What’s The ‘Art Of The Zoo’ Trend On TikTok?

If you're a TikTok user, you've probably noticed 'art of the zoo' popping up on your 'For You' page time and time again - so what is it exactly?

'Art of the zoo' is the latest trend to go viral on the platform and it involves participants Googling 'art of the zoo' and filming their reaction to the results.

Over the last year, memes that ask social media users to Google a random phrase have always gone viral, because the answer is usually funny or weird. Take 'why were chainsaws invented?' as an example. The answer: To help with childbirth - yes really!

But judging by TikTokers' reactions to this one, 'art of the zoo' is next level disturbing.


What does 'art of the zoo' mean?

Be aware, this is not suitable for children (it's questionable whether it's suitable for adults too).

When you Google 'art of the zoo' you will be met with photos of humans having sex with animals - formally known as bestiality.

The hashtag #artofzoo has racked up more than 6.2 million views on TikTok as users post their reactions.


It's disturbing to say the least. Here are some of the reactions.

Lots of TikTok users have stitched with this video reaction from @k_starxo, who captures her friend heaving after searching for 'art of the zoo.'


But others have criticised this user for laughing in the video.

One user commented: "Why y'all laughing? It's literally animal abuse."

Another wrote: "Why are people laughing at this. I just read the comments and from what I see it's something extremely messed up. It shouldn't be on TikTok."

Others came to her defence and said she's laughing at her friend's reaction rather than bestiality.


But either way, I think we can all agree that this latest TikTok trend is incredibly messed up.
