BULLS, crabs, goats, lions – don't worry, we haven't gone all Noah's Ark, we're talking star signs.
There are a total of eight animal symbols in the zodiac, each one a reflection of the sign it represents.
If you've ever wondered what animal you're similar to, the answer could be revealed by your star sign.
We did a poll here and so many of us identified with the animal depicted by the zodiac, especially Leos.
You can often spot a Leo by their long and usually wild (basically lockdown, then) hair.
Similarly, a Taurus will feel as strong as a bull especially when they're passionate about a project.
Let's take a look at which animals go with which sign.
March 21 – April 20
The ram represents strength and fertility while its horn a plenty symbolises abundance. Historically rams were seen as symbols of leadership.
Aries folk are often in managerial positions, but they can butt heads with their enemies. Don't say we didn't warn you.
April 21 – May 21
The strong and persistent bull has two speeds: calm and collected while grazing in the field or wild and ready to charge.
Taureans, like The Queen tend to be dependable, determined and often a bit stubborn.
June 22 – July 22
The shelled trooper likes to protect herself and her loved ones using her hard exterior.
Cancers are soft and vulnerable on the inside though and only allow their closest allies into their circle.

Ah, Leo, could you be depicted by anything other than a lion?
Queen of the jungle, you love to bask in the sun's light and generally consider yourself to be a bit of a showstopper. Darling, you are.
Like the lion though, you can sometimes be a little bit lazy and, dare we say it, a teeny bit arrogant.
October 24 – November 22
Ok, so the scorpion is said to signify the wildfire of a Scorpio's rage as well as their self-protective nature.
There's no need to be scared of them though. Treat them with respect and they'll give you all the love in the world.
November 23 – December 21
Half human, half horse, this inquisitive mix is perfect for wanderer Sagittarius.
A skilled archer, they have a deep-rooted desire to travel and not settle for the status quo.
December 22 – January 20
While not the strongest animal in the pack, the goat is a survivor and will shimmy its little legs up the mountain until it gets to the top.
Its qualities of patience, timing, and remaining alert are the reasons why so many of these signs make great entrepreneurs.
February 19 – March 20
It's no coincidence that go-with-the-flow Pisces is represented by a fish.
The Pisces glyph is symbolised by two fish swimming in opposite directions,which can indicate the fact that folk of this sign find it difficult to make a decision.
Don't worry, we haven't forgotten you Aquarius, Gemini, Virgo and Libra.
You are the only four signs that aren't represented by an animal, but it doesn't make you any less special.
January 21 – February 18
The sign of Aquarius is always moving forward and energises those they come into contact with.
The water bearer is giving life to everyone they meet and Aquarians will often adopt this charitable outlook.
May 22 – June 21
Represented by the twins, Geminis are said to have a dual personality and their strength lies in their chameleon-like nature.
It's probably why so many actors share the sign because they can seamlessly transform themselves into other roles.
August 24 – September 22
The beautiful maiden represents purity and tranquility. Now, we know a few Virgos and we can't say they're all like that, but what they do have is patience and understanding.
The maiden respects herself and prides herself on her organisational skills, making her one of the most dependable signs of the zodiac.
