Since its humble beginnings in 2007, Google Street view has gone on to map out the entire world through photos, making it a perfect place to explore our planet from your desktop. The internet empire has attached its Street View cameras to all means of transport and even mounted them on people, meaning that the most unexpected places and scenes are sometimes captured by the all-seeing eye that is Google.
Some people like to travel vicariously through street view, exploring the remote and dangerous places that people rarely visit in real life. Others like searching for candid and funny scenes captured by the gaze of the camera â€“ a kind of voyeurism of the world as it really is. No posing, no carefully curated images, just people and animals doing their thing in their natural habitats.
Below is a selection of times when animals showed up on Street View, delighting us all with their unexpected and often hilarious presence. Scroll down to check them out for yourself, and let us know what you think in the comments!
