Great animal pictures

My favourite of BuzzFeed’s 50 Best Animal Photos of 2011

A macaque monkey in Indonesia took a camera from a wildlife photographer before snapping himself in a variety of poses. The macaque monkey is extremely rare and critically endangered making these pictures all the more special.

An African spurred tortoise with two heads and five legs is displayed in Slovakia.

Iris licks her 7-week-old cub during one of their first walks in an open-air cage at the Royev Ruchey zoo in Russia’s Siberian city of Krasnoyarsk.

Two-year-old chimpanzee “Do Do” feeds milk to “Aorn”, a 60-day-old tiger cub.

A Kamchatka Brown Bear and one of her two three-month-old cubs share a kiss in Hamburg, Germany.

This little orange seal has been ostracized by his fellows for being ginger. Also, unfortunately, he is almost blind. He was found waiting for his mother under a log on Tyuleniy Island in Russia. He was picked up and taken by staff at a dolphinarium to keep him from anymore emotional stress. Good news though, the seal is doing much better. Now named Nafanya – after a lookalike Soviet cartoon character – the seal was given VIP treatment and has now moved into a plush new home at the country’s leading aquarium.
