We often tend to read reviews and check ratings before opting for any services or products. These are really helpful for consumers to analyse the product and its utility before investing money in it. But, have you ever heard about animal rating? Not yet, right? So, zoos have started this work with the hashtag #rateaspecies on micro-blogging site Twitter and guess what. it has become a huge hit.
On Friday, zoos across USA began reviewing animals just like products are reviewed on e-commerce websites. The tweet game began with otter being rated by Oregon Zoo and it didn't end soon. Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens went on to rate a lion by giving it four stars. The tweet called the lion mostly harmless. ''A+ excellent sleeper, perfectly content to sleep for 20+ hours in a day. Best to avoid during waking hours,'' the tweet read.
These tweets were so amusing that it kept Twitterati entertained all through the weekend. These tweets which will surely make you ROFL:
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 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
⭐️⭐️⭐️ otter be 4 stars but— Monsterey Boo Ascaryum 🎃 (@MontereyAq) March 9, 2018

⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ A+ VINTAGE ROADSTER— L.A. BOO 👻🎃🧠🕸🦉🕷🍬 (@LAZoo) March 9, 2018
Despite few major design updates since the Ice Age, a worthy investment for current and future aficionados. Oxygen-processing and sustained land speed unparalleled. Extremely rare, though hopefully not for long.#rateaspecies pic.twitter.com/Dqa0Gp7Q7m
⭐⭐⭐ 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
