Animal Symbolisms

Updated on April 11, 2013

Animal Symbolisms

On this lens, I will go through what every animal symbolizes. I got the idea from a penguin lens that I did (that's why my Intro Picture is a flock of penguins), but now I want to extend my message to even more people through more ways. I want to show you what each animal symbolizes, and you might be shocked with a couple. Animal Symbolism needs to be heard, and I want to give the animals their voice.

Penguin Symbolism

Penguins Symbolize The Following:




Penguins are fast when they slide on their bellies, and they will go after prey until they catch it off guard. Penguins protect their young from the cold winds of their habitat by holding their eggs (and the actual fully developed 4 month old penguin) on its legs so that the young penguin does not freeze to death. As a penguins develops, a young penguin can freeze to death in a matter of seconds if its parent drops the egg or young baby.

Peacock Symbolism

Peacocks Symbolize The Following:




The peacocks always looks young when it dies and its according to Early Christians, its skin never decayed. That is why you can see the peacock in images near Jesus to represent immortality. Just as Jesus resurrected, many people actually thought that peacocks could resurrect loved ones like a Phoenix, so these people made sacred oaths to these peacocks. Their feathers are renewed every year. The fragrant and beautiful creatures known as peacocks were considered very powerful back in the Roman Era, and that is how the peacock symbolizes a lot of important things. People have also referred to the peacock as a snake slayer and a dispeller of evil spirits.


Peacocks are beautiful creatures and were still the way they look in the past. The fact that a peacock's skin never decayed made it symbolize immortality, and eventually resurrection and renewal. Sometimes, an animal receives its symbol based on past events that occurred with early humans.

Crocodile Symbolism

Crocodiles symbolize power (their physical structure in general), totems, and spirit guides. They are magnificent creatures who have a lot of meaning in this world.
