[GotAK] Animal Personifications

Recommended Posts

Animals have been used to personify particular traits for ages. Perhaps some of these are more accurate than others. I am sure you have heard terms like, quiet as a mouse or sly as a fox.

 

What animal personification do you like the most? Which do you think are accurate or inaccurate? 

 

Feel free to share with us your thoughts on animal personifications.

But I think dogs are even more curious than cats. 

 

I've never owned a cat, so I can't speak on this exactly.  But I do know dogs are very, very curious!  At even the slightest noise, my dachshund is up and investigating, usually loudly.

 

When we were little, my mom always used to say, "We're off like a herd of turtles," when we started road trips.  Haha.

I like sloths, but they are very slow.

 

I've heard busy as a bee, but busy as a beaver is possible too. I know beavers have amazing building skills.

 

Wise as an owl, is another phrase that sticks out for me.

Eat like a bird... since its used to say you don't eat much it's incorrect. Birds actuality eat a lot!

What about "dangerous as alligators," or as Brandon Sanderson says in Steelheart:

 

Quote

They looked so dangerous, like alligators. Really fast alligators wearing black. Ninja alligators
