You’ve probably left reviews for films, books or even clothes online – but what about animals?
Amazon reviews for animals may seem like an odd concept – but that’s what a group of zoos are doing on Twitter.
#rateaspecies features dozens of ‘reviews’ for animals – ranging from the cute to the creepy – and parks including Oregon Zoo, the Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Garden, and the UK’s very own ABC Wildlife Park in York have been taking part.
And, for such a seemingly incongruous subject, the reviews are kind of amazing.
Some were adorable…
But others didn’t quite get what they bargained for.

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
⭐️⭐️⭐️ 3/5 Audio Recorder: Mixed feelings on this review. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone. It only records what it finds interesting. AND will replay LOUDLY usually at or BEFORE sunrise.Also, no battery needed. Requires fresh fruits & veggies. VERY MESSY.— Rick Schwartz ❤️’s Binturongs (@ZooKeeperRick) March 10, 2018
And, naturally, people loved it, replying in their droves
Trip to the zoo, anyone?
