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.
