(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.
THE PLACE
WITH ALL THE FUN FILLED,
FANTASTIC AND FUNNY.
COMING UP...

Clips show different types of animals as Alfie says WE FIND OUT
IF HYENAS ARE NICE OR NASTY,
IS A CUTTLEFISH A FRIEND OR FOE,
AND WHAT'S SO SPECIAL
ABOUT A GANNET?
WE HAVE A LAUGH
WITH PANDA AND PONY
AND WE GET A DOSE OF CUTENESS
WITH THESE SERIOUSLY
FLUFFY DUCKLINGS
AND WE MEET A PERFECT PET
IN PET AND TELL.
PLUS, LOTS, LOTS MORE.
WE HAVE A PACKED SHOW
COMING YOUR WAY
WITH SO MUCH TO LOOK FORWARD TO.
BUT FIRST IT'S TIME TO HEAD OVER
TO DR. KATRINA
AND THE WONDER DOGS
AND FIND OUT
WHAT TRICK
SHE'LL BE TEACHING TODAY.
IT'S TIME FOR 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 MY FURRY FRIENDS
ARE THE AMAZING, VERY TALENTED
WONDER DOGS.
TODAY WE'RE GOING TO SHOW YOU
HOW TO TEACH YOUR DOG TO BOW.
DART'S GOING TO DEMONSTRATE
THIS ONE.
LET'S LEARN A 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 "Learn to Bow."

Katrina says BOW.

Darty bows.

Katrina says THE BOW IS REALLY CUTE
AND IT'S A NATURAL BEHAVIOUR
THAT MANY DOGS SHOW
WHEN THEY'RE PLAYING.
YOU OFTEN SEE DOGS
WHEN THEY'RE OUT IN THE PARK
PLAYING WITH ANOTHER DOG
WHEN THEY GO INTO
THAT BOW POSITION
WELL THAT'S ACTUALLY
THE START OF THIS TRICK.
BOW.
WELL NOW WE'VE SEEN
AN EXPERT DEMONSTRATION,
LET'S GO SEE WHO'S HERE
TO TRAIN THEIR DOG.
I'M HERE WITH JAYDEN
AND HIS GORGEOUS DOG RUBY.
JAYDEN TELL ME A LITTLE BIT
ABOUT RUBY.

Jayden is around 11, with short wavy light brown hair and wears white trousers and a burgundy T-shir.

He sits on a bench with a black dog.

Jayden says RUBY IS THREE.
I PLAY WITH HER.
SHE HAS A SPECIAL TOY,
WHICH IS BASICALLY
A BUNCH OF SOCKS STUCK TOGETHER.

Katrina says OH DO YOU?
NOW TELL US WHAT BREED SHE IS.
BECAUSE I AM SURE
A LOT OF PEOPLE THINK
SHE IS A DOBERMAN.
BUT SHE IS NOT IS SHE?

Jayden says RUBY IS A GERMAN PINSCHER.

Katrina says HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE
HER PERSONALITY?

Jayden says SHE IS PLAYFUL, CHEEKY,
SOMETIMES CAUTIOUS,
DOESN'T LIKE SMALL FLUFFY DOGS.

Katrina says OKAY WELL THERE IS NO SMALL
FLUFFY DOGS AROUND HERE,
JUST LOTS OF TREATS.
ARE YOU READY TO DO
SOME TRAINING?

Jayden says YEP.

Katrina says EXCELLENT.
LET'S GO.
TODAY WE'RE GOING TO TEACH RUBY
HOW TO BOW.
THIS IS A REALLY CUTE TRICK.
FIRST UP WE JUST WANT HER
TO GET USED TO PUTTING HER HEAD
TOWARDS THE GROUND.
SO THAT IS JUST SIMPLE,
FOR A TREAT, GET HER TO BEND.
GOOD GIRL, RUBY.
OKAY SO WE ARE JUST GETTING
HER USED TO BEING REWARDED
FOR PUTTING HER HEAD DOWN.
DO YOU WANT TO HAVE A GO
AT THAT?

Jayden says OKAY.

Katrina says THERE WE GO.
DOWN.
GOOD GIRL.
ONE MORE.
BENDING.
GOOD.
OKAY THAT WAS A GREAT START.
WE'RE GOING TO KEEP PRACTICING.
WE WILL BE BACK SOON
WITH STEP TWO,
WHICH IS TEACHING HER
TO PUT HER ELBOWS ON THE GROUND.

Alfie says WOW WHAT AN AMAZING LOOKING DOG
RUBY IS.
I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE HOW THEY GO
AT TEACHING RUBY TO BOW.
SHE LOOKS LIKE
SHE'S REALLY KEEN.
WELL GUYS THERE'S LOTS MORE
STILL TO COME ON THE SHOW
BUT NEXT AN ANIMAL FACT.

A caption reads "Did you know?"

An announcer says HYENAS ARE ACCOMPLISHED
HUNTERS
AND THEY GET UP TO
75 percent OF THEIR FOOD
FROM THEIR OWN KILLS MAKING THEM
MORE SUCCESSFUL HUNTERS
THAN LIONS?

A rhino says REALLY?

The announcer says THEY RELY ON THEIR SPEED
AND STAMINA
TO RUN DOWN THEIR PREY.
HOWEVER THEY ARE GENERALLY KNOWN
AS SCAVENGERS
AND DRIVE LARGE ANIMALS AWAY
FROM THEIR KILL.

A hyena says HIT THE ROAD.

The announcer says JEEPERS CREEPERS.
EVEN LIONS GIVE AWAY THEIR FOOD
TO THEM
IF THEY ARE HEAVILY OUTNUMBERED.
(LAUGHING)

The announcer says 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 GREGARIOUS,
THEY'RE MOTOR MOUTHED,
THEY'RE CHATTY
AND THEY'RE GOSSIPY.
WHO ELSE COULD I BE
TALKING ABOUT?
YES, YOU GUESSED IT.
IT'S TIME FOR TWO BOBS.

White Llama Bob says HEY, BOB,
CAN I HAVE A WORD BOB?

Brown Llama Bob says YEAH, BOB,
WHAT'S UP?

White Llama Bob says BOB I AM SORRY BUT WE ARE GOING
TO HAVE TO LET YOU GO BOB.

Brown Llama Bob says WHAT DO YOU MEAN BOB?

White Llama Bob says YOU'RE FIRED, BOB.

Brown Llama Bob says WHAT? WHAT DID I DO?

White Llama Bob says OH YOU'RE NUMBERS THEY'RE JUST
NOT ADDING UP I'M AFRAID BOB.

Brown Llama Bob says NUMBERS BOB?
I DON'T GET IT.

White Llama Bob says YOU ARE, YOU ARE BOB
FROM ACCOUNTING, AREN'T YOU?

Brown Llama Bob says NO, BOB.
THE ONLY NUMBERS I DEAL WITH
ARE NUMBER ONES AND NUMBER TWOS.

White Llama Bob says WAIT, WHICH BOB ARE YOU?

Brown Llama Bob says I AM BOB THE JANITOR
AND HERE'S MY ID.

(FARTS)

Brown Llama Bob says OH NO, THAT'S NOT NESS...
THERE'S A FAX COMING.

(FARTS)

White Llama Bob says NO PLEASE DON'T-- NO-- I.

Brown Llama Bob says OOPS BETTER GET THAT
IN TRIPLICATE.

White Llama Bob says I DON'T NEED-- NO...
PLEASE-- NO.
OH.
(FARTS)

Alfie says MORE FROM THEM LATER ON.
BUT NOW IT'S TIME TO TEST
YOUR CREATURE COMPREHENSION
AND FEED THAT BRAIN OF YOURS.
THROW ON YOUR THINKING CAP.
IT'S CREATURE QUIZ.

A caption reads "Which of these animals..."

The announcer says IS A SUPER HIGHFLYING JUMPER?
IS IT A THE WRIGGLY EARTHWORM?
IS IT B THE AROWANA FISH
FROM THE AMAZON?
OR IS IT C THE ALWAYS
DELIGHTFUL HIPPOPOTAMUS?
IF YOU ANSWERED B
YOU WOULD BE RIGHT.
THE AROWANA FISH
IS A SUPER HIGH FLYING JUMPER.
IN THE RIVERS OF THE AMAZON
THIS FISH HAS DEVELOPED
GOURMET TASTES,
MEANING IT'LL GO
TO AMAZING LENGTHS
TO GET ITS FAVOURITE FOOD.
THE ONE METRE LONG AROWANA FISH
IS AS AGILE AS A MONKEY.
IN FACT THEY'RE KNOWN
IN THESE PARTS
AS WATER MONKEYS.
(MONKEY SHRIEKING)
THEY USUALLY HUNT SMALL FISH,
BUT AT CERTAIN TIMES OF THE YEAR
WHEN THE RIVER IS IN FLOOD,
THEY LIKE TO GO OUT
FOR A GOURMET DINNER.
THEY PATROL CLOSE
TO THE SURFACE,
LOOKING UP AND OUT OF THE WATER
FOR DELICACIES.
HIGH ABOVE THE WATER,
CLINGING TO A TREE,
THIS INSECT SHOULD BE
SAFE ENOUGH.
BUT THE AROWANA WILL LEAP HIGH
OUT OF THE WATER
TO CATCH INSECTS
AT THIS TIME OF THE YEAR.
((music plays))
(SCREAMING)
THE INSECTS DON'T KNOW
WHAT HIT THEM.
THEY HAVE NO TIME TO ESCAPE
THIS FLYING FISH.
AROWANA'S BELONG TO A FAMILY
ALSO KNOWN AS BONY TONGUES.
THIS IS BECAUSE THEY HAVE
A TOOTHED BONE
ON THE FLOOR OF THE MOUTH.
THEIR TONGUES HAVE TEETH
THAT BITE AGAINST TEETH
ON THE ROOF OF THE MOUTH.
THE AROWANA IS AN AMAZING
GOURMET WITH THE SKILLS
TO CATCH ITS FILL
OF ITS FAVOURITE FOOD.
WAY YOU GO, BUDDY.

Alfie says A TRUCKLOAD
OF ANIMAL AMAZINGNESS
IN CREATURE QUIZ.
SOME ASTONISHING ANIMAL FACTS
AND WE MEET OUR PET AND TELL
GUEST
AND HEARS SOME HILARITY
FROM THE TWO BOBS.
ALL THAT STILL TO COME
ON
CREATURE MANIA.

A caption reads "Did you know?"

The announcer says THAT WHEN GANNETS GO FISHING
FOR THEIR DINNER,
THEY DECIDE TO CHANGE
FROM A HIGH FLYER,
INTO A DEATH DEFYING
OLYMPIC HIGH DIVER?
TO FIND THEIR PREY,
THEY DIVE HEAD FIRST
INTO THE SEA FROM OVER
30 METRES IN THE AIR.
THEY CAN HIT THE WATER
AT 140 KILOMETRES PER HOUR
JUST TO FIND THEIR FOOD.
THE GANNET WILL TAKE
A DEEP BREATH TO INFLATE SACS
JUST BELOW THE SKIN
ON THEIR FOREHEAD AND CHEST,
JUST LIKE AIRBAGS IN CARS.
AND THAT'S...

Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT.

Alfie says HAVE YOU HEARD PEOPLE SAY
"YOU EAT LIKE A GANNET."
THAT'S BECAUSE THEY EAT
ALMOST ANYTHING.
DO YOU KNOW WHO ELSE ALMOST
DEFINITELY EATS EVERYTHING
AND ANYTHING?
OUR DOG TODAY
IN DOG TRICKS, RUBY.
LET'S CHECK OUT HOW THEY'RE
DOING WITH TRAINING HER TO BOW,
IT'S TIME FOR STEP TWO
OF DOG TRICKS.

Katrina says WELCOME BACK.
WE ARE TEACHING BEAUTIFUL RUBY
HOW TO DO HER BOW.
SO STEP ONE WAS JUST GETTING
HER USED TO PUTTING HER HEAD
TOWARDS THE GROUND.
STEP TWO WE'RE GOING TO TRY
TO GET HER
TO PUT THE ELBOWS DOWN.
WE ARE GOING TO ENCOURAGE HER
WITH TREATS.
I AM JUST GOING TO HOLD MY ARM
THERE FOR SUPPORT
JUST IN CASE SHE NEEDS IT.
RUBY DOWN.
THERE GOOD GIRL.
SO AS SOON AS SHE BENDS
THOSE ELBOWS
SHE IS GETTING THE TREAT.
SHE IS NOT REALLY LEANING
ON MY ARM AT ALL
BUT I HAVE GOT IT THERE
JUST IN CASE SHE NEEDS IT.

Jayden says RUBY.

Katrina says I AM GOING TO GIVE YOU
MORE TREATS
AND USE LOTS OF TREATS
FOR THIS ONE.
DOWN BETWEEN HER LEGS.
HOLD IT THERE.
AS SOON AS SHE IS DONE,
GOOD ONE.
GIVE IT TO HER.
WELL DONE.
SO THAT IS STEP TWO.
WE'RE GOING TO KEEP WORKING
ON THAT ONE
UNTIL SHE IS REALLY COMFORTABLE
WITH IT.
THE NEXT STEP IS TO MOVE
THAT ARM AND GET HER TO BOW.
BUT PLEASE REMEMBER IF YOU ARE
GOING TO TEACH YOUR DOG TRICKS
OR DO ANY TRAINING AT HOME
MAKE SURE YOU HAVE
ADULT SUPERVISION.

Alfie says WE'LL CATCH UP WITH THEM
A BIT LATER ON.
AND NOW, TIME FOR SOME GIGGLES
AND CHUCKLES
AND MAYBE EVEN
A BIT OF SNORTING TOO...
(SNORTS)...WITH OUR FAVOURITE
FUNNY HORSE,
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 WHAT DO YOU CALL A DINOSAUR
IN AN ACCIDENT?
A TYRANNOSAURUS WRECK.
(LAUGHS)

Bad Pun Pony says WHAT IS THE EASIEST WAY
TO COUNT A HERD OF CATTLE?
WITH A COW-CULATOR.
(LAUGHS)

Kids say BAD PUN PONY.
YAY.

Alfie says NOW TIME FOR A CHANGE
OF SCENERY.
LET'S GO EXPLORE
THE AMAZING ANIMAL KINGDOM.
IT'S TIME TO TEST OUR KNOWLEDGE
WITH ANOTHER CREATURE QUIZ.

A caption reads "Which of these animals..."

The announcer says HELP PROPAGATE PLANTS
WITH THEIR EXCREMENT?
IS IT A THE GHOULS OF THE NIGHT,
THE BEWITCHING BATS?
THESE GUYS ARE FREAKY.
B THE SCURRYING, SECRETIVE,
TREASURE BURYING SQUIRRELS?

The squirrel says OH QUICK, GOT TO HIDE MY NUTS.
OH NO, SOMEONE SAW ME.
RUN.

The announcer says OR IS IT C THE MYSTERIOUS
AND MARVELLOUS MANNED WOLF?
IF YOU ANSWERED C
YOU ARE CORRECT.
THE MANED WOLF HELPS
PROPAGATE PLANTS
WITH THEIR EXCREMENT.
THE MANED WOLF'S LONG
STILT-LIKE LEGS ALLOW IT TO SEE
OVER THE TALL GRASS OF ITS HOME,
IN BRAZIL'S CERRADO REGION.
LIKE ANY WOLF,
THEY'LL HUNT SMALL MAMMALS,
BUT THIS WOLF ALSO
HAS GOURMET TASTES.
THE FRUIT OF THE LOBIRAS PLANT
IS A DELICACY
FOR THIS VERY GOURMET.
THE FRUIT IS SO BITTER
THAT MOST ANIMALS AVOID IT.
BUT THE FRUIT CONTAIN CHEMICALS
THAT KILL THE INTERNAL PARASITES
IN THE WOLF'S GUT.
BUT THE RELATIONSHIP
BETWEEN FRUIT AND WOLF
ISN'T ALL ONE-SIDED.
THE WOLF HAS CARRIED THE SEEDS
OF THE LOBIRA PLANT FAR AND WIDE
AS THE WOLF ROAMS
LOOKING FOR FOOD.
THE LOBIRA PLANT GROWS
ON TOP OF MOUNDS OF EARTH,
AND THE MANED WOLVES ALSO POOP
ON TOP OF THESE MOUNDS
TO MARK THEIR TERRITORY.
AND INSIDE THAT POOP?
EWW.

(SCREAMS)

The announcer says LOBIRA PLANT SEEDS.
THE WOLF'S FRUITY DIET MEANS
WHAT GOES AROUND, COMES AROUND.
THE SEEDS GERMINATE,
NEW TREES GROW
AND THE CYCLE GOES ON.
THANKS TO THE MANED WOLF.

Alfie says WHAT AMAZING CREATURES.
SO COOL.
ALRIGHT, CREATURE FANS,
STILL TO COME ON TODAY'S SHOW.
AN AMAZING ANIMAL FACT,
WE MEET TODAY'S PET AND TELL
GUEST IN THE HOUSE.
THERE IS 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.

A caption reads "Did you know?"

The announcer says CUTTLEFISH ARE COLOUR-BLIND?
HOWEVER, THEY RELY
ON THEIR INCREDIBLE
CAMOUFLAGING ABILITIES
TO AVOID PREDATORS,
CHANGING COLOUR
ALMOST INSTANTANEOUSLY
TO MATCH THEIR SURROUNDINGS.
THEY CAN ALSO REPLICATE
THE SHAPE AND TEXTURE
OF NEARBY CORAL AND SEAWEED
ADDING AN EXTRA LAYER
OF CAMOUFLAGE.
WHEN THEY'RE THREATENED,
CUTTLEFISH WILL RELEASE
A CLOUD OF INK
TO HIDE THEMSELVES
FROM THE WOULD-BE PREDATOR.
AND THAT'S...

Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT.

Alfie says ALRIGHT, CREATURE MANIACS,
WE'VE COME TO THE PART
OF THE SHOW
I ALWAYS LOOK FORWARD TO,
WHERE I GET TO MEET
A SPECIAL GUEST
AND THEIR SPECIAL PET
RIGHT HERE IN THE HOUSE,
BUT FIRST, THERE'S THIS.

((music plays))

A clip shows a dog licking a lion’s mout.

The lion burps.

A caption reads "It’s Pet and Tell."

Alfie says INTRODUCING BROOKE.
SHE HAS BROUGHT IN HER PET CAT
TO TELL US MORE ABOUT IT.
WELCOME TO THE SHOW BROOKE.

Brooke is around 11, with long curly red hair and wears denim short and a red T-shirt. She holds a cat.

Brooke says HELLO, ALFIE.

Alfie says SO AHH WHO IS THIS?

Brooke says COCO POPS.

Alfie says COCO POPS.

Brooke says YEP.

Alfie says WHAT KIND OF CAT IS SHE?

Brooke says A CALICO.

Alfie says A CALICO CAT.

Brooke says YEP.

Alfie says CALICOS.
CALICOS ARE NEARLY
ALWAYS FEMALE.
CALICO CATS ARE ALSO KNOWN
AS TORTOISE SHELL CATS.
THERE MUST BE THREE
DISTINCT COLOURS PRESENT
IN ORDER TO BE A CALICO CAT:
WHITE, BLACK-GREY, BLUE,
RED-ORANGE, PEACH OR BROWN.
THEY ARE WARM HEARTED,
AFFECTIONATE AND ENDEARING.
THEY HAVE A GENERAL LIFE SPAN
OF ABOUT 15 YEARS.
CALICO KITTENS ARE VERY ACTIVE
AND ARE NOTORIOUS
FOR BOUNCING OFF THE WALLS.
IN JAPANESE CULTURE
THEY ARE A SIGN OF GOOD LUCK.
CALICO CATS.
SO TELL ME MORE ABOUT COCO POPS.
SHE SEEMS A LITTLE BIT RESTLESS.

Brooke says YEAH.

Alfie says SO IS SHE A GOOD CAT?

Brooke says YEAH, BECAUSE SHE IS NICE
AND CUDDLY
AND WHENEVER YOU GET SICK
SHE WILL JUST COME
AND GIVE YOU CUDDLES.

Alfie says OH WOW THAT'S REALLY NICE.

Brooke says YEAH AND SHE MOSTLY SLEEPS
WITH ME BECAUSE I HAVE MOST...
I HAVE MOST OF THE SOFT STUFF
IN MY BEDROOM.

Alfie says SO IS COCO AN INSIDE
OR OUTDOORS CAT?

Brooke says UMM, SHE'S LIKE KIND OF BOTH.

Alfie says WHERE DO YOU THINK SHE LIKES
TO SPEND MOST OF HER TIME?

Brooke says OUT THE BACK.

Alfie says OR IN YOUR BED?

Brooke says YEAH.

OUT THE BACK MOSTLY
BECAUSE SHE LIKES GOING
UNDERNEATH THE HOUSE.

Alfie says YEAH.
SO HOW OFTEN DO YOU FEED
COCO POPS?

Brooke says UMM I FEED HER EVERY NIGHT.

Alfie says IF OTHER PEOPLE WERE LOOKING
TO GET A PET CAT
WOULD YOU RECOMMEND IT?

Brooke says YEP.

Alfie says WHY IS THAT?

Brooke says BECAUSE THEY LOOK SO CUTE
AND SOMETIMES
THEY CAN GIVE YOU LOTS
OF CUDDLES WHEN YOU'RE SICK.

Alfie says WELL THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR
COMING ON THE SHOW TODAY BROOKE.

Brooke says THANK YOU, ALFIE.

Alfie says AND THANK YOU FOR INTRODUCING US
TO COCO POPS THE CAT.
OH LOOK AT HER.
SHE IS SO CUTE.
SPEAKING OF CUTE,
CHECK THIS OUT.

(QUACKING)

The announcer says DUCKS: THEY'RE PRETTY COOL,
THEY'RE ONE OF THE FEW ANIMALS
AT HOME
IN THE AIR, LAND AND WATER.
WITH AMAZING FEATHERS
THAT ARE WATER RESISTANT.
BUT DO YOU KNOW WHAT'S EVEN
COOLER THAN A DUCK?
A BABY DUCK.
LOOK AT THEM,
THEY'RE JUST SO FLUFFY,
WITH THERE TINY FEET,
AND ADORABLE LITTLE WADDLES.
THEY LOOK LIKE A CUDDLE TOY.
OH MY GOODNESS.
THEY'RE JUST...

Kids say TOO CUTE.

Alfie says IF YOU NEED ANOTHER DOSE
OF CUTENESS TUNE IN
ON THE NEXT EPISODE,
WE'LL HAVE MORE ADORABLE THEN.
BUT NEXT ON THE SHOW,
IT'S TIME TO EXPLORE
THE ENORMOUS CREATURE KINGDOM
AND FIND OUT SOME
FASCINATING FACTS IN...

A caption says "Creature Quiz."

The caption changes to "Which of these animals..."

The announcer says HAS THE ABILITY
TO REGROW ITS TAIL?
IS IT A THE PEACOCK
WHO, AS YOU CAN SEE,
HAS A BEAUTIFUL ARRAY
OF TAIL FEATHERS?
B THE LION,
RULER OF THE AFRICAN PLAINS,
REGENERATOR OF LOST TAILS MAYBE?
C THE LIZARD, CAN THIS GUY
GROW BACK ITS TAIL?
IF YOU ANSWERED B, THE LION,
YOU ARE INCORRECT.
I'D BE LYIN' IF I SAID THAT
THEY COULD GROW
THEIR TAILS BACK.
HOWEVER, IF YOU ANSWERED C
YOU'D BE CORRECT.
THE LIZARD CAN REGROW ITS TAIL.
SEVERAL SPECIES
OF THESE REPTILES
HAVE DEVELOPED A SPECIAL TRICK
FOR ESCAPING A PREDATOR.
FOR THIS TENERIFE LIZARD,
FROM THE CANARY ISLANDS
OFF THE COAST OF SPAIN,
THE BIGGEST THREAT
IS ANOTHER TENERIFE LIZARD.
DOMINANT BLUE SPOTTED MALES
ARE CONSTANTLY
FIGHTING OFF INTRUDERS COMPETING
FOR FOOD AND FEMALES.
A BATTLE CAN LAST
FOR 30 MINUTES,
BUT RATHER THAN RISK
SUFFERING A MORTAL INJURY,
THE LOSING LIZARD
CAN CREATE A DISTRACTION
BY DROPPING ITS TAIL.
THE NERVES IN THE TAIL
KEEP FIRING FOR A SHORT TIME
AFTER IT'S DETACHED.
SO WHILE HIS OPPONENT,
OR A PREDATOR,
IS PREOCCUPIED
WITH THE WRIGGLING TAIL,
THE MALE SNEAKS OFF TO SAFETY.
TALK ABOUT ATTENTION TO DE-TAIL.

A caption reads "Two Bobs."

Inside a hollow log, Rodent Bob 1 says UP AND AT EM, BOB.

Rodent Bob 2 says HOW MANY K'S
WE RUNNING TODAY, BOB?

Rodent Bob 1 says BOB BACK UP WE'RE STUCK,
COME ON.

Rodent Bob 1 says OH CRAMP BOB,
I HAVE GOT A CRAMP.

Rodent Bob 1 says ALREADY BOB?

They go for a run.

Rodent Bob 1 says FEELING THE BURN BOB?

Rodent Bob 2 says I AM NOT BURNT BOB.

Rodent Bob 1 says NO, NO,
I MEAN YOUR LEGS.
ARE YOUR LEGS HURTING?

Rodent Bob 2 says OH THEY ARE BOB.
IS THAT GOOD?

Rodent Bob 1 says YEAH.
OKAY BETTER GET SOME CARBS.

Rodent Bob 2 says OH, MMM GRASS.
THIS IS GOOD GRASS.

Rodent Bob 1 says YEAH THAT WAS A GOOD
TWO-MINUTE WORKOUT BOB.

Rodent Bob 2 says TO THE MAX, BOB.

Rodent Bob 1 says WE REALLY EARNT
THIS 23 HOUR NAP, BOB.

Rodent Bob 2 says YEAH.
UMM, YOU'RE ON MY LEG, BOB.

Alfie says AWW, THOSE BOBS ARE BRILLIANT.
WELL, CREATURE MANIACS,
WE HAVE SO MUCH MORE
STILL TO COME ON THE SHOW.
WE'VE GOT ANOTHER INCREDIBLE
ANIMAL FACT,
SOME FASCINATING PONDERING
FROM OUR ROLLIE 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'S STILL TO COME
RIGHT HERE ON
CREATURE MANIA.

A caption reads "Did you know?"

The announcer says A QUOLL IS A CARNIVOROUS
MARSUPIAL
NATIVE TO MAINLAND AUSTRALIA,
NEW GUINEA, AND TASMANIA?

A quoll sniffs.

The announcer says THE NORTHERN QUOLL
IS THE SMALLEST
OF THE FOUR AUSTRALIAN
QUOLL SPECIES.
NORTHERN QUOLLS
ARE ESPECIALLY VULNERABLE
TO BEING POISONED BY CANE TOADS.
DURING THE LAST FEW DECADES,
AS CANE TOADS HAVE SPREAD
ACROSS NORTHERN AUSTRALIA,
POPULATIONS OF NORTHERN QUOLLS
HAVE DECLINED TO THE VERGE
OF EXTINCTION.

The quoll says OH NO.

The announcer says AND THAT'S...

Kids say ANIMAL FACT.

Alfie says ALRIGHT CREATURE FANS,
TIME TO GET A BIT PHILOSOPHICAL,
WITH A BEAR WHO LIKES TO BROOD,
HE LIKES TO WEIGH UP
AND CHEW OVER AND STUDY
AND REVIEW.
YES, IT'S OUR FAVOURITE
BAMBOO-EATING,
ROLLIE POLY, ADORABLE...

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

A panda lying on its back says DO YOU KNOW
WHAT I DON'T UNDERSTAND?
COOKING.
I MEAN, WHY IS IT THAT
WHEN HUMANS COOK THINGS,
SOME FOODS GO ALL HARD,
WHILE OTHER FOODS
GO ALL SOFT AND FLOPPY?
BUT WHEN HUMANS FREEZE THINGS
EVERYTHING GOES HARD.
WHY DO THEY HAVE TO COOK
AND FREEZE THINGS
IN THE FIRST PLACE?
WHY DON'T THEY JUST EAT
THEIR FOOD RAW LIKE I DO?
IMAGINE COOKING BAMBOO.
(LAUGHS)

Alfie says WEIRD.
SO STRANGE.
LET'S MOVE ON.
TIME TO HEAD OVER FOR STEP THREE
OF THE BOW
AND FIND OUT IF JAYDEN
AND RUBY CAN NAIL IT.
THIS IS DOG TRICKS.

Katrina says WELCOME BACK.
WE'RE TEACHING GORGEOUS RUBY
HOW TO DO THE BOW.

Jayden says YES.

Katrina says SHE IS DOING GREAT SO FAR
ISN'T SHE?
WE HAVE GOT HER BOWING.
WE HAVE GOT A LITTLE BIT
OF SUPPORT UNDER HER
IN CASE SHE NEEDS IT
BUT I DON'T THINK
SHE NEEDS IT ANYMORE.
OKAY HERE IS WHAT
YOU ARE GOING TO DO
AND JUST BEFORE WE DO IT
WE SHOULD ADD ALWAYS MAKE SURE
YOU HAVE GOT ADULT SUPERVISION
WHENEVER YOU ARE DOING
ANY DOG TRAINING
OR TEACHING TRICKS.
ALWAYS GOT TO BE SAFE.
OKAY, HERE IS WHAT YOU DO.
GRAB YOUR TREAT,
SAME THING AS BEFORE,
PUTTING IT DOWN BETWEEN THE LEGS
AND IF SHE PUTS
THOSE ELBOWS DOWN
LOTS OF PRAISE AND A REWARD.
OKAY?

Jayden says OKAY.

Katrina says GO FOR IT.
TAKE YOUR HAND OFF HER.
THAT'S IT PERFECT.
OH NEARLY.
SHE WENT RIGHT DOWN.
LET'S TRY THAT ONE MORE TIME.
THERE YOU GO.
OKAY NOW THE TREAT ON THE NOSE.
SAY BOW AS SHE GOES DOWN.
BOW. GOOD GIRL.
YES.
WELL DONE.
THAT WAS GREAT.
ARE YOU PROUD OF RUBY?

Jayden says YES.

Katrina says SHOULD BE PROUD OF YOURSELF
AS WELL.
THAT'S A GREAT EFFORT.

Jayden says THANK YOU.

Katrina says IT'S GOOD FUN BONDING WITH DOGS
WHILE TRAINING.

Jayden says YES.

Katrina says YEAH.
OKAY WELL I HOPE YOU HAVE
ENJOYED TODAY'S DOG TRICK.
WE WILL BE BACK NEXT TIME
WITH MORE.

Alfie says THANKS, KATRINA.
AWESOME WORK JAYDEN AND RUBY.
I THINK RUBY IS DEFINITELY KEEN
TO DO MORE TRAINING
NOW THAT SHE'S FIGURED OUT
SHE GETS DELICIOUS TREATS
EVERY TIME.
WELL, CREATURE FANS
THAT'S THE END OF THE SHOW.
I HOPE YOU ENJOYED MEETING
BROOKE AND HER CAT,
AND ALSO FINDING OUT ALL ABOUT
THE AMAZING MANED WOLF,
THEY'RE SO COOL.
REMEMBER ANIMALS ARE AWESOME
AND PETS ARE PALS.
I'M ALFIE,
