Dudes, I love this. LOVE. I am the kind of person who would rather hang out with animals all day than worry about human interaction. Lately, I've had a hankering for going to a zoo and this fuels the fire more.
Is there anything better than sciencey types geeking out over biodiversity in the form of overly earnest fake Amazon reviews? If the “rateaspecies” hashtag making rounds on Twitter this weekend is any indicator, probably not.
It all started on Friday, when the Oregon Zoo posted this “review” of an exceptionally dashing river otter on its official Twitter account:
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ FIRST IMPRESSIONS— Oregon Zoo (@OregonZoo) March 9, 2018
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 pic.twitter.com/IK99ODsTPT
This makes me so happy! You can search the hashtag on Twitter or check out more HERE. Other highlights:

This stylish little unit is amazing. Sound quality A+. No distortion at full volume but bass is a little weak. Top rotates which is a plus. #rateaspecies pic.twitter.com/OYaWOfzosA
⭐⭐⭐ NOT AS EXPECTED— CA AcademyOfSciences (@calacademy) March 9, 2018
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
