I remember Edward saying something in one of the earlier books about maybe their preferences were reflections of their personalities, and I agree with that. It never said(that I recall at least) what Rosalie and Alice's preferences were, but I like to think of them as...well, actually I haven't much. For some reason though, I associate Alice with a rabbit, but rabbits are much too small. Rosalie--I think of a gazelle or something like that. Something graceful. Hm...Alice also seems like she might enjoy a cheetah.

And I randomly think of a llama when I think about Jasper's preference. :lol:

I remember him saying that as well..I don't really see Edward as a mountain lion kind of guy though..I'm trying to think of hardcore, yet more debonaire beasts in the US but can't really think of any..If I had to pick for Edward, I'd say a panther versus a mountain lion..(I know there are no panthers here typically)

Can you imagine if they lived in the serengeti or elsewhere in Africa with some really hardcore animals..That would be like a buffet with over 100 selections to choose from. Of course they would have to mind the endangered species by hunting in moderation but they have not had a problem with that so far.

.

If you think to the books fo rthis, it states several times that the way edward protects bella kind of reminds me at least of a lion. Like IN the field while they are playing Baseball, it says that he got down in a protective crouch in front of her when he read James mind, lions crouch. Lol. that's my point of view on that :-)

I can see the resembelence, Emmet in my eyes looks more like a grizzly type of guy with his stout build and booming laugh, while in my eyes Alice would be the one to like the deer or other deer like animal, as for Roslie, I'm not to sure, possibly, yeah I don't know my mind is lost on what she would eat.

I think it's kinda funny that they act like there favorite snack. :lol: You can so see the grizzly in Emmett.

I think that Edward is like a mountain lion. I agree. Fierce, strong, protective. he he. I can see it.

:) I agree. You can see the similarities between them. I wonder--was the lion that Bella hunted in BD female? :roll: So they hunt similarily...like mates. :lol:

Rosalie sounds like a gazelle type to me, Alice seems like a rabbit, or a small bird. Jasper seems like a hunting-cat type to me. Strategic. Emmett defintly the grizzly.

Any sudggestions for Carlisle and Esme? :? I'm stuck on them.

To me, Carlisle seems like he'd hunt elk. Some thing big and majestic, but it won't damage the environment if he takes more than a few. He seems too compasionate to hunt big hunters.
I agree with you guys on all the others.

I really have no idea what Esme would like.

Hmm...to me, Carlisle seems like the type of guy that doesn't really have a favorite. He's been around for so long, feeding from every kind of animal numerous times that he probably exhausted all preference. But what do I know?

I can see Alice liking a 'winter' animal. Like a polar bear or something.

And I can picture Jasper liking a giraffe. haha. I don't know why, though.

And Rosalie probably likes something exotic. Like...a monkey (or gorilla :D ), maybe a zebra or cheetah. I'm not really too up on my animals.

As for Esme...well, probably something simple. Ooorrrr...possibly a moose... :D Wait, are they extinct? Like I said, I'm not too up on my animals.

I mean, I'm sort of a vegetarian, I don't eat red meat or any pig. Only really chicken, and if I have to. I think it's realy great the way the Cullens/Denali live. They think of Humans as PEOPLE(like Alice put it in BD)...they're people with lives and families. If I was a vamp, I think that the guilt would get to me-but once I let my senses over ride my conscience, I think I'd turn "not vegetarian". loll
