Earlier this year, a video of a dog posing with its owner for a selfie went viral. About a decade ago, the footage would have made it to Ripley's Believe It or Not, but in today's times, nothing is surprising anymore.

Today, animals appear more comfortable with technology than ever; they don't seem to mind gadgets so much. A quick browse on Instagram will give you an idea of how the furry friends enjoy playing interactive games on tablets and mobile phones with their humans. Some don't even mind being filmed and photographed.
Listed below are some of the extremely camera-friendly animals, some of which have confidently posed for portrait photographs. The sphinx cat and the three-legged Chihuahua take the cake. The red carpet-walking vulture and least-interested Giant Panda are some of the other fun-to-photograph animals.
