This Is Just a Video of a Chipmunk Eating a Peanut While Dangling from a String

Originally posted 08/01/2014 07:00PM

A few weeks ago, the Internet marveled at the impressive upper-body strength of American Ninja Warrior's Kacy Catanzaro, a woman who performed a series of increasingly hazardous physical stunts while handing from a variety of bars and rings.

This video is kind of like that, except for one major difference. It's with a chipmunk.

The Daily Treat: Watch What Happens When a Kangaroo Holds Court at the PEOPLE Offices

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.

'We Are the World' Feline Style: Internet Celebri-Cats Band Together to Save the Tigers (VIDEO)

Originally posted 07/29/2014 03:00PM

It's International Tiger Day, and some very special Internet stars are here to meow all about it.

Lil Bub, Princess Monster Truck, Pudge and more famous web moggies recently joined up with Greenpeace to create the video "Cats Save Tigers." Think of it as a "We Are the World" with more yowling.

In the clip, the kitties explain (with a little help from captions) that while tigers are the largest felines in the world, their numbers are rapidly declining. There are only 3,000 tigers left on Earth today, a depressing figure these cats hope to change.

Russia Loses Control of Zero-Gravity Gecko Sex Satellite

Russia Loses Control of Zero-Gravity Gecko Sex Satellite

Originally posted 07/25/2014 04:00PM

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.
