Pageant Question About What Animal You Would Want to Be
Today’s Pageant Question of the Day is: If you could be an animal, what animal would you want to be?
Why this question was asked: Random, thought-provoking questions such as this one are asked frequently in pageants, especially in younger age divisions.
This is how some of our Instagram followers answered the question:
Beth (supbeth11): A pigeon. They are living the life. They don’t hunt and no one hunts them. They just walk or fly around wherever they want!
Holly (hollygalligher): A lion because they are leaders not followers and know how to defend for themselves. They are also strong and can be independent if needed.
M’tajia (mtajia.ka): For some odd reason, I’ve always enjoyed monkeys! There’s something about their lively and human-like personalities that draw my interests. If I could be any animal, I would definitely love to be a monkey. Besides, what could I really do without thumbs?
Kierstin (amor._.aeternus): I would want to be a Crowned Lemur, also known as the Eulemur Coranatus. They are a very unique and playful animal and, like all lemurs, they are only found in Madagascar. I had the amazing opportunity to study these animals for three months at the Duke Lemur Center.
Hannah (venna1987): If I could be any animal, I would be an elephant. Elephants have always been comforting to me. When I was a young child, I was in the hospital a lot and ever since my eye surgery at age five when I got my first stuffed elephant, I have always loved them. Whenever I’m hospitalized, my mom always goes to the gift shop and buys me a new elephant. I currently have five!
Emily (emilyawasheleski): Given the opportunity, I would choose a horse. They are majestic beings and when you look into their eyes they mirror your soul. To me, horses are selfless, remarkably intuitive, and my greatest teachers of life. They were also the chosen animal by many tribes who would bravely go into battle with great strength, stability, and honor.
Our favorite answer:
Alexa (alexalanee): I’d like to be a fish of some variety. The ability to breathe under water and explore an entirely new world than the one I’m used to would be amazing to experience. The ocean is so beautiful and full of life we never get to see, so being a fish would be incredible, as long as no one wanted to eat me for dinner!
The judges would like this answer the best because she gives specific reasoning and adds a touch of humor. (Read: Pageant Question About Childhood Memories)
