Before I joined the community, I was always searching for my animal species, what animal I truly was. I had no idea how to go about it and what it meant. Joining the community changed a lot for me, because now I had words to describe my experience and a guiding idea of how to find my theriotype. Since then I have slowly been questioning different species and learning more about my own animality through that. What size felt right for me, is something I found out by trying on different animals like rats and bears. Maybe it's because I'm autistic that it's just taking me so much longer to find what feels right for me in different aspects. Where I should live, how I would forage and eat, how I'd interact with fellows of my species or the world at large. I am still questioning some parts, like my vocals.
Thanks for asking this question, what leads me to raccoons now is all the habits, experiences and shifts coming together and raccoon is what I've found so far to be the best fit.
