Unless you're one of Newt Gingrich's close-to-5,000 Instagram followers, you may not know that the former Speaker of the House, is a "zoo lover."

From porcupines to sloths, anteaters and big cats, Gingrich's trips to the zoo are well-documented on his totally under-followed Instagram page. And oh, the elephants!

Do yourself a favor and scroll through his feed -- Like one caption on a zoo-oriented #tbt: "Every day should be a zoo day."

Ever the romantic, Gingrich spent Valentine's Day at the Museum of Natural History with his wife. Check out the story here:
