You Shall Not Pass! Zookeepers Strike A Pose Inspired By Jurassic World

Given that it’s currently the biggest movie in the world, it’s no surprise that Jurassic World is inspiring people around the world to show some dino-love, especially those in the zookeeping field.

The #JurassicZoo meme has been making the rounds on Twitter and Tumblr, with zookeepers  snapping pictures of themselves striking actor Chris Pratt’s now-famous “stay back” pose from the film. Considering there aren’t any real Velociraptors  to reign in, intrepid zookeepers have had to settle for animals that strike adoration rather than fear into hearts.

From walruses to “veloci-otters”, these zookeepers have definitely been doing their best Chris Pratt impersonations. Perhaps when the casting calls inevitably go out for the sequel, these “auditions” will be considered. Chris Pratt’s definitely noticed!

Here are some of the best poses that have popped up so far:
