(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 IT'S COMPLETELY
CREATURE CRAZY.
IT'S
CREATURE MANIA.
ON TODAY'S EPISODE
WE'VE GOT SOME CRITTERS
TO REALLY DELIGHT.

Clips show different types of animals as Alfie says WE CHECK OUT KILLER BEES,
FOR REAL.
KILLER BEES.
BUST SOME TERMITE MOUNDS
WITH AN ANTEATER
AND LOOK AT SOME BIG-EYED OWLS.
WE HAVE A LAUGH WITH PANDA
AND PONY,
GET CLOSE TO SOME SNAPPY
YOUNG ALLIGATORS
AND A LIZARD YOU'LL JUST LOVE
IN PET AND TELL.
PLUS, LOTS, LOTS MORE.
WE'VE GOT A JAM PACKED SHOW
COMING YOUR WAY
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 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 I AM JOINED BY THE TALENTED,
INCREDIBLE WONDER DOGS.
TODAY WE'RE GOING TO SHOW YOU
HOW TO TEACH YOUR DOG TO DROP
OR LIE DOWN
AND TRICK IS GOING TO
DEMONSTRATE THIS FOR US.
LET'S LEARN A LITTLE BIT ABOUT
TRICK FIRST.
MEET TRICK, HE'S FIVE YEARS OLD.
HIS NICKNAMES ARE TRICKY
AND THE TRICKSTER.
TRICK IS AN AGILITY CHAMPION.
HE DID HIS FIRST STAGE SHOW
WHEN HE WAS JUST EIGHT WEEKS OLD
AND HE HAS NOT STOPPED
PERFORMING SINCE.
HIS FAVOURITE TRICKS INCLUDE
FETCHING THINGS TO PUT AWAY,
RUNNING IN CIRCLES
AND PLAYING DEAD.
HE'S DEFINITELY THE FUN LOVING
CRAZY ONE WHO RARELY SITS STILL.

Clips show the dog doing its favourite activities

Katrina says HIS PET HATES: NOT BEING ALLOWED
TO RUN
NAUGHTIEST DEED: HE'S ALWAYS
STIRRING UP THE OTHERS.
FAVOURITE TREAT: SAUSAGE.
THREE WORDS TO DESCRIBE TRICK:
NAUGHTY, ACTIVE AND PLAYFUL.
OKAY LET'S SEE TRICK
DEMONSTRATE.

A caption reads "Learn to Drop."

Katrina says TRICK.
DROP.
GOOD BOY.
DROP IS A NATURAL FOLLOW ON
FROM SIT.
IT'S A COMFORTABLE POSITION
FOR DOGS TO HOLD
AND IT GIVES YOU CONTROL
IN MANY SITUATIONS.
FOR EXAMPLE IF YOU HAVE VISITORS
IN THE HOUSE.
WELL NOW WE'VE SEEN AN EXPERT
DEMONSTRATION,
LET'S GO SEE WHO'S HERE TO TRAIN
THEIR DOG.
I AM HERE TODAY WITH ALYSSA
AND HER GORGEOUS DOG KHALEESI.
TELL ME A LITTLE BIT
ABOUT KHALEESI.

Alyssa is around 11, with long wavy brown hair in a braided do and wears blue shorts and a yellow T-shirt.

Alyssa says KHALEESI IS A GOLDEN RETRIEVER
AND SHE LOVES TO PLAY
WITH OTHER DOGS.

Katrina says AHH SO SHE HAS GOT A BEAUTIFUL
TEMPERAMENT.

Alyssa says YEAH.

Katrina says IF YOU WERE GOING TO DESCRIBE
HER PERSONALITY
IN THREE WORDS
WHAT WOULD YOU SAY?

Alyssa says SHE IS NICE, LOVING AND PLAYFUL.

Katrina says OH SHE IS BEAUTIFUL.
HAS SHE GOT ANY NAUGHTY HABITS?

Alyssa says WHEN SHE WAS A PUPPY SHE CHEWED
UP STUFF
AND SHE CHEWED UP A REMOTE.

Katrina says OH SEE I HAVE A GOLDEN RETRIEVER
AND THEY LOVE TO CHEW.
DO YOU DO ANY TRAINING
WITH HER?

Alyssa says YES.

Katrina says WHAT KIND
OF TRAINING DO YOU DO?

Alyssa says WE DO SIT DOWN, SHAKE HANDS
AND SOMETIMES SHE ROLLS OVER.

Katrina says FANTASTIC AND DO YOU FIND YOU
GUYS GET A LOT OF HAIR
AROUND THE HOUSE?
BECAUSE MY DOG SHEDS
SO MUCH HAIR.

Alyssa says YES.

Katrina says DOES IT DRIVE YOUR PARENTS
CRAZY?

Alyssa says YES.

Katrina says YES AND IN THE CAR AS WELL?

Alyssa says YES.

Katrina says I KNOW.
I HAVE A VERY GOOD VACUUM
FOR THAT.
WOULD YOU LIKE TO DO SOME TRICK
TRAINING WITH HER?

Alyssa says YES.

Katrina says OKAY LET'S GO.
TODAY ALYSSA
AND I ARE GOING TO TEACH
KHALEESI TO LIE DOWN OR DROP.
NOW THE FIRST STEP TO THIS IS
JUST TO ASK HER TO SIT.
SO WE'LL CALL HER IN.
YOU'VE GOT A TREAT?

Alyssa says YEP.

Katrina says SO HOLD THAT ABOVE HER NOSE
AND WHEN SHE, BOTTOM GOES
ON THE GROUND SHE GETS THE TREAT
AND THAT WILL BE STEP ONE.
OKAY LET'S CALL HER.

Alyssa says KHALESSI.

Katrina says ASK HER TO SIT.

Alyssa says SIT.

Katrina says GOOD GIRL
AND GIVE HER THE TREAT.
GOOD GIRL.
GOOD GIRL.
AND THAT IS STEP ONE.
WE WILL BE BACK WITH STEP TWO
WHICH IS ASKING HER TO TILT HER
HEAD TOWARDS THE GROUND.

Alfie says GAH.
THAT FLUFFY MOUNTAIN KHALEESI
IS ADORABLE.
I THINK I NEED A GOLDEN
RETRIEVER IN MY LIFE.
WE'LL CHECK ON THEM LATER
IN THE SHOW
AND SEE HOW THEY'RE DOING
WITH LEARNING THE DROP.
BUT NOW IT'S TIME FOR
AN ANIMAL FACT.

An announcer says DID YOU KNOW THAT... ..WHEN ANTEATERS
MOVE THEIR CLAWS ARE CURLED
UNDER THEIR FEET
SO THEY MOVE AROUND
ON THEIR KNUCKLES?
ALSO TO CATCH THEIR PREY,
ANTEATERS FLICK THEIR VERY
STICKY,
SALIVA-COVERED TONGUES INTO
ANTS' NESTS AND TERMITE MOUNDS,
AND THEN RETRACT IT WITH INSECTS
AND EGGS STUCK ON.
THE PREY ARE SCRAPED OFF
IN THE MOUTH BY THE JAW
AND SIMPLY SWALLOWED,
WHERE THEIR VERY MUSCULAR
STOMACHS GRIND THEM UP
AND DIGEST THEM.
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 THE TWO BOBS.

Crocodile Bob 1 says WE DON'T JUDGE AT MEAT EATERS
ANONYMOUS.
SO WHY DON'T YOU START BY
TELLING US
WHAT HAPPENED LAST NIGHT?

Crocodile Bob 2 says NOTHING HAPPENED LAST NIGHT BOB.

Crocodile Bob 1 says NO.

Crocodile Bob 2 says NO.
I DID NOT EAT THAT
BUSH TURKEY BOB.

Crocodile Bob 1 says YOU'RE DENIAL IS QUITE SPECIFIC
BOB.

Crocodile Bob 2 says DID NOT TASTE ANYTHING LIKE
CHICKEN.

Crocodile Bob 1 says LOOK AT ME BOB.

Crocodile Bob 2 says NO.

Crocodile Bob 1 says BOB?

Crocodile Bob 2 says NO.

Crocodile Bob 1 says IS THERE SOMETHING YOU NEED
TO GET OFF YOUR CHEST?

Crocodile Bob 2 says OFF MY CHEST.
IT'S IN MY CHEST.
THAT TURKEY IS INSIDE MY CHEST,
SPECIFICALLY THE STOMACH.

Crocodile Bob 1 says HA.
BUSTED BOB.
BUSTED.

Crocodile Bob 2 says HA HA TO YOU BOB.
IT WAS THREE TURKEYS FOLLOWED BY
A PIG CARCASS
AND I ATE THEM ALL
AND LOVED IT BOB.
HA HA HA.

Crocodile 2 goes in the water.

Crocodile Bob 1 says ALL RIGHT JUST,
JUST LIE THERE LIKE A LOG
AND PRETEND NONE
OF THIS IS HAPPENING
AND I DON'T JUDGE BY THE WAY.

Alfie says WHAT A PAIR.
THOSE TWO BOBS.
WE'LL HEAR FROM THEM AGAIN
A BIT LATER ON 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
IS THE BIGGEST FISH IN THE SEA?
IS IT A THE WHALE SHARK?
B THE HUMPBACK WHALE?
OR C THE PIRANHA?
OKAY IT'S PROBABLY NOT
THE PIRANHA.
THE BIGGEST FISH IN THE SEA
IS A THE WHALE SHARK.
BY THE WAY,
THE HUMPBACK WHALE IS COMPARABLE
IN SIZE, BUT KEEP
IN MIND THAT WHALES ARE NOT
FISH, THEY'RE MAMMALS,
WHICH MEANS THE HUMPBACK
IS DISQUALIFIED
FROM THIS CREATURE QUIZ
QUESTION.
THE WHALE SHARK IS A SLOW
MOVING, FILTER FEEDING SHARK
THAT CAN GROW UP TO AROUND
THIRTEEN METRES
AND WEIGH IN AT TWENTY-TWO TONS.
IT HOLDS MANY RECORDS FOR
SHEER SIZE IN THE ANIMAL KINGDOM
AND MOST NOTABLY BEING
BY FAR THE LARGEST LIVING,
NON MAMMALIAN VERTEBRATE.
IT IS FOUND IN OPEN WATERS
OF THE TROPICAL OCEANS
AND IS RARELY FOUND IN WATERS
BELOW
TWENTY-TWO DEGREES CELSIUS.
IT STANDS TO REASON THAT THE
BIGGEST FISH
WILL HAVE THE BIGGEST MOUTH.
AN AVERAGE SIZED WHALE SHARK CAN
HAVE A ONE POINT TWO-METRE-WIDE
MOUTH ON A SEVEN AND A HALF
METRE BODY.
IT MAY HAVE THREE THOUSAND
SHARPLY HOOKED TEETH, BUT ALL
OF THEM ARE ONLY A FEW
MILLIMETRES LONG.
THIS SHARK ISN'T INTERESTED
IN SINKING ITS TEETH
INTO ANYTHING,
BECAUSE IT'S REALLY JUST
A BIG SUCKER.
THE WHALE SHARK PREFERS PLANKTON
TO HUMANS.
LIKE A GIGANTIC VACUUM CLEANER,
IT SUCKS UP SEAWATER
AND FILTERS PLANKTON
FROM NEARLY A MILLION LITRES
OF WATER EVERY HOUR.
THE WHALE SHARK IS LIKE A HUGE
FLOATING REEF, PROVIDING SHELTER
FOR MANY SPECIES OF FISH,
AND THE ODD LEFTOVER
FROM THAT MASSIVE MOUTH.

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... ..THAT WHEN A KILLER BEE
STINGS,
IT SMELLS LIKE BANANAS?
THIS INDICATES TO OTHER BEES
THAT THEY SHOULD STING TOO.
WHICH IS WHY THIS PRACTICE CAN
POTENTIALLY BE
EXTREMELY DANGEROUS.

A man without a beekeeper’s suit appears covered in bees.

The announcer says BEE BEARDING IS THE PRACTICE
OF WEARING HUNDREDS OF BEES
ON YOUR FACE,
USUALLY AS A SIDESHOW-TYPE
DEMONSTRATION AT CARNIVALS
AND AGRICULTURAL SHOWS,
AND WAS INITIALLY INVENTED TO
DEMONSTRATE THE BEEKEEPER'S
RAPPORT WITH THE INSECTS.
AND THAT'S...

Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT.

Alfie says KILLER BEE'S YIKES.
BUT DO YOU KNOW AN ANIMAL THAT
WOULDN'T HURT A FLY?
A GIANT FLUFFY GOLDEN RETRIEVER,
CALLED KHALEESI.
SHE'S JUST A BUNDLE
OF SWEETNESS.
LET'S FIND OUT HOW THINGS
ARE GOING
IN THE DOG CAMP WITH KATRINA.
IT'S TIME FOR STEP TWO OF DROP.
I BET SHE'S GOING TO NAIL IT.
IT'S DOG TRICKS.

Katrina says WELCOME BACK.
ALYSSA AND I ARE BUSY TEACHING
KHALEESI
HOW TO LIE DOWN OR DROP.
SO WE'VE MASTERED
THE FIRST STEP,
WHICH IS ASKING HER TO SIT.
THE SECOND STEP IS TO GET HER TO
TILT HER HEAD TOWARDS THE GROUND
OR TO GET HER TO BE COMFORTABLE
DOING THAT.
SO LET'S CALL HER IN.

Alyssa says KHALEESI COME ON.

Katrina says COME ON SWEETIE.
SO WE WILL GET YOU TO SIT.
GOOD GIRL AND THEN I AM JUST
GOING TO GET HER TO FOLLOW
THE TREAT JUST LIKE THAT.
GOOD GIRL.
OKAY WELL THAT WAS STEP TWO.
WE ARE GOING TO KEEP
PRACTICING THAT.
WE WILL BE BACK SOON
WITH STEP THREE,
WHICH IS TEACHING HER TO TAKE
HER HEAD ALL THE WAY DOWN
TO THE GROUND AND LYING DOWN.

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

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 WHAT DID THE CINDERELLA FISH
WEAR TO THE BALL?
GLASS FLIPPERS.
HOW ABOUT THIS ONE?
WHY DON'T MICE LIKE TO SWIM?
BECAUSE OF THE CAT FISH SILLY.

(chuckles)

Kids say BAD PUN PONY YAY!

Alfie says SHE'S A CRACK UP.
WE'LL HAVE MORE OF 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 A DIFFERENT NAME
FOR THE MALE AND FEMALE
OF THE SPECIES?
IS IT A THE KANGAROO?
B THE FIRE BREATHING,
OKAY NOT REALLY,
BUT THAT WOULD BE COOL,
WOULDN'T IT?
WHERE WAS I?
OH YEAH, B THE KOMODO DRAGON?
OR C THE PEACOCK?
IF YOU ANSWERED C THE PEACOCK,
YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY CORRECT.
THE TERM PEACOCK ONLY REFERENCES
THE MALE OF THE SPECIES,
AS THE FEMALES ARE ACTUALLY
PEAHENS.
THE PEACOCK IS A FABULOUS BIRD,
WITH FLASHY GOOD LOOKS
AND COOL MOVES.
BUT BEFORE THE MALE CAN SHOW OFF
HIS GORGEOUS FEATHERS,
HE'S GOT TO GET THE ATTENTION
OF HIS POTENTIAL MATE.
AND HE KNOWS THE BEST WAY TO
A PEAHEN'S HEART
IS THROUGH HER STOMACH,
SO HE PRETENDS HE'S FOUND A HUGE
PILE OF SEEDS.
HAVING GOT HER ATTENTION,
HE NOW NEEDS TO SHOW HER
HIS MUCH PRIZED,
AND HEAVY, TAIL.
THAT TAIL IS MORE THAN
TWO AND A HALF METRES WIDE
AND CONTAINS OVER 200 FEATHERS.
IT'S AN EYE-CATCHING DISPLAY,
BUT IT PUTS A LOT OF PRESSURE
ON THE MALE.

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... ..THAT MANY OWL
SPECIES HAVE ASYMMETRICAL EARS?
WHEN LOCATED AT DIFFERENT
HEIGHTS ON THE OWL'S HEAD,
THEIR EARS ARE ABLE TO PINPOINT
THE LOCATION OF SOUNDS
IN MULTIPLE DIMENSIONS.
ALSO, IN ORDER FOR AN OWL
TO LOOK AT SOMETHING,
IT NEEDS TO MOVE ITS WHOLE HEAD,
WHICH IS FINE BECAUSE OWLS
CAN ROTATE THEIR NECKS
270 DEGREES.
A BLOOD-POOLING SYSTEM COLLECTS
BLOOD TO POWER THEIR BRAINS
AND EYES WHEN NECK MOVEMENT
CUTS OFF CIRCULATION.
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.
((music plays))

A clip shows a dog floating on a pool float.

A caption reads "It’s pet and Tell."

Alfie says WELCOME TO THE SHOW
COOPER AND AMELIA.

Cooper says THANK YOU ALFIE.

Cooper is around 10, with short wavy light blond hair and wears black and white checker shorts and a red T-shirt.

Emilia says THANK YOU ALFIE.

Emilia is around 10, with long straight light brown hair with a braided do and wears jeans and a green T-shirt. She holds a bearded dragon.

Alfie says SO AHH WHO IS THIS LITTLE GUY?

Cooper says FRANKIE.

Alfie says THAT'S FRANKIE
AND AHH COOPER WHAT IS FRANKIE?

Cooper says UMM SHE IS A BEARDED DRAGON.

Alfie says SHE IS A BEARDED DRAGON.
WOW.
SO WHAT MADE YOU GUYS COME UP
WITH THE NAME FRANKIE?

Emilia says WE DIDN'T KNOW IF IT WAS A BOY
OR A GIRL
SO WE JUST NAMED IT FRANKIE.

Alfie says SO LATER YOU FOUND OUT IT WAS
A GIRL.

They both say YEAH.

Alfie says BEARDED DRAGONS.
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 THEIR COLOUR
OF THEIR SKIN
FROM LIGHT TO DARK.
BEARDED DRAGONS.
SO WHAT DOES FRANKIE EAT?

Cooper says CRICKETS, WOODIES, LETTUCE,
APPLES, STRAWBERRIES,
UMM CELERY, CARROT.
YEAH THAT'S ALL.

Alfie says SO COOPER YOU HAVE
THE RESPONSIBILITY
OF FEEDING FRANKIE?

Cooper says DAD.

Emilia says THAT MEANS DAD HAS TO PICK UP
THE POO ALL THE TIME.

Cooper says YES.

Alfie says SO YOU GUYS JUST STAY AWAY
FROM POO ALTOGETHER?
IT'S TOO YUCKY.

Emilia says YEAH.

Alfie says SO TELL US MORE ABOUT FRANKIE.
SO HE IS COLD BLOODED?

Cooper says HE IS COLD BLOODED.

Alfie says YEAH WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?

Cooper says UMM WHEN HE'S IN THE SUN
HE IS CRAZY.
AND WHEN HE IS IN THE COLDNESS
HE JUST UMM,
HE IS REALLY LAZY.

Alfie says WHAT'S YOUR FAVOURITE THING
ABOUT FRANKIE?

Cooper says I MOST OF THE TIME GET
FRANKIE OUT,
GET HER SOMETIMES ON MY HEAD
AND WE START TO WATCH
TV TOGETHER.

Alfie says OH REALLY.
SO WHAT'S THE THING YOU DON'T
LIKE ABOUT FRANKIE?

Emilia says AHH THE POO.

Alfie says WELL THANK YOU SO MUCH
FOR COMING IN TODAY GUYS.

Cooper says NO WORRIES.

Emilia says NO WORRIES.

Alfie says OH AND HE IS ABOUT TO JUMP.
HELLO.
AND THANK YOU FOR BRINGING
IN FRANKIE
TO TELL US MORE ABOUT HIM.

Emilia says YOU'RE WELCOME.

Cooper says NO WORRIES.

Alfie says CHECK THIS OUT GUYS.

The announcer says ALLIGATORS ARE PRETTY SCARY
LOOKING, ARMOUR PLATED SKIN,
SHARP POINTED TEETH, AND A HABIT
OF EATING ANYTHING THAT MOVES.
YIKES.
BUT THAT'S NOT HOW THEY
START OUT.
WHEN THEY'RE BORN THEY'RE KINDA
SOFT AND CUDDLY.
THEY LOOK LIKE TEENY DINOSAURS,
THEY'RE SO SMALL
THEIR MUM CARRIES THEM
IN HER MOUTH
AND TEACHES THEM TO SWIM.
AWE LOOK AT THEM WITH THEIR BIG
EYES, THERE'RE NOT SCARY AT ALL.
IN FACT I WANT ONE.
WHY?
BECAUSE THEY'RE...

Kids say TOO CUTE.

Alfie says GAH THAT WAS SO CUTE.
ALL RIGHT 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 CREATURE QUIZ.

The announcer says WHICH OF THESE ANIMALS
BELONG TO A SPECIES
WHOSE ENTIRE GROUP IS
CONSIDERED ENDANGERED
OR THREATENED?
IS IT A THE MOON HOWLING
BEAUTIFUL
AND WILD WOLF SPECIES?
OR B OUR BUZZING POLLINATING
BUDDIES THE BEE?
OR C THE ENTIRE SPECIES
OF BIG CATS
FROM JAGUARS TO TIGERS?
IF YOU THOUGHT B THE BEE,
YOU'D BE INCORRECT.
ALTHOUGH BEE NUMBERS ARE
DIMINISHING THERE'RE STILL
PLENTY OF VARIETIES THRIVING,
SO THAT MEANS THE BEE WILL BE
HERE FOR YEARS TO COME.
THE ANSWER IS ACTUALLY C,
BIG CATS ARE ENDANGERED.

A big cat says YA HOO.

The announcer says SHOCKINGLY, ALL SEVEN SPECIES
OF BIG CAT ARE UNDER THREAT
OF EXTINCTION.
BUT HOPEFULLY WE CAN FIX THAT AS
MORE AND MORE ANIMALS,
SUCH AS TIGERS AND LIONS,
ARE BEING LOOKED AFTER
IN SPECIAL SANCTUARIES.
A SANCTUARY ISN'T A ZOO.
IT'S THE FINAL DESTINATION
FOR ANIMALS THAT HAVE SUFFERED
IRRESPONSIBLE PET OWNERSHIP AT
ITS WORST
AND THE FINAL REFUGE FOR
ANIMALS
WHOSE HABITAT IS UNDER THREAT
FROM MANKIND.

People say OH NO.

The announcer says THEY MAY HAVE BEEN AN UNWANTED
PET OR A RETIRED PERFORMING
ANIMAL OR EVEN TAKEN AWAY
FROM THEIR OWNERS BY THE POLICE.
OBVIOUSLY LIVING
IN THE WILD WOULD BE BETTER
BUT THE SANCTUARY OWNERS TRY
AND MAKE THEM AS FUN AS PLACE AS
POSSIBLE FOR THEIR
FELINE FRIENDS.

The big cat says YA HOO.

The announcer says SO HOW DO YOU IMPROVE THE LIFE
OF A WILD ANIMAL THAT'S CONFINED
IN AN ENCLOSURE?
YOU MAKE SURE IT HAS LOTS
OF GAMES TO PLAY TO KEEP
ITS MIND AND BODY ACTIVE.
IT'S CALLED ENRICHMENT.
IT'S A TECHNIQUE TO MAKE SURE
THE ANIMALS HAVE SOMETHING TO DO
EVERY DAY.

The big cat says YEAH.

The announcer says SANCTUARIES MAY NOT BE PERFECT
BUT THEY HELP KEEP THESE CATS
PURRING AND GIVE THEM A REAL
CHANCE OF SURVIVAL.

People say HOORAY.

A caption reads "Two Bobs."

White Llama Bob says HEY BOB WHERE ARE YOU?
BOB?
BOB?

Brown Llama Bob says BOB?

White Llama Bob says WHERE ARE YOU BOB?

Brown Llama Bob says I CAN'T SEE YOU BOB.

White Llama Bob says OH THERE YOU ARE.

Brown Llama Bob says OP OH WHERE?

White Llama Bob says HEY BOB?

Brown Llama Bob says YEP?

White Llama Bob says HOW MUCH WOOD WOULD A WOODCHUCK
CHUCK IF A WOODCHUCK
COULD CHUCK WOOD?

Brown Llama Bob says AHH I GIVE UP.

White Llama Bob says OH I THOUGH YOU'D KNOW.

Brown Llama Bob says WELL I DON'T.

White Llama Bob says I THINK IT'S SEVEN.

Brown Llama Bob says OKAY.

White Llama Bob says OKAY.
DON'T YOU WANT TO KNOW HOW I
CAME UP WITH THAT NUMBER BOB?

Brown Llama Bob says SURE.

White Llama Bob says I THINK A WOOD CHUCK WOULD BE
TOO TIRED TO CHUCK EIGHT BITS
OF WOOD BECAUSE WOOD CHUCKS
AREN'T VERY BIG OR STRONG.

Brown Llama Bob says I DON'T THINK THAT'S NECESSARILY
TRUE BOB.

White Llama Bob says UNLESS THE WOOD IS SMALLER,
THEN IT'S PROBABLY ELEVEN.

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... ..POT-BELLIED SEAHORSES USE
CAMOUFLAGE
AS A MAJOR SOURCE OF DEFENCE?
THEIR BROWN, YELLOW, GREY,
WHITE, AND ORANGE MARKINGS
ACROSS THEIR HEADS AND BODIES
ALLOW THEM TO BLEND INTO
THE WEEDS AND SEA GRASSES
OF THEIR SURROUNDINGS.
THEY ARE OFTEN FOUND
IN ROCKY REEFS
IN SHALLOW WATERS AMONGST
THE VERY WEEDS THEY BLEND INTO.
THEY ARE IN ABUNDANCE
IN THE SEA GRASSES
OF OPEN WATERS AS WELL.
AND INTERESTINGLY,
THEIR EYES ARE ON THE SIDES
OF THEIR HEADS AND CAN MOVE
INDEPENDENTLY OF EACH OTHER.
AND THAT'S...

Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT.

Alfie says GREAT FACT RIGHT?
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.

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

A panda lying on its back says DO YOU EVER THINK ABOUT FLIES?
I MEAN, REALLY THINK
ABOUT FLIES.
ARE THEY ONLY CALLED FLIES
BECAUSE THEY CAN FLY?
WHAT HAPPENS IF LIKE,
A FLY LOSES ITS WINGS
AND CAN'T FLY ANYMORE?
SHOULD IT BE CALLED A WALK?
AND IF FLIES ARE CALLED FLIES
BECAUSE THEY CAN FLY, THEN,
I MEAN, WHY AREN'T I CALLED
A BAMBOO MUNCHER?
NO ONE KNOWS.

Alfie says AND THAT MY FRIENDS WAS
PONDERING PANDA.
HE'S ONE OF A KIND.
MOVING ON.
IT'S TIME NOW TO HEAD OVER
TO DR. KATRINA
AND FIND OUT IF KHALEESI CAN
MASTER THE FINAL STEP OF DROP.
IT IS DOG TRICKS.

Katrina says WELCOME BACK.
ALYSSA AND I HAVE BEEN BUSY
TEACHING KHALEESI TO DROP
OR LIE DOWN.
NOW WE HAS MASTERED THE FIRST
TWO STEPS,
WHICH HAVE BEEN TO SIT AND TO
BE COMFORTABLE TILTING
HER HEAD AND NOW THE FINAL STEP
IS TO GET HER TO LIE DOWN
ALL THE WAY ON THE GROUND
SO I AM GOING TO GIVE YOU
A COUPLE OF TREATS.
GET YOU TO CALL HER IN.
GET HER TO SIT AGAIN, HEAD TILT
AND THEN HOPEFULLY SHE WILL
FOLLOW THAT TREAT TO THE GROUND.
WE CAN DO IT NICE AND SLOWLY
AND THEN SHE GETS THE TREAT.
WE CALL HER.

Alyssa says YEP.

Katrina says OKAY KHALEESI.

Alyssa says KHALEESI.

Katrina says GIVE YOU YOUR TREAT.
OH YOU HAVE GOT A TREAT.
GOOD ONE SIT.
AND HEAD DOWN AND THEN SLOWLY
TO THE GROUND.
YOU CAN GO DOWN WITH HER.
THAT'S IT AND WHEN SHE GETS DOWN
ON THE GROUND
SHE GETS THAT TREAT.
WELL DONE, SHE DID IT.
SO THAT'S HOW YOU TEACH
THE DOWN.

Alyssa says YES.

Katrina says DO YOU THINK SHE'LL BE ABLE
TO DO THAT AT HOME?
OH HERE WE GO AGAIN.
DO YOU WANT TO GO AGAIN?
YOU SIT AND DOWN.
GOOD GIRL.
SO SHE GETS THAT TREAT AS SOON
AS SHE LIES DOWN.
I THINK SHE HAS DONE
REALLY WELL.
WELL DONE YOU DID GREAT.

Alyssa says YES.

Katrina says YOU PROUD OF HER?
SHE'S DONE A GREAT JOB.
SO HAVE YOU.
KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.
I DO HOPE YOU'VE ENJOYED TODAY'S
SEGMENT.
WE'LL BE BACK NEXT TIME WITH
ANOTHER DOG TRICK.

Alfie says WELL WE'VE HAD FLUFFY GOLDEN
RETRIEVERS
AND A BEARDED DRAGON TODAY.
WHAT WILL WE HAVE NEXT TIME?
IF YOU WANT TO FIND OUT MORE
COOL STUFF
AND SOME MORE AMAZING ANIMALS,
LIKE TODAY'S WHALE SHARK,
YOU KNOW WHERE TO FIND ME.
AND REMEMBER ANIMALS ARE AWESOME
AND PETS ARE PALS.
I'M ALFIE
