Aristotle once observed that "man is by nature a political animal." Art Director Jennifer Skupin takes this age-old profundity quite literally, compiling images of American presidents and the animals which they most resemble. It turns out that Fillmore is a mallard, Grant is a grizzly and Obama a llama. For all those hungry for the ultimate series in presidential non-human doppelgangers, American Zoo is the feast you've been awaiting.
