Allan Dixon, an Irishman, made headlines this past week after the world discovered his Dr. Doolittle-inspired animal selfies.
Allan Dixon’s Instagram headline holds two adjectives: Adventurer and Animal Whisperer, and they couldn’t be truer. His photos feature a plethora of adorable animals smiling happily for the camera alongside Dixon himself.
His selfies feature animals from around the world that he has met on his adventuring travels, from Ireland to Australia. However, he always exercises caution when trying to bond with the animals in order to gain their trust. He warned that travelers all over the world should never force themselves onto an animal for a selfie, or provoke the animals.
Because he’s become an Internet sensation overnight, the web has flooded his social media accounts with likes and follows to watch as he celebrates the beauty and hilarity waiting in interactions with animals.
His photos truly show the bright side of the animal kingdom, especially highlighting the smiles from all of the creatures he encounters, from quokkas and albino kangaroos in Australia.
