What if animals got Yelp/Amazon reviews? Animal people everywhere pounced on the idea, and the results made me laugh out loud!
It’s called #rateaspecies. It was started at the end of last week, on Friday the 9th by the Oregon Zoo (@OregonZoo). Since then, the hashtag has rocketed into fame and even gone viral.
#rateaspecies is still a popular tweet to this day, so it’s not to late to join in. But perhaps you would like to see how it’s done first?
At any rate, here are 12 of the best tweets I could find on the topic. Swallow any food you’re chewing, because you’re about to laugh!
WORST. SHIPPING. EVER!
As Bored Panda author Allana Rose said so aptly: “Just don’t prematurely bury it!”
Bored Panda user Jiří Schindler summed it up perfectly when he commented: “Jabba wants his kid back!” (http://bit.ly/2FQmBZG)
I’m sure it’s just misunderstood… …Right?
This creepy creature is actually named Claude. He is albino and thus lacks any melanin (pigmentation) in his scales; this unusual condition also makes his eyesight very poor. (http://bit.ly/2DAc4zS)
I used to own frogs as a pet when I was a kid, but none of them looked like this!
This review makes the baby turtle sound like the cutest cellphone in existence.
Comes in small, medium, and kraken.
This perfectly describes my cat Autumn!
Sorry that the gif isn’t available, dear reader. It shows the fox face-planting into the snow. Hilarious!
This one seems a bit dangerous, but I suppose as a professional employee of an animal Sanctuary, she knows what she’s doing. Still, it’s probably a good thing wolves aren’t used this way. Otherwise, pillows would be out of a job.
There, I hope you enjoyed the list. Which one was your favorite? Leave a comment and let me know! Personally, the tweet I liked the most was the baby turtle one. It’s just too cute!
On a side note, special thanks to Giedrė from the boredpanda.com for writing a great article which brought this phenomenon to my attention. (https://www.boredpanda.com/zoos-amazon-animal-reviews-rateaspecies/)
And until next time: stay fuzzy, my friends!
