Animals on Instagram That Look Super High

“Like” them? You’ll love them!

by Claire Downs

In a world of incendiary tweets and fire content articles sure to get your blood boiling about current affairs, animal Instagram accounts are a surefire way to make sure your mellow goes un-harshed. They’re fluffy, they’re cute, and they’re the chillest way to drift off into slumber, scrolling your cares away. And, they’re a hell of a lot more relaxing than reading about misspelled tweets or Trump-branded fascism.

Maybe this is just the ganja talking, but did you ever stop to think that some these animals might actually be high? While they probably aren’t—after all, they’ve got large followings to manage—they sure look it! Their little eyes, sleepy demeanor, and their ability to not give a fuck reminds them of someone: us! So, take a break from watching the world burn, and check out these IG accounts of animals looking high AF.

Most capybaras look like they’re at an [8] at all times, but JoeJoe always looks kind of blazed. For a resident of Las Vegas, he’s always got an “above-it-all” demeanor, and like any cool stoner, he’s usually working a side-hustle. Be sure to check out his “capybara and chill” branded hoodies!

Menswear Dog looks like all of your friends who are both stylish and completely stoned. No matter what outfit this pup gets placed in—and there are a lot of them—he always looks a little high and very high fashion. Try not be jealous of his incredibly real designer wardrobe when you check out this account.



Tip: If they see you hiding your treats, have a lengthy conversation until they forget what you're doing. #JuniperTips

Megan and Jamie may be your favorite foxes, but for us, it’s Juniper. And just like us, Juniper can go from maxing and relaxing to pouncing if she thinks she hears something.



#MrBagel isn't too happy because he hasn't gotten a treat in a few days. He's so handsome (Bagel made me type that) 😂

Mr. Bagel is a chinchilla who is way more active than any class pet chinchilla you may have encountered during your youth. Frequently seen posing with a tiny shopping cart or a tiny motorcycle, Mr. Bagel is somehow both chiller and cooler than you.

The Kangaroo Sanctuary is located in Central Australia, but its highly active Instagram account is just a double-tap away. Amazing photos of kangas, big and small, thriving and hopping around make for a very relaxing scroll.



I mean, anything before noon is too early. Am I right? 😒 #pudgethecat

A photo posted by Pudge (@pudgethecat) on

Pudge is a girl cat with a moustache and 600K followers. Pudge is also all of us, all the time, when we over-blaze and can’t handle anything remotely stimulating or we’ll freak out.


At 5.8M followers, the Black Jaguar-White Tiger Foundation is a favorite for many celebrities. Its founder, Eduardo Serio, rescues and rehabilitates big cats (over 200 hundred of them) in his home in Mexico City. While many concerns have been raised about the legitimacy of this foundation and the ethical treatment of the animals there, there’s no harm in having a scroll through Serio’s incredibly chill relationship with these wild animals.


Wally and his rabbit friend, Suki, are angora rabbits. If they seem jumpy, that’s because they thought they just heard the doorbell for the pizza delivery guy. It’s a miracle they get anything done, but their 319K followers demand it!

Tonkey is a Shar-Pei that looks perpetually drowsy. While we doubt he’s awake long enough to bake, he still managed to amass 406K followers.


At 128K followers, this curated account is a classic standby for the chillest animals on Insta. Curated by filmmaker Jeff Hamada, it’s a great round-up of animals ranging from domesticated pets to full-on beasts all getting their comfy on.
