The image of the suppressed or of the shadow, suggesting a chance for integration.
The type of animal in the dream is important. Jung suggested that we find out more about the innate character of the animal we have dreamed about. According to Freud, small animals always symbolize children and siblings, while wild animals are a symbol for sexually excited or exciting people, evil urges, or passions.
Dreams of an animal symbolize that you are connecting with your wild side, basic instincts and survival needs. Consider the type of animal. See Zoo.
