Who says you have to be human before you can become a social media influencer? – some animals do much more than you’d imagine. Just the same way you look forward to the content from fashion, fitness, travel, or sports influencers, these animals also have something for you to talk about. However, you must be an animal lover to appreciate those content.

People find many animals interesting because of how adorable they are. These pet animals do incredible things that leave people astonished. They rule the internet too! 

As these animals put up different kinds of content, aided by their owners, on various social media platforms, such as Instagram, TikTok, Twitter, and many others, they build their audience. 

With that audience comes marketing opportunities from various companies, magazines, or shows. That way, it’s a win-win for both parties involved. 

Generally, in influencer marketing, the number of followings is important since it determines an audience. If I have 10,000 followers on Instagram, that means about 5,000 or more receive updates of my posts. 

Now, as you take a look at the 20 best and top pet influencers to follow on social media, here is something you should know: they consist mostly of dogs, cats, monkeys, and squirrels.
