Zoos Around The Nation Are Having A No Holds Barred #CuteAnimalTweetOff

It started out innocent enough... On January 25th, the National Zoo in Washington, DC tweeted a picture welcoming a newborn gray seal pup who was born there four days earlier...

However, things took a turn for the worse once the Virginia Aquarium got a hold of the news and decided to one up the National Zoo with their own cute animals...

From there, the Twitter beef was officially on and the #cutanimaltweetoff had begun...

Shortly there after, other zoos and aquariums took notice to the National Zoo and Virginia Aquarium's beef and decided to join in and consequently launched what was an innocent cute-off into a full blown national affair...

Not that we were really complaining about all this cuteness overload... With all the negativity flying around, this was an adorable change of pace...
