Prattkeeping: The Internet’s Newest Meme

So Chris Pratt tamed a few raptors in Jurassic World… big whoop!

Zookeepers have been taming their equally ferocious animals for centuries, and now they’re hilariously showing off their skills in the Internet’s newest meme, #prattkeeping!

Check out some of our favorite ones below:

Sea lions, like raptors, rely on their group for hunting.

Rhinos: the modern day triceratops.

Fun fact: Scientists believe that the world’s oldest found penguin fossil suggests that the flightless birds may have outlived the dinosaurs!

Something seems a little backwards here…

Lemurs, when untrained, can wreak absolute havoc on society. Just watch Zoboomafoo for proof.

  You wouldn’t want to meet these otters in a dark alley, that’s for sure.

How do I sign up to Prattkeep some dolphins!?

…But it’s Hiccup from How to Train Your Dragon who may just have the toughest (and cutest) job of all.

New Jurassic World Trailer Released!

Universal has just released the latest trailer for Jurassic World!

Hold on to your butts,  we are in for a thrill!

This latest trailer shows us non-stop action and gives us sneak peak at some of the incredible sequences that we are going to see, including a scene where a helicopter, I repeat, a HELICOPTER, is struck down by (presumably) a dinosaur.

The trailer also gives us a better look at Jurassic World’s newest monstrosity, Indominous Rex.

We know already that she is a lab created hybrid, but upon looking closely at her characteristics it’s a fair guess that she is a hybrid of the T-Rex and a Velociraptor. The body of the dinosaur closely resembles the T-Rex, but the shape and styling of her head (as well as that creepy blinking) is a lot more reminiscent of a Raptor.

But since it was revealed that Indominous Rex was designed to be larger than the T-Rex, maybe there’s a third entity mixed in. Perhaps the Spinosaurus (From Jurassic Park III)?

The trailer also gave us more insight into how exactly Chris Pratt’s character is able to tame and control his raptor squad. Many theories online speculated that their obedience may have been due to genetic manipulation, but based on this trailer he seems to be able to “control” them simply through good ol’ R-E-S-P-E-C-T.

Everything will be known for sure when Jurassic World hits theaters June 12th.

Did you enjoy the trailer? Let us know in the comments below!

Jurassic World’s Park Website is Incredibly Awesome

Universal has released an official website for the fictitious park featured in Jurassic World, giving us all a sad reminder that we still don’t have theme parks with actual dinosaurs.

But reality aside, the website is actually pretty amazing. It mirrors the website style of those of other theme parks, offering ticket packages, outlying show times, and listing exhibits, restaurants, and lodging opportunities.

Of course those parks don’t have freakin’ dinosaurs.

The website provides information and fun facts about the animals showcased in Jurassic World, including the T-Rex, who is noted to be 25 years old.

This means that the Rex that will appear in Jurassic World may just be our favorite jeep and lawyer munching friend that starred in the first Jurassic Park film.

It seems that the only attraction the park is missing is a close encounter with Chris Pratt, but that’s something we should have no problem conjuring up in our fantasies.

Jurassic World even has a Margaritaville! Say what?!

The disappointment that this isn’t real is almost too much to bear.

But while we may not be seeing real dinosaurs anytime in the near future (or ever), all hope of having a Jurassic World experience isn’t lost.

Jurassic World will, without a doubt, make a killing at the box office. This would create a great opportunity for Universal Studios theme parks to create more modern Jurassic Park themed areas, bringing in patrons who are fans of the film.

Many Universal Studios theme parks have Jurassic Park themed areas already, but based on my own experience with Universal Studios Orlando, those attractions are dated, featuring underwhelming animatronics that have been there since the 1990’s.

But I suppose Universal Studios Orlando is close to being Jurassic World in at least one regard: they already have a Margaritaville.

Let us know what you thought of the website in the comments below!
