What's your Chinese animal zodiac

Mine's a rabbit; although a read another about zodiacs and it states that I'm a cat. I'm guessing I'm a cat/rabbit.

You can't be a cat. The cat is not a zodiac and there is an entire story around why. In short she came too late, when God picked the animals for the zodiacs. You could even watch an anime that has this as a theme: Fruits Basket.

Mine is the sheep/goat. Always wished I had some cooler animal.

I'm a Fire Snake. I used to be sad about being a Snake (since snakes often get a bad rap), but after reading-up on what it means I'm really pleased that it's my sign ^_^.

I'm an earth snake. My mom's a wood snake and my dad's a dog (can't recall which element, he was born in march of 1958). Works for me because I love snakes, and I love being the "wise philosopher" sign of the zodiac.

Haven't watched Fruits Basket.

I have watched Etotama, which also has zodiac theme in it.

Hey guys... look on the bright side... at least you're not a BOAR! Bwahahaha! I don't understand the whole elemental aspect of it though... so I don't know what type of boar I am...

It depends on what year you were born in. The Chinese elements (earth, water, fire, wood and metal iirc) cycle through each sign, so an entire cycle is completed through in sixty years (since it's twelve years between signs). Let's see, using H's sign, that means the year of the wood snake was 1965, the fire snake would have been 1977 ('cause you're certainly not as young as me or as old as my mom!), and the earth snake, my sign, 1989. Not sure what the last ones were in 2001 and 2013, I haven't looked at my Chinese astrology book in AGES. If you're curious there's lots of birth-year charts available to see what element you were.

Or for another example, I was born in 1986, which makes me a Fire Tiger. The Fire year before that was 1926.

Nice website, says I'm a metal goat. The description fits me suprisingly well.

Dragon, been proud of it from Day 1 when my mom first told me. It's actually where the "yong" in my screenname "Sooyong" comes from.

Element-wise, I'm an Earth Dragon. Oddly enough the "Soo" in my screenname is "water," but I made the name before I knew that there were elements included in the zodiacs.
