These Zoos Are Giving Their Animals Amazon-Like Reviews And They're As Informative As They Are Creative

by Elana

Zoos are something virtually everyone has heard of, and at some point there is a high probability just about everyone has visited one. To put it simple, a zoo is "an establishment which maintains a collection of wild animals, typically in a park or gardens, for study, conservation, or display to the public." Depending on where you live and how well-funded and maintained your local zoo is, you could easily see a wide variety of global animals right in front of your face that you would never see otherwise, unless worldwide travel comes easy to you. (For most people, that would be way too expensive.)

On top of animal conservation, education is a key component to the zoo experience. People of all ages can learn about wild animals from antelope and zebras to lions, tigers, and bears (oh my!) But if your interest isn't already peaked, these zoos have added an adorable and hilarious element of creativity to bringing in guests: they're posting reviews of their animals, similar to the sorts of reviews you might see from buyers on Amazon! It's an adorable way to spread education about a variety of zoo animals and they're surprisingly informative for how funny they are. Check some of them out here!
