Many people appreciate animal-themed photography because it not only provides us with a glimpse of rare and exotic creatures, but it also helps us document the lives of our beloved pets. Whether it is a picture of a newborn pooch or a portrait of a near-extinct species, animal-inspired photos provide us with stunning images of the world's most beautiful creatures.

Some of the most interesting types of animal portraits are those that showcase rare and unusual species. From majestic Bengal tigers to exotic Amazonian amphibians, photographers have managed to capture stunning images of some of the world’s most elusive creatures.

Of course, there is also a great wealth of animal-themed photography that highlights the creatures that we interact with on a daily basis. Many photographers choose to photograph cats and dogs because of the special role these furry creatures play in our lives. Even unusual pets such as hedgehogs, guinea pigs and rodents have become the subjects of stunning and sentimental photography.
