Flamingos? Dolphins? Raptors? No big deal, because zookeepers all over the world have found inspiration from ‘Jurassic World.’ Click inside to see their hilarious photos!
Chris Pratt, 35, has inspired a new meme — and it’s all thanks to the brave tenacity of this Jurassic World character, Owen. Zookeepers were not only inspired by his intense raptor face-off in the film, they’ve started to recreate it in a series of hilarious photos that show the real “danger” of being a raptor trainer. Or, you know, just a zookeeper.
One of the craziest scenes in Jurassic World is when a park worker falls into the raptor cage, and Chris Pratt runs inside to save him. As you probably know from the first film, raptors are not exactly a friendly breed of dinosaur. They are meat eaters, and humans are meat, so it’s pretty easy to figure out why running into a cage full of raptors is not exactly a good idea. However, it turns out that Chris’ character, Owen, is a total raptor whisperer, and he controls the situation with lots of firm hand movements and even some snarky commentary.
Apparently he should teach a class on how to control animals, because zookeepers everywhere have found inspiration from this scene. Donning similar vests and lots of khaki, many different park workers have started recreating the Owen vs. raptors scene to achieve Instagram fame. And guess what? It’s totally working.
For starters, check out this brave woman putting these dangerous dolphins in their place. She’s pretty bad-ass, and Owen would be totally proud of her work.

Then we have this guy, who is definitely on control of these man-eating cows. Look at how they cower in his presence!

This zookeeper has got these terrifying seals so scared, they can’t even stand. Okay, maybe that’s just because they don’t have knees. BUT STILL.
Okay, this guy is definitely living on the edge. He faced off with three giant pelicans and survived. A miracle!
Last but not least, we have this American hero, bravely putting himself in the line of walrus fire to save us all from their peril.
