Scientists are sharing their favorite photos of wild animal booties using the hashtag #WildBum

Have you ever tried to snap a picture of a gorgeous animal out in the wild?  It's not always easy. Nine times out of 10, that shot turns out blurry or you end up with a random animal booty pic because the sneaky critter decided to turn and run away just as you were about to snag a breathtaking photo.
