The #cuteanimaltweetoff is everything

WASHINGTON (WCMH) — Zoos throughout the world are throwing it down on Twitter.

After the Smithsonian’s National Zoo tweeted a picture of a 4-day-old baby seal, the game was on.

A woman from Virginia challenged the Virginia Aquarium, sparking a game of one-upmanship between the two facilities.

It wasn’t long before other zoos joined in, including Ohio’s own Columbus Zoo and Aquarium. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
