If 15% of all Internet traffic is cat-related, then how much traffic is generated by cute animals on Instagram specifically? Instagram can’t break down the most-followed animal accounts as a certainty, but pointed us to this list of pets as being among Instagram’s most famous.
The social network’s most famous critters get hundreds of thousands of likes and followers. Many even have their own clothing lines — you can buy T shirts of them.

Pudge the cat is so famous that you can buy nail decals with his face on them.
Mr. Bagel the chinchilla uses his fame for good by reminding his 53,000 followers to adopt new pets from rescue shelters.
Lil Bub is probably one of the Internet's most famous felines. His nearly 400,000 followers obsess over his strange, but adorable, facial expression.
His friend Smoosh is another Instagram sensation. We think we can guess why Smoosh got his name...
