Quite a few creatures have wound up on our trains over the years. In a new digital photo project called Animetro, photographers Clarisse Rebotier and Thomas Subtil imagine an even wilder Paris Metro, roaming with animals from the savanna.

Check out a selection below. The full series is on view at the Millesime Gallery in Paris until April 17.
