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.

Busbud analyzed information from TripAdvisor and Instagram to determine the most popular locations for Instagram posts in every state across the country, as well as every Canadian province.

Across the U.S., zoos were only the ninth most Instagrammed locations, following locations like parks, vineyards and historic sites.

The Cincinnati Zoo was one of just five across the country to be its state’s most Instagrammed spot.
