(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.

Alfie says HEY, HEY CREATURE MANIACS,
WELCOME TO THE SHOW THAT'S ALL
ABOUT OUR ANIMAL FRIENDS,
AND ITS COMPLETELY CREATURE
CRAZY, IT'S CREATURE MANIA.
ON TODAY'S EPISODE WE'VE GOT
SOME CRITTERS

PLUS, LOTS, LOTS, MORE.
BUT FIRST LET'S CHECK
IN WITH DR. KATRINA
AND SEE WHAT TRICK WE'LL BE
LEARNING TODAY
AND WHO SHE HAS COMING ALONG
TO LEARN IT, IN...

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'M DR. KATRINA
AND I AM JOINED BY AUSTRALIA'S
SMARTEST DOGS, THE WONDER DOGS.
AND TODAY WE'RE GOING TO SHOW
YOU HOW TO TEACH YOUR DOG TO DO
A TUNNEL RUN.
SKETCH IS GOING TO DEMONSTRATE
THIS FOR US.
LET'S LEARN A BIT ABOUT
HER FIRST.

A clip shows a white and golden brown dog.

Katrina says MEET SKETCH,
SHE'S SEVEN YEARS OLD.
SHE'S KNOWN
FOR HAVING AN UNUSUAL COAT COVER
AND DIFFERENT COLOURED EYES.
HER NICKNAMES ARE SKITS
AND SKIDDITCH.
SKETCH IS THE FREE SPIRIT
OF THE WONDER DOG TEAM:
SHE'S SOMETIMES NAUGHTY
AND HAS LOTS OF CHARACTER.
HER HOBBIES, WELL THERE'S
SO MANY.
THEY INCLUDE CHASING BIRDS,
DIVING INTO THE DAM
AND RUNNING AROUND LIKE CRAZY.
HER FAVOURITE TRICKS ARE
JUMPING, DOING HANDSTANDS
AND SKIPPING.
HER NAUGHTIEST DEED:
JUMPING UP ONTO THE KITCHEN
BENCH TO REACH FOOD.
PET HATES: WELL SHE HATES HAVING
SMELLY THINGS WASHED OFF HER.
THREE WORDS TO DESCRIBE SKETCH:
QUIRKY, MISCHIEVOUS
AND ENERGETIC.
AND NOW LET'S SEE SKETCH
DEMONSTRATE.

A caption reads "Tunnel Run."

Katrina says THE TUNNEL RUN IS A GREAT
ACTIVITY FOR DOGS OF ALL AGES
AND ABILITY.
Katrina has Sketch run through a tunnel.

She says GOOD GIRL.
GOOD GIRL.
GOOD GIRL.

Katrina says IT'S A FUN THING TO DO
IN YOUR BACKYARD
AND IT HELPS KEEP YOUR DOG FIT.
YES.
TUNNEL.
HERE.
TUNNEL.
WELL NOW WE'VE SEEN AN EXPERT
DEMONSTRATION,
LET'S GO SEE WHO'S HERE TO TRAIN
THEIR DOG.
I AM HERE TODAY WITH MILES
AND HIS GORGEOUS DOG DJ.
TELL ME A LITTLE BIT ABOUT DJ.

Miles is around 10, with short wavy blond hair and wears blue shorts and a turquoise T-shirt.

Miles says A REALLY FUN DOG TO PLAY WITH
AND HE IS A POODLE CROSS
WITH A GOLDEN RETRIEVER.

Katrina says HOW OLD IS HE?

Miles says TWELVE MONTHS OLD.

Katrina says WHAT'S THE BEST PART
OF HAVING A DOG?

Mile says WHEN YOU ARE ALONE YOU CAN HAVE
HIM TO PAT.

Katrina says WOULD YOU LIKE TO LEARN SOME
TRICKS?

Mile says YES PLEASE.

Katrina says EXCELLENT.
WE'LL GET TO IT.
TODAY MILES
AND I ARE GOING TO TEACH DJ TO
DO THE TUNNEL RUN.
NOW MILES FIRST STEP WITH THIS
IS JUST TO GET DJ USED TO BEING
AROUND THE TUNNEL BECAUSE IT
FEELS A BIT STRANGE
AND IT SOUNDS A BIT STRANGE.
SO THE BEST WAY TO DO THAT
I AM GOING TO GIVE YOU
QUITE A FEW TREATS.
POP THEM IN.
THAT'S IT.
GOOD BOY DJ.
SO WHAT WE WILL DO AS HE GOES IN
FOR THE TREATS
MAKE A BIT OF NOISE.
DO YOU WANT ANOTHER ONE DJ?
THERE YOU GO.
YOU CAN MAKE A BIT OF NOISE.
GOOD BOY.
SO HE IS NOT AT ALL BOTHERED BY
THAT, WHICH IS GREAT
SO THAT'S THE FIRST STEP.
WE'LL KEEP WORKING
ON GETTING HIM COMFORTABLE
AND THEN WE WILL MOVE TO STEP
TWO SHORTLY WHICH IS TO GET YOU
TO COME CRAWLING UP THROUGH
FROM THE OTHER SIDE.
OKAY,
WE'LL BE BACK SOON WITH THAT.

Back in the bamboo tree house, Alfie says IS IT ME OR DOES DJ LOOK
A LITTLE BIT TOO BIG
FOR THAT TUNNEL?
I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE HOW THEY GET
ON WITH THEIR TRAINING.
WE'LL CHECK BACK
IN WITH THEM LATER ON.
BUT FIRST IT'S TIME
FOR AN ANIMAL FACT.

An announcer says DID YOU KNOW."
A CAMEL WILL EAT ANYTHING,
EVEN IF IT MEANS PICKING OVER
CARCASES OR EATING FISH.

A fish says HOLEY MOLY.

The announcer says EVERYTHING THAT ENTERS THE MOUTH
IS GROUND UP BY POWERFUL MOLARS
BEFORE HEADING DOWN TO THE
CAMEL'S THREE CHAMBERED STOMACH.
AND THEN IT COMES BACK UP AGAIN.

A rodent says EW.

The announcer says THE CAMEL REGURGITATES
HALF-DIGESTED FOOD BECAUSE
CHEWING IT TWICE GIVES
DOUBLE EXPOSURE
TO DIGESTIVE ENZYMES IN SALIVA
MAKING HIS FOOD EXTRA DELICIOUS
AND TWICE AS NUTRITIOUS.
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 ARTICULATE,
THEY'RE VOCAL,
THEY'RE MOUTHY
AND THEY'RE WORDY.
WHO ELSE COULD I BE TALKING
ABOUT?
IT'S TIME FOR TWO BOBS.

A caption reads "Two Bobs."

Crocodile Bob 1 says WE'RE NOT JUST ABOUT BEING
VEGANS HERE AT MEAT EATERS
ANONYMOUS ARE WE?

Crocodile Bob 2 says WHAT'S VEGAN BOB?

Crocodile Bob 1 says WELL VEGANS DON'T EAT ANY ANIMAL
PRODUCTS BOB.

Crocodile Bob 2 says WE DON'T?

Crocodile Bob 1 says AS I WAS SAYING WE'RE ALSO ABOUT
REDUCING OUR WASTE.

Crocodile Bob 2 says OH YEAH.
HOW DO WE DO THAT?

Crocodile Bob 1 says RECYCLING, COMPOSTING
AND RE-USING.

Crocodile Bob 2 says OH THAT REMINDS ME I JUST
REMEMBERED
WHERE I RECYCLED THAT
BUSH PIG CARCASS.
OH SEE YOU LATER.

Crocodile Bob 1 says DON'T DO IT BOB.
REMEMBER THE STEPS.

Crocodile Bob 2 says I REMEMBER STEP ONE FIND
CARCASS, STEP TWO EAT CARCASS.

Crocodile Bob 1 says HOW ABOUT YOU EAT AN AVOCADO?
YEAH, A BIG JUICY AVOCADO.

Crocodile Bob 2 says I WILL DO THAT IF IT'S AN
AVA-CARCASS.

Crocodile Bob 1 says I THOUGHT I KNEW YOU.

Crocodile Bob 2 says YOU DON'T KNOW ME.
I'M ANONYMOUS.

Crocodile Bob 1 says BOB, BOB, BOB.

Crocodile Bob 2 says ANONYMOUS, ANONYMOUS,
ANONYMOUS.

Alfie says THOSE TWO BOBS.
WE'LL HEAR FROM THEM AGAIN
A BIT LATER IN THE SHOW.
BUT NOW IT'S TIME TO PUT YOUR
CREATURE COMPREHENSION TO THE
TEST AND FEED THAT BRAIN
OF YOURS, THROW
ON YOUR THINKING CAP.
IT'S TIME FOR CREATURE QUIZ.

The announcer says WHICH OF THESE ANIMALS WAS ONCE
THOUGHT TO BE EXTINCT?
IS IT A THE CUTE
AND FURRY AQUATIC TENREC?

A clip shows a tenrec eating a worm.

The announcer says OH WOW YOU SURE LIKE WORMS.
IS IT B THE ROAR-TASTIC LION?

The lion roars.

The announcer says OH OKAY, I'M MOVING ALONG NO
NEED TO GET ANGRY BUDDY.
OR IS IT C THE HAMMERHEAD
SHARK?
IF YOU ANSWERED A THE AQUATIC
TENREC YOU WOULD BE RIGHT,
THEY WERE ONCE THOUGHT
TO BE EXTINCT.
THIS FURRY LITTLE FISHER LIVES
ON THE ISLAND OF MADAGASCAR.
IT BELONGS TO THE SAME FAMILY AS
OTHER CUTIES' SUCH AS THE
OPOSSUM, THE OTTER, THE SHREW
AND THE HEDGEHOGS.
IT RESIDES
IN SMALL BURROWS NEAR WATERWAYS
AND LIKE MOST
OF THE OTHER FISHERS,
DOES IT'S HUNTING AT NIGHT.
AND WHEN THE SUN GOES DOWN...

A clip shows a tenrec jumping high.

The announcer says THE TENREC EMERGES TO LOOK
FOR HIS FAVOURITE SUPPER:
INSECTS.

The tenrec says OH YEAH.

The announcer says IT HAS A STOUT BROWN BODY
AND IS ROUGHLY THE SIZE
OF A SMALL RAT.

The tenrec says RING-A-DING-DING.

The announcer says ITS POWERFUL HIND LEGS AID ITS
SWIMMING
AND ITS WEBBED FEET HELP PROPEL
IT THROUGH WATER.
LIKE THE FISHING MOUSE ITS EYES
AND EARS ARE VERY SMALL,
WITH LARGE WHISKERS,
WHICH RESEARCHERS BELIEVE
ARE USED TO DETECT VIBRATIONS
ON THE WATER SURFACE.

The tenrec says HOP-A-DOOP.

The announcer says THE TENREC IS SO RARE THAT
IT'S ONLY FOUND
IN TEN PLACES ALONG STREAMS
IN MADAGASCAR.
AND IT'S SO HARD TO FIND
THAT RESEARCHERS KNOW
ALMOST NOTHING ABOUT THEM.
SNEAKY.
SCIENTISTS HAVE FOUND THE
AQUATIC TENREC VERY DIFFICULT TO
STUDY, WHICH MEANS THAT
NOBODY KNOWS FOR SURE
WHAT IS THREATENING
THE SPECIES.

A clip shows a tenrec catching a crab.

The announcer says OH, HANG IN THERE BUDDY.

The tenrec says DO-PA-DO.

Alfie says ALL RIGHT GUYS, STILL TO COME
ON TODAY'S SHOW.
WE HAVE MORE CANINE CRAZINESS
IN DOG TRICKS,
LOADS OF LAUGHS
WITH BAD PUN PONY,
AND 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?
PRAIRIE DOGS BUILD BURROWS
THREE METERS BELOW THE SURFACE
AND CREATE THEIR VERY OWN
AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM.

A prairie dog says WELL YOU DON'T SEE THAT
EVERY DAY.

The announcer says THE MOUNDS AT THE OPENINGS
OF PRAIRIE DOG BURROWS ARE BUILT
AT DIFFERENT HEIGHTS.
BECAUSE HIGHER PLACES ARE
WINDIER,
ATMOSPHERIC PRESSURE IS REDUCED
AT THE MOUTH
OF THE TOP ENTRANCE.
THIS EFFECTIVELY SUCKS AIR OUT
OF THE TUNNEL.
MEANWHILE AT THE LOWER MOUND,
THE RELATIVELY HIGHER PRESSURE
FORCES AIR DOWN INTO THE BURROW,
WHICH COOLS EVERYONE OFF.
AND THAT'S...

Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT

Alfie says NOW I LOVE PRAIRIE DOGS, A LOT.
BUT I ALSO LOVE GIANT FLUFFY
CURLY DOGS LIKE DJ,
HE'S LIKE A GIANT WOOLLY
PRAIRIE DOG,
IF THEY HAD LONG EARS TOO,
SORT OF.
ANYWAY, LET'S HEAD BACK
TO DOG TRICKS
AND CHECK OUT HOW MILES
AND DJ ARE DOING
IN LEARNING THE TUNNEL RUN.
IT'S DOG TRICKS, STEP TWO.

Katrina says WELCOME BACK.
I'M HERE WITH MILES AND DJ
AND WE'RE TEACHING DJ
TO DO THE TUNNEL RUN.
OUR FIRST STEP WAS JUST GETTING
HIM USED TO THE SOUND AND FEEL
OF THE TUNNEL.
HE HAS DONE PRETTY WELL
HASN'T HE?
DO YOU THINK WE CAN GET HIM TO
GO THROUGH?

Miles says YEAH.

Katrina says OKAY WHAT YOU'RE GOING TO DO,
I AM GOING TO GIVE YOU A COUPLE
OF REALLY YUMMY TREATS.
THAT'S HIS FAVOURITE.
NOW GO UP TO THE OTHER END.
CRAWL IN A LITTLE WAY,
OFFER HIM THE TREAT
AND THEN CRAWL HIM BACK.
OKAY, BRING HIM OUT.
OKAY ARE YOU READY DJ?
HEAD UNDER.
CALL HIM.

Miles says COME ON D.J.

GOOD BOY.

Katrina says OFFER THE TREAT.
NOW GO BACK OUT.
RIGHT THROUGH.
STEP BACK
SO HE HAS GOT ROOM TO COME OUT.
GO BACK A LITTLE WAY,
CALL HIM OUT.

Miles says DJ.

Katrina says GOOD BOY.
WELL DONE.
YOU WILL FIND THE MORE YOU
PRACTICE THAT THE FASTER
HE WILL GO.
SO HE DID WELL RIGHT?

Miles says YEAH.

Katrina says HE SURE DID.
WE WILL BE BACK WITH STEP THREE,
WHICH IS TO STRETCH OUT
THE TUNNEL
AND SEE IF WE CAN GET DJ
RUNNING THROUGH IT.
SEE YOU SOON.

Alfie says MORE OF THAT LATER.
AND NOW MY FRIENDS,
TIME FOR SOME SNICKERS
AND SNICKERING, SOME SNORTING
AND CHORTLING
WITH OUR FAVOURITE FUNNY HORSE,
OR AT LEAST SHE THINKS SO,
GIVE IT UP FOR THE ONE,
THE ONLY...

A caption reads "It’s bad pun pony!"

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

Bad Pun Pony says WHY DO SHARKS LIVE
IN SALT WATER?
BECAUSE PEPPER MAKES THEM
SNEEZE.
BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE.
WHAT DO YOU CALL AN EXPLODING
MONKEY?
A BABOOM.

Kids say BAD PUN PONY, YEAH.

Alfie says SHE'S A CRACK UP.
WE'LL HAVE MORE BAD PUN PONY
FOR YOU NEXT TIME BUT NOW,
IT'S TIME FOR SOMETHING
A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT.
ENGAGE YOUR BRAINS
AND TEST YOUR KNOWLEDGE,
LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT ANOTHER
CREATURE QUIZ.

The announcer says WHICH OF THESE ANIMALS
HAS THE SMALLEST MOUTH?
IS IT A THE ONLY ARCTIC PARROT,
THE KEA?
B THE COBRA?
YIKES.
OR C THE ANTEATER?
IF YOU GUESSED C,
THE ANTEATER YOU'D BE RIGHT.
THEY HAVE THE SMALLEST MOUTH.
THE SOUTH AMERICAN ANTEATER HAS
EVOLVED SOME WEIRD FEATURES:
AN INSANELY BUSHY TAIL,
CLAW PAWS AND A LONG,
LONG SNOUT WITH A TINY MOUTH.
WHY?
BECAUSE SHE SPENDS A LARGE PART
OF HER DAY EATING NOTHING
BUT TINY TERMITES.
THAT LONG SNOUT ALSO COMES
WITH A SERIOUS SENSE OF SMELL
AND IT'S FOREARMS AND CLAWS
ARE SO POWERFUL THAT
A GIANT ANTEATER CAN RIP OPEN
A MASSIVE TERMITE MOUND
OR ANT HILL WITH A SINGLE BLOW
OF ITS PAW.
BUT IT'S CAREFUL NOT TO
COMPLETELY DESTROY THE NEST
SO IT CAN COME BACK
FOR A SNACK LATER.
THE ANTEATER'S MOUTH MAY ONLY BE
THE WIDTH OF A PENCIL,
BUT IT CAN STRETCH BACK MORE
THAN HALF A METRE ALONG THAT
ENORMOUS SNOUT.
AND BECAUSE IT'S MOUTH IS
DESIGNED FOR ONE THING... ..TO SEEK AND DESTROY ANTS
AND TERMITES THERE'S NO NEED
FOR TEETH.
ALL IT HAS TO DO IS ROLL OUT
A TONGUE THAT CAN EXTEND
MORE THAN HALF A METER DOWN
A TERMITE TUNNEL.
IT'S COVERED IN STICKY SPIT
AND CAN BE FLICKED IN
AND OUT 150 TIMES A MINUTE.
THE ANTEATER CAN SLURP UP TO
30,000 TERMITES PER DAY,
WHICH IS WHAT IT NEEDS
TO STAY ALIVE.
BECAUSE IT HAS NO TEETH IT USES
POWERFUL STOMACH MUSCLES
TO GRIND UP THE INSECTS.
IT'S DEVELOPED A TOLERANCE
FOR THE NORMALLY TOXIC ANTS.
ITS THICK COAT ALSO HELPS TO
AVOID ATTACK
FROM SMALLER INSECTS.
THE ANTEATER PROVES THAT WHEN IT
COMES TO EVOLUTIONARY SUCCESS
IT'S NOT ALL ABOUT
HOW WIDE YOUR SMILE IS.

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
FAVOURITE BLACK AND WHITE BEAR
THE FANTASTIC PONDERING PANDA.
ALL THAT STILL TO COME
ON
CREATURE MANIA.

The announcer says DID YOU KNOW? ...THE ARGENTINEAN
WIDE MOUTHED FROG HAS AN EXTRA
SET OF TEETH ON THE ROOF
OF ITS MOUTH.
FINELY CONED SHAPE TEETH ARE NOT
FOR CHEWING BUT FOR HOLDING.
THAT MEANS ONCE THE FROG TAKES
A BITE
OF SOMETHING IT'S HARD
TO LET GO.
IT'S SO AGGRESSIVE THAT IT
WILL BITE ANYTHING THAT COMES
NEAR IT, EVEN OTHER
WIDE MOUTHED FROGS.
THESE FEROCIOUS FROGS ARE
SO STUBBORN THEY'LL KEEP EATING
UNTIL THEY RUPTURE THEIR
STOMACHS.
AND THAT'S...

Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT.

Alfie says BOOM.
GREAT FACT.
AND NOW FOR THE PART
OF THE SHOW I ALWAYS LOOK
FORWARD TO: TIME TO MEET
A SPECIAL GUEST AND THEIR PET,
RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW.
BUT FIRST THERE'S THIS.

A black dog in a blue hooded with human hands eats cereal from a bowl and wipes its snout.

(SLURPING SOUNDS)
((MUSIC PLAYS))

A caption reads "It’s Pet and Tell."

Alfie says INTRODUCING HANNAH.
SHE'S BROUGHT IN HER AMAZING
PET TO SHOW US.
HELLO HANNAH.

Hanna is around 10, with shoulder length straight blond hair with a white bow. She wears blue shorts and a red T-shirt.

She says HELLO ALFIE.

Alfie says SO AHH, WHO IS IN THE BOX?

Hannah says HERSHEY MY BUNNY.

Alfie says HERSHEY YOUR BUNNY.
SO WHAT KIND
OF BUNNY IS HERSHEY?

Hannah says UMM, SHE IS A CHOCOLATE BUNNY
AND SHE IS A MINI LOP.

Alfie says HE IS A MINI LOP WITH
A CHOCOLATE COLOUR.

Hannah says YEP.

Alfie says SO DOES HE TASTE LIKE CHOCOLATE?

Hannah says NO.

Alfie says NO.
WELL YOU SAID CHOCOLATE MINI LOP
SO I THOUGHT
OH MAYBE HE TASTES
LIKE CHOCOLATE.

Hannah says I WOULD NEVER TASTE A BUNNY.

Alfie says OKAY.
MINI LOP RABBIT.
MINI LOPS ARE ONE
OF THE MOST POPULAR BREED
OF RABBIT IN THE WORLD.
IT'S SMALL SIZE AND FLOPPY EARS
CERTAINLY MAKE IT APPEALING
AND MANY FANCIERS FALL
FOR THE CHARMS
OF THIS CUTE BUNNY.
THE MOST COMMON COLOURS ARE
BLUE, BLACK AND BROWN.
THE MINI LOP IS BRIGHT, CHEERFUL
AND PLAYFUL.
RABBITS DON'T NATURALLY EAT
CARROTS.
THAT'S A MYTH.
A RABBIT'S DIET CONSISTS MAINLY
OF DARK LEAFY GREENS
AND SPECIAL PELLETS.
CARROT AND APPLE ARE TOO HIGH
IN SUGAR
AND SHOULD ONLY BE GIVEN
AS A TREAT.
MINI LOPS CAN LIVE FROM FIVE
TO TEN YEARS.
MINI LOP RABBIT.
SO WHAT DO YOU DO TO LOOK AFTER
HERSHEY?

Hannah says I FEED HIM AND I BRING HIM
WATER TOO.

Alfie says HE ALSO LOOKS LIKE HE LIKES
TO EAT HAY.

Hannah says YEAH HE DOES TOO.

Alfie says ARE THERE ANY FOODS YOU CAN'T
FEED HIM?

Hanna says WELL WE CAN'T FEED HERSHEY MEAT.

Alfie says SO WHY WOULD YOU RECOMMEND
GETTING A PET BUNNY?

Hannah says BECAUSE THEY ARE NICE,
THEY DON'T BITE SOMETIMES
AND THEY'RE CUTE
AND IT WOULD BE BAD
IF THEY DIDN'T HAVE AN OWNER.

Alfie says SO YOU RECOMMEND IT
BUT MAKE SURE YOU GIVE THEM LOVE
OR A FRIEND?

Hannah says YEAH LIKE OR A GIRLFRIEND YEAH.
YEAH.

Alfie says THEY LIKE COMPANY.

Hannah says YEAH.

Alfie says WELL THANK YOU SO MUCH
FOR COMING
ON THE SHOW TODAY HANNAH
AND BRINGING
IN YOUR CHOCOLATE RABBIT.
HE IS SUPER CUTE.
YOU SURE HE DOESN'T TASTE
LIKE CHOCOLATE?

Hannah says YEAH.

Alfie says YEAH?
AND NOW CHECK THIS OUT.

The announcer says FLOWERS ARE ADORABLE,
BUT DO YOU KNOW WHAT'S EVEN
MORE ADORABLE?
THESE LITTLE GUYS THAT LIVE
ON FLOWERS.
THEY'RE CALLED HONEY POSSUMS,
AND THEY'RE ONE
OF THE SMALLEST MAMMALS
IN THE WORLD.
THEY'RE TINY.
LIKE SUPER TINY.
AN ADULT HONEY POSSUM ONLY
WEIGHS THE SAME AS
TWO TEASPOON OF SUGAR.
AND THEY SURVIVE COMPLETELY
ON NECTAR AND POLLEN.
YOU COULD SAY THEY SURVIVE
ON FLOWER POWER
AND THAT'S WHY WE THINK
THEY'RE...

Kids say TOO CUTE.

Alfie says HA HA.
THAT WAS SO CUTE.
ALRIGHT CREATURE MANIACS,
IT'S TIME FOR A CHANGE OF PACE.
WE'RE GOING TO STRETCH
OUR BRAINS
AND FIND OUT SOME FANTASTICALLY
AMAZING THINGS
ABOUT SOME FANTASTICALLY
AMAZING ANIMALS.
IT'S...

A caption reads "Creature Quiz."

The announcer says WHICH OF THESE ANIMALS
HAS THE STRONGEST BITE?
IS IT A THE KING OF THE JUNGLE,
THE LION?
B THE CUNNING CROCODILE?
DON'T MISTAKE THESE GUYS
FOR A LAZY LOG.
OR IS IT C THE HILARIOUS
HYENAS?
IF YOU ANSWERED B,
YOU ARE CORRECT.
THE CROCODILE HAS THE STRONGEST
BITE.
POWERED BY ENORMOUS MUSCLES,
THE AUSTRALIAN SALTWATER
CROCODILE HAS THE BITE FORCE
OF 1250 KILOGRAMS
PER SQUARE CENTIMETRE,
WHICH IS ALMOST THREE TIMES AS
MUCH AS AN ADULT LION.

A lion says OH REALLY?

The announcer says HIDING IN THE WATER WAITING
FOR YOUR LUNCH TO ARRIVE MAY
SEEM LIKE A SIMPLE HUNTING
TECHNIQUE
BUT CROCODILES HAVE TURNED IT
INTO AN ART FORM.
THEY CAN SPEND UP TO A MONTH
WATCHING AND WAITING,
WITH EYES AND NOSE
JUST ABOVE THE WATER,
CROCODILES DO THEIR FAMOUS
IMPERSONATION OF A FLOATING LOG.
BUT WHEN IT'S TIME TO CLOSE IN
FOR THE KILL, CROCS DISAPPEAR.
SCIENTISTS BELIEVE THAT CROCS
FEEL THEIR WAY FORWARD,
TIPTOEING SLOWLY TOWARDS
THEIR PREY.
CROCODILES BECOME FAMILIAR
WITH THE RIVERBED
AND CAN READ IT LIKE A MAP.
THIS BRINGS THEM UP RIGHT NEXT
TO PREY...
UNTIL...

A crocodile clears its throat.

Penguin Bob 1 says BOB AND BOB HERE COMING
TO YOU LIVE
FROM THE WORLD BELLY FLOP
CHAMPIONSHIPS
AT THE ANTARCTIC
AQUATIC CENTRE.
OR AAC AS WE CALL IT.

Penguin Bob 2 says THAT'S RIGHT BOB AND A LOT
OF COMPETITORS ARE A BIT
DISAPPOINTED BY THE LACK
OF BOUNCE ON THE ICE,
AIN'T THEY BOB?

Penguin Bob 1 says SURE ARE BOB.
THE ICE IS A LITTLE STIFF.
IT HAS BEEN MAKING FOR SOME
VERY PAINFUL LANDINGS.

Penguin Bob 2 says YOU SAID IT.
LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT THE RUSSIAN
BOB BOBORENKO
WHO TOOK A BIG WALLOP
IN HIS EARLIER FINAL.
WOW.

Penguin Bob 1 says HE'S BEEN TAKEN BY A KILLER
WHALE.
THAT'S GOING TO HURT
IN THE MORNING.

Penguin Bob 2 says AND A LITTLE IN THE AFTERNOON.

Penguin Bob 1 says LOOKS LIKE THOSE WHALES ARE
RUNNING THEIR OWN COMPETITION.
OH HE'S BACK.
WOW THOSE WHALES DON'T EAT
RUSSIAN DO THEY BOB?

Alfie says AHH, THOSE BOBS ARE BRILLIANT.
WELL CREATURE MANICAS, HE HAVE
SO MUCH MORE
STILL TO COME ON THE SHOW.
WE'VE 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 THAT GIANT
CENTIPEDES ARE NOCTURNAL?
DURING THE DAY THEY HIDE
IN DAMP, SHELTERED PLACES
AND DURING THE NIGHT THEY HUNT
THEIR PREY.
THEY CAN GROW UP TO THIRTY
CENTIMETRES.
A GIANT CENTIPEDE MAY BITE IF
DISTURBED OR HANDLED.
THE BITE MAY CAUSE SEVERE PAIN
THAT COULD PERSIST
FOR SEVERAL DAYS.
HOWEVER, NO DEATHS HAVE BEEN
RECORDED FROM THE BITE
OF ANY GIANT CENTIPEDE.
SOME PEOPLE REPORT INTENSE PAIN,
WHILE OTHERS CLAIM IT IS NO
WORSE THAN A WASP STING.
AND THAT'S...

Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT.

Alfie says ALL RIGHT CREATURE FANS,
TIME TO GET A BIT PHILOSOPHICAL.
TIME FOR SOME REFLECTIONS,
SOME QUESTIONS SOME SPECULATION
AND SOME MEDITATION,
FROM OUR FAVOURITE BLACK
AND WHITE, ROLY-POLY,
BAMBOO EATING, PONDERING PANDA.

A caption reads "Pondering Panda."

A kid says THE PANDA THAT LIKES TO PONDER.

A panda lying on its back says HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT ABOUT
HOW WHEN YOU BRUSH YOUR TEETH,
IT'S LIKE THE ONLY TIME YOU EVER
CLEAN YOUR SKELETON?
DOES THAT MEAN THE REST
OF OUR SKELETON IS REALLY DIRTY?
AND WILL A DIRTY SKELETON
GET HOLES IN IT
LIKE HOW TEETH GET HOLES
IN THEM IF YOU DON'T BRUSH THEM?
EW.
LUCKY MY SKELETON IS COVERED
IN FUR.
IMAGINE HAVING TO LOOK AT A
DIRTY, HOLEY SKELETON ALL DAY?
EW.
THAT WOULD PUT ME RIGHT OFF
MY BAMBOO.
YUCK.

Alfie says MOVING ON.
WHO'S READY TO FIND OUT IF THAT
GIANT FLUFFY DOG
CAN RUN THROUGH THE TUNNEL?
I AM.
SO IT'S TIME TO HEAD OVER
TO DOG TRICKS.

Katrina says WELCOME BACK.
WE HAVE BEEN BUSY TEACHING DJ TO
GO THROUGH THE TUNNEL.
NOW HE HAS DONE A FANTASTIC JOB
SO FAR.
WE'VE GOT HIM USED TO THE SOUND
AND THE FEEL OF THE TUNNEL.
WE HAVE GOT HIM GOING THROUGH
THE TUNNEL AT A SHORT DISTANCE.
HE HAS BEEN GOOD AT THAT.
SO NOW WHAT I WANT YOU TO DO,
STRETCH OUT THE TUNNEL FOR ME.
NICE AND LONG.
LET'S GO DJ.
CALL HIM, CALL HIM.

Miles says GOOD BOY.
GOOD BOY.
HE IS NEARLY THERE NOW.

Katrina says LEAD HIM OUT.
GIVE HIM TREATS WHEN HE COMES
RIGHT OUT.
GOOD BOY.
WELL DONE.
HE DID GREAT HUH?
THANK YOU.

They high-five.

Katrina says ARE YOU PROUD OF HIM?

Miles says YES.

Katrina says I KNOW I WASN'T
SO SURE HE WOULD FIT WELL
BUT HE DID IT REALLY WELL.
DOWN HE CRAWLED THROUGH
DIDN'T HE?
YOU SHOULD BE VERY PROUD.
YOU GUYS ARE A GREAT TEAM.
THANK YOU SO MUCH.
I DO HOPE YOU HAVE ENJOYED
WATCHING DJ TODAY.
I WILL BE BACK NEXT TIME
FOR ANOTHER DOG TRICK.

Alfie says THANKS KATRINA, HE IS A BIG DOG,
BUT HE DID IT.
WELL DONE MILES
AND WELL DONE DJ.
THEY'RE GONNA HAVE A BLAST
TRYING THAT ONE OUT AT HOME.
I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU,
BUT I CAN'T WAIT
FOR MORE DOG TRICKS NEXT TIME.
WELL, THAT'S ALL WE HAVE TIME
FOR TODAY.
I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE SHOW.
THE INCREDIBLE CROCODILE
AND THE WEIRD WIDE MOUTH FROG
WERE SOME OF MY FAVOURITES.
REMEMBER, ANIMALS ARE AWESOME,
AND PETS ARE PALS.
JOIN ME NEXT TIME
ON
CREATURE MANIA.
