There are many people around the world who fancy themselves animal lovers, and even more who would love to pet absolutely every fuzzball they come across, their own safety be d**ned.
Allan Dixon, though – dubbed the “animal whisperer” – actually does get close to the animals who seem to love him, and he has the selfies to prove it.
Here are 15 that are totally adorable, and hard to believe to boot!
15. Those are two happy bois.
You love to see it.
14. That’s a quokka.
And I want one, whether it smiles or not.
13. Who has not wanted to hug a koala?
No matter whether or not they might kill you for it.
12. This guy is obviously the GOAT.
This goat is too much for words. That smile!
11. Alpacas are so adorably dopey.
I feel like they totally lean into it, too.
10. I’m scared of the big boi kangaroos.
I bet Allan would still get him to take a selfie.
9. Yep, I was right.
This guy is brave and adorable.
8. We all know that parrots are attention hogs.
They’re too pretty not to know it.
7. He is not giving up that treat.
How dare you try to take it from him, Sir.
6. Baby kangaroo omg.
What was it doing out of its pouch!?
5. He’s braver than I am.
I know it’s just a leather lump, but it looks scary!
4. Sweet puppers.
That big ol’ smile just melts your heart.
3. Cutest puppy ever?
I think I could make a case.
2. You’ve gotta pamper the kitties.
You know that’s the way to their heart.
1. What a perfect little pose.
Sea lions seem so agreeable.
I want to live this guy’s life, if only for a day or two.
These animals are so pure, and they must recognize something of the same in this guy’s soul, don’t you think?
