You don’t have to see Jurassic World, a movie that just set the record for opening weekend revenue, to be familiar with a specific scene from the new dinosaur flick: Chris Pratt’s character Owen Grady is sort of a velociraptor whisperer in the latest installment of the Jurassic Park universe and he’s able to sort of control raptors, as seen in the image above. That move has become the latest Internet meme, with zookeepers and pet owners everywhere showing their similar skills on Twitter and Instagram.

In what follows, you’ll get to see a variety of trained – or not-that-trained – animal keepers using Pratt’s raptor control stance, complete with outstretched arms.
