Seeing our own reflection is one of the most amazing things in the world. We, as humans may not cherish this mesmerizing moment as we see ourselves on mirrors every single day. But how would animals, who have never seen their reflection in mirror react to this phenomenon? To solve this curiosity, innovative French photographer Xavier Huber-Brierre and his wife travelled all the way to Gabon and set up a mirror in several locations where animals could easily notice it. And the results to this experiment are just stunning!
Xavier and his wife set up the mirror on the roads in order to capture animals walking by. They put the cameras to witness the exciting results of this experiment. Throughout the experiment, they found that almost all of the animals were fascinated by the reflection in the mirror. Most of the animals actually thought it was another animal and tended to attack them. Some of them were so curious about the reflection that they stayed there for very long time.
This giant mirror experiment in the wild is really fascinating. Watch this video below and share your thoughts about it through your comments.
