27 Types of Dreams about Animals and What They Mean ~ Janey Davies.

27 Types of Dreams about Animals and What They Mean.

By Janey Davies.

May 19th, 2019.

 

 

There are many theories as to why we dream, but dreams about animals are particularly interesting.
We use animals in our everyday lives to describe certain aspects of human behaviour. For example, we ‘horse’ around with our friends when we have fun, we call a person a ‘snake’ if we don’t trust them, and someone is a ‘rat’ if they talk behind our backs.

Therefore, animals can symbolise parts of our personality.

And as we all know, dreams are packed full of symbols and hidden meanings. So whenever you dream about an animal, you can be sure that it relates to a personal aspect in your life.
Before we look at the different type of animals in dreams, it is worth remembering that the situation in which you find yourself with the animal is also important.
  • Domesticated animals in your dream suggest you are aware of your responsibilities but find them overwhelming at times.
  • Wild animals are an indication to express yourself in a more liberating fashion.
  • If you were attacked by the animal, this suggests your emotions are being forced down and they suddenly erupted out of nowhere.

27 Dreams about Animals and Their Interpretation


 
1. Apes
 
 
 
Be aware that someone in your circle of friends, family or work is behaving in a mischievous way to undermine you.
 
 
2. Ants
 
 
 
Ants in your dream relate to work. If you observed them in their natural habitat and they were healthy and organised, it means the change of employment you were considering is a good idea. If they were crawling over you, it signifies setbacks in your current work situation.
 
 
3. Bears
 
 
 
 
Bears are associated with strength, security and power. They are family-orientated creatures and are linked to childhood and maternal instincts. Is there a family problem you need to attend to?
 
 
4. Bees
 
 
 
Bees are a symbol of good fortune and linked to communication. If they were buzzing around and busy, then this is a great sign. However, if they were dead or listless, it is an indication you should not put too much trust in so-called friends.
 
 
5. Bulls
 
 
 
Dreams featuring bulls usually mean tough opposition in some form or another, unless the bull was light in colour. The bull also represents anger and issues over territory.
 
 
6. Cats
 
 
 
 
Dreaming of cats might seem lovely and innocent, but in actual fact, cats are a symbol of magic and hidden powers. They are associated with feminine sorcery and this is a warning against treachery and deceit, particularly amongst your most trusted friends.
 
 
7. Dogs
 
 
 
 
Dogs, on the other hand, are a symbol of loyalty, trust and unconditional love. This dream is related to good times with friends unless the dog behaves in an aggressive way. In which case, the dream is a warning not to trust your friends.
 
 
8. Donkeys
 
 
 
You wouldn’t guess, but love and sex are symbolised by the humble donkey, and especially if you are riding a white one. However, a braying donkey is a warning that a clandestine affair is about to be made public.
 
 
9. Elephants
 
 
 
To dream of these animals is a good sign. They represent the power of our emotions, strength of character and sheer steadfastness to conquer any situation.
 
 
10. Foxes
 
 
 
 
If the animal in your dreams was a fox, this is a warning that you need to use all your cunning and expertise to ward off danger from unscrupulous rivals.
 
 
11. Gorillas
 
 
 
Gorillas are strong but unpredictable. This dream is an indication of a misunderstanding that has caused you pain.
 
 
12. Horses
 
 
 
 
There are many different interpretations of horses in dreams. Basically, seeing horses is a good sign, this includes foals, horseshoes, racing horses and grooming them. If you were riding a horse, you should receive a rise in status, but if you were thrown off, expect some opposition to this rise.
 
 
13. Jackals
 
 
 
In real life, jackals are cunning and wily doglike wolf mammals that scavenge for food. In dreams, they are a sign not to trust overambitious friends with outlandish plans.
 
 
14. Leeches
 
 
 
As you might expect, leeches are hugely symbolic in dreams. If you dream about this bloodsucking slug-like creature, it means you are going to have to face a drain on your resources.
 
 
15. Lice
 
 
 
Lice are an indication of petty annoyances or grievances that are irritating but not major obstacles. They are typically due to the stupidity of others.
 
 
16. Lions
 
 
 
 
These animals in your dreams can have two meanings. Lion sounds very much like ‘lying’ and could be an indication you think someone close to you is lying, or that you are hiding a secret. On the other hand, lions are a symbol of leadership and majesty. Is someone jealous of your success?
 
 
17. Lizards
 
 
 
Lizards are all about quick-thinking, survival and having their wits about them. This is what you need to be. Be cautious when you deal with others, and especially keep your eyes open for false friends.
 
 
18. Magpies
 
 
 
To dream of magpies is a message from your subconscious to give up on that unrequited love. Whether it be a lover or a friendship, they are not interested, it is time to move on.
 
 
19. Moles
 
 
 
Any kind of burrowing animals in dreams are a sign of hidden emotions that we don’t or can’t face. They are also a symbol of innocence.
 
 
20. Mice
 
 
 
Mice in dreams are related to outside influences. They represent meddling in your affairs or unwelcome visitors.
 
 
21. Ostriches
 
 
 
This is another hugely symbolic dream that indicates a refusal to see or acknowledge what is going on around you. You must take your head out of the sand and examine the situation.
 
 
22. Peacocks
 
 
 
 
Peacocks are all about showing off and displays of grandeur and this dream is a warning of failure due to overconfidence and hubris on your part.
 
 
23. Rabbits
 
 
 
Rabbits in your dreams are an indication of increased responsibilities but ones you enjoy, not chores.
 
 
24. Rats
 
 
 
As you might expect, black rats are not a good sign. They denote the signs of hidden jealousyin close friends or family. However, white rats are benign and signify protective forces around you.
 
 
25. Ravens
 
 
 
 
These omens of bad fortune are a symbol of sadness and grief, usually suppressed by the dreamer.
 
 
26. Snakes
 
 
 
Snakes in dreams usually have sexual connotations. They are phallic symbols and represent our sexual urges. Another interesting factor about snakes is that they are also temperature-dependent. If the snake in your dream was cold and sluggish, this could mean you feel bored sexually.
 
 
27. Zebras
 
 
 
No two zebras have the same pattern of stripes, therefore, they are unique creatures. To dream about a zebra is an encouraging sign to expand your creativity to the next level.
 
These are just a few dreams about animals. If you have had an animal dream and it’s not on our list, let me know and I’ll look it up for you.

5 Remarkable Examples of Animal Intelligence That Will Leave You in Awe ~ Sherrie.

5 Remarkable Examples of Animal Intelligence That Will Leave You in Awe.

By Sherrie.

April 19, 2019


 

Animal intelligence could stretch to more than just an elephant’s excellent memory! As these examples will reveal.

The intelligence of animals surpasses what we realize. But the first question is, how is animal intelligence measured? There have been many experiments carried out that could prove animal intelligence really exists. We only have to look at Pavlov’s Dogs study to see how animals can quickly learn to associate a sound with behaviour or action.

But other, far more compelling research shows activity is more evident than we thought when it comes to the brains of animals.

Here are just a couple of impressive things that reveal animal intelligence at its peak!

Animals are spiritual beings

Of course, you heard that right. There is evidence to suggest animals can react emotionally to their surroundings. They can feel and respond to grief, e.g. in a death, and can express the wonderful feeling of existence itself.

Psychologists Marc Bekoff and his colleague Steven Kotler looked at whether animals really experienced spirituality. Bekoff and Kotler found ample evidence that animals can have a morally conscious and emotional intelligence.

Whilst Bekoff and Kotler’s work is anecdotal, Darwinian theory supports it well. The belief of Darwin was evolutionary continuity. This belief states that there were no different kinds of intelligence, only different degrees with the various species.

“The bottom line is that if we have something, they (other animals) do too. It would behoove us to study the questions at hand rather than dismiss them because animals can’t possibly do or experience something that we think is uniquely human.”

-Darwin

Only humans were self-conscious, linguistic, moral, and rational. This is what we believed for a long time. Now we know the truth. There’s more startling evidence as well. It seems that animals could possibly think about pains and pleasures from the past,

Darwin said. They actually possess “excellent memories and some power of imagination”.


Solving puzzles is just as easy for crows as 5-year old children.

Again, this could be the title of a well-thumbed kids’ comic book. But experiments recently conducted, and many of them, suggests truth in the crow’s intelligence. These are indeed creatures with remarkable talent, especially when it comes to solving problems.

The University of Auckland researchers discovered that crows noticed that liquid rises when objects are dropped into tubes of water, water which held a treat. They would then be able to reach the treat that was inside. If the water levels were higher, they could get the treat faster as well. Objects that sank instead of floated would also reduce the time it took for the treat to come to the top of the tube.

Crows can also bend a wire to fish treats from small tubes. This was also quickly realized by the research team. This is why researchers compare a crow’s intelligence is to 5-7-year-olds.

Elephants can show empathy

An elephant never forgets, right? But, they can also seemingly show understanding and empathy. During controlled experiments, elephants showed their desire to work together with tasks. When learning to pull a rope to acquire a treat, they did this together instead of alone.

Contrary to what some may believe, elephants do not ponder long over the dead. They have been known to eat their dead or at least, sniff them and walk away. As for their reaction to remains, such as bones, an elephant may linger for a while or become aggravated for some unknown reason.

A recent study proves such behavior: When an African elephant sees a skull from its own kind, it stares longer than when rhino or buffalo skulls are introduced. It’s the same with sticks as opposed to ivory.

The elephant is smart enough to know the difference between something originating from their kind and something else entirely.

Dogs can be taught words

We’ve all tried to teach Fido how to shake hands and Rover to cartwheel. But John Pilley, Psychology researcher, went a step further and trained his dog, Chaser to recognize over a thousand toys, by name. What’s more, over 90% of the time, Chaser could recognize certain toys when Pilley asked for them.

Chaser has learned even more, including recognizing verbs and nouns taught by Pilley Instructions are easy for her, she can put her paw and nose on objects, and even pick them up.

This is an achievement of intelligence for canines, and all it took was hours of intensive training. Chaser is special and not all dogs can learn at her pace.

Picking locks are easy for Cockatoos

Finally, let’s learn about the cheeky Cockatoo. They too display animal intelligence enough to understand tricky puzzles and solve them, all for a delicious treat. A 2013 study by Alice Auersperg, revealed the difficulty of such puzzles, and that the bird actually has to first open the box. Here’s how the trick worked.

Inside the box was a cashew. So, the cockatoo had to pull out a bolt, remove a pin, take out a screw, turn a wheel, and removed a latch by using a sliding technique. All these things, the Cockatoo accomplished fairly easy.

Without opposable thumbs, as humans have, this did take a long time. It did take two hours for the Cockatoo, but eventually, the bird solved the intricate puzzle. A bird had a goal and completed the goal, a goal that wasn’t an easy and quick task. This says quite a bit about the bird’s perseverance, wouldn’t you say.

I ACCEPT
Whilst this research can be contested, it could also lay the foundations for new ways of thinking about animal intelligence. Next time you spend time with your pet, maybe you can watch them more, and learn a few morals and lessons about determination.
