 The Pittsburgh Zoo & Aquarium got into the act of joining the #JurassicZookeepers meme movement as zookeepers around the world began tweeting themselves posed in front of animals as Chris Pratt's character is in front of the raptors of the movie "Jurassic World." According to The New York Times, zookeeper enthusiasm may be rooted in the depiction of the human-animal relationship that the character explains, “It's not about control. It's a relationship based on respect." The Pittsburgh Zoo tweeted, "one more just for fun" with its arapaima, native to South America and among the largest freshwater fish in the world.
