Just when you thought Marlon Bundo, Vice President Mike Pence’s bunny, couldn’t get more famous — the rabbit now has an Instagram account.

The account showed up this week with a photo of the bunny on a very regal looking desk. Then came a video of him dancing with the hashtags #firstbundreddays and #botus.

Is this the real, official Marlon Bundo? The IndyStar is still verifying. But it sure looks like the Bunny of the United States.

America got its first glimpse of Pence’s bunny when the family left Indiana to move to Washington, D.C. Pence tweeted a photo of his daughter, Charlotte, holding Marlon Bundo on an U.S. Air Force passenger jet.

Marlon Bundo quickly became an internet sensation, and his Instagram already has more than 850 followers.

As one Instagram commentator put it: “Nice to see a bunny in government!”
