If you're not using your account to follow the cutest animals on Instagram, what are you even doing on Instagram? They may not be the world's most beautiful animals, but animal Instagram stars have something those other species will never have: clout. Despite all the human "models" you see on Instagram, the animal models actually make the platform worthwhile with their clever captions, adorable costumes, and their own animal friends. No one wants to watch you pump iron and inhale an acai bowl when freaking therapy llamas are out here looking like a Dr. Seuss tree. When it comes to Instagram animals, something exists for everyone and every species.
Perhaps you're a diehard dog lover looking for the best pet Instagram accounts to keep your feed full of adorably wiggly tails and pooch smiles. Look no further than Doug the Pug or Menswear Dog who offsets his cuteness with the latest looks for men. If kitty kind is more your cup of tea, Nala the cat and Lil Bub show off a feline flair that every human model wishes they possessed. The pint-sized Instagram stars of the world do not end with members of the canine or kitty kingdoms however, as some adorable pigs, hedgehogs, and even a wallaby show they can take artistic direction. But seriously, anyone who's ever owned a pet knows how well they smize.
