The hairy Movember craze is hitting the animal world! While men are proudly growing moustaches this November in support of men’s health (some growers more successful than others), we’ve spotted quite a few animals working on their ‘staches, as well.
The Nature Conservancy works across the world to help protect the habitat that many of these species need to survive — because we wouldn’t want you to live in a world without beautiful faces like theirs.
Here are 10 animals that are working on their moustache growth this month. Which one is your favorite?
