If you could morph into animals, which would be your first?

Post by elchupogabre » Tue May 10, 2011 6:58 am

The subject line pretty much explains the question. If you could morph into any animal, which would you choose?

For me personally, I think I would choose something that could fly. The flying descriptions sounds pretty awesome. If I had these powers I would definitely use them for recreation. All the time. As a second question, do you thin that you would ever get tired of morphing into other things? For example, do you think you would ever say "Ah man, I am sick of turning into other stuff all the time, I think I will just stay me for today and watch some t.v.?"

Excluding humans, I'd probably try to morph a chimp. I want to know how different and how similar the mind would be. Any other relatively intelligent animal (dolphins, ravens, etc.) would probably follow.

Would I ever get tired? Depends. If you mean, as in your example, occasionally spending days without morphing anything, sure. The novelty would eventually wear off and it would cease to be as fascinating as the first time. But tire so much I stopped caring to try new morphs every once in a while? I doubt it. There's millions of known animal species right now, and thousands more are discovered every year. Sure, most of those would be grouped in similar clusters such that there'd be little point in morphing more than one in each cluster. But still, there's enough variation to keep me busy for a lifetime.

I would morph my dog for practicality reasons (I mean, how often do people get in contact with cheetahs or hawks or whatever?) and because it would be fun to be a dog.

The key part of the question is "First", for a first morph most of us are going to pick pets or people we hang out with, like friends or family.
Most of us would feel odd morphing a human, so that will not be our first morph.
If I was given the morphing power I might go over to "Pet co." and see what they will let me play with.
I think they have some birds in there.

I took the question to be about non-human animals, but I'm pretty sure a human would be my first morph. It'd probably be unethical (real unethical, not just Cassie-unethical), but still. Think of what you could do if you could look like anyone else any time you wanted for up to 2 hours a a time.

'Sides, if nothing else, human morphs are probably the easiest for beginners. No drastic changes to your body, no new instincts you haven't dealt with before, etc. Perfect to get some practice before you move on to pets and bugs.

Hmm.... something simple. A hampster.

I'd morph the cat. A great starter morph, if you ask me.

Perhaps a long distance bird so that I could fly to Monterey to visit a semi girlfriend.
