We all know it's a good idea to check the product reviews before buying something, whether it is a washing machine or a bottle of hair conditioner. Most people are used to seeing a 1-5 star rating next to inanimate objects, however, Oregon Zoo decided to put a twist on the usual format.

On Friday, they started celebrating the start of the weekend by posting humorous reviews of their animals as if they were ordered on Amazon. The lighthearted joke went viral instantly and other animal enthusiasts picked up the trend as well. Soon, zoos, aquariums, wildlife centers and even regular pet owners all over the world were sharing their own witty comments under the hashtag #rateaspecies. Scroll down to see what animals received five-star ratings and don't forget to vote and comment on your favorites!

I love the MB Aquarium, and can confirm these guys are everywhere, but can we discuss the seagulls? One stole my ice cream bar when I was five, and I've never truly recovered.
