If you consult the Chinese lunar calendar, 2013 was supposed to be the year of the snake. Now if you ask the internet, it'll tell you this year belonged to the photobombing llama.

It didn't matter if you were at award ceremonies or weddings this year. So long as there were cameras, you could count on a photobomb. Not even travel photographers could escape them, with fish, giraffes and even Kevin Spacey getting in on the action in 2013.

Looking back at the last 12 months, The Huffington Post Canada hand-picked the 13 defining travel photobombs of the year for your enjoyment. If you're a shutterbug, this will be a source of aggravation. But for everyone else, break out the champagne and cheers to another year of hilarity.

    But 2013 wasn't exclusive to animals bombing your travel photos. You can thank Kevin Spacey for that. The "House of Cards" star was in Boston and decided to photobomb Christina Sander, a tourist posing by George Washington monument. How do you know it was a photobomb? Well if Kevin Spacey yells "this is a photobomb,” it's probably a photobomb.

    Llamas are notorious photobombers but one should never underestimate their distant relative, the guanacos. Ask Richard Efvans and he'll tell you all about it.

    No trip to Peru is complete without a trek up Machu Picchu and no good photo op is without a llama photobomb.
