Google's been on a roll adding AR experiences to Search this year, including tons of animals. It sounds like we can anticipate 27 more arrivals soon. That includes plenty of dog and cat breeds, but also more exotic animals like the hippo, fennec fox, and red panda, as well a the mythological unicorn.

The new animals originally landed last year, but they've exploded in popularity this year — probably as a result of the pandemic lockdown boredom, but at least partly from the wild popularity of Netflix's Tiger King series.
