We’ve all got that awkward friend that never comes up well in photos. They are always captured mid-blink, lurking creepily in the background or just gurning drunkenly in your otherwise perfectly curated party shots.

Guess what? Animals can be those guys too. No matter how hard they try to be photogenic, they just can’t quite pull it off. Bored Panda has compiled a list of otherwise majestic and graceful animals, captured in less than flattering moments. If there were an animal Facebook (Snoutbook?) these clumsy creatures would be bugging their buddies to untag them NOW!
