From wild animals to domesticated dogs and cats, these creatures have perfected the art of the selfie. Sometimes, it’s with a human. Allan Dixon, a self-proclaimed “animal whisperer,” takes pictures with the likes of quokka and kangaroos. To do this, he first spends time with each creature in order to earn their trust. Then, when the moment is right, he snaps a selfie.
While Dixon takes a highly-methodical approach, other pictures are more serendipitous. In 2011, photographer David Slater left his camera unattended while at a monkey reserve in Indonesia. A curious macaque monkey named Naruto grabbed the device and shot a couple of charming photos. Oddly enough, they were later the subject of a legal battle—trying to determine to whether a human or primate owned the copyright—that was finally settled in early 2016. (Slater still owns the copyright.)
