( - The CBS News Facebook page features a video of a network producer asking Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders if he has a "spirit animal."

The video posted on Friday shows CBS Producer Kylie Atwood asking the candidate, “Do you have an animal spirit – a spirit animal?”

“Do I have a spirit animal? Well, that’s a hard question,” Sanders replies.

“Is there any animal that you like, feel you really connect to?” Atwood continued.

“I love animals, I really do,” Sanders said.

Eventually Sanders discusses how he loves animals and nature and the importance of “not seeing a species wiped out by climate change.”

CBS News' Senior Political Editor, Steve Chaggaris, then asks Sanders if he can do a quick word association.

“President Obama,” Chaggaris says.

“Brilliant man,” Sanders replies.
