Animals are critical to our existence. Sometimes they are covered in fur; however, the diverse animal kingdom ranges from sponges to insects to whales. For ages, people have relied on animals for nourishment, transportation and labour support. They have a long history in art and mythology. Some of us have animal phobias. Pets bring us companionship, joy and healing. Wild animals awe us. We perceive characteristics in animals, such as the wise owl and the sneaky rat. People sometimes behave in ways described as animalistic. Share your literal, abstract or in-between concepts of ANIMALS.
