Zoos Are Tweeting Yelp-Like Reviews of Animal Species and They Are Hilarious

These zookeepers are taking the “cat vs. dog” debate to the next level.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️We’re a FANDA of the red panda. Low maintenance. Self cleaning. Extra fluff included. #rateaspecies pic.twitter.com/zB23VVWQiy

Conservations and wildlife experts are posting hilarious appraisals of animal species in the style of online shopping reviews.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐Pleasantly surprised. Thought I had ordered a Roomba, but this did an excellent job of cleaning up my ecosystem. Only downside is the projectile vomiting. Overall 5 stars, would drunkenly purchase again. #rateaspecies pic.twitter.com/5fDfHiaWNq

The ongoing joke first kicked off when the Oregon Zoo tweeted a picture of an otter with the caption reading: “4/5 stars. Overall very good first impressions. Sturdy built, totally winter-ready and waterproof. Only comes in brown but that’s actually a plus for me. #RateASpecies.”

⭐ very unsatisfied with the shipping. I ordered a frog and what I got was this big melted pile. #rateaspecies pic.twitter.com/6pj9D2HcED

Since then, dozens of wildlife specialists, aquariums, and zoo pages have joined in on the fray with amusing #RateASpecies reviews of their own.

Extremely musky. 5/6 ends sharp and pointy. Handles like a furry noodle. But fantastic for taking care of unwanted prairie dogs along your property.#rateaspecies pic.twitter.com/I7euo0S3GJ

The trend hasn’t been exclusive to wildlife specialists, either – other Twitter users wrote some pretty popular reviews as well.

Color not as shown (not even CLOSE!!!), supposed to be predator but just sits on heated rock all day and let turtles walk all over him (if ambush predators are so different you should tell people) also missing one toe???#rateaspecies pic.twitter.com/5EAdkDN5D4
