What do you think of, when you picture animal print undies? Maybe a go-go dancer or a wild ex? The Underwear Expert, for one, certainly doesn't picture pairs that take on actual wildlife fur and feathers in their prints - but there are more animal prints out there in the underwear world than just the ones you may see in Magic Mike XXL. Some pairs have patterns and prints featuring the actual animals versus the animals' stripes or spots - a few even utilize a bold graphic print for a unique, asymmetrical look.

In our exclusive animal prints photoshoot, we highlight 11 pairs of animal print underthings. The Smuggling Duds Cattled Boxer, which you may remember from our April Fool's shoot, is our personal favorite. The pink-accented cow print is, by far, the most "fun" pair.

Another cute look is Male Power's Animal Wonder Thong. It's interactive, too - just try and find the hidden leopard face in the thong!

Funky Trunks and Mitch Dowd have more realistic animal looks. The Funky Trunks Bad Boy Boxer includes a pop-art design that features a bulldog wearing a cop's hat. Mitch Dowd's Stripe Loose Fit Knit Boxer has a cartoon monkey on a light blue background.

Croota's Tiger Contrast Boxer Brief features a white tiger that wraps around the right leg all the way over to the rear. The boxer brief has a tiny kangaroo in the front, which pays homage to Croota's Australian roots. We can't resist a bit of nostalgia!

What kind of animal would you like featured on your underwear? Do any of these looks make you feel like a sexy beast? Let us know!
