The elephants playing in the river at the Elephant Orphanage
At the time I was travelling from Colombo to Kandy in Sri Lanka, I didn't even know the Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage existed. I saw a few signs and my driver asked if I wanted to stop by; I love elephants so of course I did. Not sure what to expect, I was pleasantly surprised to find it wasn't really as much of a zoo-type facility as I presumed. For the 2 hours I was there the elephants (most of them) were free to roam around and play in the river as they pleased.

Maybe the ugliest goat I've ever seen, I had a soft spot for this guy at the Tiger Temple in Thailand
In my travels I've come across a lot of funny looking animals, and I always take pictures when I do. I don't know what it is, but I love photographing animals and catching them in that awkward moment of curiosity. I find them hilarious, their similarities to humans, and their differences. Unfortunately around the world a lot of these animals have lived in less than desirable conditions, but I do my best to give them a bit of food or love whenever possible. This is a collection of some of the funniest animals I've come across throughout my world travels.
