While I am still struggling to take a clear selfie with my dog, this guy is taking perfect selfies with different species of animals from around the globe. Allan Dixon, a 29-year-old traveler from Dublin, Ireland is the real-life Dr. Dolittle who besides walking and talking with animals also clicks striking Selfies with them. Currently living in Australia, Allan works in the tourism industry and has a special connection with animals.
The animal selfie king has been able to click amazing snapshots with kangaroos, ducks, quokkas, goats, camels and sea lions. Working in the marketing department of the tourism industry, Allan has travelled to the various places such as Canada, Iceland, Norway, Australia and Asia as well. By posting selfies with a variety of exotic creatures on his Instagram account, he has gained a lot of popularity. His followers are always curious to see his next hilarious selfie with a new species of animal.
It was back in 2010 when Allan took his first animal selfie with his dog. However, it was in 2013 in the Australian outback when a selfie with a baby camel got his friends excited. Since then, he has taken more than 40 selfies with different animals, 30 of which have been with different species. According to him, there is something magical about animals that can’t be defined. He wants to share the feeling of great joy which he gets in the presence of animals with his friends through these captured snapshots.
Allan explains that there is no particular method to such animal selfies. The basic thing is that the animal should feel comfortable in your presence and you just have to be patient. While you are in their presence, it can take anywhere between five minutes to three hours to click a selfie. Curious and always friendly quokkas are the favorite animals of Allan Dixon, the animal selfie king.
