There’s nothing better than a good old-fashioned animal cartoon.

A few years ago, my Instagram feed wasn’t quite doing it for me, for whatever reason—maybe I sort of OD’ed on photos of beautiful places, maybe all the photos of beautiful places were making me slightly envious, or maybe I just got bored with it. So I started following cartoonists—a lot of them. My feed gradually transformed, and is now filled with funny cartoons. Sometimes, those cartoons contain wildlife. Here are a few of my favorites:

Ellis Rosen

Jake Thompson

Lonnie Milsap

Joseph Dottino

Tommy Siegel

Amy Hwang

Nathan Bulmer

Andrew Hamm

Lars Kenseth

Amy Kurzweil

Will McPhail
