The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards captures hilarious animals

I can not look: a grizzly bear has a bad day

From polar bears waltzing, to a hippopotamus that should have gone to Specsavers and a very alarmed squirrel, these are the most fun animals in the world captured in their natural habitat.

These are the last 41 finalists among thousands of entries, and it is guaranteed that they will make you laugh.

The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards were founded by Tanzanian-based wildlife photographers Tom Sullam and Paul Joynson-Hicks.

The competition works with the Born Free Foundation to highlight a more serious issue: the importance of conserving the beautiful wildlife of our planet.
