You guys, this is the best animal news of 2013. No, we haven't saved the ice caps for polar bears. No, this is not about another cat-and-space-themed Tumblr. Why do you have to mention that? Now my animal news sounds anticlimactic! Whatever, I'll tell you it anyway. Behold: An eagle grabbed a camera and took selfies of itself.
Rangers say a young sea eagle snatched up a wildlife camera from a river bank in Australia and carried it aloft to a new location about 70 miles away. The camera kept running and magic happened. Rangers edited the footage into a greatest hits reel complete with self-important selfies. Most remarkable, it appears the eagle resisted the urge to form duck lips or make sparrow face. Since the eagle cannot speak or write, I have provided captions for it.
What do you think your pets would say if they could do selfies?
