These amazing animal portraits were all taken in a zoo – and the results are unreal.

Bored Panda – Serbian-born photographer Boza Ivanovic started photographing zoo animals after he recovered from a freak motorcycle accident that left him with two cracked vertebrae in his neck. He spent four months confined to his bed and remembering a certain photo he had taken.

“The subject of that photo was a tiger – but more than an image was shot,” Ivanovic told PetaPixel. “I was struck by what jumped out of the picture — a personality, a soul.” Upon his recovery, he returned to zoo photography to take these portraits. “It took hours of observation to get know each creature and then even more time to await the perfect opportunity for my new ‘friend’s’ persona to come shining through.”
