One of the funniest photo contests in the world, the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards, is revealing the winners in only a few weeks. Before that, let us sneak peek at some works of the contestants and make a few laughs at the hilarious animals pictured by talented photographers. Like this hip-hopping kangaroo on the photo. Who could believe it is a real shot of a little wild Australian dancer? Looks like he welcomes the next contestants to the party. Oh, maybe he is just practicing Kung Fu?

What are you saying, dude? No way I got that sea weed between my teeth! And how come you are twisting your neck like that? Shall I call an exorcist? This photo work by George Cathcart, from South Carolina has all the chances to win the contest this year. The shot itself was taken in sunny California, so maybe the seals are rehearsing for Hollywood?

I got blinded. Am I a pirate now? This ‘Pirate in Disguise’ photo was taken in Chile by Andrey Vejar. Seems like this owl is hiding, so no one can really recognize it. Now we all know how a conspiracy in a birds’ world looks like! By the way, does anyone know why an owl is a symbol of wisdom?

Oh, my God, dear foxy, what are you doing?! It is a good time to stop right now! No one wants to be a person to pick up the golf ball out of that hole! This putty trained fox, pictured by Douglas Croft in California, is one more probable candidate for this year’s award. For the record, 2016 Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards winner was also a red fox. So, this red tailed golf lover has high chances for a victory!

It’s okay, all done and your task is completed, sir! And now – chill! Life is beautiful here in Madagascar, especially if you are a lemur, living in a natural preserve and hanging out on the tree. Photo was taken by a Japanese photographer Yamamoto Tsuneo.

Never restrict yourself if you want to sing! Doctors say it is good for your heart and nerves. These ‘Three Tenors’ seem quite content with their voices and the way they look. But imagine seeing those seal guys in your human dream one night? Brr, better post it on your enemy’s Facebook page. However, it does not make it less funny. Photo was taken by Roie Galitz on South Georgia Islands in the Atlantic Ocean.

‘I think I lost it’. ‘No way, check it again, mate’. ‘Sorry, bro. The last popcorn has gone. Let’s pray for another crazy tourist around the neighborhood’. The photo was taken in Antarctica by Peter Odeh and has an artistic name ‘Trouble in Parad’ice’,

Wait for me! I am also going to the party! How many humans, looking at this photo and smiling right now, think that the clumsy owl reminds them a bit of themselves? Clumsiness is not a sin, and the clumsy ones are always the cutest ones, too! Even if you are only a little owl, you also deserve to be a part of the gang. Photo by Tibor Kertz, taken in Hungary.

The penguin on the photo was not produced by IKEA, as you might have thought. It is a real bird from Isla Martillo, Argentina, spotted by Beagle Channel. For many people Patagonia remains a secret, however, penguins-transformers may attract more public attention to this mysterious land. The photo is called ‘The Operation System Cannot Run’. And can YOU hold your laugh enjoying the shots?
