Back in the early days of our older brother publication, Sports Illustrated, the magazine regularly featured not just athletes on the covers, but animals. See, SI wasn't just a magazine about sports, it was for sportsmen, which meant birds, fish, dogs and other wildlife made their way onto the cover. And cute wildlife at that! Really, 1950s Sports Illustrated was Buzzfeed before Buzzfeed was Buzzfeed. So we dug into the archives and found the covers where there were no humans, just animals. We think you'll enjoy.
