As An Experiment They Placed A Giant Mirror In The Jungle, And Then They Waited

By - 29th June 2017

At some point we’ve all taken amusement from seeing our pets go crazy when they see their reflection in a mirror, but how would a wild animal react?

French photographer Xavier Hubert and his wife traveled to Gabon and placed a number of mirrors throughout the jungle and captured the reactions of a group of chimps.

How the chimps respond is incredible as he seems to perform a type of hostile dance presumably designed to intimidate its fellow primates.

When you see this you’ll soon see why Xavier’s videos have racked up over 50 million views
