(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.
TODAY'S SHOW IS FULL
OF AMAZING ANIMALS, PLENTY
OF PETS AND DYNAMIC DOG TRICKS.
COMING UP.

Clips show different types of animals as Alfie says WE CHECK OUT OUR BUZZY BUDDIES
THE BEE,
GET SNAPPY WITH A CROCODILE
AND SORT THE QUILLS
FROM THE BILLS ON AN ECHIDNA.
WE HAVE A LAUGH WITH PANDA
AND PONY AND MET SIENNA
AND HER SOMETIMES NAUGHTY GOLDEN
RETRIEVER IN PET AND TELL.
PLUS, LOTS, LOTS MORE.
THERE IS SO MUCH FUN TO COME
I CAN HARDLY WAIT.
BUT FIRST LET'S HEAD OVER
TO SEE DR. KATRINA
AND FIND OUT WHAT DOG TRICK
WE'RE GOING TO LEARN TODAY
AND WHAT LUCKY YOUNG TRAINER
SHE HAS JOINING HER.
THIS IS 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 THESE ARE THE INCREDIBLY
TALENTED WONDER DOGS.
TODAY WE'RE GOING TO SHOW YOU
HOW TO TEACH YOUR DOG TO DANCE
AND DART IS GOING TO DEMONSTRATE
IT FOR US
BUT LET'S LEARN A LITTLE BIT
ABOUT HER FIRST.
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.

Clips show the dog doing its favourite activities.

Katrina says FAVOURITE HOBBIES: AGILITY
AND SWIMMING.
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 dance."

Katrina makes Dart dance and says YES.
GOOD GIRL.
THE DANCE IS A VERY CUTE
AND ENTERTAINING TRICK.
GOOD DANCING.
BUT IT DOES REQUIRE YOUR DOG
TO HAVE GOOD BALANCE
AND IT TAKES SOME SKILL.
IT'S NOT A TRICK TO TEACH YOUNG
PUPPIES OR LARGER BREEDS.
GOOD GIRL.
YEAH.
WELL NOW WE'VE SEEN AN EXPERT
DEMONSTRATION,
LET'S GO SEE WHO'S HERE TO TRAIN
THEIR DOG.

Katrina sits with a boy and his curly ginger haired dog.

Katrina says I AM HERE TODAY WITH ETHAN
AND HIS GORGEOUS DOG OBI.
TELL ME A BIT ABOUT OBI.

Ethan is around 9, with short brown hair and wears blue shorts and a burgundy T-shirt.

Ethan says OBI IS TEN MONTHS OLD.

Katrina says YEP AND HAVE YOU HAD HIM
SINCE A PUPPY?

Ethan says WE HAD HIM SINCE HE WAS
TWO MONTHS OLD.

Katrina says HAVE YOU DONE ANY TRAINING
WITH HIM?

Ethan says HE KNOWS SIT, LIE DOWN,
ROLL OVER AND HIGH FIVE.

Katrina says WHAT DO YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT
HAVING A DOG?

Ethan says THEY GIVE YOU LOTS OF COMPANY.
YOU CAN PLAY GAMES.

Katrina says HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE OBI'S
PERSONALITY?

Ethan says EXCITABLE.
HE IS HAPPY, CONFIDENT.
HE'S EASY GOING
AND HE'S VERY LAZY.

Katrina says OH YOU ARE LAZY.
HE IS PRETTY CHILLED FOR AN
EIGHT-MONTH-OLD PUPPY ISN'T HE?
DO YOU WANT TO LEARN SOME TRICKS
WITH OBI?

Ethan says YES.

Katrina says OKAY OBI LET'S GET TO IT.
TODAY ETHAN AND I ARE GOING TO
TEACH OBI TO DANCE.
NOW IT'S A VERY CUTE TRICK.
ARE YOU FEELING CONFIDENT?

Ethan says YES.

Katrina says I THINK HE CAN DO IT TOO.
THE FIRST STEP IS TO JUST GET
OBI COMFORTABLE
WITH REACHING UP HIS HEAD
AND NECK.
OBI, OBI.
OVER HIS NOSE.
PERFECT.
WE'LL KEEP WORKING ON STEP ONE
AND BE BACK SOON WITH STEP TWO,
WHICH IS ASKING OBI TO LIFT HIS
FRONT FEET OFF THE GROUND.

Back in the bamboo house, ALfie says I WONDER HOW ETHAN WILL GO
TEACHING OBI TO DANCE
AND JUST WHAT KIND
OF DANCING EXACTLY?
TAP, CHA CHA, THE TANGO?
WE'LL FIND OUT A BIT LATER ON
BUT NOW IT'S TIME
FOR AN ANIMAL FACT.

The announcer says DID YOU KNOW... ..THAT BEES ARE MYSTERIOUSLY
DISAPPEARING?
THAT'S RIGHT OUR BUSY BUZZY
POLLINATING BUDDIES THAT
POLLINATE OUR FLOWERS AND PLANTS
AND MAKE ALL THAT LOVELY HONEY
ARE HAVING HUGE POPULATION
DECLINES.
THAT COULD BE A PROBLEM.
THAT'S WHY GOVERNMENTS
AND FARMING HAVE STARTED
A SPECIAL PROGRAM WITH NEW HIVES
TO HELP INCREASE THEIR NUMBERS
AND HELP THEM GET BACK TO DOING
WHAT THEY DO BEST
AND IT APPEARS TO BE WORKING.
AND THAT'S GREAT BECAUSE WHO
KNOWS WHERE WE WOULD BEE
WITHOUT 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 NEED NO INTRODUCTION.
THEY'RE OBSTREPEROUS,
THEY'RE CLAMOROUS,
THEY'RE BOISTEROUS
AND THEY'RE EFFUSIVE.
WHO ELSE COULD I BE
TALKING ABOUT?
YES IT'S TIME FOR TWO BOBS.

Mudskipper Bob 1 says YOU KNOW WHAT BOB,
I REALLY THINK YOU'RE ON TO
SOMETHING WITH THESE
CONTEMPORARY DANCE LESSONS.
MY BODY FEELS SO FREE
AND RELAXED.

Mudskipper Bob 2 says I SEEM TO AGREE WITH YOU BOB.
WHAT SAY WE TAKE IT UP A NOTCH
OR TWO?

Mudskipper Bob 1 says GOOD IDEA BOB.

Mudskipper Bob 2 says LET'S GO.

Mudskipper Bob 1 says FIVE, SIX, SEVEN, EIGHT.

Mudskipper Bob 2 says TWELVE, FOURTEEN, TWENTY-THREE,
THIRTEEN.

Mudskipper Bob 1 says OH YEAH.

Mudskipper Bob 1 start slithering in the mud and says MERMAID, TWO, THREE, FOUR.

Mudskipper Bob 2 says BODY FLOP MMM.
BODY FLOP MMM.

Mudskipper Bob 1 says HEY BOB WAS THAT ONE NOTCH
OR TWO YOU JUST TOOK IT UP?

Mudskipper Bob 2 says I TOOK IT UP SIX NOTCHES.
TOO MUCH?

Mudskipper Bob 1 says TOO MUCH. YEAH COULD YOU TAKE IT DOWN
FOUR NOTCHES?

They say BRING IT DOWN.
BRING IT DOWN.
BRING IT DOWN.
BRING IT DOWN.
BRING IT DOWN.

Mudskipper Bob 2 says TOO FAR DOWN?

Mudskipper Bob 1 says YEAH, YEAH, YEAH, YEAH.
TAKE IT, TAKE IT, TAKE IT,
TAKE IT, TAKE IT.

Mudskipper Bob 2 says I COULD NEVER GET TIRED OF THIS.

Mudskipper Bob 1 says I COULD. AND I AM.

Mudskipper Bob 2 says ME TOO.
I AM TIRED.
ALL RIGHT.

Mudskipper Bob 1 says I THINK WE TOOK IT UP
TOO MANY NOTCHES.

Alfie says THOSE BOBS.
AHH BRILLIANT.
THEY'LL BE BACK LATER
ON WITH MORE CHATTER.
BUT NOW IT'S TIME FOR SOMETHING
DIFFERENT.
LET'S ENGAGE IN SOME
ANIMAL EXPLORATION,
LET'S FEED THAT BRAIN OF YOURS.
YES GET READY, IT'S TIME
FOR CREATURE QUIZ.

The announcer says WHICH OF THESE ANIMALS... ..HAS A SKELETON YOU CAN SEE?
IS IT A THE CHAMELEON?
THIS GUY IS ONE IN CHA-MILLION.
B THE KOMODO DRAGON?
DON'T BE DRAGGIN' YOUR FEET
WHEN THIS GUY IS AROUND.
OR C THE CRAB?
DON'T GRAB THE CRAB
OR YOU'LL GET GRABBED.
OKAY NOT SO MUCH GRABBED,
BUT PINCHED REALLY HARD.
LIKE, REALLY HARD.
SO IF YOU ANSWERED A.
THE CHAMELEON, YOU'D BE WRONG.
CHAMELEONS ARE REPTILES,
WHICH MEANS THEY HAVE SCALES
ON THEIR BODY, BUT THEIR
SKELETONS ARE ON THE INSIDE.
BUT IF YOU ANSWERED C THE CRAB,
THEN YOU'VE PINCHED
THE RIGHT ANSWER.
THESE THICK-SHELLED MOVERS ARE
FOUND IN ALL THE WORLD'S SEAS,
FRESHWATER AND EVEN ON LAND.

A crab says YOU BETCHA.

The announcer says PEOPLE EAT THEM AS DELICIOUS
TREATS, BUT MIND THE PINCERS.
UNLIKE HUMANS,
THE CRAB'S SKELETON IS
ON THE OUTSIDE,
WITH ALL ITS VITAL ORGANS KEPT
INSIDE A SUIT OF ARMOUR,
KNOWN AS AN EXOSKELETON.
THEY USE THEIR FRONT CLAWS TO
COMMUNICATE,
ATTRACT POTENTIAL PARTNERS,
GRAB HOLD OF FOOD,
DIG BURROWS AND FIGHT.
UNLIKE OTHER ANIMALS CRABS ARE
WIDE-SET AND LOW TO THE GROUND.
THIS HELPS THEM STAY SAFE
FROM DANGER.
IT'S NOT EASY MOVING QUICKLY
WHEN YOU ARE THIS SHAPE,
BUT THE CRABS HAVE GOT IT
FIGURED OUT.
THEIR LEGS HAVE HINGES MUCH LIKE
A HUMAN KNEE, BUT INSTEAD
OF MOVING FORWARDS THEIR HINGES
MOVE OUTWARDS.

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... ..IN WATERS AROUND THE WORLD
EACH YEAR CROCODILES CLAIM
THOUSANDS OF LIVES?

People say OH NO.

The announcer says BUT IN AUSTRALIA CROCODILES
ARE A PROTECTED SPECIES
AND THEIR POPULATION
IS STEADILY INCREASING.
THEY'RE COLD-BLOODED
AND HAVE LOW ENERGY NEEDS.
A MASSIVE CROC SITTING
IN THE SUN ALL DAY USES THE SAME
AMOUNT OF ENERGY AS A SPARROW.
A BIG CROC CAN SURVIVE A WHOLE
YEAR ON JUST ONE BIG MEAL.
AND THAT'S...

Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT.

Alfie says LET'S HEAD OVER TO DR. KATRINA,
ETHAN AND OBI
AND SEE HOW THEY'RE GETTING ON.
IT'S TIME FOR STEP TWO
OF DOG TRICKS.

Katrina says WELCOME BACK.
WE ARE BUSY TEACHING OBI TO
DANCE AND
SO FAR WE'VE GOT HIM COMFORTABLE
WITH STRETCHING UP
HIS HEAD AND NECK.
THE NEXT STEP IS TO ASK HIM TO
OFFER UP HIS FRONT PAWS
AND HOPEFULLY GO
ON TO HIS BACK LEGS.
SO OBI, COME HERE LITTLE MAN.
WHAT I WILL DO IS I WILL GET YOU
TO COME AROUND AND SIT.
COME HERE.
OBI.
SIT.
OKAY.
ONE TO YOU.
NICE AND CLOSE OVER HIS NOSE.
THAT'S IT, UP.
UP HIGH.
I WILL GIVE YOU ANOTHER TREAT.
THAT'S IT.
PERFECT.
PERFECT.
WE'LL KEEP WORKING ON THIS.
WE WILL BE BACK SOON WITH
STEP THREE,
WHICH IS TO GET HIM TO BALANCE
FOR A LITTLE LONGER
ON HIS BACK LEGS.
THAT WILL BE THE DANCE.

Alfie says TIME FOR SOME HILARITY
AND MERRIMENT
FROM OUR FAVOURITE STAND-UP
HORSE.
GIVE IT UP FOR THE ONE,
THE ONLY HILARIOUS HORSE.
OUR VERY OWN BAD PUN PONY.

Kids say YAY!

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

Bad Pun Pony says WHY DID THE LEOPARD WEAR
A STRIPPED SHIRT?
SO HE WOULDN'T BE SPOTTED.

Ducks chuckle.

Bad Pun Pony says HERE'S ANOTHER ONE.
WHAT KIND OF CATS LIKE
TO GO BOWLING?
WHY ALLEY CATS.

A bunny chuckles.

Kids say BAD PUN PONY YAY!

Alfie says MORE PONY PUNS NEXT TIME.
BUT NOW IT'S TIME
FOR SOMETHING A BIT DIFFERENT.
LET'S TAKE A LOOK AND SEE
IF WE CAN GUESS
THE CORRECT ANIMAL.
IT IS CREATURE QUIZ.

The announcer says WHICH OF THESE ANIMALS... ..USES ITS TONGUE TO SMELL?
IS IT A THE AUSTRALIAN NATIVE
BLACK HEADED PYTHON?
B THE GOANNA,
WHO LOOKS RIGHT AT HOME
SUNBAKING ON THAT ROCK?
OR C ROUNDING OUT OUR TRIFECTA
OF NATIVE AUSTRALIAN ANIMALS,
THE ECHIDNA?
IF YOU ANSWERED A THE BLACK
HEADED PYTHON, YOU ARE CORRECT.
IN AUSTRALIA IT IS EQUALLY
IMPORTANT TO LOOK DOWN
AS IT IS TO LOOK UP,
YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT MIGHT BE
UNDER YOUR FEET.
AUSTRALIA'S PROTECTED
BLACK-HEADED PYTHON MAY LOOK
LETHAL BUT LIKE ALL PYTHONS
THESE GENTLE GIANTS
ARE NOT VENOMOUS.
THEY ARE HOWEVER INCREDIBLY
MUSCULAR
AND AVERAGE A WHOPPING
TWO METRES IN LENGTH,
SOME REACHING THREE POINT FIVE
METRES AS ADULTS.
IN NORTHERN AUSTRALIA A TERMITE
MOUND PROVIDES FOOD AND SHELTER
FOR MORE THAN JUST TERMITES.
IT IS A ONE-STOP SHOP
FOR A BLACK-HEADED PYTHON TO
PICK UP A TASTY MORSEL INCLUDING
SMALL MAMMALS, BIRDS, FROGS
AND OTHER REPTILES.
EVOLUTION HAS HELPED THIS
SPECIES BECOME IMMUNE TO THE
VENOM OF OTHER REPTILES,
ENABLING THEM TO CONSUME
AUSTRALIA'S MOST LETHAL SNAKES
INCLUDING THE
DEADLY DEATH ADDER.
IN THE COOLER MONTHS
OF THE YEAR,
THE BLACK-HEADED PYTHON SWITCHES
FROM A NOCTURNAL
TO DIURNAL HUNTER.
THEIR SPECIAL BLACK HEADS ACT
JUST LIKE A SOLAR PANEL.
WHILE SHELTERING THE REST
OF THEIR BODY,
THEY USE THEIR DARK COLOURED
HEAD TO ATTRACT THE WARMTH
OF THE SUN, WHICH GIVES THEM
THE ENERGY THEY REQUIRE.
LIKE ALL PYTHONS,
THE BLACK HEADED PYTHON CAN MOVE
BOTH HORIZONTALLY
AND VERTICALLY,
MAKING IT AN EXPERT TERMITE
MOUND CLIMBER, WELL, MOSTLY.

A snake slides down a termite mound.

The announcer says ONCE THIS GREEDY GOBBLE GUTS
IS READY TO TUCK
IN TO A TASTY TREAT,
IT WILL SWALLOW ITS PREY WHOLE.
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... ..THE ECHIDNA DOES
NOT HAVE TEETH?
INSTEAD, IT USES STRONG PADS
IN THE MOUTH TO GRIND THE FOOD
BEFORE IT IS SWALLOWED.
THE ECHIDNA'S ELONGATED SNOUT
SERVES AS A NOSE
AND MOUTH AT THE SAME TIME.
THIS AUSSIE PUNK IS COVERED WITH
TWO TYPES OF HAIRS.
SHORT HAIR ACTS LIKE A FUR,
WHICH MAINTAINS THE BODY
TEMPERATURE.
LONG HAIRS TURN INTO SPINES,
WHICH PROVIDE PROTECTION
AGAINST PREDATORS.

A lizard says OH WISE GUY HEY.

The announcer says AND THAT'S...

Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT.

Alfie says RIGHT, TIME TO CHANGE THINGS UP.
IT'S THE PART
OF THE SHOW I ALWAYS LOOK
FORWARD TO, WE'RE GOING TO MEET
A SPECIAL GUEST
AND THEIR SPECIAL PET RIGHT
HERE IN THE HOUSE.
BUT FIRST THERE'S THIS.
(MUSIC AND BOING SOUNDS)

A clip shows a dog resting and wagging its tail as a cat plays with the tail.

(MEOWING)

A caption reads "It’s Pet and Tell."

Alfie sits in the set with a girl and her golden retriever.

Alfie says INTRODUCING SIENNA.
SHE'S BROUGHT IN HER PET DOG
TO TELL US ALL ABOUT.
HOW ARE YOU DOING SIENNA?

Sienna is around 7, with long straight brown hair in a ponytail and wears denim shorts and a blue T-shirt.

Sienna says GOOD. THANK YOU.

Alfie says WELCOME TO THE SHOW.

Sienna says THANK YOU ALFIE.

Alfie says NO WORRIES.
AND WHO IS THIS GORGEOUS DOG?

Sienna says KHALEESI.

Alfie says WHAT TYPE OF DOG IS KHALEESI?

Sienna says SHE IS A GOLD RETRIEVER.

Alfie says OH WOW.
I CAN TELL SHE HAS GOT A REALLY
BEAUTIFUL GOLDEN COAT.
WHAT'S YOUR FAVOURITE THING
ABOUT KHALEESI?

Sienna says THAT SHE'S VERY SOFT AND FLUFFY
AND CUDDLY.

Alfie says YEAH IS SHE A GENTLE DOG?

Sienna says YES.

Alfie says GOLDEN RETRIEVERS.
THEY ARE ONE OF THE MOST
POPULAR FAMILY DOGS.
THEY SHED HAIR A LOT AND NEED
TO BE BRUSHED REGULARLY.
RETRIEVERS ARE SOCIAL
AND SHOULDN'T SPEND HOURS ALONE
IN THE BACK YARD.
THEY ARE QUITE ACTIVE,
REQUIRING FORTY TO SIXTY MINUTES
OF HARD EXERCISE DAILY.
GOLDEN RETRIEVERS LOVE TO EAT
AND WILL QUICKLY BECOME
OVERWEIGHT IF OVER FED.
GOLDEN RETRIEVERS.
HAS KHALEESI GOT ANY WEIRD
OR BAD HABITS?

Sienna says WELL SHE HAS GOT ONE REALLY
BAD HABIT.
WHENEVER OUR CAT POOPS
ON THE LAWN SHE TRIES TO EAT IT
BEFORE WE CAN GET IT.

Alfie says ONE SECOND.
WHEN YOUR CAT POOS ON THE LAWN
WHAT DOES SHE TRY TO DO?

Sienna says EAT IT.

Alfie says CAT POO.
SHE EATS CAT POO.
OH.
SO IF ANOTHER KID WAS YOU KNOW
WANTING TO GET A GOLDEN
RETRIEVER AS A PET WOULD YOU
RECOMMEND IT?

Sienna says YES BECAUSE YOU CAN ALWAYS
HAVE SOMEONE
WHO IS LIKE WHEN YOU'RE BORED
YOU COULD COME OUT AND PLAY
WITH HER AND YOU HAVE ALWAYS
GOT A FURRY FRIEND
BY YOUR SIDE IF YOU NEED ONE.

Alfie says WHAT'S SHE LIKE TO LOOK AFTER?
CAN YOU TAKE US THROUGH A DAILY
ROUTINE WITH KHALEESI?

Sienna says WHAT DOES THAT INVOLVE?
SHE NEEDS TO BE FED
AND SHE NEEDS TO BE... SHE NEEDS
WATER AND SHE NEEDS TO GO
ON WALKS.

Alfie says WHAT IS SHE LIKE WITH BATHS?

Sienna says SHE DOESN'T LIKE THEM THAT MUCH.

Alfie says SO SHE DOESN'T LIKE
HAVING SHOWERS?

Sienna says NO.

Alfie says SHE'D RATHER EAT POO THAN HAVE
A SHOWER?

Sienna says PROBABLY.

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

Sienna says YOU'RE WELCOME.

Alfie says AND THANK YOU FOR BRINGING
IN KHALEESI.

Sienna says YEP.

Alfie says SHE'S SO CUTE.
SPEAKING OF CUTE.
CHECK THIS OUT.

The announcer says AUSTRALIA, HOME TO SOME
OF THE MOST UNIQUE ANIMALS
ON THE PLANET.
KOALAS, WOMBATS AND KANGAROOS.

A baby kangaroo says WOW.

A jumping kangaroo says WEE.

The announcer says THEY'RE ALL PRETTY ADORABLE,
BUT HAVE YOU EVER SEEN
A TREE KANGAROO.

People says AWW.

The announcer says IT'S TRUE SOME ROOS LIVE AMONGST
THE LEAVES.
THEY'RE SMALLER THAN OTHER ROOS,
WITH THEIR TINY PAWS
AND CLAWS THEY SPEND THEIR LIVES
HOPPING FROM TREE TO TREE.
(LAUGHTER)

A kangaroo misses its land and falls of a tree.

The announcer says OOPS, WELL MOSTLY.
THE TREE KANGAROO.
THEY'RE JUST...

Kids say TOO CUTE.

Alfie says OH.
THEY WERE TOO CUTE ALL RIGHT.
WE'LL HAVE MORE
OF THAT NEXT TIME.
BUT NOW IT'S TIME FOR SOMETHING
COMPLETELY DIFFERENT.
LET'S HAVE A BIT
OF ANIMAL ENLIGHTENMENT, A BIT
OF EXPLORATION
AND FEED THAT BRAIN OF YOURS.
IT'S CREATURE QUIZ.

The announcer says WHICH OF THESE ANIMALS... ..PRODUCE ANTI-CANCER
CHEMICALS?
IS IT A THE HUMBLE HAGFISH?
IT SURE GETS ITSELF INTO
STICKY SITUATIONS.
B THE SEA CUCUMBER?
AN ANIMAL WHO'S MOUTH IS ALSO
IT'S BUTT.

Kids say EWW.

The announcer says OR C THE SEA SPONGE?
YES IT IS AN ANIMAL.
NO IT HAS NO BRAIN.
IF YOU ANSWERED C,
THE SEA SPONGE
YOU ARE CORRECT.
AN UNLIKELY INVENTOR
FROM UNDER THE SEA
MAY OFFER HOPE TO HUMAN
CANCER-SUFFERERS
ALL AROUND THE WORLD.
RESEARCHERS AT VICTORIA
UNIVERSITY IN NEW ZEALAND
HAVE DISCOVERED
THAT A VERY DULL SEA SPONGE
PRODUCES A CHEMICAL WITH
ANTI-CANCER PROPERTIES.
THE SEA SPONGES ARE CAREFULLY
SAMPLED BY DIVERS,
A PROCESS THAT DOESN'T HARM
THESE LIVING CREATURES.
THE SAMPLES ARE USED TO GROW
MORE SEA SPONGES,
WHICH MASS-PRODUCE
THE POTENTIALLY LIFE-SAVING
CHEMICAL COMPOUNDS.

A caption reads "Two Bobs."

White Llama Bob says HEY BOB.

Brown Llama bob says YEAH BOB.

White Llama Bob says THE RAVEN FLIES AT MIDNIGHT.

Brown Llama Bob says WHAT'S THAT BOB?

White Llama Bob says THE RAVEN FLIES AT MIDNIGHT BOB.

Brown Llama Bob says WHEN DID YOU JOIN
THE SECRET SOCIETY?

White Llama Bob says JUST NOW BOB.

Brown Llama Bob says OKAY YOU CAN JOIN
ON ONE CONDITION.

White Llama Bob says WHAT'S THAT BOB?

Brown Llama Bob says YOU GIVE ME THE SECRET
PASSWORD?

White Llama Bob says IS IT PASSWORD?

Brown Llama Bob says NO.

White Llama Bob says IS IT BOB?

Brown Llama Bob says NO.

White Llama Bob says IS IT SECRET.

Brown Llama Bob says YES AND NO.

White Llama Bob says IS IT YES OR NO?

Brown Llama Bob says NO.

White Llama Bob says SO IT'S NO?

Brown Llama Bob says NO. YES.

White Llama Bob says NO, YES?

Brown Llama Bob says YES IT'S NOT NO.

I MEAN YES IT IS NO.

White Llama Bob says IT IS NO OR YES?

Brown Llama Bob says IT'S NO.
IT IS NOT NO OR YES.
BUT YOU'RE GETTING CLOSER.

White Llama Bob says SO.
IF CLOSER MEANT FURTHER AWAY.

Brown Llama Bob says I WILL TELL YOU WHAT BOB.

White Llama Bob says TES?

Brown Llama Bob says IT'S SOMETHING THAT
CAN'T BE SEEN.

White Llama Bob farts.
Brown Llama Bob says WELCOME BROTHER BOB.

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... ..LITTLE RED FLYING
FOXES ARE POLLINATORS,
LIKE BEES,
AND ARE VITAL TO THE HEALTH
AND REPRODUCTION
OF FLOWERING TREE SPECIES?
THE MAIN THREAT TO THESE BATS
IS THE LOSS OF TREES
AND THEREFORE THE FLOWERS
AND FRUITS
ON WHICH THEY DEPEND.

A flying fox says HELP, OH OH.

The announcer says THE BATS TRY TO BEAT THE HEAT
BY FANNING THEMSELVES.
WHEN THAT DOESN'T WORK FLYING
FOXES WILL SEEK SHADE
AND THEN LICK THEMSELVES
ALL OVER TO COOL THEIR BODIES.
AND THAT'S...

Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT.

Alfie says WHAT A GREAT FACT HUH?
ALL RIGHT CREATURE FANS,
TIME TO GET A BIT PHILOSOPHICAL.
IT'S TIME FOR A BIT OF
DELIBERATION, A BIT OF
COGITATION AND SPECULATION.
LET'S HAVE A BIT
OF ANALYSIS WITH OUR FAVOURITE
BLACK AND WHITE, ROLY-POLY,
BAMBOO EATING, PONDERING PANDA.

A kid says THE PANDA THAT LIKES
TO PONDER.

A panda on its back says I WISH I HAD REALLY LONG,
BENDY ARMS.
I COULD REACH THINGS WITHOUT
EVEN HAVING TO, LIKE, MOVE.
HOW GREAT WOULD THAT BE?
I COULD USE MY REALLY LONG,
BENDY ARMS TO ITCH MY FEET
AND IF I RAN OUT OF BAMBOO,
I WOULDN'T HAVE TO WALK THROUGH
THE FOREST TO GET MORE.
I COULD JUST USE MY REALLY LONG
BENDY ARMS
TO PICK THE BAMBOO OUT
OF THE GROUND
WHILE I WAS STILL LYING DOWN.
SWEET.

Alfie says AND THAT MY CREATURE FRIENDS
WAS THE PONDERING PANDA.
SO, SO WEIRD.
ANYWAY.
TIME TO HEAD OVER
FOR THE FINAL TEST.
WILL ETHAN BE ABLE TO TEACH
OBI STEP THREE OF DANCE?
LET'S FIND OUT.
IT'S DOG TRICKS.

Katrina says WELCOME BACK.
ETHAN AND I ARE TEACHING
OBI TO DANCE.
SO, SO FAR STEP ONE WAS
TEACHING HIM TO BE COMFORTABLE
TO HOLD UP HIS HEAD.
STEP TWO WAS TO GO UP
ON HIS BACK LEGS
FOR A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME
AND STEP THREE IS TO GET HIM TO
BALANCE FOR A LITTLE LONGER
ON THOSE BACK LEGS.
IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT THIS
SHOULDN'T BE DONE IF YOU HAVE A
LITTLE PUPPY, A LARGE DOG
OR AN OLDER DOG BECAUSE IT IS
QUITE TOUGH ON A DOG'S HIPS.
HELLO.
WHAT I AM GOING TO DO,
I AM GOING TO BRING HIM BACK.
ASK HIM TO SIT.
HOLD THAT TREAT UP AND GOOD BOY.
GOING WITH HIM A LITTLE BIT
THIS TIME OKAY.
SO ENCOURAGING HIM
WITH THAT TREAT.
PERFECT.
BRING HIM BACK IN.
ASK HIM TO SIT.
SIT AND THEN.
JUST ASK HIM TO SIT AGAIN.
NICE AND CLOSE, NICE AND CLOSE.
PUT THE TREAT ON HIS NOSE
AND THEN HOLD IT UP.
GO WITH HIM, GO WITH HIM.
PERFECT.
DO YOU WANT TO DO ONE MORE TIME?
CALL HIM IN.
OBI COME.
COME.
GIVE YOU THIS TREAT AGAIN.
SO SIT.
UP THE NOSE.
PERFECT.
THANK YOU SO MUCH.
I HAVE HAD A GREAT TIME.
I THINK OBI IS ONE OF THE CUTEST
DOGS I HAVE EVER MET.
I HOPE YOU'VE ENJOYED
HIS DOG TRICK.
I'LL BE BACK NEXT TIME WITH
ANOTHER ONE.
AND THAT'S IT
FOR THIS TODAY'S SHOW GUYS.

Alfie says I HOPE YOU ENJOYED MEETING ETHAN
AND OBI, AND SIENNA
AND HER DOG KHALEESI.
WHAT A DOG FEST
WE'VE HAD TODAY.
NOT TO MENTION FINDING OUT ABOUT
THE WEIRD SEA SPONGES
AND INCREDIBLE
BLACK HEADED PYTHON.
WOW.
FOR MORE CREEPY, CRAZY, FLUFFY
AND FUN ANIMALS,
YOU KNOW WHERE TO GO.
AND REMEMBER ANIMALS ARE AWESOME
AND PETS ARE PALS.
I'M ALFIE.
JOIN ME NEXT TIME
ON
CREATURE MANIA.
