Nothing Beats Firsts! Just Ask These 15 Animals Whose Minds Are Blown.

cat and dog with surprised faces

There are some people whose every thought is broadcast right on their faces for all the world to see, but did you know the same can be said of pets?

Animals have incredibly expressive faces, and there are moments when we can read their thoughts as clearly as reading a book. From irriation to surprise, every raised eyebrow or curled lip has meaning, for those who choose to find it. When an animal experiences something brand new for the first time, you can see their fear, delight, and confusion right on their little faces.
