You can find humour in almost everything, even in what seems to be a fierce jungle.
Finalists of the annual Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards are finally out and it'll get you cracking. From a laughing snake, to an angry bird, and to what seems to be a group of singing fish this year's entry truly has it all.
The competition recently announced that it has already shortlisted 42 finalists from over 7,000 sent entries.
Here are some of the finalists of this year's parade of wildlife comedy:

The Comedy Wildlife Photography was founded in 2015 with the goal of promoting wildlife conservation through a positive medium such as humour.
"The deluge of images of animals and habitats in peril can be hard to digest. The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards' content accesses our empathy by showing how alike we really are. You don't need to cover your eyes or look away. We want our viewers to share our enjoyment of nature and take the time to recognise its value," the global photography competition wrote on its website.
The winning photo of 2020 by Australian photographer Mark Fitzpatrick was also one that quickly went viral as it showed a photo "Terry the Turtle flipping the bird" in front of the camera.
