Japanese ETO zodiac animals

Japanese Zodiac is based on a 12-year lunar cycle, and each year is represented by character of a different sign of an animal. People born in a certain animal year are believed to have a set of attributes of that particular animal. These signs are the result of zoning time and direction into twelve blocks, each block being given a name of an animal based on the ancient Chinese concept that all time shifts based on these twelve units.
