Wild Animals React to Seeing Themselves in a Mirror [VIDEO]
We've all seen our dogs or cats look into a mirror and really not be fazed by their image. But this video is really cool! Watch as a mirror is set up in a jungle and wild animals discover themselves in the mirror.
According to the YouTube video description:
Innovative French photographer Xavier Hubert-Brierre travelled to Gabon with his wife and set up a mirror in several locations in order to capture animals walking by.
The results are stunning, with one of the more amusing reactions being from two leopards.
One of them takes several looks at the mirror before it is attacked by a second leopard, who calls off the ambush when he too spots Xavier's mirror.
How amazing!!! My favorite one to watch is the big gorilla. I love watching him bulk up and charge at the mirror. He obviously feels threatened. I can't help but think that he is also thinking to himself "What a dashing gorilla!"
