Zookeepers are posting pictures of themselves 'Prattkeeping,' inspired by Jurassic World


H/T to Tumblr user feminerds, who posted about her Zoo Keeper bestie posing with walruses in what is sure to be the best viral trend of summer 2015:

The post is going viral (with over 80,000 likes and reblogs), and more people posting their version of the pose by the hour:

The stop-right-there-you-chickens pose.

The rogue ostrich calming technique.

Freeze flamingos! There’s a new sheriff in town.

These giraffes seem to be minding their own business…

The ‘FAO Schwarz is closing’ unicorn pose.

She let them know she’s the real alpha dolphin …

These emus are NOT messing around.


And those camels, too.

Ducks are apparently just as trainable as chickens. Who knew?
In the movie, Pratt is forced to calm a group of raptors by asserting his dominance. The species above don’t appear too ferocious — yet. Hopefully these images keep rolling in and we can see some tigers or elephants get in on the fun.
