You may remember the internet going mildly crazy for this video of a tortoise with sexual identity issues. (Not his identity, just the identity of his chosen mate, which is a Croc.) It had all the hallmarks of a blockbuster — sexy sexy romance, dubious fashion choices, animals making adorable “enh!” noises. But what it didn’t have was David Attenborough.

Well, that has finally been rectified. On a recent episode of the Graham Norton Show, Attenborough narrated — apparently ad lib — the tortoise’s frustrated coupling and his mighty mating cry. As Norton says, it really elevates the whole endeavor.

The next step should surely be a BBC miniseries where Attenborough travels the world watching animals hump inanimate objects. I would watch every episode.
