In this YouTube video, a baby jaguar – just one of the beautiful charges living with Eduardo Serio at the Black Jaguar White Tiger Foundation – dives into a swimming pool with as much grace as we have when we're sliding on a Slip 'N Slide (yeah, we still Slip 'N Slide, so?).

In a YouTube video only slightly less exciting than a high-speed car chase – but more than slightly cuter – two St. Andrews police officers protected a rogue family of ducks that somehow found their way into the middle of the road. By slowing down traffic and directing them away from the bizarrely-oriented cars (driving on the left side will never look right to us), the two officers fulfilled their sworn duty to protect and serve adorable ducks.

The kangaroo is the first of his kind to be raised by a surrogate wallaby, according to Australia's Adelaide Zoo.
At just five weeks old, the Goodfellow's tree kangaroo's mother died suddenly when she was crushed by a falling branch at the zoo.
"Acting on pure adrenaline," according to the zoo's website, zookeepers decided to try something that had never been done with a tree kangaroo before: cross-fostering. The staff placed the joey (who was too young to hand raise) with a surrogate wallaby mother.
"We've had great success over the years' cross-fostering between wallaby species, but the specialized breeding technique has never been used on a tree kangaroo," said Adelaide Zoo veterinarian, Dr. David McLelland. "We had no idea if the yellow-foot would accept the tree kangaroo joey, but if we wanted to save the joey we had to try our luck."
