I am watching National Geographic. Kangaroos have two awesome reproductive features that I wish I had.
1) When the joey is 5 weeks along, it gets born and makes the trek up to the pouch to settle in for nine months. What I wouldn't give to take my baby out and keep it in a nice, warm pocket for the rest of its gestation time, so I could peek in on it and make sure it's OK.
2) Once the joey gets settled, the kangaroo mates again, producing a back-up embryo. It sits dormant in embroyonic diapause, and if anything happens to the joey in the pouch, the back-up embryo starts to grow again to replace it. Obviously, that also would've been a great feature for me.
Man, kangaroos have it made.

What would you want to be if you were watching another channel?
