Some people are such huge fans of the natural world that they keep seeing adorable animals everywhere they look. One of these people loves animals so much that they photoshop them onto random things and post them on the ‘Animals in Things’ Instagram page. The photo manipulations are striking.

If you love silly animals and all things cute, grab yourself a hot cup of tea or some popcorn, and start scrolling. Upvote your fave animalized things, and let us know what you think of the photoshopper’s work, as well as which interesting photos, in particular, you loved best and why. And if you know any fellow animal fans, send them these cute animals to brighten up their day.

When you’re done with this post, why not check out Bored Panda’s article and interview with Galina Bugaevskaya who photoshops cat faces onto other animals and random objects and created the popular ‘Koty Vezde’ (‘Cats are Everywhere’) Instagram page.

Bored Panda reached out to the founder of ‘Animals in Things’ and here’s what they had to say about their cool photos: "I love animals and I love photo editing. I had a bit of free time recently and so it felt natural for me to use that time productively and finally marry these two things together. @animalsinthings is the product of that!" Scroll down for the full interview.

The creator of the ‘Animals in Things’ Instagram page also has its own subreddit, r/animalsinthings, which they moderate and go by the moniker Staffell. The sub has over 340 fans, while the Instagram page has more than 4,100 followers who are eagerly waiting to see the photoshopper’s newest creations.

Bored Panda wanted to find out Staffell’s favorite animals, but they explained that they "love all animals equally" and can’t pick a favorite. "However, my mum would disown me if I didn't say Ruby the Yorkshire Terrier is undeniably the best creature on the planet."

"I don't exactly remember the first time I started using Photoshop! I learned Adobe Illustrator initially by passively observing my dad around the age of 15. I guess learning Photoshop was just a natural progression from that over the next few years."

Staffell continued: "I’ve only really used Photoshop in a hobby capacity, so it’s been quite a relaxed learning process and at my own pace, rather than a matter of challenges and pressure. There’s a million tutorials on YouTube for any problem you might face."

They also had some helpful advice for those of us who might be new to Photoshop. "Without question, get involved in some Photoshop contests and have fun with it! In particular, I learnt most of my skills via Reddit's /r/photoshopbattles. I'm sure there are others out there."

"I run an escape room and design puzzles for a living," Staffell revealed more about themselves to Bored Panda. "As well as animals and designing, I like exercising, gaming, spicy food, coffee, and absolutely nothing else."

"Whilst the main focus is fun images, I plan to use the account to raise awareness for various animal-related issues that I feel strongly about and feel others should too.

The fact is, ‘Animals in Things’ is making some large waves on the internet, especially on Reddit. For example, the edited picture of Meghan Markle holding an octo-umbrella above Prince Harry got over 105,000 upvotes. Which means that the future for both the Instagram page and the subreddit is looking to be bright and peachy, since there’s a demand for such content.

Now, the vast majority of us love animals and enjoy visiting them in real life and looking at photos of them on the internet (totally not during work or class, nope). But this raises the very serious question of protecting species from going extinct. Otherwise, pictures on the internet are all that we’re going to have left.

Bored Panda reached out to the Endangered Species Coalition to talk about the topic. Mitch Merry, a representative of the Coalition, said that one of the species that is “most at risk now” is the vaquita.

“A great way to help endangered species through raising awareness is supporting legislation that protects them. The PAW and FIN Act is a very important bill that would restore some endangered species protections that the current administration rolled back.”

“Sharing our recent report about pesticides is an easy way to raise awareness too,” Merry said.

Bored Panda was interested to hear whether there are any recent examples of species coming back from the brink of going extinct. “Grizzly bears in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem are a very hopeful story of species coming back from the brink. While they still face threats and are in need of protection, the US has collectively done a remarkable job in bringing these bears back.”

“I would also add that being a conscious consumer is an important individual action people can take to protect species,” Merry said. “Everything from the food we eat to the clothes we buy and wear and the means of transport we choose to get from A to B, has an impact on the world.”

“Making choices about our own actions that can limit that impact is a great first step. Legislation and regulation are very important to protecting endangered species. Letting your senators and representative (and governor and state elected officials) know that you support plants, fish, and wildlife and the laws that protect them is crucial. They need to know that we want wildlife and wild places protected.”

The Endangered Species Coalition explains that we ought to learn about endangered species in our local area first, protecting those animals who are within our reach. The Coalition also notes that “the best way to protect endangered species is to protect the places where they live” and urges people to volunteer at nature centers, wildlife refuges, and elsewhere.
