Zookeepers re-create Chris Pratt's 'Jurassic World' raptor stance with real beasts

After "Jurassic World's" monstrous box office success has spread into the real life animal preserves and sanctuaries. Zookeepers across the globe are submitting re-creations of Chris Pratt's raptor-charming scene, but with real-life wild creatures!

The hashtags #jurassiczoo and #jurassiczookeeper sprung up seemingly overnight, and Thursday submissions are coming in from parks including Cincinnati Zoo and Toranga Zoo in Australia. Each image is more adorable than the next. This is a seriously addictive way to kill time online, so thanks to all the real-life animal wranglers.
