April 8th is Zoo Lover’s Day, and in celebration we’ve rounded up some of our favorite zoos on Instagram! The term “zoo” was first used as an abbreviated way to describe the Gardens and Menagerie of the Zoological Society of London, also known as the London Zoo, which opened for scientific study in 1828 and to the public in 1847.

Be sure to follow a few of the many zoological parks around the world sharing photographs of newborn animals, daily feedings, playtime with the animals, as well as fascinating facts about wildlife.
