Right before the Olympics of 2012, Ryan Lochte stepped up his game and encouraged fans to cheer for him by debuting a set of sunglass-adorned animal photographs.

These adorable photos featured a number of animals sporting Lochte's novelty sunglasses. They come in a variety of styles, but the most notable of course has the American flag on one lens and Lochte's name on the other.

The animals included in the series are a cat, dog, sheep, panda, orangutan, alpaca, sloth and bunnies. On Mashable they say, "USOC rule prohibits Lochte from selling the red-white-and-blue sunnies during the Olympics, so that means you've got a few weeks to mull which style suits your fancy."

Either way the photos are absolutely adorable.
