‘Animals Riding Animals’ is an inspiring collection of athletic achievement
You know what’s inspiring? Animals. Each one brings its own talent to the world. From running fast like a cheetah to the graceful strength of a draft horse, there is something to admire in each member of the animal kingdom. But you know what’s REALLY impressive? Animals RIDING ON OTHER ANIMALS.
That’s right. I said it. And no, not riding in that way, you sicko. Riding in a friendly way. In a way that makes you question if unicorns are real since this level of athleticism is so out of this world, other crazy things must exist as well.
Animals riding on other animals is not only a wonderful thing, but it will inspire you to achieve greatness in your own life. And now that we have that established, you should know that there is a Tumblr that has carefully curated as many photos and GIFs of these delightful occurrences as possible, and it’s a beautiful thing.
Check out some of the highlights, rated by yours truly for difficulty of the rider’s achievement. Prepare to be inspired to run faster, jump higher, and take more risks with balancing on top of things.
