make the Eurasian wolf the official spirit animal of Africans everywhere.
We wuz wolves manngggg
Turks are mongols btw :^)
>tigers roaming the Australian outback?
They are roaming the Australian inner city, inflating the property markets
Back to >>>/aus/
>end of discussion, period, mic dro
Maybe a ferret or some similar critter, like a possum.
what are you, gay?
Pigeons are stupid rats on wings. You can make the fuckers faint by drawing circles around them with a laser pointer.
Mooses, if you're in new england.
But I don't want to be a furry. I'm perfectly happy with a human body, I'd just like to fugg some furries.
This, I just want to not be fat, ugly and have a bigger dick
Probably a maned wolf or a giant otter, they're nicknamed 'water jaguar' and are generally less cuddly than what people usually think otters look like, which is pretty cool
Though to be fair a paca would probably be closer to my mousey nature
You would like woodcock faggot
I'd probably be some black cat who fucks anything that moves but is still playful and easygoing. State animal is a bear but I'd rather not be barabait.
My fursona's a red panda but good luck with that in California where thick fur and no bamboo are huge drawbacks.
No I'm more towards the middle of the coast, though that would be a good choice.
Either a llama or a coqui
There's plenty of cold places in California, especially up North and to the East (the parts that aren't desert anyway). Plus they eat other than bamboo.
I bet you dollars to donuts there's at least one in the San Francisco Zoo.
Probably some flavor of a mustelid like a ferret, weasel or a marten. They're pretty cool little guys.
>Southwestern Speckled Rattlesnake
>Widely distributed throughout the Colorado and Mojave deserts
>An alert, nervous species. VENOMOUS; don't handle or use extreme caution.
>This snake is diurnal early in the season when temperatures are mild, and becomes progressively more nocturnal as daytime temperatures increase.
I don't have a fursona, so there's nothing to compare it to.
Doing my part
I guess I would be a crow
>live in cities and sometimes in the countryside
>thin as hell
>sassy, cunning yet reckless and cheeky at moments
>happy go lucky
This wraps it up
I live in the chaparral basically, it rarely goes below 70s in the daytime
There probably is but again they have to ship in its food
As a cat there's less of a hassle in staying alive here, as long as you don't get hit by a car and get fed you'll be alright
And you smell as shitty as one, right?
No, you'd be a pigeon and commit suicide by flying into a window once you find out.
I'm sure anon can still smell nice even as a mustelid.
When I used to work outside with garbage all day, probably.
>Has no aim in life beyond eating and reproducing
>Implying most humans aren't the same
If we're assuming to take personality archetypes that people derive from animals then I'd probably be some sort of mollusc (like an octopus) or a leech.
I would be good friends with insectoids. I think we would have the same likes and dislikes. I also feel they would have the best conversations. If I was a mollusc, I would shapeshift into species I was talking to. Not as a means of insult, but as a welcoming gesture. I would eat every crustacean in the buffet.
Some kind of corvid maybe, even though I don't like birds too much. People SAY they're smart for some reason but they're just loud, obnoxious trolls. Fits me pretty well.
That's Half-a-Trash-Panda to you, mister!
Most things that are loud and obnoxious are also quite intelligent.
Like, you know, humans.
A Red Fox. I live up where there's snow. I'm a meat eater, I'm smart, I get playful or I'll rest in my house.
And you're a slut. Because for some stupid ass reason, the fandom declared red foxes as sluts.
Thats how the fandom handles the best fucking animal on the planet.
Those are blue foxes anon
I've been told that I would be a Doberman Pincher because I'm chill at first but have a fucking horrible temper.
What fucking options are for canada then? Too lanky to be a bear, too short to be a moose, too timid to be a wolf. Guess I'd be a raccoon
I'd probably be either a beaver or some type of bird. I'm leaning more towards beaver because I also only come out to do stuff in the summer months and then hibernate inside for the long Canadian winters.
I thought yellow ones were the turbowhores.
hi vSauce, Michael here. Here's an interesting question, what color fox is considered the most slutty?
actually I made a poll, cause I'm really interested :D
I picked up a lot of cat mannerisms from growing up with their little pride as a kid so nya
KEK & LEL
Who drew that?
One of these little guys.
Crocodile because they're immortal and pretty much the most metal bastards on land and under water.
Some more small bastards I forgot to include with
Decent choice. I could go alligator, myself. Local to my area, and always pleasant looking little guys.
Or maybe a slug. I really like gastropods
I want to be a plague rat so I can spread disease and kill everything.
Considering physique, color scheme and life status it could be any kind of brown-ish small canine, cat or other trash eater. Narrowing it down further by location I would say either fox, marten or sewer rat.
I'd probably be a rat. They're not exactly uncommon where I live and I'm a bit of a recluse. I'm also slightly hygiene-impaired. I don't have a fursona.
an epic grayfox cause i'm not a stupid slut red fox. also they're murican
also i'm going to do a fuck/marry/befriend out of the OP image
Platinum Cross Fox
I've had a bunch of very rough ideas over the years along the lines of being an avian or a scalie, but in the commission I'm getting that I'm outlining a fursona for myself with now I've got a
leafeon vaguely-fox-like nature spirit character in mind instead, so go figure.
You can't marry multiple people...!
ok if i had to choose one it'd be the platinum cross fox!
have spent an unreasonable amount of time thinking about this question without finding a good answer.
closer to reality:
Good thing they aren't people
fuck now i'm lonely and want a platinum cross fox bf :((((
Both literally and figuratively very bad taste. Besides, they're just off-colored red foxes.
YouTube embed. Click thumbnail to play.
Snowfoxes are adorable.
crows best tbh
hey that's nofna! I think
Wait, you a Jersey fag?
Ah shit, Bayonne fag here
Realistcally? Probably an elk. There's a lot of 'em out here in the Pacific Northwest. I'm not a small guy, but not an overly huge guy, so deer and moose are out. I'm kinda doofy lookin', even-tempered, and I like the outdoors, which helps add to it. Only part that doesn't fit is the fact that I'm reclusive as all hell.
Bonus round: I'm a basic bitch with a plain gray dog for a sona
All good choices, 10/10
Probably a boar or something.
>Australian, but a colony lad not a native
>Not much to look at
>Kind of an asshole
>Pretty tall and wide framed
Not about to impress anyone. The 'sona is just a barnowl so that's like a lateral shift.
I like to think I'd be a barn owl of all things. I've always been a distant, quite, and calculating individual. I keel myself clean and in decent shape, for the most part. On top of that, I have considerable coordination, reflexes, and speed to match. Also, all narcissism aside, I'm considerably intelligent, or at the least wise.
Anything that is mildly retarded, does things in an awkward and unpractical manner without noticing, gets annoyed/angry easily and is reclusive.
tfw you're a human supremacist but also a furry degenerate
I'm not falling for your bullshit, Huff/pol/. I chose my fursona because it matches my personality, not because I'm a special snowflake which holds itself to an ideal it can not match. If I were in a real world woth real anthropomorphs, I would in all likelihood be my fursona, and I say that because I acknowledge both the strengths and the weaknesses of the animal I chose. How about you?
Could someone japanese be a raccoon? (not a raccoon dog)
They're found all over japan even though they're not native.
I mean, if they were from the Philippines, China, Korea, or Okinawa then maybe they could be considered foreign invaders spreading everywhere.
