(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 GO APE WITH THE GIBBON,
CHECK OUT THE SUPER WEIRD
LOOKING OKAPI
AND GET WRIGGLY
WITH THE COMMON EARTHWORM.
WE HAVE A LAUGH WITH PANDA
AND PONY,
HANG OUT WITH SOME
WOBBLY WALLABIES
AND MEET A KING CHARLES CAVALIER
IN PET AND TELL.
PLUS, LOTS, LOTS MORE.
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.
HI AND WELCOME TO 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 I AM DR. KATRINA.
I'M JOINED BY THE BEAUTIFUL
WONDER DOGS.
TODAY WE'RE GOING TO SHOW YOU
HOW TO TEACH YOUR DOG
TO GIVE A HIGH TEN.
NOW HANDSOME FLYNN IS GOING TO
DEMONSTRATE THIS FOR US.
LET'S LEARN A BIT ABOUT
HIM FIRST.
HEY FLYNNY.
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.
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.

Clips show the dog doing its favourite activities.

Katrina says THREE WORDS TO DESCRIBE FLYNN:
HANDSOME, CLEVER AND LOYAL.
NOW LET'S SEE FLYNN
DEMONSTRATE.

A caption reads "High Ten."

Katrina says HEY.
HIGH TEN IS A MORE
ADVANCED TRICK.
IT'S A PROGRESSION
FROM SHAKE PAWS AND HIGH FIVE.
IT'S A LITTLE BIT OF A CHALLENGE
BUT IT'S VERY CUTE AND FUN.
HIGH TEN.
WELL NOW WE'VE SEEN AN EXPERT
DEMONSTRATION,
LET'S GO SEE
WHO'S HERE TO TRAIN THEIR DOG.
I AM HERE WITH ADRIAN AND JESSE.
WHAT SORT OF DOG IS JESSE?

Adrian is around 11, with short straight brown hair and wears jeans and a burgundy T-shirt.

Adrian says A POODLE CROSS.

Katrina says AND HOW OLD IS HE?

Adrian says FIVE MONTHS OLD.

Katrina says FIVE MONTHS OLD.
THAT'S WHY HE'S NIPPING
MY FINGERS BECAUSE HE'S YOUNG.
DOES HE CHEW
ON YOUR THINGS AT HOME?

Adrian says YEAH HE DOES.
HE'S VERY PLAYFUL AND JUMPY.

Katrina says WHAT SORT
OF TRAINING DO YOU DO WITH HIM?

Adrian says JUMPING THROUGH HOOPS, JUMPING
ON CHAIRS.
NOT BITING.

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

Adrian says CAN GET EXTRA EXERCISE.
GIVES YOU MORE REASONS TO GO OUT
MORE OFTEN.
IF YOU HAVE SOME PROBLEMS
AT HOME
AND YOU ARE UPSET WITH YOUR
FAMILY JUST GO TO YOUR DOG.

Katrina says THAT'S A GOOD THING ISN'T IT
ABOUT DOGS?

Adrian says YEAH.

Katrina says IT'S UNCONDITIONAL LOVE.
ARE YOU READY TO DO SOME
TRAINING TODAY?

Adrian says YEAH.

Katrina says OKAY LET'S GO.
TODAY WE ARE GOING TO TEACH
JESSE TO GIVE A HIGH TEN.
NOW ADRIAN, THE FIRST STEP
WITH THIS IS TO
GET JESSE TO SIT
AND THEN JUST GET USED TO
OFFERING ONE PAW ONLY.
AND WHEN HE OFFERS UP THAT PAW
THEN HE GETS THE TREAT.
SO THAT'S STEP ONE.
JESSE.

Adrian says SIT.
GOOD BOY.
YOU ARE SUCH A GOOD BOY.
SUCH A GOOD BOY.

Katrina says PAW UP.
OKAY NOW PAW UP.
GOOD PUPPY.
SO THAT'S STEP ONE.

Adrian says YEAH.

Katrina says STEP TWO IS GOING TO BE TO GET
HIM TO HIGH FIVE MY ONE HAND
WHEN I PUT IT UP.
BUT WE'LL COME BACK AND DO THAT.
WE'LL BE BACK SOON.

Alfie says I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE HOW THEY GO
WITH TEACHING HIM
HOW TO HIGH TEN.
WE'LL COME BACK AND CHECK IN
WITH THEM A LITTLE LATER ON
IN THE SHOW.
BUT NOW IT'S TIME
FOR AN ANIMAL FACT.

The announcer says DID YOU KNOW... ..GIBBONS SWING
FROM TREE TO TREE WHICH IS
CALLED BRACHIATING
AND THE WAY THEY DO IT
IS INCREDIBLY FAST AND UNIQUE?
THEY WILL BE ABLE TO MOVE AT
AROUND FIFTY KILOMETRES PER HOUR
THROUGH THE TREES,
WHICH IS AMAZING.
THEY ARE EVEN ABLE TO REACH
BETWEEN GAPS
OF FIFTEEN TO TWENTY METRES
WITH JUST ONE LEAP.
THIS ALLOWS THE GIBBONS TO BE
ABLE TO REACH FRUITS
FROM HIGH BRANCHES.
SO FOR THE GIBBONS,
THERE REALLY ISN'T A LOT
OF COMPETITION WHEN IT COMES TO
FIGHTING FOR THEIR FOOD.
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.

Mudskipper Bob 1 says NAH, NAH, NAH BOB
YOU BAKE THE WORMS
AND THEN ADD THE SAUCE.
GOODNESS IT IS LIKE YOU ARE
AN AMATEUR.

Mudskipper Bob 2 says NO, NO, NO BOB YOU PAN SEAR THEM
AND THEN YOU BRAISE THEM.
THAT'S HOW YOU PREPARE
PRIME CUT WORM.

Mudskipper Bob 1 says WE HAVE NEVER PREPARED PRIME CUT
WORMS LIKE THAT.

Mudskipper Bob 2 says THAT'S HOW I DO IT.

Mudskipper Bob 1 says WELL NO WE DON'T DO IT
LIKE THAT.

Mudskipper Bob 2 says YES WE DO.

Mudskipper Bob 1 says WE DO NOT.
WE DO NOT.
COME ON WE DON'T.

Mudskipper Bob 2 says YES.

Mudskipper Bob 1 says WE DO NOT.

Mudskipper Bob 2 says WHAT ARE YOU?

Mudskipper Bob 1 says LOOK HERE IS ONE I PREPARED
EARLIER.
(VOMIT SOUNDS)

Mudskipper Bob 2 says OH THAT DOES LOOK BAKED TO ME
AND IT LOOKS GOOD.
MAYBE YOU WERE RIGHT BOB.

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.

The announcer says WHICH OF THESE ANIMALS
IS AROUND 10,000 TIMES BETTER
THAN HUMANS AT DETECTING ODOUR?
IS IT A THE GRUMPY ELEPHANT
SEAL?
B THE BOUNCY BEAGLE?

A detection dog sniffs some luggage.

The announcer says GOOD JOB BUDDY.
OR C THE PRICKLY PRAYING MANTIS?
OH WATCH OUT.
THE ANSWER IS B.
THE BEAGLE'S SMELL IS AMAZING.
AT INTERNATIONAL AIRPORTS ALL
OVER THE WORLD
THERE ARE SUPER DOGS LIKE THESE
BEAGLES USING THEIR SUPER SENSE
OF SMELL TO SEARCH
FOR DANGEROUS GOODS.
THE CUSTOMS
AND BORDER PROTECTION BEAGLE
BRIGADE ARE SNIFFING OUT
CONTRABAND FOOD ITEMS BEING
BROUGHT INTO THE COUNTRY BY
OVERSEAS TRAVELLERS.
CERTAIN FRUITS
AND MEATS CAN CARRY PESTS
OR DISEASE
AND IF ALLOWED TO ENTER THE
COUNTRY THEY CAN HAVE
DEVASTATING EFFECTS ON CROPS.
SO IT'S UP TO THE BEAGLES
TO FIND THEM
BEFORE THEY LEAVE THE AIRPORT.
EACH DOG IS TRAINED TO DETECT
THE PROHIBITED FOOD
AND PAW THE BAG
WHEN THEY FIND IT.
THESE GUYS REALLY ARE
SUPER SNIFFERS.

A beagle says WOW.

The announcer says COMPARED TO A DOG,
HUMAN NOSES REALLY ARE PUNY.
DOGS ARE MUCH BETTER AT PICKING
UP ODOURS THAN HUMANS ARE,
BECAUSE WHEN IT COMES TO
SNIFFING,
SIZE REALLY DOES MATTER.
IF HUMANS WANTED TO SMELL THINGS
AS WELL AS A DOG,
THEY'D NEED A MUCH BIGGER NOSE.
A BIG SNOUT HAS MUCH MORE ROOM
FOR THE RECEPTOR CELLS THAT
DETECT ODOURS.
A HUMAN NOSE HAS ABOUT
FORTY MILLION SMELL RECEPTORS
COVERING AN AREA OF ABOUT
TWELVE SQUARE CENTIMETRES.
BUT IF THEY HAD A SNOUT
LIKE A DOG,
THEY'D BE ABLE TO FIT OVER TWO
HUNDRED MILLION RECEPTOR CELLS.
EVEN THE SHAPE OF THE NOSE
ENHANCES THE DOG'S ABILITY
TO SNIFF.
AIR IS DRAWN STRAIGHT INTO
THE NOSTRILS,
BUT EXHALED OUT THE SIDE
OF THE NOSE,
SO IT DOESN'T INTERFERE
WITH THE SCENT TRAIL.

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... ..THE OKAPI MAY LOOK
LIKE A HORSE OR ZEBRA
BUT IT IS ACTUALLY THE ONLY
LIVING RELATIVE OF THE GIRAFFE,

A giraffe says REALLY?

The announcer says ALTHOUGH IT STANDS AT ONLY ONE
THIRD OF THE GIRAFFE'S HEIGHT.
THE OKAPI ALSO HAS A LONG, DARK,
PREHENSILE TONGUE,
JUST LIKE A GIRAFFE'S,
TO HELP IT STRIP THE BUDS
AND YOUNG LEAVES OFF TREES.
THE SHY OKAPI'S HOME IS
IN THE TROPICAL RAIN FOREST
OF CONGO.
AND THAT'S...

Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT.

Alfie says DO YOU KNOW WHAT ISN'T ANYTHING
LIKE A GIRAFFE OR A ZEBRA?
A TINY FLUFFY DOG CALLED JESSE.
HE IS HOWEVER LEARNING TO DO A
COOL NEW TRICK CALLED HIGH TEN
AND IT'S TIME TO SEE
HOW THEY'RE DOING.
IT'S DOG TRICKS.

Katrina says WELCOME BACK.
I AM HERE WITH ADRIAN
AND WE'RE TEACHING JESSE TO DO
THE HIGH TEN.
WE'VE ALREADY TAUGHT JESSE TO
OFFER HIS PAW
AND HE IS DOING THAT
REALLY WELL.
SO NOW WE WANT HIM TO LIFT THE
PAW UP A LITTLE
AND TOUCH MY HAND.
I THINK JESSE IS GOING TO BE
FINE AT THIS.
JESSE.
YOU LOVE YOUR FOOD DON'T YOU?
NOW THE KEY WITH THIS ONE,
ASK HIM TO SIT AGAIN,
OFFERING THAT PAW, GOOD PAW
AND NOW WE'RE GOING TO OFFER IT
A LITTLE HIGHER, ASKING HIM
TO OFFER IT A LITTLE HIGHER.
JESSE.
GOOD DOG.
SIT.
YES.
GOOD PUPPY.

Adrian says WOW.

Katrina says NOW WE DON'T WANT HIM TO LIFT
BOTH FEET OFF THE GROUND YET.
WE JUST WANT TO PRACTICE WITH
JUST THE ONE HAND AND PAW OKAY?
JESSE.
HERE YOU GO.
DO YOU WANT TO HAVE A GO?

Adrian says YEP JESSE.
COME HERE.
SIT.
HIGH FIVE.
GOOD BOY.

Katrina says PERFECT.
THAT'S STEP TWO NAILED.
WE'LL BE BACK SOON WITH STEP
THREE, WHICH IS THE HIGH TEN.

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,
WITH OUR FAVOURITE FUNNY HORSE,
GIVE IT UP FOR THE ONE,
THE ONLY BAD PUN PONY.

(music plays)

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

Bad Pun Pony says WHY ARE TEDDY BEARS NEVER
HUNGRY?
BECAUSE THEY'RE ALWAYS STUFFED.

Ducks chuckle.

Bad Pun Pony says WHY ARE FISH SO SMART?
WELL I GUESS IT'S CAUSE THEY
LIVE IN SCHOOLS.

A bunny chuckles.

Kids say BAD PUN PONY YAY.

Alfie says 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.

The announcer says WHICH OF THESE ANIMALS
MAKES ITS HOME NEAR DANGEROUS
FAST WATER RAPIDS?
IS IT A THE HEAD BANGING
WOODPECKER?
IS IT B THE MASS MIGRATING
WILDEBEEST?
OR IS IT C THE DARE DEVIL
TORRENT DUCK?
IF YOU ANSWERED C THE TORRENT
DUCK YOU ARE CORRECT.
THEY MAKE THEIR HOMES NEAR
DANGEROUS RAPIDS.
IN SOUTH AMERICA WATER POURS OFF
THE ANDES MOUNTAINS
AT TERRIFYING SPEED.
THESE CLASS FIVE RAPIDS
ARE TOO DANGEROUS
FOR MOST HUMAN KAYAKERS.
BUT IT'S HOME SWEET HOME
FOR THE TORRENT DUCK.
MUM AND DAD ARE QUITE AT HOME
IN THESE WATERS.
BUT THEY BUILD THEIR NEST
NINE METRES ABOVE THE RIVER.
THIS KEEPS THEIR EGGS SAFE
FROM FLASH FLOODS,
BUT DOES LEAVE THEIR NEWBORN
CHICKS WITH A PROBLEM.
THE HELPLESS FLUFF BALLS EMERGE
ON TOP OF A CLIFF,
FAR ABOVE THE RAGING WATERS
BELOW.
THE TORRENT DUCKLING HAS TO
TOUGHEN UP QUICK
BECAUSE THERE'S ONLY
ONE WAY DOWN.
IF THE CHICKS SURVIVE THEIR HUGE
LEAP OF FAITH,
THEY'RE STRAIGHT INTO
THEIR NEXT CHALLENGE.
THESE RAPIDS ARE HOME TO AQUATIC
INVERTEBRATES
LIKE STONEFLY NYMPHS.
IF THE CHICKS WANT TO EAT
THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE
TO LEARN HOW TO SWIM.
HOW WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE FORCED
INTO THESE RAPIDS
WHEN YOU WERE ONLY ONE DAY OLD?
THAT'S WHY THEY MUST STAY CLOSE
TO MUM AND COME WHEN SHE CALLS.
THEY LEARN TO RECOGNIZE
THE SOUND
OF THEIR MOTHER'S VOICE EVEN
BEFORE THEY LEAVE THE EGG.
AFTER ALL IT'S IMPORTANT TO
LISTEN TO YOUR PARENTS.

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... ..EARTHWORMS HAVE THE ABILITY
TO RE-GROW LOST SEGMENTS?
NO REALLY THEY CAN.
THIS ABILITY VARIES GREATLY
DEPENDING ON THE SPECIES
OF WORM YOU HAVE, THE AMOUNT
OF DAMAGE TO THE WORM
AND WHERE ON THE WORM
IT IS CUT.
IT MAY BE EASY FOR A WORM
TO REPLACE A LOST TAIL,
BUT COULD BE VERY DIFFICULT
TO REPLACE
A LOST HEAD IF THINGS ARE
NOT QUITE RIGHT.
AND YES,
TO THE NAKED EYE IT CAN BE QUITE
DIFFICULT TO DISTINGUISH BETWEEN
A WORM'S HEAD AND ITS BUTT.
NOW 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.
(CAT SOUNDS AND MUSIC)
((music plays))

A clip shows a kitten chasing a ball of yarn.

A caption reads "It’s Pet and Tell."

Alfie sits with Cara and a black and white dog and says INTRODUCING CARA.
SHE'S BROUGHT IN HER PET DOG
TO TELL US ABOUT IT.
HEY CARA HOW ARE YOU?

Cara is around 10, with long reddish blond hair and wears a denim skirt and a white T-shirt.

Alfie says WHO'S THIS?

Cara says MOLLY.

Alfie says SO WHAT KIND OF DOG IS MOLLY?

Cara says A KING CAVALIER CROSS BEAGLE.

Alfie says OH WOW.
WHAT MADE YOU GET THIS DOG?

Cara says BECAUSE MOLLY IS REALLY GENTLE
AND SHE IS REALLY GOOD WITH
YOUNGER KIDS AND SHE'S REALLY
KIND AND YEAH.

Alfie says IT TICKED ALL THE BOXES.
KIND, GOOD WITH YOUNGER KIDS,
LOVELY, PLAYFUL.
KING CHARLES CAVALIER.
CAVALIERS HAVE DEPENDENT
PERSONALITIES.
THEY LOVE TO BE WITH PEOPLE
AND SHOULD NEVER BE LEFT ALONE
FOR LONG PERIODS OF TIME.
KING CHARLES THE SECOND NEVER
WENT ANYWHERE
WITHOUT AT LEAST TWO
OR THREE SPANIELS BY HIS SIDE.
HE EVEN DECREED THAT THE
SPANIELS SHOULD BE ALLOWED
IN THE HOUSES OF PARLIAMENT.
KING CHARLES CAVALIER.
WHAT IS IT THAT YOU LOVE
ABOUT MOLLY?

Cara says UMM I LOVE THAT SHE'S CUTE
AND SHE LIKES SITTING
ON MY LAP
AND THAT SHE'S PLAYFUL
AND SHE ALWAYS IS THERE TO HELP
YOU IF YOU'RE SAD.

Alfie says HAS MOLLY GOT ANY UNUSUAL, WEIRD
OR FUNNY BEHAVIOURS?

Cara says SHE DUG LOTS OF HOLES
IN THE GARDEN
AND SOMETIMES WE FALL INTO
THE HOLES AND WE'RE LIKE MOLLY.

Alfie says OH THAT MOLLY.

Cara says SHE LIKES RUNNING AWAY A LOT
AND WE HAVE TO GO MOLLY
COME BACK.

Molly jumps off her seat and starts running away.

Alfie says COME HERE.
HEY.
COME HERE.
COME ON.

Cara says SHE LIKES CHASING HER TAIL
AND SOMETIMES SHE CATCHES IT.

Alfie says OH REALLY.
WHAT DOES SHE DO
WHEN SHE CATCHES IT?

Cara says THEN SHE JUST LETS GO OF IT
AND STARTS OVER AGAIN.

Alfie says AND THEN STARTS AGAIN.
WHAT A GREAT CYCLE.
OH MOLLY IS SO CUTE.
AHH LOOK AT HER.
WOULD YOU RECOMMEND OTHER KIDS
GETTING A KING CHARLES CAVALIER
CROSS BEAGLE?

Cara says YES BECAUSE SHE IS GENTLE
AND SHE IS GOOD WITH YOUNG KIDS
AND SHE IS REALLY NICE.
SHE IS KIND.

Alfie says SO THAT'S A DEFINITE YES.

Cara says YES.

They high-five.

Alfie says YEAH. WELL THANK YOU SO MUCH
FOR COMING IN CARA
AND THANK YOU
FOR BRINGING MOLLY.
SHE IS SUPER CUTE.
SPEAKING OF CUTE.
CHECK THIS OUT.

The announcer says OUR NEXT CREATURE LIVES
IN THE AUSTRALIAN BUSH
AND IS OFTEN MISTAKEN
FOR A KANGAROO.
THE ROCK WALLABY,
THESE BIG FUZZY FOOTED,
MARSUPIALS ARE JUST
ADORABLE.
THEY'RE LIKE A KANGAROO
ONLY SMALLER.
THEY HAVE MULTIDIRECTIONAL EARS
AND A POCKET LIKE
POUCH TO HOLD THEIR JOEYS.
THEY LIKE TO LEAP ABOUT
THE PLACE AND REST
IN THE SHADE WHEN HOT.
THE ROCK WALLABY.

Kids say TOO CUTE.

Alfie says NEXT ON THE SHOW
IT'S TIME TO EXPLORE
THE ENORMOUS CREATURE KINGDOM
AND FIND OUT SOME FASCINATING
FACTS IN CREATURE QUIZ.

The announcer says WHICH OF THESE ANIMALS
USES THEIR DISGUISE
TO HUNT PREY?
IS IT A THE SNOW LEOPARD?
B THE BLUE-FOOTED BOOBY?
OR C THE JACKAL?
IF YOU ANSWERED A
THE SNOW LEOPARD,
THEN YOU'VE LEOPARD TO THE RIGHT
CONCLUSION.
THE SNOW LEOPARD USES DISGUISE
TO HUNT FOR PREY.
HIDING HIGH IN THE HIMALAYAS... ..IS THE SNOW LEOPARD.
THE SNOW LEOPARD LOVES
THE HIGH LIFE.
IT CAN BE FOUND AT OVER
5,000 METRES,
MAKING IT THE HIGHEST LIVING CAT
ON EARTH.
BUT THE SNOW LEOPARD COULDN'T
SURVIVE WITHOUT SOME REALLY
CUNNING CAMOUFLAGE.
THAT'S WHY IT SPENDS MOST
OF ITS TIME
POSING AS A BIG FURRY ROCK.
THE FIRST TRICK WITH DISGUISE IS
TO LOOK THE SAME
AS YOUR ENVIRONMENT.
IF YOUR FUR IS EXACTLY THE SAME
COLOUR AS THE PLACE YOU LIVE
YOU BLEND IN PURRRR-FECTLY.
THE SNOW LEOPARD'S MAIN MEAL IS
THE EXTREMELY ATHLETIC MOUNTAIN
SHEEP: THE BHARAL.
LYING AS STILL AS A ROCK,
THE SNOW LEOPARD RELIES
ON ITS EXCELLENT DISGUISE
AND FELINE CUNNING.
ALL IT TAKES IS ONE UNSUSPECTING
BHARAL
TO STEP INTO POUNCING RANGE.
THE SNOW LEOPARD IS THE TOP
PREDATOR
IN THE HIMALAYAN DEATH ZONE.
IT HAS A POWERFUL BUILD,
WHICH ALLOWS IT TO SCALE STEEP
SLOPES WITH EASE.
ITS LONG TAIL PROVIDES BALANCE
AND AGILITY
AND ALSO WRAPS AROUND IT
AS PROTECTION FROM THE COLD.
THE SNOW LEOPARD'S DISGUISE
MEANS THAT WHILE IT'S SELDOM
SEEN IT'S ALWAYS SPOTTED.

A caption reads "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 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 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... ..A SINGLE ADULT OYSTER CAN
FILTER THE EQUIVALENT
OF SIXTY, TWO-LITRE BOTTLES
OF WATER A DAY.

A fish says REALLY?

The announcer says AN OYSTER DRAWS WATER
IN OVER ITS GILLS USING CILIA,
OR TINY HAIRS.
PLANKTON, ALGAE
AND OTHER PARTICLES BECOME
TRAPPED IN THE MUCUS
OF THE GILLS.
SO, BASICALLY THESE OYSTERS
EAT THEIR OWN SNOT BUT,
AT THE SAME TIME,
REMOVE EXCESS SEDIMENT.
THAT KEEPS THE WATER
IN GOOD SHAPE
FOR OTHER MARINE LIFE.

A shark says THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

The announcer says AND THAT'S...

Kids say AN 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, ROLY-POLY,
ADORABLE PONDERING PANDA.

A kid says THE PANDA THAT LIKES TO PONDER.

A panda on its back says DO YOU EVER WONDER ABOUT
BARN OWLS?
LIKE, REALLY WONDER ABOUT
BARN OWLS?
I MEAN, WHERE DID THEY LIVE
BEFORE HUMANS INVENTED BARNS?
AND BEFORE HUMANS
INVENTED BARNS,
WERE BARN OWLS
CALLED BARN OWLS?
OR WERE THEY JUST CALLED OWLS?
OR MAYBE HUMANS CALLED BARNS
BARNS BECAUSE THEY KNEW BARN
OWLS WOULD LIKE LIVING IN THEM.
HMM THAT'S NICE OF THEM.

Alfie says AND THAT, CREATURE FANS,
WAS OUR PONDERING PANDA.
SO STRANGE.
LET'S LEAVE IT AT THAT.
ALRIGHT GUYS IT'S TIME NOW TO
CHECK IN WITH DR. KATRINA
AND SEE HOW ADRIAN AND JESSE
ARE DOING WITH HIGH TEN.
IT'S DOG TRICKS.

Katrina says WELCOME BACK.
WE'RE TEACHING JESSE TO DO
THE HIGH TEN.
SO WE'VE MASTERED HIGH FIVE.
NOW WE NEED HIM TO OFFER BOTH
PAWS TO BOTH OF OUR HANDS OKAY.
IF YOU ARE DOING ANY TRAINING
AT HOME
OR TEACHING YOUR DOG TRICKS
PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE
PARENTAL SUPERVISION,
VERY IMPORTANT RIGHT
FOR YOUR SAFETY AND
FOR YOUR DOG AS WELL.
OKAY JESSE YOU HAVE FINISHED.

Katrina says HE DID IT SEE.
HIGH FIVE TO YOU.

Adrian says GOOD BOY.

Katrina says WELL DONE.

Adrian says YES I LOVED IT.

Katrina says ARE YOU PROUD OF YOUR PUPPY?

Adrian says AHH DEFINITELY.
