Comedy Wildlife Photography just announced their 2015 competition winners, and a photo of an adorable rodent took the prize!

The message behind the silly photos that are entered into these competitions is to draw attention to animal conservation.

A laughing seal, hugging frogs and a startled hippo were among the most hilarious finalists of The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards, but it was a photo of a racing rodent by Austrian photographer Julian Rad (left) that took top prize in the inaugural competition in London in 2015. It’s easy to see why judges had a hard time whittling down to the top 45 finalists announced in Oct. 2015 from among the 1,502 entries the competition received from 52 countries. The first-ever comedy photo awards for animals in the wild was founded by wildlife photographer Paul Joynson-Hicks. What are your favorite images?

I won't say too much here, because the pictures speak for themselves.

OMG These are hilarious. How in the world can that rodent run with cheeks that full? And damn, that poor water buffalo(?). That's a bad day, even if he doesn't realize it.

Thank you for sharing these.

Going through the website, OMG the meme's to be created!!!!

Meerkcat facepalm, when all other facepalms just aren't enough.
