The Funniest Wildlife Photos Of 2017 Are Also Pretty Freakin' Adorable

They have our seal of approval.

The animal kingdom has a whole lot of jesters.

The winners of the annual Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards were announced on Thursday, recognizing photos that are “light-hearted, upbeat, possibly unpretentious and mainly about wildlife doing funny things,” the contest website reads.

You know, like a fox using a hole at a golf course as its private bathroom (see below).

The overall winner of the contest received a one-week, all-expenses-paid safari in Kenya, and category winners got a trophy made by men and women with disabilities at the Wonder Workshop in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Not too shabby for snapping an “otter this world” photo.
