Photo Contest Honors Animals Who Just Can’t Get Their S**t Together

Wild animals -- they're just like us!

Wildlife is majestic. Beautiful. Awe-inspiring.

Most of the time.

Sometimes, though, nature is just plain ridiculous, and luckily for us, we have photographers to prove it.

This is the first year of the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards, a Tanzania-based competition meant to honor the world’s funniest wild animal photos. The grand prize winner gets a one-week photographic safari vacation in Tanzania, while first and second runners-up are awarded with fancy cameras.

The winners were announced last month, but the photos are resurfacing online this week, and we know you're up for crazy animal antics anytime.
