What Do You Get If You Give Zoo Animals A Smartphone?
Because animals need ego boosts too...
It's got to get boring in a zoo if you’re on the wrong side of the glass. So the caged beasts (of varying stature) have found awesome new ways of entertaining themselves.
Staff at Edinburgh Zoo have managed to get penguins, rhinos, wallabies, hippos and binturongs (yeah we had to google them too) involved in the narcissistic culture.
After zookeepers installed cameras into the animal enclosures, a right old snappening occured.
Though as cute as penguins and wallabies are, the koalas were clearly stars of the show, posing enthusiastically as the camera took snaps. Beat that, Kim Kardashian.
Mind you, koalas are naturals in front of the camera – and often they don’t even have to move to stir great excitement among the visitors.
Is it possible that they're overtaking cats as the the darlings of the internet?
