    A is interested to know and therefore asks all animals what they would like to be.

    B says: I am an animal.
    A: No, you are not.
    B: But I am.
    A: (OK,) If you are an animal, what would you be?

    Re: Sentence grammar check

    But more usually the question will be phrased "If you were [to be] an animal, what would you be?".

    It is a 2nd conditional form: https://www.usingenglish.com/glossar...nditional.html
