15 Strange Animals You Can Ride And Look Cool Doing It
Business Insider

You'd probably be shocked at all of the different animals you can ride around the globe. But there are lots of really cool experiences you can have, things you can do, and things you can get on top of and let it move that you wouldn't expect. So without further ado:

1. Camel

I've actually done this one a couple of times. I couldn't quickly find a picture of me, but you'll have to trust me: I looked super cool. Archie the Camel and I are really tight now. You can meet him at the Ark Encounter in northern Kentucky, but camel riding is pretty widespread.

2. Elephant

Look at how nice! I think I would actually die if I got to ride an elephant. Or cry. Maybe both. You can hit them up across Africa and Asia.

3. Donkey

Not exactly strange or glamorous, but it would still be fun. So I guess I should find one somewhere.

4. Giant Tortoise

Doesn't this little guy look like he's having fun? Head on over to Kenya for some of this fun.

5. Lion

Apparently this is a thing in Argentina. I'm gonna need some (read: lots) of workers around, but cool would probably be an understatement for how I look on top of the king of the jungle.

6. Water Buffalo

Turn up in Thailand, Vietnam, and the Philippines.

7. Ostrich

You better hold on for your life on the fastest bird in Australia and in South Africa.

8. Reindeer

Rudolph lives in Finland, guys. I repeat: Rudolph lives in Finland.

9. Giraffe

Once you disembark the water buffalo in South Africa, there'll be a giraffe waiting for you to party on.

10. Dolphin

This is less than riding on the back of an animal and more of being dragged along by an animal, but still fun, so...sign me up in America or Mexico or Australia or lots of other places.

11. Llama

I'm currently (not really) on a plane to South America for the llamas. Bye, gurl.

12. Yak

Head to Asia and hope he doesn't see his ex-girlyak's new bae.

13. Zebra

Hopefully the zebra's in China are striped rather than polka-dotted with an afro.

14. Alligator

America has some strange things they let people ride. But, hey, you do you.

15. Hippopotamus

So this one probably isn't safe anywhere. I mean, can you trust a face like that? But you'd be the coolest if you ever did it and lived to tell the tale.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
