Most of us see our reflection at least once a day. It’s not something we often think about, and take it for granted.

But have you ever gone days, maybe even weeks, without seeing yourself? If you have, you’ll understand the feeling of seeing your face again after days and how jarring it can be.

A large mirror is placed in the jungle and camera set up to record the reaction of animals that come across it. Having never seen themselves nor understanding the concept of reflection, you can see that their minds are clearly blown. And it’s awesome.
