    Chris Pratt Pretended To Train Raptors With Kids At A Children's Hospital

    This is ADORABLE.

    Since the release of Jurassic World, people have been turning the scene in which Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) "trains" velociraptors into a rather brilliant meme.

    Well, it turns out Pratt has joined in on the fun, too. While visiting the Our Lady of the Lake Children's Hospital in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Pratt was snapped re-enacting the raptor pose with three children.

    The photo was shared on the hospital Facebook page and by Reddit user chrysias – where it went viral – over the weekend.

    The visit was coordinated by Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, an organisation that raises funds and awareness for 170 member children's hospitals across the U.S. and Canada. The Reddit user said that if Chris Pratt's "heart of gold" inspired people, they could consider donating to a CMN hospital in their area. "I guarantee they could use your dollars," she added.

    In a Facebook post, the hospital said: "Actor Chris Pratt, best known for Jurassic World and Guardians of the Galaxy, took time out from filming his latest movie to visit with our ‪#‎AmazingKids‬ at Our Lady of the Lake Children's Hospital. Our patients were all smiles and we are so thankful to Chris for lifting their spirits by visiting and handing out Jurassic World goodies. Thanks to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals for coordinating such a special visit!"

    In other photos shared by the hospital, Pratt is seen signing Jurassic World posters for the children.

    Other photos show Pratt posing with the kids.

    And playing with toys with them, too.

    But perhaps the most heartwarming photos are the ones of Pratt by the children's bedsides.

    We hope the kids had a brilliant time with Pratt at Our Lady of the Lake Children's Hospital. <3
