Taking selfies when we travel seems like the norm nowadays. It is a good way to preserve the wonderful memories of our adventure. Not to mention our friends can enjoy the place we’ve been to as well. This certainly is what 29-year old Allan Dixon from Wicklow, Ireland has in mind when he takes his selfies!

But his selfies are not your ordinary pictures! Dixon has earned himself the reputation of being an “animal whisperer” or the famous movie veterinarian Dr. Dolittle, because of his perfectly-timed shots with a variety of animals. Dixon even shared the secret to his perfect selfies with them. He said all it takes is patience in getting the perfect shots and of course making the animals feel comfortable at first. It is not uncommon for Dixon to talk to them first, pet them or sometimes even bribe them with food.

Check out his amazing selfies with animals from all over the world!
