20 Magnificent and Hilarious Creatures

Humpback Whale and Dolphin

Raccoon

Baboon

Lion Cub

Photographed by Conor Lachlan Myhrvold, age 17 at Moremi Wildlife Reserve, Okavango Delta, Botswana. The cubs were isolated in the environment so this may have been the first interaction between human and cub.

Rockhopper Penguins

The Neck, Saunders Island, Falkland Islands by Laura Crawford Williams was a once in a lifetime shot. The antics of these animals happened so quickly that the photographer “had little time to think.”
Snow Monkey and Baby

Jigokudani Yaen-koen, Nagano, Japan located at 2800 feet in a mountainous region of Japan by Toshio Hagiwara was a tougher than life kind of a shot. The animals had endured such harsh surroundings that it was amazing that these animals cooperated.
Bottlenose Dolphins

Captured by Tobias Bernhard in Transvaal, South Africa. These dolphins were captured fishing in exceptionally large surf. The photographer had to capture the shot quickly so he didn’t capsize in his inflatable boat.

Loggerhead Turtle Release

Sea Lions

Photographed by Kevin Schafer in Monterey Bay, California, USA. Sea lions love to use each other as pillows. Here we have a mother and child showing just how comfortable it can be.
Otters

Captured by Tom and Pat Leeson in Prince William Sound, Alaska, USA. “I think we’ve been caught in the act.” The otter pup has just started to eat solid food. By the looks of it, he’s too full to hold himself up.
