Monkey Selfie

1

These are the chimp-ly marvellous images captured by a cheeky monkey after turning the tables on a photographer who left his camera unmanned. The inquisitive scamp playfully went to investigate the equipment before becoming fascinated with his own reflection in the lens. And it wasnt long before the crested black macaque hijacked the camera and started snapping away sending award-winning photographer David Slater bananas. David, from Coleford, Gloucestershire, was on a trip to a small national park north of the Indonesian island of Sulawesi when he met the incredibly friendly bunch.

The Frog and Snake

1

The frog and snake. Clinging on with sticky toes, a green tree frog sits bravely on its unlikely friend – a large tree python. Curled around the branches of a small coconut tree, the snake appears relatively undisturbed by the bold passenger that has clambered onto its skin. Grown in captivity together, the pair display no signs of aggression or fear, comfortable with their encounters high up in the leafy branches. Photo enthusiast Fahmi Bhs watched in surprise as the frog slowly climbed along the scales of the metre long snake in a zoo in Jakarta, Indonesia. (Photos by Fahmi Bhs/Solent News/SIPA Press)

Elephant vs Car

1

Two terrified occupants of a Volkswagen Polo found themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time as the giant animal stooped down to rub itself against the vehicle’s roof and bonnet. The incredible scene was captured by field guide and lodge manager Armand Grobler, 21, at Pilanesburg National Park in South Africa. He said: “I was doing ethology – the study of animal behaviour – at the time, so I had a basic understanding of what was going on. The elephant was presumably on Musth, which is a time that an elephant male has an excess amount of testosterone, turning even the calmest Dumbo into a raging bull. Yet even though it was in this condition, it displayed no signs of aggression or frustration and was in a more playful mood”. Elephants frequently use logs, small trees and rocks to relieve an itch or remove parasites – but with the car so close to hand, this was a chance too good to pass up.
