I came out with the horse. I left them in this order: The cow, the goat, the lion, and the monkey.


From most to least important value passion,helping others,harmony in a group,pride,weath


Lion first bc it really never needed me. The horse next bc maybe be it could run out. The goat third bc while it didnt seem like it could survive easily on its own, the cow is a valuable source of milk strength and if necessary meat in a pinch and the monkey is the closest i can get to companionship so I consider it a child at this point. And then finally, knowing that i would be able to leave the desert, i begrudgingly leave the cow behind.


Kinda true, I came out with the lion at the end, and since the beginning he was the chosen one. I knew it wouldn't be logical to keep it, but I wanted anyway.


I think it was pretty accurate but it chose the animals based on logic and what would better help me survive, the monkey went first because it would just be a drain on my resources, the goat went second for the same reason, then the lion and finally the horse, I thought the cow would not only provide me with sustenance and I can ride it if I got tired
