It’s fascinating to see the reactions from the different species! Check it out.

You can never tell exactly how an animal is going to react, especially wild ones. There’s been a few times where some crazy critters were incorporated into a good Jackass prank that made the joke even better because of their unpredictable reaction.

Photographer Xavier Hubert Brierre seems to appreciate these reactions and took a visit to Gabon, a country in Africa near the Congo. Xavier, his wife and crew set up mirrors and cameras in several locations to see how animals would react to the sight of their reflection.
