power animal

Have you ever seen the movie Thumbsucker? Keanu Reeves is in it, he plays a dentist who introduces the concept of the power animal, his is a wolf.

Han and I, and many of our friends, have a bit of a thing for small, wide eyed primates. Han in particular loves Lemurs (that's her thumb in front of the lemur enclosure at the Melbourne Zoo below), and I've always felt a special affinity for the Slow Loris. This week has been taken over by Pygmy Marmosets however, because they are TINY, and generally have hilarious facial expressions. One was born in a zoo in NSW recently weighing about 20g, that's LESS THAN A HUMAN THUMB.

  1. I always thought my power animal should be a big cat: a tiger or, more recently, a lion. However, my shamanic friend tells me my power animal is a snake who gets some help from a horse. I hope its a pretty snake.
