(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.
AND HAVE I GOT A SHOW FOR YOU:
FROM FURRY TO FABULOUS.
COMING UP...

Clips show different types of animals as Alfie says FIND OUT WHAT SORT
OF CREATURE EATS POOP,
OR HAS SUCKERS FOR FEET,
WHY ARE SOME CRABS CALLED
FIDDLERS AND HOW MANY FEET
A MILLIPEDE REALLY HAS.
WE HAVE A LAUGH WITH PANDA
AND PONY,
CHECK OUT SOME STINKY SKUNKS
AND MEET A CHEEKY CAT
IN PET AND TELL.
PLUS, LOTS, LOTS, MORE.
IT'S GOING TO BE A PACKED SHOW.
FIRST THINGS FIRST LET'S GO SAY
HI TO DR. KATRINA
AND THE WONDER DOGS AND FIND OUT
ABOUT TODAY'S TRICK.
IT IS...

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.
I AM JOINED BY THE MOST AMAZING,
TALENTED GROUP OF DOGS AROUND,
THE WONDER DOGS.
AND TODAY WE'RE GOING
TO SHOW YOU
HOW TO TEACH YOUR DOG TO SPIN
AND MR. FLYNN IS GOING TO
DEMONSTRATE THIS FOR US.
LET'S LEARN A BIT
ABOUT HIM FIRST.
MEET FLYNN,
HE'S EIGHT YEARS OLD.
HIS NICKNAMES ARE MISTER MAN
AND FLYNNY.
HE'S AN AGILITY CHAMPION
AND HAS HEAPS
OF OBEDIENCE TITLES.
HE'S DONE LOTS OF TV COMMERCIALS
AND STAGE SHOW PERFORMANCES,
AND FLIES ALL OVER AUSTRALIA
FOR WORK AND FUN.
HIS FAVOURITE TRICKS INCLUDE
HIDING HIS FACE,
CROSSING HIS PAWS AND ROLLING UP
IN HIS BLANKEY.

Clips show the dog doing its favourite activities.

Katrina says HIS FAVOURITE HOBBIES,
WELL HE KNOWS HOW TO WIN HEARTS
WITH HIS DASHING LOOKS
AND CHARISMA.
HE ALSO LOVES SWIMMING, HIS BALL
ON THE ROPE, AGILITY
AND SLEEPING UPSIDE DOWN
ON THE LOUNGE.
THREE WORDS TO DESCRIBE FLYNN:
HANDSOME, CLEVER AND LOYAL.
NOW LET'S SEE FLYNN
DEMONSTRATE.

A caption reads "Learn to Spin."

Katrina makes a circle with her arms and says SPIN.
GOOD BOY.
SPIN IS A SUPER CUTE TRICK
AND IT'S A GREAT ONE
TO TEACH PUPPIES.
IN FACT,
YOU CAN START TEACHING A PUPPY
THIS TRICK THE MOMENT YOU BRING
IT HOME.
SPIN.
YEAH, GOOD BOY.
WELL NOW WE'VE SEEN AN EXPERT
DEMONSTRATION,
LET'S GO SEE WHO'S HERE TO TRAIN
THEIR DOG.
I AM HERE WITH KYLA
AND HER DOG NIKKI.
KYLA TELL ME A LITTLE BIT
ABOUT NIKKI.

Kyla is around 11, with long wavy blond hair in a side ponytail. She wears denim shorts and a blue T-shirt.

Kyla says UMM, SO NIKKI IS A GERMAN
SHORTHAIRED POINTER.

Katrina says HOW OLD IS SHE?

Kyla says SHE IS EIGHT MONTHS OLD.

Katrina says AND HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE HER
PERSONALITY?

Kyla says SO SHE IS VERY BOUNCY
AND EXCITED
AND SHE IS USUALLY ALWAYS HAPPY.

Katrina says DOES SHE EVER GET UP TO MISCHIEF
BEING A PUPPY?

Kyla jumps off the bench.

Katrina says LIKE THAT.
WHY DO YOU THINK IT'S IMPORTANT
TO TRAIN A DOG?

Kyla says OTHERWISE THEY WILL BE
MISBEHAVING
AND DOING ALL THE WRONG STUFF.

Katrina says WHAT KIND OF TRAINING HAVE YOU
DONE WITH NIKKI?

Kyla says UMM, WE'VE DONE THINGS LIKE WAIT
OR STAY.
UMM, WE'VE DONE SIT AND DROP.

Katrina says AND SHAKE PAWS MAYBE?

Kyla says YEAH.

Katrina says WOULD YOU LIKE TO LEARN SOME
TRICKS TODAY?

Kyla says SURE.

Katrina says OKAY I THINK NIKKI IS RARING
TO GO.
LET'S GET TO IT.

Nikki jumps off the bench again and Katrina says HEY.
TODAY WE'RE GOING TO TEACH NIKKI
HOW TO SPIN.
SO WE START THIS TRICK BY JUST
ASKING HER TO TURN HER HEAD
A TINY BIT
AND THEN GIVING HER A TREAT.
SO WHAT WE WILL DO IS NIKKI,
STAND UP.

Katrina says LOVES HER TREATS HUH?

Kyla says YEAH.

Katrina says TURN YOUR HEAD.
GOOD GIRL.
SO THAT'S ALL SHE NEEDS.
FOLLOW THE NOSE.
TURN YOUR HEAD.
GOOD GIRL.
TURN.
THAT'S IT, GOOD GIRL.
GIVE HER THE TREAT.
OKAY FROM THAT.
WE DON'T WANT HER TO DO
THE FLICKING...
NIKKI, NIKKI, NIKKI.
OKAY TRY AGAIN.
JUST THAT'S IT.
GIVE HER THE TREAT.
PERFECT.
WELL, THAT WAS STEP ONE.
WE'LL BE BACK SOON WITH STEP TWO
WHICH IS TEACHING HER TO GO
ALL THE WAY AROUND.

Alfie says WOW, THAT DOG NIKKI IS A BUNDLE
OF ENERGY.
SHE'LL BE SPINNING LIKE CRAZY
IN NO TIME AT ALL
BUT WILL THEY BE ABLE
TO STOP HER?
I HOPE SO.
WE'LL FIND OUT LATER.
BUT FIRST, IT'S TIME FOR
AN ANIMAL FACT.

An announcer says DID YOU KNOW... ..THAT FIDDLER CRABS
ARE VERY INTERESTING CREATURES?
THE FIDDLER CRAB GOT ITS NAME
DUE TO THE ENLARGED CLAW FOUND
ONLY IN THE MALE OF THE SPECIES,
WHICH LOOKS LIKE A FIDDLE.
THE FEMALES HAVE A MORE
TRADITIONAL LOOK WITH EACH CLAW
AS SMALL AS THE OTHER.
AND WHEN THE MALE'S LARGE CLAW
BREAKS OFF... ..A SMALLER CLAW GROWS INTO
A LARGE ONE.
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 BIG MOUTHED,
THEY'RE GOSSIPY, THEY'RE SMOOTH
AND THEY'RE LONG WINDED.
WHO ELSE COULD I BE TALKING
ABOUT?
IT'S TIME FOR THE...

A caption reads "Two Bobs."

Praying Mantis Bob 1 says HMMM.
LOOK INSIDE YOURSELF
AND FIND YOUR HAPPY PLACE.

Praying Mantis Bob 2 says CAN YOU SEE YOUR HAPPY PLACE
BOB?

Praying Mantis Bob 1 says WHEN YOU ARE
IN YOUR HAPPY PLACE...

Praying Mantis Bob 2 says DO YOU NEED SOME HELP
LOOKING BOB?
TURN AROUND
SO I CAN TAKE A PEAK.

Praying Mantis Bob 1 says INHALE YOUR SURROUNDINGS.

Praying Mantis Bob 2 says DON'T INHALE TOO MUCH BOB;
YOU MIGHT JUST CHOKE ON A FLY
OR SOMETHING.

Praying Mantis Bob 1 says BE THE KING OF YOUR OWN
CALM HAPPY PLACE.

Praying Mantis Bob 2 says ALL HALE BOB KING OF CALM.

Praying Mantis Bob 1 punches Praying Mantis Bob 2.

Praying Mantis Bob 2 says OH BOB.
OW.

Praying Mantis Bob 1 says GET YOUR FACE OUT
OF MY HAPPY PLACE.

Alfie says HONESTLY, WHAT A PAIR.
THEY DO MAKE ME LAUGH.
WE'LL HEAR FROM THEM AGAIN LATER
ON IN THE SHOW.
BUT NOW,
IT'S TIME TO PUT YOUR ANIMAL
UNDERSTANDING TO THE TEST.

A caption reads "creature Quiz."

The announcer says WHICH OF THESE ANIMALS
LOVES COLLECTING
OTHER ANIMAL'S WASTE?
IS IT A THE RAVENOUS
RASCALLY RAT?

The rat says PIZZA.

The announcer says B THE DANCING DUNG BEETLE?
OR IS IT C THE FUNNY LOOKING
FIDDLER CRAB?

The crab says YEAH.

The announcer says IF YOU ANSWERED B,
YOU'D BE CORRECT,
THE DUNG BEETLES CAN'T GET
ENOUGH OF OTHER ANIMALS' WASTE.
EVERY DAY IN AFRICA MORE THAN
5,000 TONS OF EXCREMENT
IS DROPPED BY THE VAST HERDS
GRAZING ON THE SAVANNAH.
DINNER IS SERVED
FOR THE DUNG BEETLE.
THEY CAN SMELL FRESH EXCREMENT
FROM MORE THAN A KILOMETRE AWAY.

The beetle says WOW.

The announcer says DUNG BEETLES BURY NEARLY ONE TON
OF DUNG PER HECTARE PER YEAR.
AND THERE'S HUGE ADVANTAGES
FOR A BEETLE THAT BURIES DUNG.

The beetle says OH REALLY?

The announcer says UNDERGROUND YOUR FOOD BALL IS
HIDDEN FROM OTHER BEETLES
AND IT'S A SAFE PLACE TO BRING
UP YOUR BABIES.
FOR AN ANIMAL THAT LIVES
AND EATS POOP,
THE DUNG BEETLE CAN BE
SURPRISINGLY CLEAN.
A FEMALE WILL STAY WITH HER
GRUBS FOR TWO MONTHS,
REGULARLY CLEANING THEM WITH
ANTISEPTIC SALIVA
AND REMOVING FAECES, FUNGI
AND BACTERIA.
DUNG BEETLES ARE FOUND
ON EVERY CONTINENT
EXCEPT ANTARCTICA,
AND HAVE BEEN BUSILY COLLECTING
DUNG FOR A VERY LONG TIME.
IN FACT,
RESEARCH HAS REVEALED THAT
EIGHTY MILLION YEARS AGO DUNG
BEETLES WERE BUSY BURYING
THE DROPPINGS OF DINOSAURS.

(roar)

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,
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... ..THE WETA HAS BEEN
UNFORTUNATELY NAMED
IN SEVERAL DIFFERENT LANGUAGES?
SINCE THE WETA IS
FROM NEW ZEALAND,
WETA IS ACTUALLY A MAORI NAME,
WHICH MEANS
"GOD OF UGLY THINGS."
NOT ONLY THAT
BUT THE SCIENTIFIC NAME
FOR THE WETA, DEINACRIDA,
MEANS "TERRIBLE GRASSHOPPER."
IT'S NOT THAT BAD,
ONE AWESOME THING IT CAN DO IS
FREEZE IN THE WINTER
AND STAY FROZEN FOR MONTHS
ON END BEFORE THAWING OUT.
AND THAT'S...

Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT.

Alfie says ERRR.
WETAS ARE SO WEIRD.
THEY'RE PRETTY AMAZING,
BUT SO WEIRD.
BUT YOU KNOW WHAT ISN'T WEIRD?
NIKKI THE "I-DON'T-STOP-MOVING."
DOG.
SHE'S UNSTOPPABLE.
QUITE LITERALLY UNSTOPPABLE.
ANYWAY IT'S TIME TO CHECK IN
AND SEE HOW KYLA IS DOING
AT TEACHING NIKKI TO SPIN
IN DOG TRICKS PARK TWO.

Katrina says KYLA AND I HAVE BEEN TEACHING
NIKKI HERE HOW TO SPIN.
FIRST STEP WAS JUST GETTING HER
USED TO TURNING HER HEAD.
SHE IS PRETTY GOOD AT THAT.
SECOND STEP IS TO GET HER
TO FOLLOW THE TREAT
ALL THE WAY AROUND.
SO WITH THE TREAT IN YOUR HAND,
ALL WE DO IS SPIN
INTO HER BODY LIKE THAT.
PRETTY EASY.
SO JUST KEEP THE TREAT
ON HER NOSE, FOLLOW INTO YOU
AND OFF YOU GO.
NICE AND TIGHT.
PERFECT.
NOW GO AGAIN.
NICE AND TIGHT.
PERFECT.
WELL THAT IS STEP TWO.
WE WILL BE BACK SOON
WITH STEP THREE,
WHICH IS GETTING HER TO GO
BOTH DIRECTIONS.
DO YOU THINK SHE CAN DO IT?

Kyla says YEP.

Katrina says I THINK SHE CAN.
ESPECIALLY FOR TREATS.
OKAY.
DO YOU LOVE YOUR FOOD?

Alfie says MORE DOG TRICKS LATER.
AND NOW MY FRIENDS, TIME
FOR MORE LAUGHS,
SOME SNICKERING, SOME SNORTING
AND CHORTLING WITH OUR FAVOURITE
FUNNY HORSE,
OR AT LEAST SHE THINKS SO.
HAND OVER THE MIC TO OUR ONE
AND 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 DID YOU HEAR ABOUT THE LORRY
LOAD OF TORTOISES THAT CRASHED.
IT WAS A TURTLE DISASTER.
WHERE DID THE SHEEP GO
ON VACATION?
GIVE UP?
THE BAAAAAHAAAAMAS.

Kids say BAD PUN PONY, YAY.

Alfie says OH, THAT PONY GET'S ME
EVERY TIME.
SHE'LL BE BACK WITH MORE PONYING
AROUND NEXT TIME BUT NOW, TIME
FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY
DIFFERENT.
WARM UP THOSE BRAIN CELLS
AND TEST YOUR KNOWLEDGE
WITH ANOTHER COOL...

Kids say "Creature Quiz."

The announcer says WHICH OF THESE ANIMALS... ..CAN STICK TO ALMOST
ANY SURFACE?
IS IT A THE SUPER GOOFY GECKO?
B THE SCALY, SLITHERING SNAKE?

A kangaroo says UH-OH.

The announcer says OR C THE SNEAKY SLIMY SNAIL?
IF YOU GUESSED A
YOU ARE CORRECT.
THE FOUR FANTASTIC FEET
OF THE GECKO CAN CLING TO ALMOST
ANY SURFACE.
CLIMBING UP A WALL
OF GLASS IS TRICKY BUSINESS,
UNLESS YOU'RE A GUTSY GECKO.
UNLIKE OTHER CLIMBING ANIMALS,
THE GECKO HAS NO NEED
FOR SUCTION CUPS, VELCRO HOOKS,
OR STICKY SECRETIONS.
RESEARCHERS HAVE FOUND THAT
THE GECKO'S CLINGING POWER
COMES FROM THE STRUCTURE
OF TINY VELVETY HAIRS ON EACH
OF ITS FEET.
THE STICKING POWER IS
SO STRONG THAT, THEORETICALLY,
A GECKO WALKING
ON THE CEILING COULD SUPPORT
A BACKPACK WEIGHING FORTY
KILOGRAMS.
ON EACH FOOT THEY HAVE A RIDGED
PAD, WITH EACH RIDGE COVERED
IN WHAT LOOK LIKE TINY SCALES
BUT ARE ACTUALLY
MORE THAN 150,000 HAIRS.
THE ENDS OF WHICH ARE FURTHER
DIVIDED UP TO 1000 TIMES.
EACH GECKO FOOT HAS MORE THAN
A BILLION OF THESE SPLIT ENDS.
THEY'RE SO SMALL THAT THEIR
HAIRS CAN EMBRACE THE MOLECULES
IN THE GLASS
SO THE GECKO ALMOST BECOMES PART
OF THE OBJECT IT'S CLINGING TO.
RESEARCHERS ARE HOPING THAT ONE
DAY ARTIFICIAL GECKO HAIRS WILL
REVOLUTIONIZE THE WAY HUMANS
STICK TINY THINGS TOGETHER.
THEY COULD BE USED
FOR MICROSURGERY,
OR PICKING UP DELICATE
COMPUTER CHIPS.
HA.
THANKS GECKO.

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... ..MILLIPEDES HAVE EVOLVED INTO
MORE THAN 10,000 SPECIES,
NONE OF WHICH HAVE 1000 LEGS
AS THEIR NAME SUGGESTS.
FOSSIL EVIDENCE INDICATES THAT
MILLIPEDES WERE THE EARLIEST
ANIMALS TO BREATHE AIR
AND MAKE THE MOVE
FROM WATER TO LAND.
EACH TIME A MILLIPEDE MOULTS IT
ADDS MORE BODY SEGMENTS
AND LEGS, BY MATURITY IT MAY
HAVE DOZENS OF SEGMENTS
AND HUNDREDS OF LEGS.
AND THAT'S...

Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT.

Alfie says ALL RIGHT CREATURE FANS
IT'S THAT TIME OF THE SHOW
I ALWAYS LOOK FORWARD TO.
WE'RE ABOUT TO MEET A SPECIAL
GUEST AND THEIR PET,
RIGHT HERE IN THE HOUSE
BUT FIRST, THERE'S THIS.

(BOUNCING BALL SOUNDS)

6 kittens move their heads following the ball on a tennis match.

((MUSIC PLAYS))

A caption reads "It’s Pet and Tell."

Alfie says INTRODUCING ZARA.
SHE HAS BROUGHT IN HER PET CAT
TO SHOW US.
HELLO ZARA.

Zara is around 10, with mid length straight brown hair with a snap clip and wears orange shorts and a white T-shirt.

Zara says HELLO ALFIE.

Alfie says SO WHO'S IN THE CAGE?

Zara says RUMBLE.

Alfie says RUMBLE.
AND AHH WHAT IS RUMBLE?

Zara says A RED BURMESE.

Alfie says A RED BURMESE CAT.

Zara says YES.

Alfie says HOW DID YOU COME UP WITH
THE NAME RUMBLE?

Zara says WELL MY PARENTS UMM WHEN THEY
WERE IN ENGLAND
IN THE COUNTRYSIDE THERE WERE
THESE SIGNS THAT SAID RUMBLE
STRIPS AHEAD AND MUM THOUGHT
IT WOULD BE A GOOD NAME.

Alfie says BURMESE CAT.
BURMESE ARE INTELLIGENT, VOCAL
AND EXTREMELY FRIENDLY CATS.
THEY LOVE TO CUDDLE.
IT'S THOUGHT THAT BURMESE CATS
SEEN IN WESTERN COUNTRIES TODAY
ARE ALL DESCENDED FROM
ONE FEMALE BRED IN THE 1930S.
BURMESE MAKE PERFECT PETS,
WHICH IS WHY IT IS ONE
OF AUSTRALIA'S MOST POPULAR
PEDIGREE SHORT HAIR CATS.
BURMESE CAT.
I AM NOT SURE IF I AM MISTAKEN
BUT HAVE I SEEN RUMBLE BEFORE?

Zara says YOU MEAN ON TWITTER?

Alfie says YEAH. CAN YOU TELL ME ABOUT THAT?

Zara says WELL WE POST PHOTOS
OF HIM SLEEPING.

Alfie says THAT'S LIKE,
THAT'S REALLY INTERESTING.

Zara says YEAH.

Alfie says SO AHH, WHAT DO YOU FEED HIM
AND WHAT WATER DO YOU GIVE HIM?

Zara says WE GIVE HIM CAT TINS
AND THESE LITTLE CAT BISCUITS
WE CALL CRUNCHIES.
AND WE FEED HIM
AND WE GIVE HIM WATER
THAT YOU PUT IN THE BATH
BECAUSE HE DOESN'T LIKE
THE WATER NEXT TO HIS FOOD.

Alfie says REALLY?

Zara says YEAH.

Alfie says IS THAT NORMAL?

Zara says YEAH, I THINK SO.

Alfie says SO HE WON'T GO NEAR THE WATER IF
IT IS NEAR THE FOOD?

Zara says WELL HE WON'T DRINK THE WATER IF
IT IS NEAR THE FOOD.

Alfie says RIGHT.
SO YOU MAKE SURE IT IS
SEPARATED.

Zara says YEAH.

Alfie says SO HOW MUCH DO YOU LOVE CATS?
A LOT.

Zara says I HAVE A CAT PILLOW WITH
AN ORANGE CAT,
A CAT MUG AND LOTS OF
CAT STUFFED ANIMALS.

Alfie says SO YOU LIKE LOVE CATS?

Zara says YEAH.

Alfie says THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT
IS THERE?

Zara says NO.

Alfie says CATS ARE AMAZING.
WELL THANK YOU SO MUCH
FOR COMING IN TODAY ZARA.

Zara says THANKS ALFIE.

Alfie says AND THANK YOU FOR INTRODUCING ME
TO YOUR SUPER CUTE CAT RUMBLE.
OH HE IS SO CUTE.
SPEAKING OF CUTE
CHECK THIS OUT.
(MEOW)

The announcer says THIS CAT WOULD MAKE A GREAT PET.
(WOOF)
SO WOULD THIS DOG,
OR THIS CUTE BUNNY.
BUT WHAT ABOUT A SKUNK?
WAIT, DON'T BE SO QUICK
TO JUDGE.
THERE ARE OVER FIVE MILLION PETS
SKUNKS IN AMERICA.
THEY'RE FLUFFY, SOCIAL
AND LOVE TO CUDDLE.
SURE THEY STINK BUT COME
ON WHO DOESN'T OCCASIONALLY.
FOR MANY PEOPLE SKUNKS
ARE JUST...

A caption reads "Too Cute."

Alfie says AHH, WE'LL HAVE MORE TOO CUTE
NEXT TIME I PROMISE
AND I CAN'T WAIT.
NEXT ON THE SHOW,
IT'S TIME TO PUT YOUR CREATURE
COMPREHENSION TO THE TEST
AND FEED THAT BRAIN OF YOURS.
YES, IT'S TIME
FOR CREATURE QUIZ.

The announcer says WHICH OF THESE ANIMALS
TRAVELLED THE SEVEN SEAS
TO INVADE OTHER COUNTRIES?
IS IT A THE RASCALLY RABBIT?

The rabbit says I'M COMING TO GET YA.

The announcer says B THE RAUCOUS RHINOCEROS BEETLE?

A beetle says RA, YOU LOOKING AT ME?

Another beetle says NO.

The announcer says OR C THE CEILING CLINGING,
EYEBALL LICKING, GOOFY GECKO?
IF YOU ANSWERED A,
THE RABBIT YOU ARE CORRECT.
THIS CUTE LITTLE BUNNY IS A
GLOBAL CONQUEROR.
IT LEAPT OUT OF ITS HOME
IN SPAIN TO INVADE TWENTY-NINE
OTHER COUNTRIES.
THE RABBIT BEGAN ITS TRAVELS
WITH THE ANCIENT ROMANS
THOUSANDS OF YEARS AGO.
THEY DOMESTICATED THE SPANISH
WILD RABBIT
AND TOOK IT WITH THEM
AROUND EUROPE.
AND THEN,
WHEN EUROPEANS SET SAIL
ON THEIR VOYAGES OF DISCOVERY
THE RABBIT WENT ALONG
FOR THE RIDE.
THE ENGLISH WERE NOTORIOUSLY
HOMESICK
AND TRIED HARD TO TRANSFORM
THE NEW LANDS INTO
SOMETHING LIKE THE OLD COUNTRY.
SO IN PLACES LIKE AUSTRALIA
AND NEW ZEALAND PEOPLE STARTED
SETTING RABBITS LOOSE TO MAKE IT
FEEL MORE LIKE HOME.
THE RABBITS FOUND PARADISE,
BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T HAVE ALL
THE NATURAL ENEMIES
THEY HAD AT HOME.
ONE EIGHTH OF ALL MAMMALIAN
SPECIES IN AUSTRALIA
ARE NOW EXTINCT AND RABBITS
WERE THE SINGLE MOST
SIGNIFICANT FACTOR.

The rabbit says YEAH, WE RULE.

A caption reads "Two Bobs."

Fish Bob 1 says HEY BOB.

Fish Bob 2 says OI BOB.

Fish Bob 1 says YES BOB, WE BOB.
WE ARE BOTH BOB.

Fish Bob 2 says NO, WE JE M'APPELLE BOB.

Fish Bob 1 says BOB WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

Fish Bob 2 says LEARNING THE LANGUAGE
OF LOVE AIN'T I BOB?

Fish Bob 1 says LITHUANIAN?

Fish Bob 2 says NO FRENCH BOB TO IMPRESS
THE LADIES.

Fish Bob 1 says OH.
YOU KNOW, MUDSKIPPER LADIES LOVE
A GOOD BURP BOB.

Fish Bob 2 says DO THEY?

Fish Bob 1 says YES THEY DO.

Fish Bob 2 says HOW ABOUT THIS THEN.

Fish Bob 2 Burps.

Fish Bob 1 says OH.
CAN YOU DO THAT IN FRENCH?

Fish Bob 2 says SURE CAN.
LE BURP.

Fish Bob 1 says VERY ROMANTIC BOB.

Fish Bob 2 says WE BOB.

Fish Bob 1 says YES BOB, WE BOB.
WE ARE BOTH BOB.
I THOUGHT WE WENT THROUGH THIS.

Fish Bob 2 burps again.

Alfie says AHH, 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... ..THE STAG BEETLE HAS
A UNIQUE WAY OF LOOKING
AT THE WORLD?
THEIR COMPOUND EYES ARE MADE UP
OF MULTIPLE LENSES
THAT SEE UV LIGHT.

The beetle says WELL, YOU DON'T SEE THAT
EVERY DAY.

The announcer says PARTICULARLY COOLER COLOURS
LIKE BLUE AND WHITE.

The beetle says MMM.

The announcer says AS A RESULT, MANY OF A STAG
BEETLE'S FAVOURITE
FOODS INCLUDE FLOWERS AND FRUIT
THAT FALL INTO
THIS COLOUR SPECTRUM.
AND THAT'S...

Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT.

Alfie says ALL RIGHT CREATURE FANS,
TIME TO GET A BIT PHILOSOPHICAL.
IT'S TIME TO MULL IT ALL OVER.
TIME TO HAVE A LITTLE BROOD,
TO EXPLORE SOME IDEAS WITH OUR
FAVOURITE BLACK AND WHITE,
ROLY-POLY, BAMBOO EATING,
PONDERING PANDA.

A caption reads "Pondering Panda."

Kids say THE PANDA THAT LIKES TO PONDER.

A panda lying in its back says DO YOU EVER THINK ABOUT
HOW WEIRD CLAPPING IS?
I MEAN, CLAPPING IS BASICALLY
JUST HITTING OURSELVES
BECAUSE WE LIKE SOMETHING.
AND YOU NEED TWO FREE PAWS
TO CLAP
AND MY PAWS ARE USUALLY FILLED
WITH BAMBOO.
WHICH MEANS I'D HAVE TO PUT
MY BAMBOO DOWN
TO CLAP AT SOMETHING.
AND WHY WOULD I WANT TO PUT
MY BAMBOO DOWN TO HIT MYSELF?
CLAPPING, TOO WEIRD.

Alfie says AND THAT CREATURE FANS
WAS THE PONDERING PANDA.
INTERESTING.
YES.
LET'S MOVE ON.
ALRIGHT IT'S THAT TIME
OF THE SHOW WHERE WE HEAD OVER
AND FIND OUT IF KYLA CAN GET
NIKKI TO SPIN
IN BOTH DIRECTIONS.
I'M FEELING CONFIDENT.
IT'S DOG TRICKS.

Katrina says KYLA AND I HAVE BEEN TEACHING
NIKKI HOW TO SPIN
AND SHE HAS DONE A GREAT JOB
SO FAR HASN'T SHE?
SHE HAS GOT THE SPIN IN
ONE DIRECTION GOING REALLY WELL.
SO NOW, WE WILL SEE IF SHE CAN
DO IT IN TWO DIRECTIONS.
I THINK YOU CAN DO THIS.
PERFECT.
PERFECT.
DO YOU WANT TO DO IT
ONE MORE TIME?
HERE WE GO.
NICE AND FAST THIS TIME.
SEE HOW SHE GOES.
SHE IS DOING WELL
WHICH IS GREAT.
OH AND A ROLL OVER.
OKAY, OFF YOU GO.
GOOD GIRL.
PERFECT.
WELL DONE.
HAVE YOU HAD FUN?

Kyla says YES.

Katrina says ARE YOU PROUD OF NIKKI?
SHE HAS DONE WELL.

Kyla says SHE HAS.

Katrina says DO YOU THINK YOU WILL PICK IT UP
AT HOME?
TRAINING?

Kyla says DEFINITELY.

Katrina says BECAUSE THE MORE YOU TRAIN
THE MORE YOU WILL BURN OFF
SOME OF HER ENERGY.

Kyla says YEP.

Katrina says AND SHE NEEDS THAT I THINK.
I HOPE YOU HAVE ENJOYED TODAY'S
DOG TRICK.
WE WILL BE BACK NEXT TIME WITH
ANOTHER ONE.

Alfie says THANKS KATRINA AND WOW,
GREAT WORK KYLA AND NIKKI.
WHAT A BUNDLE OF FUN THAT
DOG IS.
I THINK KYLA WILL HAVE HER HANDS
FULL TRAINING WITH NIKKI.
CRAZY SMART DOG AND LOTS OF FUN.
WELL, THAT'S IT FOR TODAY'S
SHOW CREATURE MANIACS.
HOW CUTE WERE THOSE SKUNKS?
CUTE, BUT STINKY.
I HOPE YOU ENJOYED LEARNING
ABOUT THE AMAZING DUNG BEETLES
TOO, I SURE DID.
THEY'RE PRETTY INCREDIBLE.
REMEMBER ANIMALS ARE AWESOME,
AND PETS ARE PALS.
I'M ALFIE AND I WILL SEE YOU
GUYS NEXT TIME
ON
CREATURE MANIA.
