Humans are masters of planet Earth, and yet as individuals we let so much get in the way of our ambitions and goals. We have self-doubt, pessimism, fear, anxiety, social obligations, and inertia—none of which bother any of these animals, who live the lives they want to live without fear. Here are 65 (yes, 65!) animals who refused to let their dreams be dreams, and were unafraid to shoot for the moon and land among the stars.
