Here is the list of animals that you will be stamped from. Instead of having only a few specific animals, I've picked more general groups or families to represent a broader ranger of animals. So the bear stamp includes all bears from the grizzly to the giant panda and the whale stamp  includes all whales include the subgroups dolphins and porpoises.

Since there is such a broad range of personalities within a group, try to give greater thought to the habitat and traits section rather than their personality. For example, the great white and tiger sharks are known for being dangerous and vicious, while the hammerhead and whale sharks are considered docile or most wild cats are solitary, but lions have complex family systems. Keep in mind that everyone has different opinions of animals and try not to let your opinions effect your voting.

Also, when you are voting, feel free to specify which group member you're voting that person as. For example, I'm voting for whale, specifically the carefree, courageous dolphin or You're like a wild dog, but more of fox than a wolf!

How should I classify a rabbit? I really want to vote someone as a rabbit, but rabbits aren't a stamping option. I even checked to see if they're considered rodents, but they're not. (Apparently, they're more closely related to horses than they are to rodents, but voting someone as a horse just 'cuz they're like a rabbit doesn't seem to make much sense. :D)

I know, that's a tough one. I would say something like "you remind me of a rabbit, and even though rabbits aren't rodents, their personalities are similar" something like that. Hopefully that helps

It's so weird: I'd always thought rabbits *were* rodents. It was only when I was checking my vote that I realized they weren't mentioned in any of the stamps. (Neither are raccoons, although they're sorta related to bears.) But I'll get as close as I can to the personality of a rabbit with one of the other stamp options. Thanks!
