Instagram Animals

Emma Coons, @venkmanthehedgehog

Who knew in 2018 Instagram would be a full on job? Right now on Instagram, hundreds of pets have thousands or even millions of followers. Accounts like @itsdougthepug or @jiffpom highlight pet dogs with cute personalities, tricks, and animal-clothes, but the newest Instagram craze is pet hedgehog accounts.

Of course, for journalism purposes, I had to investigate. If you’d like, you can follow @venkmanthehedgehog to see the results. Through this investigation, I found out just how in-depth and difficult running an animal account can be. To please the masses, I have to keep up posts and make sure their production value is high quality! I even invested in some teeny-tiny Starbucks cups and a tiny champagne bottle. This phenomenon is one I am behind.
