Tom Hiddleston Narrating A Giraffe Birth Is Weirdly Sexy!

We're going to be honest.

We don't care if his relationship with Taylor Swift was fake. We don't care if he's a little blowhardy. We don't even mind that he tried to murder the Avengers.

We are so fucking into Tom Hiddleston.

The Kong: Skull Island star stopped by BBC Radio 1's Breakfast Show with Nick Grimshaw, where he was tasked with providing a David Attenborough-style narration to the livestream of April the Giraffe — which animal lovers are watching as they wait for the Animal Adventure Park denizen to give birth.

What we got is another reminder that Tom's velvety voice goes with everything! Even a giraffe cam.

Seriously, Disney should hire Tom for their next IMAX nature film!

Ch-ch-check out the HIGHlarious and weirdly hot narration (below)!

New Report Reveals Giraffes Are Officially 'Vulnerable' To Extinction — Find Out Why!

This is so heartbreaking!

On Thursday, 2016 got even sh*ttier after the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species released a report citing giraffes as "vulnerable to extinction".

Obviously, the news is devastating to animal lovers across the globe. It's hard to imagine the tallest land mammal might be gone from this earth if we don't act immediately.

According to the analysis, the species are at risk due to a "growing human illegal hunting, habitat loss and changes through expanding agriculture and mining, increasing human-wildlife conflict, and civil unrest".

Jeez, what a doozy! It's no wonder why there has been a 36-40% decline in the giraffe population since 1985!

Let's just hope a September 2016 resolution adopted by the World Conservation Congress will reverse the rapid population decline.

So, are YOU surprised by this news?
