Well, thanks for this. Got a Attenborough addicted buddy who is also deeply in touch with his inner 8th grader, who is stressed right now, so this helped cheer him up a bit. Lovely that. Cheers.

Not a proper list if it doesn't include wombats.

You'll never look at an Oxo cube the same way again.

That penguin diagram is the greatest thing I've seen all week.

I can personally testify that penguins can really achieve some distance with their poop. I almost got hit by some when visiting a penguin colony in Chile, and I was pretty impressed with the distance achieved.
