Japanese macaques gone wild on 'Today'Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb hosted David Mizejewski from the National Wildlife Federation and his friends Friday morning on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC). Mizejewski brought along a capybara, which is the largest rodent in the world, a marine toad, one of the largest amphibians, and a Japanese macaque, who did not handle his first TV appearance too well.

Everything went fine with the first animals, although the capybara was a little smelly. "You know how these animals are, they always are a little bit aromatic," said Mizejewski. Gifford did her best impression of the marine toad, bloating her cheeks and grimacing. "That frog swallowed a princess," she said. "Look at him."

Then Mizejewski introduced his "temperamental one-year old," a Japanese macaque, who screamed for his life and dived at Mizejewski's feet, holding onto his leg for security. "It's his first time on camera, so he's a little nervous," said Mizejewski. "He pooped on me, but that's what happens sometimes." Gifford lamented, "It's just hard to take you seriously with crap all over you."
