The Banana Slug Totem by genkistamps The Banana Slug Totem by genkistamps
"MY TOTEM IS A WOLF!" "OMG SO IS MINE!" "ME TOO!"

ENOUGH WITH THE WOLVES. There are more than three species you can pick to be your totem animal! It seems like every 14 year old girl and their dog has a wolf totem. My crocotta daemon is facepawing.

So this is dedicated to those with unique totems. No, mine is not the banana slug, I don't do the whole "totem animal" thing.

If I did, you bet your ass my totem animal would be the banana slug.

I guess the banana slug could be an animal totem because, I guess they could choose people and teach them that speed isn't always everything.

yay banana slugs!  I don't really think they are a totem for me, but who knows. I have so many other totems, so why not? XD; (I think the entire animal kingdom is my totem sometimes...the way I keep switching from one to another all the time...XD; )

Anyway...I used to go to the Oregon coast on vacation...and I'd find these guys all over the place.  They're cute. n_n

...I have a lizard with a doglike skeleton instead of a lizardlike one. It's kind of like the least intimidating or scary or majestic animal ever. Kind of silly and friendly looking. Cheery and nice to talk to. Didn't really think of him as a spirit animal, really, but he fits well enough into other people's definitions of what they are. He just showed up one day while I was lying around introspecting (which I do to improve and evolve on my beliefs), or at least I think that's where he's from. Don't really remember.

I would be honored to have the banana slug as my totem animal. I haven't looked into that stuff much, but mine would probably be some random bird of prey. XD

:/ For some reason I think my totem animal is a dragonfly. Even though that's a bug.
Every year there is always the same size, brown/green dragonfly that hangs around around me/the car when I'm outside. This goes on from about Feb-Nov. :/ But looking at the symbolism, i guess it matches pretty well with me :)

I think most people who go to UC Santa Cruz have probably have banana slugs as their totem.



P.S. If you didn't know UCSC's school mascot is a banana slug. =D

I don't have a totem. People say im a mothering bear, but I would rather have a crocodile totem or a leech.

You mention you have befriended a Crocotta? :}
I've always wondered about those. They are very gorgeous creatures indeeed.

I've met quite a few types of demon so far, but djinns and crocottas made me wary since they don't, according to hearsay, usually enjoy being near a human.
But I've met a few djinns who've been quite caring individuals. So I am assuming it is all based upon personal preference?

And my spirit guardian is a native american from my cherokee ancestry. Well that was one of his lives anyways. He does, infact, have a wolf totem, but adores pack animals in general.

My totem is a wolverine. I have two friends that seriously are wolf totems. Two fox totems, two bear totems, one cricket, two snakes, a SLOTH, yes, sloth (he's an interesting friend) a lynx, a monkey... yeah...

Most of us went on meditation journeys to find our totems. Pretty awesome.

Eagles. Don't forget eagles. God, between suburban "native princess" types and flag-themed knife collectors, they've been sapped of their cool factor more thoroughly than vampires.

Anyway: Giant isopod.
