(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.
WE'LL BE EXPLORING SOME OF YOUR
FAVOURITE ANIMALS TODAY:

THE SLIMY AND THE SCARY.
COMING UP...

Clips show different types of animals as Alfie says WE GET WILD WITH THE,
OH SO FREAKY AYE AYE,

WITH A PEACOCK,
AND TAKE A CLOSE LOOK
AT THE STARFISH.

PLUS, LOTS, LOTS MORE.
WE'VE GOT A PACKED SHOW
COMING YOUR WAY
BUT FIRST THINGS FIRST LET'S
KICK IT OFF WITH DR KATRINA
AND HER DOG TRAINERS, TO SEE
WHAT WE'RE GOING TO LEARN TODAY,
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 HERE
WITH THE BEAUTIFUL WONDER DOGS.
TODAY WE'RE GOING TO SHOW YOU
HOW TO TEACH YOUR DOG
TO PLAY DEAD 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.

Clips show the dog doing its favourite activities.

Katrina says HE'S DEFINITELY THE FUN LOVING
CRAZY ONE WHO RARELY SITS STILL.
HIS PET HATES:
NOT BEING ALLOWED TO RUN.
NAUGHTIEST DEED: HE'S ALWAYS
STIRRING UP THE OTHERS.
FAVOURITE TREAT IS SAUSAGE.
THREE WORDS TO DESCRIBE TRICK:
NAUGHTY, ACTIVE AND PLAYFUL.
OKAY LET'S SEE TRICK
DEMONSTRATE.

A caption reads "Play dead."

Katrina says PLAY DEAD IS A REALLY FUNNY
PARTY TRICK
THAT EVERYBODY LOVES.
BANG.
TO START TEACHING THIS TRICK,
YOUR DOG NEEDS TO BE COMFORTABLE
TO LAY DOWN WHEN YOU ASK.

Trick plays dead and Katrina says BANG.
WELL NOW WE'VE SEEN
AN EXPERT DEMONSTRATION,
LET'S GO SEE WHO'S HERE
TO TRAIN THEIR DOG.

Katrina sits on a bench with a girl and a big dog with curly cream hair.

Katrina says I AM HERE TODAY
WITH AVA AND ARCHIE.

Ava is around 8, with long blond hair in a ponytail and wears jeans and a blue T-shirt.

Katrina says AVA HOW OLD IS ARCHIE?

Ava says THREE YEARS OLD.

Katrina says AND HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE
HIS PERSONALITY?

Ava says AHH, HE IS CALM.

Katrina says YEP.
WHAT SORT OF THINGS
DO YOU LIKE DOING WITH HIM?

Ava says UMM GO ON BUSH WALKS WITH HIM
AND SOMETIMES WE GO
TO THE DOG BEACH
AND HE LIKES PLAYING
IN THE WATER.

Katrina says YEP AND DO YOU THINK
IT'S IMPORTANT TO TRAIN DOGS?

Ava says YES.

Katrina says WHY DO YOU THINK IT'S IMPORTANT?

Ava says THEN THEY JUST GO CRAZY.

Katrina says IF YOU DON'T TRAIN THEM.

Ava says YEAH.

Katrina says WHAT KIND OF THINGS
DO YOU TRAIN HIM TO DO?

Ava says SIT.

Katrina says YEP.

Ava says DROP.
AHH, STAY.

Katrina says WELL THAT'S GOOD MANNERS,
THAT'S A REALLY GOOD START.

Ava says YEAH.

Katrina says ARE YOU KEEN TO DO
SOME TRICK TRAINING TODAY?
OKAY, LET'S GO.
WHAT DO YOU THINK ARCHIE?
TODAY AVA AND I
ARE GOING TO TEACH ARCHIE
HOW TO PLAY DEAD.
NOW THE FIRST STEP TO THIS TRICK
IS TO GET YOUR DOG
TO BE COMFORTABLE TO LIE DOWN
OR DROP FROM A SIT POSITION.
SO WE JUST ASK HIM TO LIE DOWN.
AND ONCE HE IS COMFORTABLY DOWN
WITH ALL FOUR LEGS
THAT'S WHEN HE GETS THE TREAT.
YOU OKAY TO GIVE HIM A GO?

Ava says YEAH.

Katrina says OKAY ARCHIE UP.
COME ON.

Ava says SIT.

Katrina says AND THEN ASK HIM TO LIE DOWN.

Ava says DROP.

Katrina says AND GIVE HIM THE TREAT.
THAT IS PERFECT.
SO THAT IS STEP ONE.
STEP TWO WILL BE TO TEACH HIM
TO LIE ON HIS SIDE.
WELL WE ARE GOING TO GO BACK
TO THE STUDIO.
WE'LL COME BACK
WITH STEP TWO SOON.

Alfie says AHH, WHAT A LOVELY LOOKING DOG.
I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING
AVA TEACH ARCHIE
HOW TO PLAY DEAD.
THIS SHOULD BE FUN.
WE WILL CHECK IN AND SEE
HOW THEY'RE DOING
WITH DR KATRINA A LITTLE BIT
LATER IN THE SHOW,
BUT NOW IT'S TIME
FOR AN ANIMAL FACT.

A caption reads "Did you know?"

A clip shows a primate climbing up trees.

The announcer says THAT THE AYE AYE
FROM MADAGASCAR
HAS AN EXTREMELY LONG
MIDDLE FINGER
THAT CAN BE THREE TIMES LONGER
THAN THE OTHER DIGITS
AND IT'S USED TO DRUM UP
FINGER FOOD?
IT FINDS FOOD SIMPLY
BY TAPPING ITS FINGER.
THOSE BIG FLOPPY EARS
ARE LISTENING FOR JUICY GRUBS
LIVING IN THE TREE BARK.
WHEN IT HEARS ONE IT RIPS APART
THE WOOD AND INSERTS
ITS LONG FINGER TO PULL OUT
ITS YUMMY MEAL.
THE AYE AYE'S EXTREMELY
LONG FINGER MEANS
LUNCH IS NEVER FAR AWAY.
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 LOUD MOUTHED,
THEY'RE CHATTY,
THEY'RE LOOSE-LIPPED
AND THEY'RE NOISY.
WHO ELSE COULD I BE
TALKING ABOUT?
YES, IT'S TIME FOR TWO BOBS.

Dunf Beetle Bob rolls dung down some leaves and says HEY, BOB.
LOOK WHAT I FOUND.

Orangutan Bob says OH, GOOD ONE, BOB.
THAT'S A BIGUN.

Dung Beetle Bob says SURE IS BOB.
FOUND IT NEAR THE BUSH
OVER THERE.

Orangutan Bob says PRETTY SMOOTH LOOKING TOO.

Dung Beetle Bob says IT'S REAL EASY TO ROLL AS WELL.

Orangutan Bob says HEY I WONDER WHAT KIND OF
ANIMAL IT CAME FROM.

Dung Beetle Bob says WHAT DO YOU MEAN, BOB?

Orangutan Bob says WELL YOU KNOW,
WHAT KIND OF POO IS IT?

Dung Beetle Bob says WHAT DO YOU MEAN POO?
WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?

Orangutan Bob says WELL POO, YEAH.
YOU KNOW ALL THAT BROWN STUFF
YOU COLLECT IS POO.
YOU'RE A DUNG BEETLE BOB.

Dung Beetle Bob says WHEN YOU SAY POO...

Orangutan Bob says I MEAN POO YEAH BOB.
YOU EAT POO.
P DOUBLE O.
POOPEDIE DOOPEDIE DO.

Dung Beetle Bob says OH COULD YOU STOP TALKING..

Orangutan Bob says YOU ALL RIGHT BOB?

Dung Beetle Bob says JUST GIVE ME A MINUTE HERE.

Alfie says AND THAT MY CREATURE FRIENDS
WAS THE TWO BOBS.
WE'LL HEAR A BIT MORE FROM THEM
LATER ON.
NEXT ON THE SHOW, IT'S TIME
FOR SOME ANIMAL ENLIGHTENMENT,
FOR A LITTLE BIT
OF BRAIN TRAINING.
THROW ON YOUR THINKING CAP.
IT'S TIME FOR CREATURE QUIZ.

The announcer says WHICH OF THESE
ANIMALS CAN BUILD HUGE TOWERS
MADE FROM DUNG AND SPIT?
IS IT A THE TIRELESS TERMITES?
B THE DILIGENT DUNG BEETLE?
PEW.
YOU CAN SMELL IT.
OR C THE STINKY SLINKY
MILLIPEDE?
THE ANSWER IS A.
THE TERMITES BUILD TOWERS
FROM DUNG AND SPIT.
HUMANS LIKE TO BUILD
SKYSCRAPERS,
ENORMOUS MONUMENTS TO POWER
AND WEALTH.
BUT THERE IS ONE CREATURE
THAT BUILDS ON
AN EVEN BIGGER SCALE.
THIS MIGHTY TOWER IS HOME
TO THE INDUSTRIOUS TERMITES.
IT'S JUST THAT THEY'RE ALL BUSY
DOWN IN THE BASEMENT.
THERE'S NO SHORTAGE
OF TERMITE WORKERS
TO HELP BUILD
THEIR MASSIVE HOME,
BECAUSE THEIR QUEEN
CAN GIVE BIRTH EVERY 15 SECONDS.
THEY NEED ALL THE HELP
THEY CAN GET,
BECAUSE DIGGING
IS A VERY MESSY BUSINESS.
ONCE THEY'VE EXCAVATED SOIL,
THEY TURN IT INTO
A BUILDING MATERIAL
BY CHEWING IT UP WITH A MIXTURE
OF SALIVA AND DUNG.
IT MAY NOT BE PRETTY,
BUT THIS PLASTER
SETS LIKE CONCRETE
AND CAN BE MOULDED
INTO VARIOUS FEATURES.
IT'S AN EXTRAORDINARILY
COMPLICATED
SUBTERRANEAN METROPOLIS.
EACH YEAR, A SINGLE COLONY
CAN DIG UP TO
1,800 KILOGRAMS OF SOIL
AND MOULD IT INTO A TOWER
THAT CAN STAND TALLER
THAN A GIRAFFE.
IF THE TERMITES WERE SCALED UP
TO HUMAN SIZE
THEY'D MAKE A SKYSCRAPER
TO RIVAL ANYTHING
ON PLANET EARTH.
AND JUST LIKE
A HUMAN CONSTRUCTION,
THE TERMITE MOUND COMES COMPLETE
WITH ITS OWN VENTILATION SYSTEM.

Alfie says ALRIGHT GUYS,
STILL TO COME ON TODAY'S SHOW.
WE HAVE MORE CANINE CRAZINESS
IN DOG TRICKS,
LOADS OF LAUGHS
WITH BAD PUN PONY,
A TRUCK LOAD
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 PEACOCKS ARE ACTUALLY OFTEN
MISNAMED?
THE TERM PEACOCK SHOULD
TECHNICALLY ONLY BE USED
TO LABEL THE MALE
OF THE SPECIES.
THE FEMALE IS NAMED THE PEAHEN.
HA HA PEAHEN.
AND THE COLLECTIVE NAME
FOR THE SPECIES IS PEAFOWL.
THE PEACOCK AND PEAHEN ARE ALSO
QUITE DIFFERENT IN APPEARANCE,
WITH THE PEACOCKS BEING THE ONES
WITH THE BEAUTIFUL ARRANGEMENT
OF TAIL FEATHERS,
WHICH ACTUALLY MAKES UP
60 percent OF THE PEACOCK'S
TOTAL LENGTH
WHICH THEY USE
TO TRY AND ATTRACT A PEAHEN.
AND THAT'S...

Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT.

Alfie says PEACOCKS ARE PRETTY SPECTACULAR.
THEY LOVE TO SHOW OFF TOO.
BUT I WONDER IF THEY'D BE ABLE
TO PLAY DEAD.
I DOUBT IT.
BUT I DO KNOW AN ANIMAL
WHO HOPEFULLY WILL BE LEARNING
TO PLAY DEAD TODAY.
ARCHIE THE DOG.
LET'S FIND OUT HOW THEY'RE DOING
WITH TRAINING.
IT'S TIME TO HEAD OVER
TO DR KATRINA
FOR STEP TWO OF DOG TRICKS.

Katrina says WELCOME BACK.
AVA AND I ARE TEACHING ARCHIE
TO PLAY DEAD.
THE FIRST STEP
WAS GETTING HIM COMFORTABLE
TO GO INTO THE DROP POSITION
OR LIE DOWN
AND HE IS GREAT AT THAT,
ISN'T HE?
YEP, NO JUMPING THOUGH.
THE SECOND STEP IS TO ASK HIM
TO LIE ON HIS SIDE.
SO WE'RE GOING TO REWARD HIM
FOR LYING ON HIS SIDE.
SO WE WILL DO IT IN TWO STEPS
SO HE WILL GET A TREAT
FOR LYING DOWN,
JUST LIKE WE DID BEFORE.
DOWN.
GOOD BOY.
GIVING HIM LOTS OF PRAISE AS
WELL AND I JUST GET THE TREAT,
ACROSS HIS NOSE THERE
AND I AM JUST ENCOURAGING HIM.
OH GOOD BOY.
OKAY ASK HIM TO LAY DOWN.

Ava says DROP.

Katrina says GOOD BOY.
GIVE HIM THE TREAT.
THAT'S OKAY, IT DOESN'T MATTER
WHICH WAY HE LIES.
THAT'S PERFECT.
GOOD BOY.
OKAY STEP THREE WILL BE
TO ASK ARCHIE
TO DO THIS ALL IN ONE STEP.
SO IT WILL BE FROM THE SIT
TO THE DROP
TO THE LIE ON HIS SIDE
AND THAT WILL BE PRETTY MUCH
PLAY DEAD.
YOU GOING TO SIT DOWN FOR US?
GOOD BOY.
HE IS A GOOD MAN ISN'T HE?

Alfie says WE'LL CATCH UP WITH THEM
A BIT LATER ON.
AND NOW TIME FOR SOME CHUCKLES
AND SOME GIGGLES
AND MAYBE A BIT OF
SNIGGERING TOO.
WITH OUR FAVOURITE FUNNY HORSE.
YES GIVE IT UP FOR THE ONE,
THE ONLY BAD PUN PONY.

Kids say YAY!

((music plays))

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

Bad Pun Pony says OKAY WHAT DO YOU CALL
A DOG MAGICIAN?
A LABRA-KADABRA.
(LAUGHTER)

Bad Pun Pony says WHAT DO YOU CALL ALPACAS
TAKING OVER THE WORLD?
THE ALPACA-LYPSE.
GET IT?
ALPACA-LYPSE.
(LAUGHTER)

Kids say BAD PUN PONY.
YAY!

Alfie says THAT PONY IS PRICELESS.
WE'LL HAVE MORE INCREDIBLE JOKES
FROM PONY NEXT TIME.
BUT NOW IT'S TIME FOR SOMETHING
A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT.
LET'S HAVE A BIT OF
A BRAIN TRAIN
AND TEST OUR ANIMAL KNOWLEDGE.
YES, IT'S TIME
FOR CREATURE QUIZ.

The announcer says WHICH OF THESE
ANIMALS
PROVIDE THE MOST
LUXURIOUS WOOL?
IS IT A THE ADORABLE ALPACA
WHO WAS CREATED FROM A CROSS
BETWEEN A GUANACO AND A VICUÑA
6,000 YEARS AGO?
B THE SHEEP WHO WERE CONSIDERED
A SACRED ANIMAL
BY THE ANCIENT EGYPTIANS?
OR C THE LLAMA
ONE OF THE WORLD'S OLDEST
DOMESTICATED ANIMALS?
IF YOU ANSWERED A
YOU ARE CORRECT.
THE ALPACA PROVIDES
THE MOST LUXURIOUS WOOL.
ALPACAS ARE THE DARLINGS
OF THE CAMELID FAMILY.
WHICH ALSO INCLUDES LLAMAS,
VICUÑA,
GUANACOS AND SOME CAMELS.
THESE ALPACAS ARE MORE COMMON
HUACAYAS BREED.
IT IS SAID THAT ALPACA WOOL
IS AS SOFT AS CASHMERE,
WARMER THAT SHEEP'S WOOL,
HYPOALLERGENIC
AND ALMOST COMPLETELY
WATER PROOF.

An alpaca says SUPER GENIUS.

The announcer says ALPACAS WERE DOMESTICATED
BY THE SOUTH AMERICAN INCAS
MORE THAN 6,000 YEARS AGO
AND WERE RAISED
FOR THEIR EXQUISITE FLEECE.
DUE TO ITS SUPERIOR QUALITIES
ALPACA FIBRE
WAS RESERVED EXCLUSIVELY
FOR THE ELITE AND NOBILITY.

Another alpaca says HELLO.

The announcer says THE ALPACA IS MOST CLOSELY
RELATED TO THE VICUÑA.
UNLIKE THE ALPACA, THE VICUÑA
HAS NEVER BEEN DOMESTICATED.

A vicuña says THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

The announcer says LIKE THEIR COUSINS THE ALPACAS
WILL SOMETIMES SPIT
IF THEY BECOME ANNOYED.

An alpaca says COULD YOU PLEASE...

The announcer says WHEN THEY ARE EXTREMELY ANNOYED
THEY WILL SPIT FOOD AT YOU
FROM THEIR STOMACH.
THEIR SPIT IS ALSO
A CHEMICAL WEAPON.
WHEN AN ALPACA PERCEIVES DANGER,
IT ISSUES A DISTINCTIVE CALL
TO ALERT THE REST OF THE HERD.
THE ALARM CALL IS A LOUD,
UNDULATING SQUAWK,
WHICH THE ALPACA HOPES,
WILL SEND THE INTRUDER
ALPACKING.

An alpaca says TAKE A HIKE.

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'S AN ADORABLE ANIMAL
IN TOO CUTE.
PLUS SOME MUSING 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 THAT ALTHOUGH
THEY ARE NAMED STARFISH,
THEY ARE NOT RELATED TO FISH
AT ALL?
WHICH IS WHY MARINE SCIENTISTS
HAVE STARTED TO OFFICIALLY
CHANGE THEIR NAME TO SEA STAR.
AND UNLIKE MOST OTHER ANIMALS...

(DRUM ROLL)

The announcer says THEY DO NOT HAVE BLOOD.
INSTEAD OF BLOOD,
FILTERED SEAWATER
CIRCULATES THROUGH THEIR BODY
WITH THE HELP OF A SIEVE PLATE,
WHICH IS THE POINT
ON THE STARFISH'S BODY
WHERE THE WATER ENTERS.
AND THAT'S...

Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT.

Alfie says AND NOW MY CREATURE MANIACS
IT'S TIME FOR THE BEST BIT
OF THE SHOW.
WE MEET A SPECIAL GUEST
AND THEIR PET
RIGHT HERE IN THE HOUSE.
BUT FIRST THERE'S THIS.

A dolphin jumps and twirls and says YEE HOO.
I'M FLYING.
I'M FLYING.
WOO HOO.
BELLY FLOP.

A caption reads "It’s Pet and tell."

Alfie sits with a boy and his black cat.

Alfie says INTRODUCING JAMES.
HE HAS BROUGHT IN HIS PET CAT
TO TELL US MORE ABOUT IT.
HOWDY JAMES,
HOW ARE YOU?

James is around 10, with short brown hair and wears black shorts and a blue T-shirt.

James says I AM DOING GOOD.

Alfie says WELCOME TO THE SHOW.

James says THANK YOU.

Alfie says WHO'S THIS?

James says IT'S MY CAT EMERALD.

Alfie says EMERALD.
AND WHAT KIND OF A CAT
IS EMERALD?

James says SHE'S A BLACK CAT.

Alfie says YEAH.
OH SHE'S SO BEAUTIFUL.
SHE HAS GOT SUCH
A NICE BLACK COAT.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU HAD
EMERALD FOR?

James says WELL ALMOST THREE YEARS.

Alfie says WOW THREE YEARS.
YOU HAVE KIND OF GROWN UP
WITH EMERALD.

James says YEAH.

Alfie says DO YOU CALL EMERALD
ONE OF YOUR BEST FRIENDS?

James says WELL SHE IS A GOOD CAT.

Alfie says YEAH.
DOMESTICATED LONGHAIRED CAT.
THE DOMESTIC LONGHAIRED CAT
CAN LIVE BETWEEN 12 TO 18 YEARS.
THEY ARE PLAYFUL, DOCILE,
FRIENDLY AND LOVING.
THEY ARE VERY SIMILAR
TO THE DOMESTIC SHORT HAIR
BUT WITH FANCIER, LONGER FUR.
THE LONG FUR GENE
IS ACTUALLY RECESSIVE
SO ONLY ABOUT 1 IN EVERY 10 CATS
WILL GET LONG HAIR.
THEY MAKE VERY GOOD COMPANION
PETS.
THEY ARE VERY GOOD AT HUNTING.
DOMESTIC LONGHAIRED CAT.
SO HAS EMERALD GOT
ANY CHEEKY BEHAVIOURS?

James says WELL, SHE HAS.
SHE HAS POOPED AND PEED
ON MY MUM'S BED.

Alfie says NO.

James says YES.

Alfie says TELL ME ABOUT THAT.

James says SHE JUST,
SHE WAS JUST FREAKING OUT.

Alfie says I WOULD TOO IF THERE WAS PEE
AND POO ON MY BED.

James says AND THE NEXT DAY SHE PEED
RIGHT INSIDE MY SHOE.

Alfie says OH.
YUCK.
DID YOU PUT YOUR SHOE ON
AFTERWARDS?

James says AHH NO.

Alfie says YOU HAVE TO CLEAN IT FIRST?

James says YEAH.

Alfie says SO WHAT DO YOU DO
TO LOOK AFTER EMERALD?

James says WE GIVE HER CAT FOOD, WET FOOD
AND SOMETIMES LIKE SOMETHING
LIKE AHH TURKEY FOOD
LIKE TURKEY.
HUMAN FOOD SOMETIMES
LIKE TURKEY.

Alfie says DOES EMERALD HAVE
ANY OTHER NAUGHTY BEHAVIOURS?

James says YES SHE CHASES DOGS.

Alfie says SHE IS A DOG CHASER?

James says YES.

Alfie says REALLY?
BUT WHAT ABOUT WITH OTHER CATS?
DOES SHE HAVE ANY OTHER
CAT FRIENDS?

James says YES BALTHAZAR.

Alfie says WHO'S BALTHAZAR?

James says WELL HE IS A CAT WHO UMM USED
TO COME TO MY HOUSE.

Alfie says SO IS THAT LIKE, ARE THEY KIND
OF LIKE BOYFRIEND
AND GIRLFRIEND?

James says SORT OF.

Alfie says SO JAMES WHAT'S YOUR FAVOURITE
THING ABOUT EMERALD?

James says WELL HOW PLAYFUL SHE IS
AND HER GOOD ATTITUDE.

Alfie says YEAH.
WELL THANK YOU SO MUCH
FOR COMING ON TODAY JAMES.

James says THANKS, ALFIE.

Alfie says AND THANK YOU FOR INTRODUCING US
TO EMERALD.

James says YOU'RE WELCOME.

Alfie says SHE IS A SERIOUSLY CUTE CAT.
SPEAKING OF CUTE CHECK THIS OUT.

The announcer says THE WORLD IS FULL
OF SCARY CREATURES:
LIONS,
TIGERS,
SHARKS,
AND CROCODILES.
YIKES.
BUT THEY DON'T START OUT SCARY.
WHEN CROCODILES ARE BORN
THEY'RE ADORABLE.
WITH THEIR TEENY TINY TEETH
AND HAPPY SNAPPY FACES.
THEY LOOK LIKE
MINIATURISED DINOSAURS.
SURE THEY GROW UP TO BE FIERCE
BUT AS BABIES THEY'RE JUST...

Kids say TOO CUTE.

Alfie says AND THAT CREATURE FANS
WAS TOO CUTE.
I LOVE THAT PART OF THE SHOW.
RIGHT, TIME FOR SOMETHING
A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT.
LET'S PUT YOUR ANIMAL
UNDERSTANDING TO THE TEST
AND NOURISH THAT BRAIN OF YOURS
IN ANOTHER CREATURE QUIZ.

The announcer says WHICH OF THESE
ANIMALS LAYS THE LARGEST EGG?
IS IT A THE FLYING COMPOST BIN?
ALSO KNOWN AS THE VULTURE?
B THE SNIFFLING LITTLE ODDBALL
KIWI?
OR IS IT C THE SURPRISINGLY
ADORABLE ALLIGATOR?
IF YOU ANSWERED B
YOU'D BE CORRECT.
SOMEHOW THE FEMALE KIWI
HAS TO SQUEEZE OUT
THIS ENORMOUS EGG AND IF IT
LOOKS PAINFULLY IMPOSSIBLE
IT'S BECAUSE THE FEMALE KIWI
IS THE SIZE OF A DOMESTIC HEN,
BUT ITS EGG IS TEN TIMES BIGGER.
AND SINCE THE FEMALE
IS COMPLETELY EXHAUSTED,
IT'S UP TO DAD TO INCUBATE
THE EGG.
AND HE DOES IT ALL BY HIMSELF
BECAUSE MUM IS OFF
FOR A WELL-EARNED REST.
KEEPING THE EGG WARM IS ALMOST
AS MUCH HARD WORK AS LAYING IT.
MOST BIRDS LAY LOTS
OF SMALL EGGS
THAT PRODUCE CHICKS
THAT ARE HELPLESS FOR WEEKS
AFTER HATCHING.
BUT THE KIWI IS ABLE
TO LOOK AFTER ITSELF
IN ONLY A COUPLE OF DAYS.
(CHIRPING)
THE PARENT'S LONG STRUGGLE
WITH THE EGG MEANS
THEY DON'T HAVE TO SPEND
ANY TIME LOOKING AFTER
AN UNRULY TEENAGER.

The chick says SEE YA LATER MUM,
I'M OUTTA HERE.

A caption reads "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,
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.
COME ON, WE DON'T.
WE DO NOT.

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.

Mudskipper Bob 1 burps.

Mudskipper Bob 2 says OH THAT DOES LOOK BAKED TO ME
AND IT LOOKS GOOD.
MAYBE YOU WERE RIGHT 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 THREE IN DOG TRICKS.
SO, ALL THAT STILL TO COME
RIGHT HERE ON
CREATURE MANIA.

A caption reads "Did you know?"

The announcer says ZEBRAS ARE VERY CLOSELY
RELATED
TO HORSES AND DONKEYS?
THESE AFRICAN BEAUTIES
EAT MOSTLY GRASS
AND WILL TRAVEL UP TO
2,900 KILOMETRES
IN SEARCH OF FOOD.

A creature says MUNCHING MUNCHKINS.

The announcer says WHEN ZEBRAS STAND TOGETHER,
IT'S HARDER FOR PREDATORS
TO DETERMINE HOW MANY ZEBRAS
ARE IN THE GROUP,
THEY ALSO BUNCH TOGETHER
TO CONFUSE COLOUR-BLIND
PREDATORS,
SUCH AS LIONS, WHO MISTAKE
THEIR PATTERN AS GRASS.
AND THAT'S...

Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT.

Alfie says WHAT A GREAT FACT, RIGHT?
OKAY, CREATURE FANS TIME
TO GET A BIT PHILOSOPHICAL.
IT'S TIME
FOR A BIT OF REFLECTION,
FOR A BIT OF CONTEMPLATION
AND RUMINATION
WITH OUR FAVOURITE
BLACK AND WHITE, ROLLIE POLY,
BAMBOO EATING, PONDERING PANDA.

Kids say THE PANDA THAT LIKES TO PONDER.

A panda on its back says EVER WONDER WHY YOU HAVE
A RUNNING NOSE AND SMELLY FEET?
IT SHOULD BE THE OTHER
WAY ROUND.
YOU SHOULD HAVE RUNNING FEET
AND A SMELLY NOSE.
SPEAKING OF NOSES
WHY CAN I SEE MY NOSE
WHEN I CLOSE MY ONE EYE
BUT IT DISAPPEARS
WHEN I OPEN BOTH?
HA, TRY IT.
IT'S SO WEIRD.
IT'S LIKE HAVING A MYSTERIOUS
MAGICAL DISAPPEARING NOSE
AND NO ONE KNOWS WHY.
WEIRD.

Alfie says AND THAT CREATURE FRIENDS
WAS PONDERING PANDA.
A LITTLE BIT ODD.
NOW SOMETHING
COMPLETELY DIFFERENT.
IT'S TIME FOR US TO CHECK OUT
STEP THREE
OF TODAY'S DOG TRICK.
WILL AVA MANAGE TO GET ARCHIE
TO PLAY DEAD?
LET'S FIND OUT.
IT'S DOG TRICKS.

Katrina says WELCOME BACK.
AVA AND I HAVE BEEN TEACHING
ARCHIE TO PLAY DEAD.
SO WE'VE DONE
THE FIRST TWO STEPS,
WHICH IS GETTING HIM COMFORTABLE
TO LIE DOWN
AND THEN LIE ON HIS SIDE.
NOW WE WANT HIM TO DO THAT
ALL IN ONE
SO IT WILL MAKE IT SMOOTH
AND THEN INTRODUCE THE TERM
PLAY DEAD
AS HE LIES ON HIS SIDE.
OKAY, ARCHIE.
TREAT AGAIN.
SO WE WON'T GIVE HIM THE TREAT
WHEN HE FIRST LIES DOWN.
HE JUST GETS IT WHEN HE ROLLS
OVER ONTO HIS SIDE.
OKAY, SO DOWN.
GOOD BOY.
THAT WAY.
AND RIGHT OVER.
GOOD BOY.
GOOD BOY.
AND THEN WHAT WE'LL DO
FROM THERE IS YOU JUST BUILD UP
THE AMOUNT OF TIME YOU ASK HIM
TO STAY IN THAT POSITION
AND THEN YOU HAVE GOT
YOUR PLAYING DEAD DOG.
WELL HE'S BEEN A FANTASTIC DOG
TO WORK WITH AND SO HAVE YOU.
YOU HAVE BEEN AN AMAZING
TRAINER.
I HOPE YOU'VE ENJOYED
TODAY'S DOG TRICK.
WE'LL BE BACK NEXT TIME
WITH MORE.

Alfie says AHH, GREAT WORK AVA AND ARCHIE.
THANKS, DR KATRINA.
WHAT A GREAT TRICK.
I THINK IF THEY KEEP PRACTICING
AVA WILL BE ABLE TO SHOW
ALL HER FRIENDS THAT TRICK
IN NO TIME.
WELL THAT'S ALL WE HAVE TIME
FOR TODAY CREATURE FANS.
I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE SHOW.
I KNOW I DID.
HOW COOL ARE THOSE BUSY
LITTLE TERMITES
AND WHAT ABOUT THE HILARIOUSLY
KOOKY ALPACAS?
REMEMBER ANIMALS ARE AWESOME
AND PETS ARE PALS.
FOR MORE CRAZY ANIMALS
AND FRIENDLY PETS,
JOIN ME, ALFIE, NEXT TIME
HERE ON
CREATURE MANIA.
