Chiselled and eroded by mother nature some of these ten animal sculptures often require a little imagination to see them clearly, but some of them are such a perfect shape they require no imagination at all! It’s taken centuries for making them into these shapes, but it will only take a moment to see them…

Eagle Rock Formation

Some of these animals in rocks are not easy to find, so I thought it was best to put an image of the animal in the ones that are a little tricky (like this one!)

Dog Rock Formation

I still think it looks more like a seal’s head every time I look at it! But it’s called dog rock and it will just have to be called a dog-shaped rock!

My idea of a nightmare, but there is definitely something very frog-like about these rocks.

With some of these “animals”, it is often a case of point of view (POV) rather than the actual formation of the rocks.

It does definitely look like a lion, but it would have been amazing without its animals shape!

It might be a bit of an odd shape, but there is definitely something camel shaped about it. It’s a strange rock formation anyway, eaten by the sand constantly.

Located here in the UK it is more of an optical illusion than a rock formation shaped like an animal, but it’s still pretty effective!

Looking like a rather sad Elephant who is trying to have a drink in peace is this rather odd rock formation that even seems to have the texture of an Elephant!

Italy is not this first place you might go to to see a Polar Bear, but if you don’t mind them being made from the rock it’s perfect!
