Google Sets Up Cameras for Animal Selfies at Los Angeles Zoo

Google and the Los Angeles Zoo have teamed up to give the world some of the most adorable selfies ever. High-tech cameras were set up in animal enclosures at the zoo so up close and personal pictures could be taken of the animals.

The cameras in the animal enclosures have motion sensors that automatically take a photo when an animal comes close to the lens. Animals are very curious so the project has produce many candid close ups of the animals trying to smell or maybe even eat the cameras.
