There’s nothing better than seeing animals do things that are just downright stupid. What’s not to love about a squirrel doing the splits or penguins shouting at a seal?
If that’s what you’re after, then we’ve got a treat for you, as the best entries so far in the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards 2018 has just been released.
The awards, founded by Tom Sullam and Paul Joynson-Hicks MBE, aim to use laughter to raise awareness for wildlife conservation. A panel of judges pores through the images to find the best and funniest each year.
Aside from those mentioned above, the early entries also include a squirrel having a good old sigh to itself, a lemur with a shocked face, and one poor photographer’s camera being dragged off by a fox.
Check out some of best images so far below. And note, the competition is still open to entries until June 30, 2018. So if you’re holding on to a hilarious animal photo, you’d better send it over. The winner will receive a one-week safari in Kenya, with prizes also available for runners-up.
