Between school, practices, and games, it's hard to have a social life. But it's even harder to ​show​ the world your great social life!

Unless you're a mascot, that is. 

We've identified five mascots who are experts at putting together the following steps for the perfect social media post:

Step 1: Find the perfect lightning.
Step 2: Take 30 selfies, then delete 29.
Step 3: Choose the perfect filter.
Step 4: Create a clever hashtag -- emojis optional.
Step 5: Post and pray to become Insta-famous!

These fun, furry, and feathery friends know how to have a good time! Whether they are getting the crowd on their feet for a home football game or raising the spirit at a local community event, mascots are always the life of the party.

Check out these five mascots that are living the life and put your social media life to shame!
