Dogs and cats are a lot of fun, but have you ever yearned to have a pet that's a little more... exotic? No, we don't mean pythons, chinchillas, or ocelots. We're talking about fantastical animals, from the worlds of myth and fiction! Take this quiz to find out which legendary creature would be the best pet for you, and make sure there's a vet in your area that handles crytozoological cases.
1. What is your dream vacation?
a) Touring old European castles, fo'sho. I love Medieval history, and am practically hypnotized by those gorgeous tapestries.
b) Bumming around the tropics on a boat. There's nothing better than the sound of waves and the smell of seawater.
c) Dude, I could hole up in an old-growth forest for months. Tree-houses are where it's at.
d) I'm a total adrenaline junkie. Come vacation time, you'll find me hang-gliding, cave-diving, or even walking on hot coals. I'm loco, capeesh?
e) I'm obsessed with the ancient world, so I spend a lot of time in the Mediterranean basin, where civilization was first kickstarted.
2. What kinds of abilities do you want your pet to have?
a) I'm looking for a super-sprinter! It would be cool if my pet could sword-fight too, but maybe that's asking too much.
b) Oh, I want my pet to be insanely intimidating. I'm not saying I'm going to sic it on anybody, but, well, you'd be wise not to cross me if I have it's loyalty.
c) I just want a cute, cuddly pal to play around with! Curiosity is a major plus, because I love embarking on new adventures.
d) Flight would be pretty great, especially if my pet allows me to ride it. No more waiting at the bus stop for me!
e) Supernatural wisdom, for sure, as well as the ability to learn human languages. If my pet is going to be fantastical, I may as well be able to chat with it.
3. What is your favorite color?
If you chose mostly As, your fantastical pet is a Unicorn! A super-smart horse with a sword on its face? Talk about an awesome pet! Some variants of unicorns even talk, and given their proud and aggressive nature, they probably deliver some spectacular zings.
If you chose mostly Bs, your fantastical pet is a Kraken! Explore the oceans with the ultimate sea monster. With a handy Kraken by your side, no waters are off limits and no depths are unreachable. Plus, it's basically a living water park. How fun would it be to dive into the sea off a Kraken tentacle? The correct answer is MAXIMUM FUN.
If you chose mostly Cs, your fantastical pet is an Ewok! Ewoks are a blast to hang out with, as evidenced by the epic Rebel rager they threw on Endor. They are adorable, affectionate, and will worship you like a god. What's not to like?
If you chose mostly Ds, your fantastical pet is a Dragon! Imagine showing up to school everyday on the back of a flying, fire-breathing beast! Not only could you travel the world atop your glorious pet, you could have cookouts whenever you wanted. Way handy.
If you chose mostly Es, your fantastical pet is a Sphinx! It has the body of a lion, the wings of a bird, and the face of a human. Quite the hodgepodge, and yet the magisterial sphinx manages to pull it off. You'll never be bored because this creature is the original riddler, and can prophesize the future to boot. Just be sure you eventually answer your sphinx's brainteaser correctly, because they have a bad habit of eating people who leave them hanging.
