Funny photos of wild animals staring at cameras

Tigers, bears, mongooses, bonnet macaques….  some curious, some hungry, some shocked….
These are from camera traps set up in various forests of south India.

Eye of the tiger! See here for a comic similar to this.

This lion tailed macaque probably feels very vulnerable on the ground, since he is mostly up in the trees 30+m up.

You can clearly see why monkeys are our close relatives! This bonnet macaque spent a long time examining the camera and also left a little present on top (dont ask me what).
