That's actually a hard question, there are so many animals I'd like to be.
Like birds, so maybe some sort of bird of prey, like an eagle or falcon, but I also like penguins.
But then I like canines, so a wolf.

If mythological animals aren't off-limits, small chance of half-dragon, large chance of half-phoenix.
If I had to choose from a more terrestrial choice in animal though, I'd probably select a Corvid. (Raven/Crow.) It's a tough choice admittedly given as how I identify with many, many animals, but overall I think that'd be my choice.
