This is What Happens When You Place a Big Mirror in Front of Wild Jungle Animals


Have you ever stopped to wonder what a jungle animal would think if it was able to see itself? Typically, they only see their prey, family, enemies, and other animals around them.

In this video, a very durable mirror was set up in the middle of a jungle with a hidden camera place in such a way to catch the reactions of wild animals that see themselves in the mirror.

The animals range from gorillas to monkeys to large cats to elephants. Most of the animals are confused about what they're actually seeing, while others get violent thinking that an enemy is right in front of them and challenging their dominance.

Nevertheless, the reactions are both interesting and hilarious and are worth the watch.
