How do jungle animals actually react when they discover their own reflection? This has been extensively tested in this interesting video and the results are beautiful and exciting to watch.
A mirror in the middle of nature – you don’t see that every day. French photographer Xavier Hubert-Brierre set it up in a central African forest area for some nice shots to capture the reactions of the animals walking by, and they did a really good job.
Whether leopard, monkey or elephant: None of the forest dwellers can avoid a look in the mirror and the reactions of the animals are sometimes interested, sometimes frightened, sometimes playful. Above all, the monkeys approach the unusual object with a lot of curiosity and interest – you could watch that for hours, right?
