Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is now on Instagram and ready to share his love of animals with the world.

Gingrich's first post to the social networking site was an old photo of the Republican "hanging out with some lemur friends":

Gingrich tweeted about his first Instagram as part of Throwback Thursday. He's not the first politician to participate in the trend -- former President Bill Clinton and Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) have posted their own #tbt photos in recent weeks.
