Animal Magic

Happy animal snaps have gone viral on social media after American zoos posted funny reviews of their animals.

Using the hashtag #rateaspecies zoos and aquariums left their comical thoughts under snaps of their favorites. All the posts mimicked Amazon product reviews with each animal rated out of five stars and accompanied with a brief description.

The trend started with Oregon Zoo rating an otter: “Overall very good first impressions. Sturdy built, totally winter-ready and waterproof. Only comes in brown but that’s actually a plus for me.”

The trend soon spread to other aquariums and zoos across the country.

Tennessee Aquarium’s tweeted: “Very cute marsupial IMHO – and the only one found in the US! Curious if negative reviewers know about the benefits to the eco-system?”

While Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens posted: “Dwarf model provides rapid clearing of foliage, weeds, and unwanted shrubbery in a compact design. Exceptionally adorable, but also will devour clothing and paper if left unattended. Occasionally hard-headed but fun to have around.”

Which tweet made you laugh the hardest?
