HOUSTON – What started as a photo shared on social media became a national movement for zoos all over the country, including Galveston’s Moody Gardens.
“We heard #ZooGlamourPhotos are totally rad right now,” Moody Gardens wrote on Facebook.
The photos were taken in a color-combined, retro-style laser background that resembles 1980s photos.
The trend started by a photo of a jaguar posing as if they were taking a yearbook photo at a San Antonio Zoo. With the retro background added, the photo went viral on Twitter, which encouraged other zoos to post their own #ZooGlamourShots on social media.
