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.

I am amazed you were able to get all three of the chickens to mimic the pose of the raptors. Truly wonderful!

This is great fun. I am glad to see people have been inspired by the original. May I point out that my fiancée Jason Smyth @slayer1551 posted the photograph of me (Michael Stakounis), duplicating the Jurassic World scene with our three chickens (Tikka, Korma and Jalfrezi) on 7th June 2015. I, (blick2k) posted the same picture on Reddit and Imgur the same day. This original idea and image, which we put great effort and attention to detail into, has over 4400 up votes on the original post (plus over 700 on the second xpost), multiple retweets on Twitter and almost 2 million views on Imgur, was reposted on multiple websites including cnet and buzzfeed.

This one cracked me up because I instantly imagined it with Buster from Arrested Development.
