It's a given that we, as human beings all love funny animal photos. In fact, it's a whole huge niche on the Internet. But let's take it one step further; it's time to show you a gallery of candid images of animals in nature...like you've never seen before. Heck Ya!

We got shots of frogs riding on top of turtles, baby blue herons that look like dinosaurs, bats flying with their babies and, of course, a chimpanzee feeding milk to a leopard cub. My point is: We have photos to blow your mind. Come on, let's take a journey into the world of insane animal photos!

Weird things are afoot here. Let's digest this photo for a minute. What you've got here is a chimp feeding a leopard cub with a baby bottle. And the chimp is sitting in a people chair. So what you've got in this image is one species feeding another species. This isn't normal behavior for this member of the Hominidae family. 

Or, I'm thinking this photo is an outtake from the 1971 movie, Escape from the Planet of the Apes.

Leopard cubs, on the other hand, normally stay with their moms for roughly two years, at which time they'll learn to hunt. Being fed by a chimpanzee is usually not in the formula.

The happiest crocodile you'll ever see

Crocodiles, who first gained international fame from the 1986 Paul Hogan movie, Crocodile Dundee, have good reason to celebrate. There are about 23 different species of crocodilians. These large aquatic reptiles live throughout the world in tropical regions in Africa, Asia, the Americas and Australia. Also, they can bite your flippin' head off. Wouldn't that make you jump for joy - if you were a crocodile?

If you happen to encounter a crocodile and it lashes out at you, the first thing you need to do is to aggressively fight back. Why? A crocodile's jaw has so much power that once it’s locked, no amount of struggling will get it back open. Better avoid that. One of the best defenses for fighting off a crocodile is to try gouging his eyes out - being this is one of the few vulnerable spots on a croc. If a crocodile eye-gouge is not possible, the next best thing is to attack its nostrils, ears, or palatal valve. Pretty much any of those scenarios says, "My, what a crappy day!"
