He's the Dr. Doolittle of selfies!
29-year-old Allan Dixon is a self proclaimed animal whisperer.
And if his Instagram account is any indicator, he's absolutely right.
The Ireland native works in tourism and travels all over the world.
He's travelled to Canada, Iceland, Norway, across Asia, and throughout Australia.
And along his way, he snaps selfies like many of us do.
But unlike the rest of us, he is a master at getting animals to accompany him.
His extensive travels in Australia have provided some classic kangaroo shots.
Along with the world's most adorable (and clearly affectionate) animals, Quokkas.

"People's reactions to these photos were rising exponentially - after three photos, it was a given I should continue the trend."
Allan has amassed a following of 72,000 on Instagram for his hilarious animal selfies.
He's always loved animals, "I feel a great joy in [animals's] presence, so much that I want to share this feeling with my friends, trying to capture photos that highlight how happy animals are along with the feelings they bring."
As for his selfie strategy, Allan says he has to make sure the animal is comfortable first.
“Let them sniff you, make sure you’re looking at the camera and click away.”
