A Quote by Ingerman on power animal and shamanism
Your power animal represents the entire species of the animal that is protecting and helping you. For example, you don't have the spirit of a specific eagle, kangaroo, or squirrel protecting you. Rather, you have the protection of the spirit of the entire species of eagle, kangaroo, or squirrel.
