Flipped Animals
Contest Directions: Most flatfish species (Pleuronectiformes) swim with their left side upward. Their name means "side swimmers" in Greek. It's interesting that as flatfish goes through development stages from eggs to adult species, its face literally migrates from the bottom side of its head to the top side.
Photoshop any animals (except humans) with their faces flipped vertically. Here's a quick example. Don't flip the whole animal head, just flip its face. This contest focuses on photo-realistic entries, so please try not to use artistic filters.

This contest is fueled by the following news: We will talk about how to catch a wild animal. And about those who catch these animals. People hunted rhinoceros even in the quaternary period - then the hunting task was both dangerous as well as noble and indispensable. Myths about gigantic unicorns, dragging three - four elephants, strung on horns in the forests and dales have reached us. The period has vanished and hunting rhinoceros began to resemble more extermination. In Asia and Africa, for example, white colonists nearly exterminated the rhinoceros tribe by the roots. (The last time a mass extermination of rhinoceroses took place was in the Congo in 1963, when a group of mercenaries entered the reserve Garamba and shot nine hundred rhinoceroses taking turns using machine guns!) The first park reserve was founded in the south of the "Black continent" in 1894. Since then, especially after the independence of African countries, a network of reserves have grown; they appeared in the East and Central regions of Africa. Work for professional hunters increased with the increase in reserves. The work was difficult and even dangerous, but more and more necessary for people: after all, it is important to "relocate" these "savanna tanks" to safer places, under supervision. To stop a giant such as a rhinoceros, each member of the group should know the job precisely and to perfection. Few skills were required, with which the hunter copes with a lasso, and his partner an expert awesome driver: 70 km/hr - is not dangerous but 70 km/hr between trees, prickly bushes, acacias and in between the pits, dug by anteaters and hyenas, is tricky. The most important thing is to not allow the rhinoceros to reach dense thickets of bush. There, it certainly will disappear. The all-terrain vehicle approaches the rhinoceros, the hunter stands in the car body and from there throws a lasso over the horned head of the rhinoceros. A new phase of hunting - violent galloping in the rhinoceros team. All the time, the lasso should be stretched and at the same time, ready in any second to slacken, if a rhinoceros, due to fright, suddenly bursts forward or sideways. Softly, without hurrying, similar to how a large fish is brought onto a fishing line, the hunter holds back the run of the four-ton captive, gradually pulling the rhinoceros towards the vehicle (or maybe the vehicle towards the rhinoceros?). As soon as the rhinoceros is exhausted, around ten hunters jump out from the vehicle and tie the "hands and legs" of the exhausted animal and put the swaddled animal into the vehicle. Even the smaller animals - zebras, large antelopes, giraffe are hunted using a lasso. But it does not mean that hunting with a lasso resembles another: the approach depends on the animal and it is self-evident to the hunter. One cannot catch even a hedgehog or porcupine simply with bare hands. Look, for example, how a skilled hunter uses the weaknesses of an ostrich's nature so consistently.
