Hello. I am wondering, how do you find out what your Chinese zodiac animal is?

Hi LilacForeverPuppy,
You can find out your Chinese zodiac animal at the end of our story: My favourite day - Chinese New Year.
At the end of the video you can select the year you were born and your Chinese zodiac animal will appear.
Mine is the dog. What is yours?
Have fun!
