SAN ANTONIO - A competition referred to as the #CuteAnimalTweetOff has zoos nationwide competing to see who has the cutest animals.
The Smithsonian’s National Zoo sent out a news release to alert the public that it added a grey seal pup to the family.
A Virginia resident tweeted a photo of the seal to the Virginia Aquarium, saying, “Your move,” and the tweets continued from there.
