If there’s one thing sorority girls are nationally recognized for, it’s their signature poses for photos. Sororities may differ in many different ways, but what always stays the same and allows a Greek female to be instantly recognized is how she stands for a photograph. Probably the most recognizable is the family tree, which will happen at every big/little reveal until the end of time, but we’re also big fans of the skinny arm, the line-up, and the arms-in-front hug. However, it turns out that we’re not the only ones to pose in these previously unique ways for our Facebook profile pictures – after all this time, we’ve been copying meerkats.

Yep, you heard right – sorority girls are all basically meerkats. Twitter user Kevin Bergbauer made the amazing revelation that meerkats and sorority girls pose exactly alike, and honestly, the similarities are uncanny.

The Internet is exploding with this knowledge, and I’m totally on board with the hype. All this time we thought we’ve been creatively celebrating our status as Greek women, but nope, we’ve just been imitating the world’s strangest zoo animals. Of course, since this news is giving us one more reason to share our favorite throwback Thursday photos again on social media, sorority girls are all about it, responding to the original tweet with their own photo compilations in the exact same poses. Don’t lie, you know you have at least ten pictures in each and every one of these poses.

Ok, fine, so we’re all guilty of posing like meerkats, but what about frat boys? Well, if Twitter user Kaitlyn Gardner is onto something, they’re all basically prairie dogs, and honestly, I see the resemblance there too.

Get ready for rush season everybody, because you’re about to see a whole lot of jungle animal mixers re-imagined in the strangest way. While we’ve all been dressing up as lions, tigers, and peacocks, we’ll now be spending our evenings dressed up as the rodents of the animal kingdom. But hey, any excuse to rock a nude bodysuit, am I right?
