58 Of The Most Mesmerizing Animal Photos - Ever!

Animals in History | March 12, 2020

Written by Jacob Shelton

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.

As for the rest of the bio? That’s pure Jacob, baby. He’s obsessed with the ways in which singular, transgressive acts have shaped the broader strokes of history, and he believes in alternate dimensions, which means that he’s great at a dinner party. When he’s not writing about culture, pop or otherwise, he’s adding to his found photograph collection and eavesdropping on strangers in public.
