The “raptor taming” scene in newly released film Jurassic World has inspired zoologists and lay-people alike around the world to recreate the moment with more docile creatures. In the film, Chris Pratt plays Owen Grady, a velociraptor expert who seems to dominate the dinosaurs like a lion tamer.

Tumblr user feminerds started the Jurassic-craze this Wednesday, when she posted a screen capture of the scene alongside a photograph of a zookeeper reenacting the pose with three walruses. Since then, dozens have posted their own versions under #JurassicZoo, #ZoorassicWorld, and #PrattKeeping.
