And if we're being honest, these are way cuter to look at than other peoples' selfies.
From domesticated pets to zoo animals, to wild creatures met while exploring, the following photos are something to marvel at. Most were captured using a method called camera trapping, which means that when an animal touches or approaches a motion-sensing device near the lens, a photo is captured. Not only is it non-invasive, it results in humorous and cool-to-look at images. In fact, the trend of animal selfies is blowing up fast, similar to cat photos and memes.
All of the following selfies were compiled by Bored Panda. They range from a mischievous monkey in Indonesia taking a selfie after stealing a British photographer’s equipment to pets snapping photos upon being instructed to do so by their humans.
One thing’s clear: they’re certainly more interesting to look at than your neighbors’ selfies.
