Imagine seeing yourself in the mirror for the first time. How would you react to the person staring back at you? What would you even think?

French photographer, Xavier Brierre, decided to test that very scenario throughout the animal kingdom.

Brierre and his team set up large mirrors and hidden cameras in several locations throughout Gabon to see what animals would do when they happened upon their own reflection.

Some animals showed dominance, some showed fear, and some even showed the slightest touch of vanity.

Watch the video to see the moments when the animals discover themselves. You won't be able to turn away.

Which is your favorite animal reaction?
