Move over influencers of Instagram, these funny animals taking their own selfies are on the way to internet fame. From your average house cat to wild monkeys, these animals have stepped up to the camera, producing some heartwarming and crazy results.
Quokka (above and below)
This Australian animal has gone viral on social media time and time again for their affinity for taking selfies. These animals are indigenous to an island lacking natural predators so they don’t run from or attack humans. Thus, their selfie-loving nature was born.
Seriously, if you needed any more proof as to quokkas being the most camera-ready animals out there, take this selfie as proof. Not only are they perfectly displaying what seems to be joy, but they’re also staring straight at the camera.
What else can you want from an animal selfie?
Who said cats and dogs can’t get along? This mismatched crew of house pets look like they’re taking a break from patrolling their neighborhood’s streets for any wrongdoings.
Sadly for this smiling dog, his spotlight has been stolen by the incident behind him. It’s almost as if you can sense the utter fear radiating off the little dog getting sniffed out.
Sometimes you just want to stop and take a photo of your surroundings to properly document your experience. This pup seems to have wanted the same thing.
Curiosity Got the Big Cats
This selfie is probably the closest any of us will likely get to staring lions dead in the eye, or at least we hope. Whether this was taken shortly before the lions pounced as predators onto the camera or just checked it out for curiosity’s sake, this selfie’s one to remember.
Lions Are Kings of Selfies
Household cats aren’t the only felines to be experts at selfies, as seen above. This big cat has it all: The paw steadying the camera, the stare straight into the camera and even the friend to pose with in the background.
