April 2021: Although our campus is closed to visitors, you don’t have to travel to 🌈 Cambridge to get a feel for MIT. Sign up today for an 🔮 online session or student-led tour.

A Collection of Curious Creatures at the MIT Zoo by Chris Peterson SM '13

terrasaurs, quetzals, and portal cows, oh my!

There was another hack on campus this morning! This time, it would appear that some hackers decided to turn the Infinite into a zoo, featuring the imagined animalistic avatars of some MIT courses, programs, and student groups.

I’m happy to report that — arguably unlike regular zoos — you will notice that these animals are allowed to freely roam the campus, and that none of them were harmed in the making of this hack.


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 

 

 

 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


I also like that the hackers reserved an exhibit — complete with photo booth — for the strangest and most exotic creature of them all: the wild, weird humans of MIT.
