Animal Stare’s: Inception

I recently posted on an extreme case of biocentric belief, where a Swiss woman tried to live off sunlight alone and tragically died. Here is a more comical approach, bottom up rather than top down, of animals following the Inception theme, giving some pretty creepy stares. For a more detailed development:

“Tourism That Makes A Difference”
