    23 Animal Selfies For Everyday Situations

    Life in the Serengeti is not so different after all.

    by ,

    To get to know African wildlife better, scientists set up hundreds of motion-sensitive cameras in the Serengeti.

    If something moves in front of the trap, the camera snaps a sequence of up to three pictures. The project, Snapshot Serengeti, has taken more than a million images.

    Their study, published in Scientific Data this week, took 28,000 volunteers to sift through and analyze the images. Here are some of the best selfies.

    1. When you FaceTime your parents but they haven't quite figured out where the camera is on their phone.
