    China: a big panda: beautiful, rare and too corrupt to do anything; and a dragon: worshiped and feared by people, constantly swallow people for no reasons.

    England is very much like a Bulldog: small, stubborn, tricky to deal with, with a generally inflated idea of what is sensible for it to take on, but packed enough with power that it can actually take on things that ought to be too much for a creature of its size.

    Our national symbol is a lion, but because we're dependant on the sea and have some sort of a love/hate relation with it, it would be a sealion.

    Also because they look so odd (we're a bit of an oddball in Europe), they're cute (small country), they make a lot of noise, but are mostly harmless.

    Ireland is a woodland creature of some sort, maybe a hedgehog or a fox

    Britain would be something small, that was once big, I'm not really sure what animal this would be, as animals tend to grow and get bigger.

    Italy would be something dramatic, again I don't know of any dramatic animals.

    I'm crap at this.

    Britain could be a ballonfish!

    Finland would be a malaria mosquito; you can declare war on Finland/malaria, but you won't beat it. ;)

    What a coincindence. I just saw the QI-show about that frog.

    Norway has to be an animal that dislikes rich people and the EU, by the way. I'm not sure what that can be.

    For Norway, I would say the Goat: Cranky, mountain dwelling, somewhat intelligent (at least when compared to sheep, but then again, what animal isn't intelligent when compared to sheep?) and annoying enough to piss everyone off, but not annoying enough to get anyone to do anything about it.
