Have you ever put your pet in front of a mirror so they could see their reflection? It is pretty entertaining, huh? Watch what happens when a photographer puts a mirror up in a jungle and films wild animals’ reactions to their reflection. It is even more entertaining!
One thing that distinguishes humans from other animals is that we recognize our own reflection in the mirror. But perhaps there are other animals that could recognize their reflection? Innovative French photographer Xavier Hubert Brierre travelled to Gabon with his wife and set up a giant mirror in several locations in order to capture animals walking by. Leopards, chimpanzees, gorillas and elephants all catch a glimpse of themselves in the mirror and the results are stunning. One of the more amusing reactions is from two leopards!
