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.
#ingeniousanimals WOW!! What an amazing view from the back of an eagle.

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”.

A serious case of DIARRHEA and a BACKWARD PENIS make hippos the perfect fertiliser spreaders! #WhenPoopHitsTheFan #IngeniousAnimals ð©ð©ð© pic.twitter.com/oZy4LSxplT

Watching a hippo having an episode of explosive diarrhea. Nothing unusual. #IngeniousAnimals

It's all v fascinating knowing hippos feed for 7 hrs straight but do we need a graphic illustration of outputs #IngeniousAnimals #IAmEating

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.

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.
I really really really want a pet sloth nowðð RT @BBCOne: Brb – off to go live with sloths. âºï¸ #IngeniousAnimals pic.twitter.com/n1pkhGyKjP
