The human race sometimes takes the title of “masters of disguise” but little do they know, animals are the true masters (or at least they try to be). Camouflage is a great tool, helping animals hide from enemies/predators and catch their prey. This built-in protection is vital to surviving in the wild. But you know what’s even better than camouflage? Costumes.
Some of the animals below have a few of the best costumes we’ve ever seen (#2 is a favorite). Some of them even look like they could actually be a part of the clan they’re pretending to be a part of (especially #12). And some of the other animals below just seem to think they can get away with their disguises without costumes! One thing’s for sure, #1 had me fooled.
#1. Anyone have butter?
#2. Chow chows as pandas!
#3. Heh heh heh. They can’t see me.
#4. Get your mind out of the gutter. These are dogs.
#5. This Hungarian Komondo looks just like a mop.
#6. Act cool.
#7. Looks like an owl.
#8. These alpacas look like sheep with long necks.
#9. These puppies look like croissants.
#10. Looks like a towel but it’s not.

#20. I just love the grain on her fur.
#21. Spots on spots on spots.
#22. Wait: Is there also a black dog on the left?
#23. I honestly don’t know which one is real.
#24. You will be stepped on approximately 7 times per day.
#25. Just a big sack of dog.
#26. I wonder if the dog is absorbent as well.
#27. He’s always wanted a bed that looked exactly like him.
#28. The couch and he have become one.
#29. An army of adorable.
#30. Cute dog. Ugly floor.
#31. Would accidentally vacuum.
#32. This is the kind of situation that ends with the dog getting accidentally sat on.

#34 “Please allow me to cuddle up with a blanket inspired by my fur.”
#35. I never realized how much this dog looks like a towel until he sat with a towel.
#36. Just hanging with her crew.
#37. “Nobody move – they won’t notice me if you don’t move.”
