Woman Travels The World To Take Selfies With Exotic Rescue Animals

Kristin shares a Chicago home with a dog, a rabbit, two cats, a husband, and an 11-year-old daughter.

When traveling, are you more likely to take photos of places, people, or animals? I admit that if there are animals around, they always take picture priority for me. And if I can combine a place with an animal, all the better!

Laura Exposito seems to be on the same page as me when it comes to her selfies. The 31-year-old volunteered at Australia’s Horizons Kangaroo Sanctuary in Agnes Water, Queensland, and Farm Animal Rescue, a vegan farm in Brisbane for mistreated animals and those saved from the slaughterhouse.

While volunteering, she took the most amazing selfies with the resident animals, perfectly mirroring their poses and expressions.

Laura crouched with the kangaroos, ogled with owls, smiled with sheep, fed a koala bear, and gave a big old pig a belly rub. It took around a hundred individual shots and up to an hour to get each animal to pose perfectly. She says that animals are like children, and each selfie took a lot of patience. The most troublesome animal, an alpaca, nearly spit on her!

The effort was worth it because each photo magically captures the animal’s personality, as well as Laura’s own natural love and affinity for all life — not to mention they are all super adorable and make me want to go take a quick selfie with my dog!
