I know what the teens like and they like TikTok. At least, that’s what I tell myself while I spend hours scrolling through the app. I might be wasting my life away learning the moves to dances I will only attempt alone in my bathroom or laughing out loud to riffs on the same joke, but at least I’m not aging out of the zeitgeist. Can I define the term “e-boy”? No! But I can use the word in a sentence sometimes.

If you’re looking for something to distract you while you’re on the toilet, something to make you laugh in between emails or something to fill the emptiness in your heart, step into my 100% hand selected, highly curated, TikTok movie theatre. Maybe this is your first video, maybe this is your 69th, either way, take my hand and dive headfirst into the world of TikTok. Today, we’re looking at the Internet’s favorite genre, animal videos.

TikTok isn’t reinventing the wheel with this one, they’re just making it a little bit weirder. If you want to get an older family member or a deeply out of touch friend into TikTok, this is the place to start. Everyone loves a good puppy. (There are no puppies in the following videos.)

I’d like to start off with one of my personal favorites:

Here’s another video targeted to my personal interests:

Animals love a good TikTok dance:

Some people are really out there living that Studio Ghibli life:

@mrtndamexHello lil fur friends! #cats #fyp #foryoupage #perte #Videoleap♬ Play Date – Melanie Martinez

While other people are out there living that Stardew Valley life:

Speaking of ducks, there are so many birds on TikTok. Bird people love TikTok:

@birdtailsTango out there all grown up making friends with the local wildlife 😩😭 #bird #sowholesome #tiktokpets♬ original sound – birdtails

There are slightly less lizard people (but they’re out there):

Zoo keepers are the people to follow for that HQ niche content:

Same with farmers:

Not all animals are friendly:

Some of them really want to bite you:

With love:

@tonys_tails_and_scalesFriday mornings with Rawlings! 🦊 #fox #wildlife #ambassador #redfox #tiktok #fyp #foryoupage♬ original sound – smal_pup

On the other hand, often times they’re more afraid of us than we’re afraid of them:

@kameron_nelson01#xyzcba♬ original sound – kameron_nelson01

And they should be:

@julesyanos♬ Love Songs – Kaash Paige

But it all works out regardless:

@ratflembut making this video hard to take was her fault♬ original sound – rhysy_w

Until next time, don’t forget:
