Tolkien Animals and Characters

How about a game where you name an animal in LotR, (or anything else by Tolkien, I guess) and everyone has to say which character was compared to that animal - I hope that makes sense!

I'll start with an easy one

A Dog

I think it might be Wormtongue as he follows Saruman around.

Well, I don't know who goes next, but the correct answers were Sam (see the end of "Shadow of the Past") and Gollum (after frodo reprimands him)

I guess Arwen_princess_of_Rivendell is next

Gollum was thought to be a black squirrel from Mirkwood by Faramir's men.

Yes, at least twice, Faramir's men confused Gollum for a black squirrel. Sorry I took so long, Arestevana! Your turn!

Erm, not who I was thinking of, but I'm going to give it to you because I messed up. I meant Shelob, but I doubt that's what is wanted by 'Characters' so yeah, go ahead. You're probably right.

Could it be Scatha?

That's probably not it, but it was just a hunch.

Wormtongue? Gandalf does call him a "witless worm".

I was thinking of Grima, as I didn't really think that Worm as an alternate term for Dragon was the same as worm the animal [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]. Carry on Horse Maiden.

Oh no! I'm so sorry, but I was gone for a week. And this is a total letdown, but I don't know a question here. So someone else can go at their leisure.

This isn't really a character comparison, but something was said to be like "a hive of ants".

When Gandalf was telling his tale at the council of Elrond he compared Buckland to "a hive of ants that had been stirred up with a stick" when he went there looking for Frodo after his escape from Isengard.

No guessed yet? Okay, I'll give a hint, though this is very easy already (to me, atleast).

Hint: It is not in the LotR.

This same reference is made many times throughout the book. I will take any.

It's Bilbo in "The Hobbit" - the trolls tell him he sort of resembles a scared rabbit, or something like that (judging by his hairy feet). I always found this funny! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

T'is may well be, but I didn't have them in mind. Keep searching.
HINT: There's an exact quote where a character likens himself and the others to hounds - it's from FOTR.

Sam, Merry, and Pippin, in telling Frodo how they shall follow him if he doesn't let them go with him.

And that sentences has too many pronouns, me thinks.
