Do therians believe they're an animal soul in a human body, like the species equivalent of being transgendered?
As with the reincarnation question, some do. But again, it varies widely.
Some therians do, at least occasionally, feel a sense of "wrongness" about their human body, sometimes to the extent of having phantom-limb sensations for parts of the animal body they would like to have that their human body lacks, like wings or a tail. "Species dysphoria" would be one way of describing this. And some of those attribute this to their soul being of a different nature than their body.
Others disagree with this for various reasons: some don't feel the soul has species, some value their human nature as much as their animal nature, and may feel the two sides to be more or less in harmony.
