Aston­ish­ment! Shock! We are all tak­en by sur­prise some­times. And obvi­ous­ly, peo­ple are not the only ones who are sub­ject to this feel­ing. And of course, as in every­thing, ani­mals get it much fun­nier, and some­times even fun­nier. Per­haps not all the pho­tos below show ani­mals with this par­tic­u­lar expres­sion, maybe it just looks like shock, nev­er­the­less, it looks very fun­ny.

This macaque that ate the crab froze with such an expres­sion, prob­a­bly she was shocked by some­thing. Although it is said that mon­keys are not our ances­tors, our emo­tions and sim­i­lar­i­ties in some things are some­times sur­pris­ing, so the fact that this mon­key was some­how sur­prised or shocked is more like­ly. She may have just learned that her species is often used in med­ical exper­i­ments.

There are good sur­pris­es and bad sur­pris­es. The sur­prise on this squir­rel’s face seems to be con­nect­ed with Christ­mas morn­ing, when San­ta Claus’s gift exceed­ed all expec­ta­tions. Now that’s one hap­py lit­tle rodent. It is also worth con­sid­er­ing the fact that squir­rels are very suc­cess­ful ani­mals, because they live almost every­where, with the excep­tion of Aus­tralia.

How often do car­toon char­ac­ters get their hair on end? Well, this bird has such a view all the time. This is a strange but beau­ti­ful bird that lives in the swamps of Africa. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, this is also the tar­get of the black mar­ket for wildlife.

Per­haps this young sheep was spy­ing on some­one, but sud­den­ly she saw that she was being pho­tographed from the oth­er side, hence the sur­prise)

The look of this baboon speaks more elo­quent­ly than any words. We can’t say that baboons are gos­sips, but they do live in numer­ous soci­eties and spend a lot of time inter­act­ing with each oth­er.

Holy cow! This black and white cow that froze in some shock­ing state with grass in her mouth, she even stopped chew­ing it. What did she see?

How dif­fi­cult it was to sur­prise the lion, but most like­ly it was a bad idea. Lions pur­sue their prey to the last.

Big big eyes and an open mouth — this is how the face should look when you are sur­prised by some­thing.

It’s hard to say what’s more adorable about this mon­key: the look of com­plete sur­prise on his face, or the hair that looks like a wig on his head. I won­der what inspired this mon­key to have such an emo­tion, maybe he just saw a fun­ny look­ing human.

Sur­prise can hit us at any time — even when we’re just hang­ing out in a tree while lazi­ly eat­ing like this maned lemur.

When it comes to look­ing sur­prised, it’s hard to com­pete with owls. Their huge eyes sug­gest that they are con­stant­ly amazed by this world. Some peo­ple mis­tak­en­ly think that owls don’t see well in bright light. How­ev­er, they also see well, and some species see bet­ter dur­ing the day than humans.

It would be easy to assume that the gold­fish’s sur­prised expres­sion has some­thing to do with their leg­endary short mem­o­ries. After all, if you kept for­get­ting every­thing, every­thing would be a sur­prise. How­ev­er, in real­i­ty, the mem­o­ries of the gold­fish are not so bad. They can dif­fer­en­ti­ate col­ors and even learn the actions that their own­ers are doing. So maybe they’re just amazed at how lit­tle
we know about them.
