‘Animals In Mirrors Hilarious Reactions’ Video
CaterNews shared that innovative French photographer Xavier Hubert-Brierre travelled to Gabon, in Africa with his wife and set up a mirror in several locations of the forest to capture the responses of animals walking by.
The video starts with a hilarious reaction from a leopard who upon seeing the mirror simply goes up to his reflection and begins pawing and sniffing it. However, the leopard does not notice another leopard that was about to attack hiding behind the mirror, terrified of getting closer to it. The next victim of Brierre’s mirror is a gorilla, who cautiously stares at his reflection before running to attack the mirror causing it to shake. Not wanting to be attacked back it seems, the gorilla quickly flees and backs away from the mirror.
The funniest segment comes from the chimpanzees, as the group of chimps actually look as if they understand that they’re only looking at their own reflection. The only thing the chimps do is admire the way they look by scratching their armpits and “primping” their fur.
