Some of the Coolest Dreams Are About Animals

Animals in dreams are almost always powerful indicators of our current situation. Wild animals especially evoke our primal subconscious and can give a great deal of insight into ourselves. Here are the 10 most awesome wild animals to dream about what a dream dictionary might say they mean.

Important factors for interpreting the dream

- Is the animal tame or wild?

- Is the animal friendly or aggressive?

- Is the animal close or far away, and what is it doing?

- How does the animal make you feel?


Alone or in packs Wolves are powerful, beautiful, and dangerous

To dream of a wolf, shows that you have a thieving person in your employ, who will also betray secrets. To kill one, denotes that you will defeat sly enemies who seek to overshadow you with disgrace. To hear the howl of a wolf, discovers to you a secret alliance to defeat you in honest competition.


Tigers are feared man eaters. The Champawat Tiger was responsible for 436 documented deaths.

To dream of a tiger advancing towards you, you will be tormented and persecuted by enemies. If it attacks you, failure will bury you in gloom. If you succeed in warding it off, or killing it, you will be extremely successful in all your undertakings. To see one running away from you, is a sign that you will overcome opposition, and rise to high positions.

Polar Bear

The Polar bear is the largest land carnivore alive, weighting twice as much as a Siberian tiger and standing up to 8 feet tall.

Polar bears in dreams, are prognostic of deceit, as misfortune will approach you in a seeming fair aspect. Your bitterest enemies will wear the garb of friendship. Rivals will try to supersede you.To see the skin of one, denotes that you will successfully overcome any opposition

To dream of a lion, signifies that a great force is driving you. If you subdue the lion, you will be victorious in any engagement. If it overpowers you, then you will be open to the successful attacks of enemies. To see caged lions, denotes that your success depends upon your ability to cope with opposition. To see a man controlling a lion in its cage, or out denotes success in business and great mental power. You will be favorably regarded by women.


Elephants may weight up to 6 tons but they can run about 25 miles per hour. Combine that with a nasty temper and its no surprise they kill around 500 people a year.

One lone elephant, signifies you will live in a small but solid way.

Heed this warning when dreams of this nature visit you. Avoid giving your confidence even to friends.

A Note on Dream Interpretation

Getting an accurate dream interpretation is never as simple as flipping open a dream dictionary and looking up the key symbols. While dream dictionaries are able to get you going in the right direction they will never get you more than part way there. Dreams speak to us in a language of symbolism and those symbols vary in meaning greatly depending on context, emotional state, and hundreds of other factors.

If you are new to dream interpretation I strongly suggest visiting a forum or seeking out someone who provides dream interpretation services. You can also read my other lense on how to get started with dream interpretation or visit my website at to get started.

Best of luck
