We all know we need to spend less time looking in the mirror, less time fussing over our appearance, our muffin tops and any other ‘flaws’ we deem less than desirable. But, mirrors aren’t all bad! Just ask French photographer, Xavier Hubert Brierre who decided to take a trip to Gabon and put up mirrors in the wild and capture animals’ reactions to them. The results are beyond fascinating!

Watch as various animals react in their own unique way to this ‘magical’ surface – from uncertainty to playful and even hostility you’ll see it all!
