We’re used to celebrities dropping by our offices – but when a fox and an alligator paid us a visit recently, we all went a little wild!
The visit was courtesy of Martin and Chris Kratt, the brothers who star in PBS’s Wild Kratts, an animated children’s series about animals who live in places like jungles and swamplands.
Martin, who held the 7-week-old swift fox and kept stroking him – just like a pet! – told us that the cute and cuddly animal only grows to about the size of a house cat.
