Animals Watching Themselves in a Mirror Is Utterly Fantastic
Seeing animals in their native environment is pretty magical. Seeing animals see themselves is a whole other kind of magical.
In this viral video, a mirror is placed in different locations, enabling various animals to see their reflections. Their reactions are scattered all over the map, but they’re all entertaining in ways we didn’t know existed.
Leopards, gorillas, elephants — they’re all here in this unlikely social experiment that will delight and amuse you. We can only wonder what’s going through their heads. Maybe the elephant is thinking, “Gee, I could stand to drop a few pounds” or the monkey is like, “I really need a shave.”
And the bird? Well, the bird should’ve said to itself, “I should probably get out of the way of that bird bird coming right at me.”
