20+ Animals Who Were Too Startled to Meet Other Species

We all make acquaintances, and animals are no exception. And if people can hide their true emotions with polite small talk, animals will not hesitate to let you know if they don’t like you. And God bless those people who were able to capture those hilarious animal interactions on camera!

We at Bright Side are absolutely in love with animals of all kinds, and what we adore even more is to watch what happens when they meet each other and share those priceless pics with you!

1. You scare me, water doggo!

2. When the first meeting didn’t go well:
