CINCINNATI – Between close encounters with giraffes, a rare Sumatran Rhino soon leaving for Indonesia and lots of adorable baby animals to ogle, the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden offers a lot of highly photographable moments.
Understandably, zoo visitors feel the need to share these important things with the world. That desire has caused the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden to become the most Instagrammed location in Ohio, according to travel website Busbud.
Kelli, the adventurous & playful red panda cub, stands up to mom Bailey while exploring his outdoor exhibit. Most active at dawn and dusk, these frosty-faced fur balls are usually found sleeping the day away. Red pandas are native to mountainous forests found in south and southeast Asia, and can live up to 14 years. They are listed as a vulnerable species at risk. #CloseEnoughToCare #RedPanda #ZooBabies #InstaZoo #SavingSpecies #Conservation
