Funny Animal Memes You Need to See Before Your Next Zoo Trip
If there's a good zoo near you, we highly recommend a visit in the near future. After all, animals have no sense of decorum whatsoever, and watching them live is just as amusing for adults as it is for kids.
To inspire your next trip to the zoo, we gathered some funny animal memes that remind us just how wild wildlife can be.
Want to Know What It Would Be Like to Live in a Zoo?
It would be like this: You're trying to be responsible, so you hit the gym on your way home from work. You're so excited for dinner after, but what do you find when you open the fridge? All of your food encased in a block of ice.
You sigh heavily as you get the chisel.
Actually, You Can Have a Taste of Zoo Life if You Really Want to
Reverse zoos exist, and it's a similar experience to swimming with sharks from inside a cage.
This looks like the equivalent of an ice cream truck for tigers, though, and we're not sure how we feel about it.
This Animal Meme Raises an Important Question
The question: To a lion, are we junk food? We're definitely not organic. Most of us can't even say we're free-range or farm-raised either.
Are we nachos with refried beans? Maybe we're Lunchables.
The Columbus Zoo's Marketing Manager Brought Their 'A Game' on This One
Elephants restore our faith in love. If your date to the zoo bails on you, who even cares? You're still at the zoo with Dippin' Dots and zebras.
Life is good.
New Life Goal Acquired
You can't deny that this would be the hardest flex at any high school reunion. Wow, Barbara! You opened your own salon and got married? And James, you made partner at your law firm? That's amazing.
Well, I made a TikTok account about my quest to buy a live giraffe, got 200K followers, then bought the giraffe. It's not a competition, but I think we know who won here.
There Should Be a Parenting Questionnaire Before Every Zoo Visit
Kids aren't the problem at zoos. Parents are. Every time some toddler falls into an animal enclosure, the parents act like it was the zoo's fault, not their own lack of common sense and parenting skills.
If camels appear to be eating your child's head, please assist your child before taking a picture. Thank you for coming to our TED Talk.
What Could Be More Respectable Than This?
Seriously, that's a real question. Would you have more respect for Tim, who has to wear khakis and sit in a cubicle every day of his life, or Tony, who wanders through a forest in a panda onesie to help an endangered species?
Think about it.
Zookeepers Don't Get Paid Enough
We don't actually know how much zookeepers make, but we're guessing it's not enough. Luckily, most of them seem to love their jobs and really have fun with it.

Kids, Don't Repeat This Zoo Joke at School
It doesn't technically use profanity, but your teacher might disagree.
Still hilarious, though.
This Gives Us an Idea
Instead of letting scientists name new species, why not let kindergarteners do it? We don't need more animals named after old guys.
Seagulls are now beach chickens and kangaroos are veloci-rabbits. Case closed.
This Zoo Meme Took a Depressing Turn
It made us realize that we'd rather be turned into an amphibian than deal with inflation and a global climate crisis.
No thoughts. Only lily pads. Time to eat a bug.
The Australia Exhibit Needs a New Name
How about an exhibit called "Everything in Here Wants to Kill You?" The exhibit can be divided into two sections:
1. Animals that want to kill you but can't.
2. Animals that want to kill you and will absolutely do it if the glass breaks.
If you need us, we'll be chillin' at the penguin exhibit on the other side of the zoo.
Every Childhood Movie Prepared Us for This Moment
If a small primate with facial hair challenges you to a fight, it means you're the chosen one. This is your destiny. Go learn kung fu and pick a fight with a tiger.

This Puffin Looks Like Every Mom Ever
Hear us out, moms. Your laundry is on the couch, half-folded. The playroom looks too played in. You're not expecting company.
But there's a knock at the door. If you don't answer it looking exactly like this apologetic puffin, you're lying.
We All Have That One Friend
You know the one. The one who doesn't consider a cereal box empty until they've poured the sugary crumbs at the bottom into milk and called it breakfast. The one who licks plates clean.
It's weird but so eco-friendly.
Ah, We Remember This Feeling
It was fun to be the only one with a license for about a week.
After that, you stop feeling cool and start asking for gas money.
Why Did No One Inform Us About This?
Seriously, someone should be fired.
There was no public service announcement breaking the news that Fennec foxes can be stacked like living Disney Tsum Tsums.
This Zoo Meme Is Inspiring and Heartbreaking All at Once
Inspiring because it means unicorns are real. Heartbreaking because unicorns are real, but we body-shamed them until they no longer felt magical.
It's OK, unicorn. You're still magical to us.
Talk About an Identity Crisis
This poor guy doesn't know what to do, but we have faith that one day he'll figure it out.
