Wildlife photography is a world of its own. In their endeavour of staking out animals that normal people would be terrified to approach, photographers have managed to get some wonderful snaps of animals acting quite human in some cases.

The best photographs are lauded in the annual Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards, the winner of which will be announced on 13 November. For now, we have the finalists' work and some of these photographs are truly golden.

Ranging from a lion holding a sign pointing visitors to a specific area or a penguin squaring up to a seal, some of these photographs are dying to be captioned. Shocked otters and fish, cute quokkas and more await you in the below photo gallery.

Let us know your favourite and any captions that come to mind! At any rate, the judges face a difficult decision.
