    I hope this is self-explanatory and I'll start:

    I'd like to have a cat's ability to fall asleep instantly in virtually any conditions.

    I'm quite taken with the idea of having a bat’s echo-location ability.

    I'd give hibernation a shot too.

    What about a dolphins ability to sleep different parts of their brains in shifts?
    Could be useful...

    Karamazov: that would be absolutely amazing actually :)

    My cat farts (silently and lethally) when someone is pestering him or invading his space - I'll take that one too :p

    A caribou's ability to find food like lichen underneath the snow, and their feet to walk on the snow. That way, I would not have to worry about surviving up here, if I was lost outside. Only have to look out for wolves.

    You can actually do this, albeit to a far more limited degree. If you practice going about an area you know with your eyes closed and making a sucking or clicking noise focused straight ahead of you, you can learn to recognize the different echoes it makes bouncing off surfaces at different angles and distances. It's nowhere near as good as a bat's, of course, but it does come in handy when you're trying to navigate in the dark.

    I think I'd take the color-changing abilities of the cuttlefish. I like the prospect of being able to hide in plain sight.

    I want the patience and power of the elephant. They are calm and will protect their herd.

    I wouldn't mind being a dog. Our dogs spend most of the time sleeping.

    Being a penguin would be nice, I could slide around on ice, I can swim through the water with incredible speed. I could have a diving competion with the colony. Then I could do an aggresive tap dance routine. :cool:

    I wanna fly like a bird, which I've done in rare but empowering dreams. But the gracefullness of a cat is enviable too.

    I never dreamt I was flying but I've read it's extremely common...

    I'd give one year of life to switch places with my cat for just one day :D


    Good night vision would also be a fun thing to have.

    An eagle.

    When I have dreams of flying, I am usually having a lot of difficulty maintaining control.
