Recently, the US celebrated National Zookeeper Week - and a zoo in Minnesota decided to get super creative. They made a photoshoot with zookeepers pretending to be animals. With this project they're asking the public whether or not animals and their care takers start bearing resemblance over time...

The 'Human Zoo' shows a zookeeper named Cathy 'resembling' Tia, the white-cheeked gibbon ape. Then, two other zookepers pretending to be a couple of large tortoises enjoying their lunch. Jeez, we even see a lady dressed as a seal and a man pretending to be a caterpillar.

Maybe we're not that different from the animals after all!

What animal is this? I was here last week and I don't recall this one? Looks like a turtle hiding. Anyone?
