They've probably never seen a diamond in the flesh, and they prefer to cut their teeth on, uh, grass. As for their address, they call the Klingenberg Farms home – how's that for postcode envy?

They may not be king of the jungle, but to us, kangaroos have a certain mystical quality – like that of Kanye, Kim or any K-named celeb for that matter.
So, when National Geographic asked us if they could bring a gray kangaroo to our New York City offices to promote their new special Urban Jungle (airing Aug. 3 at 9 p.m.), we were more than happy (hoppy?) to oblige.
Her name was Ingrid and she definitely stole our hearts – and any ounce of remaining productivity we had on a Thursday morning. As she hopped down our halls with a GoPro camera, hordes of people gathered to catch a glimpse, a selfie, or any other evidence that the Australian native was actually on the 29th floor of our usually quiet office building.

An owner of a zoo in Michigan's Upper Peninsula says a 12-inch alligator has escaped, possibly with some help from a tortoise.
MLive.com reports the alligator named Carlos got out of an enclosure over the weekend at the GarLyn Zoo near Naubinway. He was spotted by people nearby, who called police, but he wasn't caught.

They say in space, no one can hear you scream, but that's not the case if you're one of five geckos having sex on a rogue Russian satellite.
The geckos were sent to space on July 19, as part of a mission to test the effects of low gravity on plant and animal life, particularly the geckos' sexual behavior.
Unfortunately, the Russian space agency lost control of the Photon-M4 satellite shortly after it made its way into orbit. As the Moscow-based news agency Interfax reported Thursday, mission control suspects a problem in the satellite's engine caused it to stop responding to commands from Earth.
