20 Animal Photos That Prove Nature Is a Color Guru

Apparently, the beautiful landscapes and sights nature provides for us to look at and admire aren’t enough, because it has one-upped itself with these animals that are covered in unique fur markings and patterns. They make us wonder if they’re real or if nature has learned how to use Photoshop!

This cat is one of the many painted felines in the book Why Paint Cats? written and illustrated by Burton Silver and Heather Busch. In it, Heather has added different patterns to pictures of cats (not to actual cats) considering it an art form.
