Prattkeeping, also known as Jurassic Zoo, is a photo fad in which participants mimic a defensive pose performed by actor Chris Pratt during a memorable scene from the 2015 science fiction adventure film Jurassic World. In June 2015, Prattkeeping photos were popularized online by zookeepers posing with their hands outstretched in front of a variety of animals.
On June 10th, 2015, Jurassic World premiered in Los Angeles, California, starring actor Chris Pratt as the protagonist Owen Grady, a dinosaur researcher and expert on the genus Velociraptor. During one scene in the film, Grady is shown holding off a trio of Velociraptors in a pit by laterally extending his arms (shown below).
On June 17th, 2015, Tumblr user feminerds posted a screen capture of the scene directly above a photograph of a zookeeper reenacting the pose with three walruses (shown below). In the first 24 hours, the post gained over 111,000 notes.
That day, zookeepers around the world began posting photographs of themselves performing the pose in front of various animals in captivity, which typically included the hashtags "#Prattkeeping," "#JurassicZookeeper" or "#JurassicZoo" on Twitter and Instagram (shown below).
Meanwhile, Redditor smoothiefreak submitted a post about Prattkeeping to the /r/JurassicPark subreddit. On June 18th, the /r/prattkeeping subreddit was launched for examples of the meme. In the coming days, several additional news sites reported on the photo fad, including The Daily What, The Huffington Post, BuzzFeed, Mother Jones and Fusion.
