In Chinese astrology, there are 12 animal signs that represent each year. It is believed that these animals signify the perceptions of how others see you, or how you present yourself, according to your birth year. Interesting, isn’t it? Those born under the year of the Dragon are supposed to be proud and loyal; Roosters are said to be meticulous and practical. For this rumble, we want to see your best photos of the Chinese Zodiac animals! Maybe you have a sexy snapshot of a snake, a cute portrait of a rabbit, or … an intense image of a fiery dragon? We’ll pick 3 Winners out of the pool, and reward them with 12 Piggies each!

    I always thought I was a Ram, but not according to this. Good thing I held off on my ram tattoo. Maybe it's time I stop taking advice from Chinese restaurant place mats.
