About @chillwildlife

One of the “16 Funniest Instagram Accounts” according to Vogue, @chillwildlife features “v chill animals” in their funniest and most human moments. Japanese-Canadian artist Jeff Hamada plies 130K+ Instagram followers with insanely cute pics and clips like a cat-on-cat massage, or a pug fully maxing and relaxing in a pool floaty. With submissions often coming in from other users via #chillwildlife, the community—and the chillness—are growing exponentially. If you like animals (duh), like to laugh (who doesn’t?), and like the idea of a dog trying to eat cheeseballs upside-down, then @chillwildlife is your new best friend.
