There is only one thing that everyone, no matter where they’re from, can agree on. When animals act like humans, hilarity ensues.
When humans act like animals it can also be pretty funny…if not a bit weird.
Last year we brought you the finalists, and then the winners, of the 2017 Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards.
Now, back by popular demand, this year’s funniest animals.
Here’s Forbes with some waffle before we go to the big screen:
There is the human tendency to anthropomorphize [sic] the behavior of animals, which can produce really hilarious moments to be captured by lucky, on-the-spot photographers.
Birds having a martial dispute. Dancing deer. A polar bear photographer. All are among the comic scenes that made it to the list of 41 finalists.
Here, for your enjoyment, are 10 of our favourites:
Peek-a-boo, United States – Photo: Shane Keena

Sponsored by the Born Free Foundation dedicated to the conservation of the planet’s wildlife, the contest has opened a new category this year, the Affinity People’s Choice Award, which invites members of the public to choose their favorite photograph, with an iPad for the winner.
