We all know that selfies have become so much more than a self-portrait. Selfies sometimes get a bad rap when people start to throw in words like, "overshare" and "self absorbed", but regardless, it has become one of the most popular forms of self expression – not just a way to determine what your best angle is.
Recently, selfies of only ourselves have started to become a bit mundane, so we have started to include our pets (and occasionally a wild animal) in our selfies. Well Google and the LA Zoo have taken it one step further in their recent collboration, #Zooglephotos.
Inspired by the new Disney Pixar movie Zootopia, Google Photos has set up motion sensor cameras in various enclosures at the LA zoo. These cameras have been snapping close up selfies of some of our favorite animals.
Prepare to ooh and aww over these fantastic animal selfies!
