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!

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.

Richard schmidthe, a reflection in a pool of water and mirror are not the same! The mirror reflects everything you can see, it look real, and very accurate. I pool has ripples, is translucent, does not pose a threat because it doesnt look solid. You know what a mirror is and a cave man would freak out for while, just like aborigines reacting to photographs!

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.

Not all animals recognized themselves. They were ready to fight and hit the mirror.

Animals are normally very territorial, that's why they acted up when they saw themselves, they didn't realize it was their on reflection.

What does personality have to do with deductive reasoning and intelligence? I don't get that last sentence...

Haha, I think the chimpanzees figured it out! Lol, it was interesting to see how violent the gorilla was compared to the other monkey species. He was like, "Another male???? Think fast! Oof!" And I love how curious and playful the cats were!
