21 Powerful Pictures That Capture Animals And Their Mysterious Emotions

Updated on January 12th, 2018

The link between humans and animals may be closer than we may have realised. Research by Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) has found that our furry relatives may share many of the same emotions that humans experience in everyday life.

Animals respond to the environment much as humans do, reacting emotionally to others and even becoming stressed and anxious in times of danger. Studies have found that there are definite behavioural similarities in emotional expression between animals and humans.

Interestingly, many of us see animals as human beings’ equals, so it’s only natural that some photographers see them this way as well.

Let’s start exploring images captured to showcase the ‘humanism’ of endangered species and in doing so help bring to the fore the plight these animals face in the wild.
