We all love a BBC nature documentary, so what better programme to snuggle down with on a Thursday night than Ingenious Animals.
Viewers couldn’t wait to see all those beautiful creatures and find out about the amazing things they can do.
Absolutely love nature documentaries, animals in their natural habitat are fascinating 🐘🐋🐊 #ingeniousanimals— Miss JLP (@jessperks_pgce) September 22, 2016
Hang on, did someone say…hippos?
Umm, sorry to break it to you, but the hippos’ talent may not exactly be what you’d term “cute”. Spoiler alert: the presenter labelled them “nature’s natural lawnmowers and fertilisers”.
Watching a hippo having an episode of explosive diarrhea. Nothing unusual. #IngeniousAnimals— Jamie K. Murray (@jamiekmurray) September 22, 2016
Although if a cute fix is what you’re after, tree kangaroos seem to be the way to go.
One woman in Australia was even playing mum to one of the marsupials, letting it sleep in her bed and sharing breakfast with it.
Tree Kangaroos are great, I wish I'd discovered them before now #IngeniousAnimals— Joshua Sodergren (@Soderg97) September 22, 2016
We also got to see the ever-popular sloth – and again, people totally bypassed the wild animal thing to daydream about how great it would be to keep one as a pet.
Fair enough, they are lovely though.
Gotta love a sloth #IngeniousAnimals 😊— becky tomkins (@tomkins_becky) September 22, 2016
