A dream about animals can be positive or negative, depending on the details of the dream.
I will try to cover all possible “animal” type dreams here. If you observe animals in most cases it denotes instinctive or basic behaviors, actions and emotions. These emotions, instincts and behaviors are normally repressed deep within their personality due to the fact that they are considered unacceptable by those around them. Seeing the animal in a dream is connected with your own inner feelings. Sometimes these may go unnoticed or unrecognized during the day, but resurface when you are asleep in the form of dreams. When you dream of animals, they will help you in some way to understand your deepest desires and emotions, and of course, each animal brings with it a spiritual message. There may be a focus that you are desiring freedom and that is why the dreams are occurring. If you keep dreaming of animals over and over again it can imply your connection with nature.
In order to discover the true meaning of your dream about animals, you will need to remember all the details of the dream. All the details and circumstances that you saw should not be left out. Think if the animal was wild or tame Try to remember its color, what it ate, if the animal was walking or sitting, if it moved slowly or fast Once you have all the areas you could see it is easier to understand the context of the dream.
The environment and the place where the animal resided is also very important. The animals in your dream could be a symbol of your true behavior in real life. I feel that after reading the dream psychology literature of Carl Jung and Freud, the animal may be connected to your sexual nature, which may also be represented by the animal you see in your dream.

If the animal is speaking to you, consider it to be a message from the spirit world that you should pay close attention to. Here I am going to mention some popular animals in dreams.
