Raptor Trainer

I saw Jurassic World the day it came out, and it was amazing. I loved the raptor trainer, even if he used his clicker to get the raptors' attention rather than as a marker for good behavior. A friend has been sending me pictures of zookeepers recreating the dramatic scene where Chris Pratt's character leaps into the raptor enclosure to stop his animals from messily devouring an unlucky new employee.

Jurassic World has taught animal handlers around the world that there's nothing your charges will respect like dramatically standing with your arms outstretched.

Even if your animals aren't paying attention. It's the thought that counts.
