Visit the Denver Zoo, as seen by Instagram users

Instagram is the latest, and obviously the hippest, photo-sharing app; it allows anyone with a smartphone to play amateur photographer, transforming regular old snapshots into filtered, fogged and color-tinted works of art at the touch of a finger.

Search "Denver" on Statigram, one of the app's web-based viewing platforms, and sift through a variety of local tags like denverartmuseum, denvernuggets and denverairport. This week, we're taking a walk on the wild side and exploring the Denver Zoo through the lens of Instagram users. Page down if you can't get enough of cute animals and even cuter kids.
