Meet the Wildlife Inadvertently Captured By Google's Street View Cameras

As part of National Geographic's new Great Nature project, the magazine has collected more than 100,000 photographs that capture the world's biodiversity—and some of them hail from very unusual sources. Case in point: An album "curated" by Google Maps, which collects wildlife accidentally captured by Google Street View.

Some of these photos are clearly intentional on the part of Google—like the monkeys chilling in the hot springs, below, or the snap of Antarctic penguins. But others are true photobombs, courtesy of a greedy Brighton seagull or a inquisitive frog trundling across the Street View lens. The photos hail from more than six years and millions of miles of Street View driving, so some of these you've likely seen before. But others are more obscure—and either way, it's fun to see them all in one place. [Google Maps on Great Nature]
