mine are crows, bears, and zooplankton
crows are the bird brainiacs who exude coolness. striking
bears are fun. they can just awkwardly stand on 2 legs and stalk a human for no reason, destroy property. they also have good shape language. there's some memorable messaging using bears - "For some people, the bear is easy to see. Others don't see it at all. Some people say the bear is tame. Others say it's vicious. And dangerous." i dont care for reagan but these sentences go hard. a bear that's hiding and peeking out in good fun. one that's not only vicious, but also dangerous, as an afterthought.
zooplankton - they come in many cool shapes, notably with radiolarians, and their translucence is exquisite. they all float with the currents, very chill
