Funny and unexpected reaction of different animals to their own image in a mirror!

The amazing and hilarious video demonstrates how differently wild species perceive their own reflection! This is definitely a footage worth seeing!


A mirror is a common thing for every modern person. But what about animals? How will they react to their own reflection? Will they recognize themselves?

Scientists believe that a mirror test is very important in defining self-consciousness. If a creature can recognize itself in a mirror reflection, it means that it possess this mysterious thing which psychologists call a personality!

I think the difference is being below them with SOME distortion & standing in front of them as an undistorted individual unaffected by there surroundings i.e. Wind, other animals & what ever THEY'RE doing plus you have to take into consideration. The makeup of their eyes. They don't see like we do.

A camera and mirror aren't that expensive. I'm pretty sure if you were a cave man that has only known the wilderness, you would be freaked out initially by encountering a mirror like this.

Used to have a dog who spent hours looking at herself in a mirror, and having done several tests I and a friend are convinced she actually realised it was herself, but she was an exceptional dog, current one takes no notice.

Richard Schmidt -- pools of water are generally dynamic in that they have movement and transparency, thus the reflection isn't at all accurate. Mirrors show a static image, i.e. no movement. But seems like you're saying that the gorilla shouldn't be attacking his reflection because he should recognize himself. I think you are mistaken. Compare it to catching a quick glimpse of yourself in a window ... that can be shocking because the window is not designed to offer an accurate image whereas the mirror is..

Such negative comments I enjoyed the video it's lovely to see the reactions of different animals to their reflection...how can they see themselves in a pool of water that's entirely different they just drink not looking at reflection

That is a really good point. I remember hearing of some cultures encountering cameras for the first time and believing they steal your souls. It was simply because it was unfamiliar and strange... kind of like a mirror to wild animals.
