I will recommend a dragon. Yes! An ancient dragon of the last of their kind. Because I know they are extinct and powerful and also would be difficult to come by.
That's a unique choice. Dragons awe people then and even up to the present times. It's easy to see the reason why.

I would most likely choose a she-wolf, as they are fiercely protective and have the chops to back it up!

I agree. Yours are the right words indeed.

Wolf. I love wolfs in general. Not like I've ever seen one but they feel kind of special to me and if it was possible that I could own one, I definitely will.

I'm going to go with a lion -- it's fast, strong, brave, and smart.

The subject of spirit animals is a difficult one. I recently read an article about Rick Riordan. In one of his books, one of his characters said that Tinkerbell was her spirit animal. It was mean lightly, but he received a backlash from communities who believe in spirit animals, and he eventually chose to change that line in the book for future printings. I thought that was very interesting!

Anyway, I think this book treats the topic with respect and reverence. All that being said, my spirit animal would definitely be a cat--a hunter, a small quiet companion, and sometimes a total goofball!

I feel like my Spirit Animal would be a fox. I have red hair and it seems fitting. Alternative option maybe something that could fly although I cant imagine really what kind of bird. Maybe an owl, that does seem appealing.

I would like to be wolf. I like their speed and the way they remain in a pack having one leader and all follows him or her. I like their unity.
