(rock'n'roll music plays)

In an animated frame, fast clip shows images of different animals: horses, llamas, pandas rolling down a ladder, a dog jumping for a treat, cats skateboarding, giraffes fighting one another and a snake lurking on the forest floor.

A son plays that says HUSTLE AROUND WITH THE
PONDERING PANDAS
TEACHING A DOG TRICKS
DISCOVERING ANSWERS
WE LOVE OUR CRAZY CRITTERS
WE LOOK TO FIND OUT
WHAT THEY DO
IT'S CREATURE MANIA
(CHEERING AND APPLAUSE)

The name of the show appears in yellow animal print letters on an orange background. It reads "Creature Mania."

Alfie walks in his bamboo tree house.

Alfie is in his twenties, with short curly brown hair and wears eggshell trousers and a black T-shirt with white rims.

He says HEY, HEY CREATURE MANIACS,
WELCOME TO THE SHOW THAT'S ALL
ABOUT OUR ANIMAL FRIENDS,
AND COMPLETELY CREATURE CRAZY.
IT'S
CREATURE MANIA!
ON TODAY'S EPISODE WE'VE GOT
SOME ANIMAL FACTS THAT WILL BLOW
YOUR MONKEY MIND.

Clips show different types of animals as Alfie says THERE'S MACAQUES FROM JAPAN,
MULTI-COLOURED LIZARDS,
MASSIVE ELEPHANTS
AND TINY HUMMINGBIRDS.
WE HAVE A LAUGH WITH PANDA
AND PONY,
GET CUTE WITH LOVELY LEMURS
AND MEET A FEROCIOUS LOOKING
BEARDED DRAGON IN PET N' TELL.
PLUS, LOTS, LOTS, MORE.
WOW.
IT'S GOING TO BE A PACKED SHOW,
LET'S KICK IT OFF BY CHECKING
IN WITH DR. KATRINA
AND THOSE AMAZING WONDER DOGS,
AS SHE HELPS A KEEN YOUNG DOG
TRAINER, IN DOG TRICKS.

A caption reads "Dog Tricks."

Doctor Katrina is in her thirties, with long straight brown hair and wears jeans and a hot pink Creature Mania T-shirt.

She sits on the grass with 4 brown and white dogs and says HI AND WELCOME TO DOG TRICKS.
I AM DR. KATRINA AND THESE
ARE THE AMAZING WONDER DOGS.
TODAY WE'RE GOING TO SHOW YOU
HOW TO TEACH YOUR DOG
TO SHAKE PAWS AND DART
IS GOING TO DEMONSTRATE THIS.
BUT FIRST LET'S LEARN A LITTLE
BIT ABOUT HER.
MEET DART... ..SHE'S THREE YEARS OLD.
HER NICKNAME IS DARTY.
HER FAVOURITE TRICKS ARE PLAYING
QUOITS AND DOING DOGA.
THAT'S YOGA FOR DOGS.
FAVOURITE HOBBIES: AGILITY
AND SWIMMING.

Clips show the dog doing its favourite activities.

Katrina says HER NAUGHTIEST DEED IS CHASING
THE KANGAROOS AT HER HOME.
HER OBSESSIONS: RUNNING
AND BEING CUDDLED.
HER FAVOURITE TREAT IS A DOB
OF YOGHURT
ON HER MORNING BREAKFAST.
THREE WORDS TO DESCRIBE DART:
FUN, HAPPY AND SWEET.
AND NOW LET'S SEE DART
DEMONSTRATE IT.

A caption reads "Shake Paws."

Katrina shakes her paw and says GOOD GIRL.
SHAKE.
SHAKING PAWS IS AN OLD FAVOURITE
AND IT'S A VERY CUTE PARTY
TRICK.
BEFORE YOU TEACH YOUR DOG
TO SHAKE PAWS,
IT DOES NEED TO KNOW
HOW TO SIT.
MAKE SURE YOU TEACH ONE PAW
FIRST.
YES, GOOD GIRL.
MASTER THAT BEFORE MOVING ONTO
THE SECOND PAW.
HELLO.
OH TWO PAWS.
WELL, THAT WAS OUR EXPERT
DEMONSTRATION.
NOW IT'S TIME TO MEET OUR
BUDDING YOUNG DOG TRAINER
AND THEIR DOG.
I'M HERE WITH VERONICA
AND BUDDY.
VERONICA TELL ME A LITTLE BIT
ABOUT BUDDY.

Veronica is around 9, with long brown hair in pig tails and wears denim shorts and a blue T-shirt. Buddy is a white fluffy dog.

Veronica says VERY FRIENDLY AND PLAYFUL.
HE IS OUR GUARD DOG
AND WHEN WE COME HOME HE ALWAYS
WELCOMES US BY JUMPING UP
AND DOWN
AND SPINNING AROUND LIKE CRAZY
AND HE LOVES CUDDLES
AND CAR TRIPS.

Katrina says DO YOU THINK IT'S IMPORTANT
TO TRAIN DOGS.

Veronica says YOU CAN'T JUST GIVE THEM FOOD
ALL THE TIME FOR NO REASON
AND IT'S ALSO FUN TO TRAIN THEM.
BUDDY CAN DO A FEW TRICKS.
HE CAN DO SIT, STAND UP ON HIS
HIND LEGS, HIGH FIVE
AND HE CAN GO DO A WEE
WHEN WE WANT HIM TO.

Katrina says OH, HE IS A GOOD LITTLE FELLA.
DO YOU WANT TO DO SOME TRICK
TRAINING WITH HIM?

Veronica says OKAY.

Katrina says OKAY.
YOU READY BUDDY?
YES HE IS.
LET'S GO.
TODAY VERONICA AND I ARE GOING
TO TEACH BUDDY
TO SHAKE PAWS.
NOW THIS IS A SUPER CUTE TRICK.
FIRST STEP IS TO HAVE HIM SIT
AND SEE IF WE CAN GET HIM
TO OFFER THAT PAW TO YOUR HAND.
LET HIM KNOW YOU HAVE GOT
THAT THERE.
NOW CALL HIM TO YOU.

Veronicas says BUDDY.
BUDDY.

Katrina says SHAKE PAWS.

They both say YES.
GOOD BOY.

Katrina says WELL THAT WAS STEP ONE.
WE WILL BE BACK SOON
WITH STEP TWO
JUST TO SEE IF HE WILL COME UP
WITH THAT OTHER PAW.
DO YOU THINK HE WILL?

Veronica says YEAH.

Katrina says YEAH I THINK SO TOO.

Back in the bamboo tree house, Alfie says AWW, ISN'T BUDDY ADORABLE?
I MEAN LIKE HOW CUTE IS HE?
DID YOU SEE THAT FLUFF?
LOOKS LIKE VERONICA
AND BUDDY ARE GOING TO HAVE FUN
LEARNING TO SHAKE PAWS.
BUT NOW, IT'S TIME
FOR AN ANIMAL FACT.

An announcer says DID YOU KNOW... ..IN ELEPHANT SOCIETY MUMS
THE RULE.
IN THIS MATRIARCHAL SOCIETY,
THE LEADER IS ACTUALLY
A GRANDMOTHER.
THE HERD IS MADE UP
OF HER DAUGHTERS
AND GRANDDAUGHTERS.
MUM'S THE WORD IN THIS HERD.
STRICTLY NO BOYS ALLOWED.
SORRY, JUMBO.
ALL THE MALES ARE FORCED OUT AT
AN EARLY AGE, STAYING SINGLE,
OR JOINING BACHELOR GROUPS
AND THAT'S...

Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT.

Alfie says AND NOW MY CREATURE FRIENDS IT'S
TIME TO MEET A FEW OTHER PALS
OF MINE.
THEY'RE CHATTY,
THEY'RE TALKATIVE,
THEY'RE VERBOSE,
THEY'RE LOQUACIOUS.
WHO ELSE COULD I BE TALKING
ABOUT?
IT'S TIME FOR TWO BOBS.

Ac caption reads "Two Bobs."

In the woods, beetle Bob rolls a ball of mud down dry leaves and says HEY BOB, LOOK WHAT I FOUND.
YEAH.

Monkey Bob says OH GOOD ONE BOB.
THAT'S A BIGGIN.

Beetle Bob says SURE IS BOB.
FOUND IT NEAR THE BUSH
OVER THERE.

Monkey Bob says PRETTY SMOOTH LOOKING TOO.

Beetle Bob says YEAH IT'S REAL EASY TO ROLL
AS WELL.

Monkey Bob says HEY WONDER WHAT KIND
OF ANIMAL IT CAME FROM.

Beetle Bob says WHAT DO YOU MEAN
BOB?

Monkey Bob says WELL YOU KNOW, WHAT KIND
OF POO IS IT?

Beetle Bob says WHAT DO YOU MEAN POO?
WHAT YOU TALKING ABOUT?

Monkey Bob says THE POO, YEAH YOU KNOW ALL THAT
BROWN STUFF YOU ARE COLLECTING.
POO.
YOU'RE A DUNG BEETLE BOB.

Beetle Bob says WHEN YOU SAY,
WHEN YOU SAY POO...

Monkey Bob says I MEAN POO YEAH BOB,
YOU EAT POO.
OH.
P DOUBLE O.
POOPETY POOPETY DOO.

Beetle Bob says COULD YOU STOP AHH...

Monkey Bob says YOU ALL RIGHT BOB?

Beetle Bob says JUST GIVE ME,
JUST GIVE ME A MINUTE.

Back in the bamboo tree house, Alfie says AHH, THEY'RE A CRACK UP.
MORE FROM THEM LATER.
NEXT ON THE SHOW,
IT'S TIME TO PUT YOUR ANIMAL
KNOWLEDGE TO THE TEST
AND SEE HOW YOUR BRAIN
IS TRAINING.
IT'S TIME FOR CREATURE QUIZ.

An announcer says WHICH OF THESE ANIMALS ESCAPES
THE COLD WITH THE HELP
OF A HOT TUB?
IS IT: A. THE SNOW MONKEY?
B. THE POLAR BEAR,
OR C. THE PENGUIN?
I DON'T KNOW ABOUT THESE GUYS.
TUXEDOS AND HOT TUBS DON'T MIX,
DO THEY?
IF YOU ANSWERED A.
THE SNOW MONKEY,
CONGRATULATIONS.
YOU ARE CORRECT.
THESE MONKEYS LOVE A HOT TUB.

A clip shows two monkeys running in the snow.

The announcer says GOT TO GET WARM.
GOT TO GET WARM.
ON THE DOUBLE.
MOVE IT MONKEYS.
JUST LIKE HUMANS,
SNOW MONKEYS ARE FAMOUS
FOR THEIR ABILITY TO LEARN.
IMAGINE IF YOU WERE STUCK
IN THE FOREST
AND THERE WAS A BLIZZARD COMING.
WOULD YOU FIND SHELTER
IN A TREE,
OR DO THE INTELLIGENT THING,
AND HEAD TO THE BOTTOM
OF THE HILL FOR A NICE
HOT BATH?

A clip shows monkeys in natural hot pools.

The announcer says OH MAN, THIS IS GOOD.
HEY QUIT SPLASHING.
THIRTY YEARS AGO,
A FEMALE SNOW MONKEY CALLED
TOKEEWA,
IS THOUGHT TO HAVE SEEN PEOPLE
BATHING IN THESE HOT POOLS.
UNLIKE ANY MONKEY BEFORE HER,
THE YOUNG TOKEEWA DECIDED TO
JOIN THEM.
HMM.
((music plays))
ARE YOU RIGHT THERE?
NOW THE WHOLE TROOP HAS LEARNED
TO KEEP WARM IN THE POOL,
IN A CLASSIC CASE OF MONKEY SEE,
MONKEY DO.
IT'S THIS GIANT INTELLECTUAL
LEAP THAT SETS THE SNOW MONKEY
APART FROM THE ANIMALS
THAT ARE FREEZING
IN THE SAME AREA.

(farting sound)

The announcer says OKAY, EVERYBODY OUT.

Alfie says ALRIGHT GUYS STILL TO COME ON
TODAY'S SHOW:
WE HAVE MORE CANINE CRAZINESS
IN DOG TRICKS,
LOADS OF LAUGHS
WITH BAD PUN PONY,
A TRUCKLOAD
OF ANIMAL AMAZINGNESS
IN CREATURE QUIZ,
SOME ASTONISHING ANIMAL FACTS
AND WE MEET OUR PET AND GUEST
AND HERE IS SOME HILARITY
FROM THE TWO BOBS.
ALL THAT STILL TO COME
ON
CREATURE MANIA.

The announcer says DID YOU KNOW... ..THERE ARE MORE THAN
325 HUMMINGBIRD SPECIES
IN THE WORLD.
WOAH!
HUMMINGBIRDS CAN FLY RIGHT,
LEFT, UP, DOWN, BACKWARDS,
AND EVEN UPSIDE DOWN.
WOW!
THEY ARE ALSO ABLE TO HOVER BY
FLAPPING THEIR WINGS
IN A FIGURE-EIGHT PATTERN.
HUMMINGBIRDS CANNOT WALK OR HOP,
THOUGH THEIR FEET CAN BE USED TO
SCOOT SIDEWAYS WHILE THEY
ARE PERCHED.
WOOHOO!

Kids say AND THAT'S... ..AN ANIMAL FACT.

Alfie says HUMMINGBIRDS ARE SO AMAZING,
AND SO BUSY.
I ACTUALLY FEEL A BIT EXHAUSTED
JUST WATCHING THAT.
YOU KNOW WHAT ELSE IS
EXHAUSTING?
HOW CUTE BUDDY IS.
I WONDER HOW DR. KATRINA
AND VERONICA ARE DOING WITH
TRAINING BUDDY TO SHAKE PAWS?
WELL LET'S FIND OUT:
IT'S DOG TRICKS.

Katrina says WELCOME BACK.
VERONICA AND I ARE TEACHING
LITTLE BUDDY TO SHAKE PAWS.
HE HAS DONE WELL
WITH THE FIRST PAW.
NOW WE ARE GOING TO DO
THE SECOND PAW.
SO AGAIN WE WANT HIM TO OFFER
THAT PAW NATURALLY
AND THEN HE GETS A TREAT.
SO PROBABLY HAVE THE TREATS
IN A DIFFERENT HAND TO BEFORE
AND PUT YOUR OTHER HAND OUT.
OKAY BUDDY.
SHOW HIM THE TREATS.

Veronica says BUDDY.

Katrina says ASK HIM TO SIT.
WELL BUDDY WHERE IS YOUR TREAT?

Veronica says SIT.

Katrina says THERE WE GO.

Veronica says NOW SHAKE HANDS.
GOOD BOY.

Katrina says NOW SIT AGAIN.
DROP IT DOWN.
SIT.

Veronica says SIT.

Katrina says YES.
NOW-- JUST GET HIM
TO SIT AGAIN.
SO WE JUST HAVE A LITTLE TOUCH.
YEP.

Veronica says SIT.

Katrina says YES BUDDY.

Veronica says SHAKE HANDS.
SHAKE HANDS.

Katrina says JUST HAND OUT.
ASK HIM TO SIT.

Veronica says GOOD BOY.

Katrina says JUST GENTLE.

Veronica says GOOD BOY.

Katrina says OKAY, WELL DONE BUDDY.
WE DO HAVE A LITTLE BIT
OF PRACTICE TO DO
BUT WE'LL KEEP WORKING ON IT.
WE WILL BE BACK WITH STEP THREE,
WHICH IS TO GET HIM COMFORTABLE
WITH ACTUALLY SHAKING.
THE SHAKING MOVEMENT AND HAVING
HIS PAW HELD.
WE'LL SEE YOU SOON.

Alfie says WE'LL CATCH UP WITH THEM
A BIT LATER.
BUT NOW IT'S TIME
FOR SOME BELLY HURTING,
SOME JAW ACHING, ROLLING
ON THE FLOOR LAUGHING.
WELL, SHE THINKS SO.
YES GIVE IT UP FOR OUR
FAVOURITE HORSE WHO HOWLS.
IT'S BAD PUN PONY.

A clip shows a brown pony galloping and neighing on a field.

Bad Pun Pony says WHAT DO YOU GET WHEN YOU CROSS
A COCKER SPANIEL, A POODLE
AND A ROOSTER?
A COCKERPOODLEDOO.
A BIRD ASKS A WAITER,
I'LL HAVE A BANANA MILKSHAKE
PLEASE, THE WAITER SAYS SURE
BUT WHY THE BIG HORSE?

Kids say BAD PUN PONY.
YAY.

Alfie says HILARIOUS.
MORE BAD PUN PONY NEXT TIME
BUT NOW, IT'S TIME
FOR SOMETHING A LITTLE BIT
DIFFERENT.
WARM UP YOUR BRAINS
AND GET ENGAGED CREATURE FANS,
IT'S TIME TO TEST
YOUR KNOWLEDGE IN...

A caption reads "Creature Quiz."

The announcer says WHICH OF THESE ANIMALS
HAS THE FASTEST TONGUE?
ERM, STICKY QUESTION.
IS IT A. THE TERMITE-MOUND
BUSTING ANT-SLURPING
AFRICAN ANTEATER?
EWE SLOPPY.
OR B. THE MASTER OF DISGUISE
AND COLOUR CHANGING
CHAMELEON?
MMM, SNEAKY.
OR IS IT C. THE EYEBALL LICKING
CEILING-SUCKER LOUNGE-ROOM
LOVING LIZARD THE GECKO?
AHH, CUTE.
WELL IF YOU THOUGH B
YOU'D BE CORRECT.
THE CHAMELEON HAS THE FASTEST
TONGUE.
THE CHAMELEON IS KNOWN
FOR ITS ABILITY TO BLEND INTO
ITS ENVIRONMENT
BUT IT'S WHEN IT STICKS OUT
ITS EXTREME TONGUE IT STANDS OUT
AS A WORLD CHAMPION.
IT USES THIS EXTRAORDINARY
APPENDAGE TO CATCH ANYTHING
FROM INSECTS TO SMALL BIRDS.
USING HIGH SPEED CAMERAS,
SCIENTISTS HAVE CALCULATED THAT
THE CHAMELEON'S TONGUE
ACCELERATES TO MORE THAN 200
KILOMETRES AN HOUR
IN ONLY TWENTY MILLISECONDS.
IN THEORY,
MUSCLES JUST CAN'T MOVE THAT
QUICKLY BUT THEN,
IT'S NOT THE MUSCLES THAT ARE
DOING THE MOVING.
THE SECRET TO THE CHAMELEON
TONGUE'S AMAZING SPEED COMES
FROM A MASS
OF ELASTIC COLLAGEN TISSUE THAT
STORES ENERGY.
SIMILAR TO A TAUT STRING
ON THE BOW OF AN ARROW.
MUSCLES IN THE TONGUE STRETCH
THIS ELASTIC CORD,
JUST LIKE AN ARM PULLING BACK
ON A BOW.
WHEN THE CHAMELEON LAUNCHES
ITS ATTACK,
THE COLLAGEN RELEASES ITS STORED
ENERGY,
CATAPULTING THE TONGUE FORWARD
LIKE AN ARROW INTO ITS TARGET.
HOWEVER, THIS TONGUE IS NO
ORDINARY ARROW.
THE CHAMELEON'S ABLE TO CONTORT
THE TIP
OF ITS TONGUE TO FORM A DEADLY
SUCTION SEAL AROUND ITS PREY,
SO THAT IT HUNTS WITH A STICKY
HARPOON.
AND IT'S POWERFUL.
THE SUCTION ON THE TONGUE
OF A FIFTY-GRAM CHAMELEON CAN
LIFT THE EQUIVALENT
OF A HUMAN MAN PICKING UP AN
EIGHT AND A HALF KILOGRAM SACK
OF POTATOES WITH HIS TONGUE.

Alfie says WHAT AMAZING CREATURES.
SO COOL.
ALL RIGHT CREATURE FANS STILL
TO COME ON TODAY'S SHOW:
AN AMAZING ANIMAL FACT,
WE MEET TODAY'S PET AND N TELL
GUESTS, IN THE HOUSE.
THERE'S AN ADORABLE ANIMAL
IN TOO CUTE,
PLUS SOME MUSINGS FROM OUR
FAVORITE BLACK AND WHITE BEAR
THE FANTASTIC PONDERING PANDA.
ALL THAT STILL TO COME
ON
CREATURE MANIA.

The announcer says DID YOU KNOW... ..THE FRIGATE BIRD
HAS THE LARGEST WINGSPAN
IN COMPARISON TO ITS BODY
OF ANY BIRD SPECIES
IN THE WORLD?
AND BOY DOES IT PUT THOSE WINGS
TO GOOD USE.
THE FRIGATE BIRD CAN STAY FLYING
IN THE AIR
FOR A WHOLE WEEK BEFORE LANDING
TO REST.
IN THAT SAME TIME PERIOD,
A COMMERCIAL AIRCRAFT
WOULD HAVE TO REFUEL AT LEAST
TEN TIMES.
FOR ANY OTHER BIRD WITH A LESSER
WING-TO-BODY RATIO THIS
REMARKABLE FEAT WOULD BE
IMPOSSIBLE.
AND THAT'S...

Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT.

Alfiie says OH, AND NOW CREATURE FRIENDS,
IT'S THE PART
OF THE SHOW I LOOK FORWARD TO.
IT'S TIME TO MEET A SPECIAL
GUEST AND THEIR PET, RIGHT HERE.
BUT FIRST THERE'S THIS.

A clip shows a walrus slapping another walrus with its flipper.

The slapped walrus says HEY.

The slapping walrus slaps it again.

The slapped walrus says HEY.

A male voice says HO HO HO.

Ac caption reads "It’s pet and tell."

Alfie sits in the tree house with Loki. Loki is around 10, with short straight blond hair and wears green shorts and a white T-shirt.

Alfie says INTRODUCING LOKI.
HE HAS BROUGHT IN HIS PET
DRAGONS TO SHOW US.
WELCOME TO THE SHOW LOKI.

Liki says THANKS RALPHIE.

Alfie says WHO ARE THESE LITTLE GUYS?

Loki says WELL, I HAVE GOT LIZZIE
AND HARLEY.

Alfie says CAN WE HAVE A LOOK AT THEM?

Loki says SURE.

He takes his pet dragons out of bucket.

Alfie says WOAH.

Loki says WOULD YOU LIKE TO HOLD HARLEY?

Alfie says YEAH SURE.

WOAH.

Loki says AND THIS IS LIZZIE.
THE ONE THAT IS THE MOST
MISCHIEF.

Alfie says WOW, THEY'RE AMAZING.
SO I'VE HEARD THAT THEY'RE
DRAGONS.

Loki says NUP.

Alfie says IS THAT WHAT THEY'RE REALLY
CALLED?
WHAT ARE THEY REALLY CALLED?

Loki says THEY'RE REALLY CALLED BEARDED
DRAGONS AND...

Alfie says BUT THEY'RE NOT ACTUAL DRAGONS.

Loki says NAH.

Alfie says SO THEY DON'T BREATHE FIRE?

Loki says NO.

Alfie says OKAY GOOD.
SO I AM NOT GOING TO GET BURNT?

Loki says NO.

Alfie says OH GOOD, PHEW.
BEARDED DRAGONS.
THE AVERAGE BEARDED DRAGON CAN
REACH UP TO TWENTY-TWO INCHES.
THIS REPTILE GETS ITS NAME DUE
TO THE SPINES ON ITS THROAT,
WHICH ENLARGES WHEN IT FEELS
THREATENED, RESEMBLING A BEARD.
BEARDED DRAGONS ARE OMNIVORES,
WHICH MEANS THEY CONSUME
BOTH PLANTS AND MEAT.
THEY ARE ABLE TO REGULATE THEIR
BODY TEMPERATURE
BY CHANGING THE SHADES
OF THE COLOUR OF THEIR SKIN
FROM LIGHT TO DARK.
THEY MAY LOOK SCARY
BUT THEY ARE GENTLE BY NATURE.
BEARDED DRAGONS.
SO DO THESE GUYS NEED A LOT
OF LOOKING AFTER?

Loki says UMM, YES.

Alfie says YEAH, HOW SO?
LIKE WHAT DO YOU FEED THEM?
CRICKETS, COCKROACHES,

Loki says UMM WORMS.

Alfie says SO WHAT ELSE DO YOU DO TO LOOK
AFTER THEM?

Loki says THEY'RE COLD BLOOD SO THEY NEED
TO STAY IN HOT PLACES
BUT YOU CAN'T LEAVE THEM.
IF IT'S REALLY HOT YOU CAN'T
LEAVE THEM OUT
FOR TOO LONG OTHERWISE THEY WILL
GET HOT
AND START OPENING THEIR MOUTHS
TO GET TO COOL DOWN.

Alfie says WOW.
THESE GUYS ARE LIKE LITTLE
DRAGONS.
LIKE LOOK AT THEIR CLAWS.
LOOK AT THEIR EYES.
THEY'RE LIKE PIERCING.
THEY'RE SO FIERCE YOU KNOW.
SO IF SOMEONE ELSE WAS LOOKING
TO GET A BEARDED DRAGON AS A PET
WOULD YOU RECOMMEND IT?

Loki says YEAH, I PROBABLY WOULD.

Alfie says NOT MANY PEOPLE CAN SAY THEY OWN
A DRAGON LET ALONE TWO.
THANK YOU FOR JOINING US
ON THE SHOW TODAY LOKI.

Loki says THANKS RALPHIE.

Alfie says AND THANK YOU
FOR INTRODUCING US TO HARLEY

Loki says NO WORRIES.
AND LIZZIE.

Alfie says CHECK THIS OUT.

A clip shows different animals in the island of Madagascar.

The announcer says THE ISLAND OF MADAGASCAR
IS TEEMING WITH CREATURES
AND SOME ARE CUTER
THAN OTHERS.
AHH, CHECK EM OUT THEY'RE
SO CUTE.
BUT NONE ARE CUTER THAN THESE
RING TAILED LEMURS.
EVERYTHING ABOUT THEM IS JUST
SO SUPER CUTE.
THEY ARE HIGHLY SOCIAL, SMART,
HAVE AWESOME FLUFFY TAILS,
CARRY THEIR BABIES
ON THEIR BACKS
AND LOVE TO CUDDLE,
AND THAT'S WHY THEY'RE JUST...

Kids say TOO CUTE.

Alfie says AHH SO CUTE.
ALL RIGHT CREATURE MANIACS,
ARE YOU FEELING CLEVER?
LET'S SEE IF WE CAN WORK
ON THOSE SUPER BRAINS OF YOURS,
AND FIND OUT SOME COOL STUFF.
IT'S TIME FOR SOME MORE
ASTOUNDING ANIMALS IN...

A caption reads "Creature Quiz."

The announcer says WHICH OF THESE ANIMALS USES
LESS ENERGY
THE FASTER IT MOVES?
IS IT A. THE SPEED FREAK
CHEETAH?
B. THE FRIENDLY DRAGONFLY?
C. THE CAREFREE KANGAROO?
IF YOU ANSWERED C,
THE KANGAROO
YOU'D BE CORRECT.
THE ARID AUSTRALIAN OUTBACK
IS HOME TO THE KANGAROO.
A JUMPING MOVER WITH FOUR LIMBS,
BUT WHO MOVES FAST USING
ONLY TWO.

A rodent in a burrow says OKAY.

The announcer says AND THE MOST UNUSUAL THING ABOUT
ITS LOCOMOTION
IS THAT THE FASTER IT MOVES
THE LESS ENERGY IT USES.
AT SLOW SPEEDS THE KANGAROO
MOVES BY BALANCING
ON ITS FRONT PAWS AND TAIL,
WHILE SWINGING ITS BACK LEGS
FORWARD LIKE A PENDULUM.
AS THE KANGAROO SPEEDS UP,
ITS FRONT PAWS BECOME
UNNECESSARY AS THE GIANT ELASTIC
TENDONS
IN ITS BACK LEGS SWING
INTO ACTION.
THAT'S WHY ONCE A ROO GETS
MOVING IT TAKES VERY LITTLE
ADDITIONAL ENERGY
FOR IT TO KEEP GOING.
A JUMPING KANGAROO STORES
AND RE-USES SEVENTY PERCENT
OF ITS ENERGY, WHEREAS HUMANS
CAN MANAGE ONLY TWENTY PERCENT.
IMAGINE WHAT MISCHIEF HUMANS
WOULD GET UP TOO
IF THEY COULD JUMP LIKE
A KANGAROO.

A caption reads "Two Bobs."

White Llama Bob says HEY BOB?

Brown Llama Bob says YEP?

White Llama Bob says DO YOU WANT TO SEE
A MAGIC TRICK?

Brown Llama Bob says NO.

White Llama Bob says ONE, TWO, THREE, POOF.

Brown Llama Bob says WOW, WHERE'D YOU GO BOB?

White Llama Bob says I'M HERE.

Brown Llama Bob says WOW, HOW'D YOU DO THAT?

White Llama Bob says I'M BOBERINO,
THE FAMOUS MAGICAL BOB.
THREE, TWO, ONE OH POOF.

Brown Llama Bob says OH BOB STOP THAT.
STOP IT BOB.

White Llama Bob says POOF I AM BACK.

Brown Llama Bob says BOB.

White Llama Bob says POOF.

Brown Llama Bob says STOP THE POOF.

White Llama Bob says POOF.
POOF, POOF.

Brown Llama Bob says STOP IT.
STOP IT BOB.

White Llama Bob says NO POOF.

Brown Llama Bob says BOB?
BOB?

White Llama Bob says BOB HELP.

Brown Llama Bob says WHERE ARE YA BOB?

White Llama Bob says I AM STUCK IN THE TREE.

Brown Llama Bob says I'LL GET THE CHAINSAW.

White Llama Bob says YOU'LL GET THE WHAT?

Alfie says AW, THOSE BOBS ARE BRILLIANT.
WELL CREATURE MANIACS,
WE HAVE SO MUCH MORE STILL
TO COME ON THE SHOW.
WE GOT ANOTHER INCREDIBLE
ANIMAL FACT,
SOME FASCINATING PONDERING
FROM OUR ROLY-POLY PAL
THE ONE,
THE ONLY PONDERING PANDA.
AND TODAY'S FINAL VISIT
TO DR. KATRINA FOR STEP 3
IN DOG TRICKS.
SO, ALL THAT STILL TO COME
RIGHT HERE ON
CREATURE MANIA.

The announcer says DID YOU KNOW?
RHINO BEETLE HORNS MIGHT
LOOK AWKWARD
BUT THEY ARE ACTUALLY
QUITE LIGHT.
THEY ARE MADE
OF CHITIN JUST LIKE THE REST
OF THE BEETLES' EXOSKELETON
AND ARE HOLLOW
AND DRY WITH NO BLOOD OR MUSCLE
IN THEM AT ALL.
THEY MAY LOOK INTIMIDATING
BUT THEIR CLAWS
AND HORNS AREN'T STRONG ENOUGH
TO HURT HUMANS.
ALSO ONLY MALE RHINO BEETLES
HAVE HORNS.
AND THAT'S...

Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT.

Alfie says WHAT A COOL FACT RIGHT?
OKAY CREATURE FANS,
TIME TO GET A BIT PHILOSOPHICAL.
TIME FOR SOME MUSINGS,
SOME WONDERINGS, SOME THOUGHTS
AND SOME PONDERINGS
FROM OUR FAVORITE BLACK
AND WHITE, ROLY-POLY,
BAMBOO EATING, PONDERING PANDA.

Kids say PONDERING PANDA! THE PANDA THAT LIKES TO PONDER.

A panda says HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT
ABOUT BALLOONS?
I MEAN,
REALLY THOUGHT ABOUT BALLOONS?
HUMANS GIVE THEM TO PEOPLE
ON THEIR BIRTHDAYS TO MAKE THEM
FEEL GOOD BUT WHEN YOU THINK
ABOUT IT,
BALLOONS ARE ACTUALLY
REALLY GROSS.
THEY'RE BASICALLY JUST PLASTIC
SACKS FULL
OF SOMEONE'S OLD BREATH.
AND THEY BURST.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY.
HERE, HAVE A STINKY BREATH BOMB.

Alfie says AND THAT MY FRIENDS WAS
PONDERING PANDA.
OKAY, IT WAS WEIRD.
MOVING ON.
OKAY CREATURE MANIACS IT'S TIME
TO HEAD OVER AND SEE IF VERONICA
AND BUDDY CAN NAIL THE FINAL
PART OF SHAKE PAWS
IN DOG TRICKS.

Katrina says VERONICA AND I ARE TEACHING
BUDDY TO SHAKE PAWS
SO WE HAVE GOT HIM COMFORTABLE
NOW OFFERING ONE PAW
AND THEN OFFERING THE OTHER PAW
AND NOW WE NEED TO GET HIM TO
GET COMFORTABLE
WITH ACTUALLY SHAKING PAWS.
SO I'LL GET YOU THE TREAT AGAIN.
NOW ASK HIM TO PUT A PAW OUT
AND THEN IF HE OFFERS IT TO YOU
JUST HOLD IT, JUST FOR A SECOND.
YOU DON'T WANT TO STRESS HIM
AT ALL.
JUST FOR A SECOND,
THEN HE GETS THE TREAT.
OKAY I SHOULD ADD THAT IF YOU
ARE DOING ANY TRAINING AT HOME
PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU ALWAYS
HAVE ADULT SUPERVISION.
ALL RIGHT.
YOU READY TO GO?
OKAY, CALL HIM TO YOU.

Veronica says BUDDY.

Katrina says SHOW HIM THE TREAT.

Veronica says SHAKE HANDS.
GOOD BOY.

Katrina says PERFECT.
TREATS NOW.
WELL DONE.
YOU GUYS DID GREAT.

Veronica says THANK YOU.

Katrina says PROUD OF HIM?

Veronica says YES.

Katrina says HE IS A GOOD LITTLE MAN
ISN'T HE?

Veronica says YEAH DEFINITELY.

Katrina says WHAT WAS YOUR BEST PART
ABOUT TODAY?

Veronica says I THINK THE BEST PART ABOUT
TODAY IS BUDDY COULD LEARN
HOW TO SHAKE HANDS.

Katrina says AND HE DID A MIGHTY FINE
JOB TOO.
I HOPE YOU HAVE ENJOYED BUDDY'S
DOG TRICK.
I WILL BE BACK NEXT TIME
WITH ANOTHER ONE.

Alfie says THANKS KATRINA.
AND WELL DONE VERONICA
AND BUDDY, YOU GUYS NAILED IT.
WHAT A CLEVER POOCH,
HE'LL BE DOING SECRET HANDSHAKES
IN NO TIME.
WELL, THAT'S IT FOR THE SHOW
CREATURE MANIACS.
I HOPE YOU GUYS ENJOYED IT.
HOW CUTE WERE THOSE LEMURS?
AND WOW, SNOW MACAQUES
WHO KNOW HOW TO RELAX
IN A HOT BATH, INCREDIBLE.
IF YOU'RE LOOKING
FOR MORE CREATURE CRAZINESS
I GOT YOU COVERED,
AND REMEMBER: ANIMALS ARE
