(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 CREATURE MANIACS,
WELCOME TO THE SHOW
THAT'S ALL ABOUT
OUR ANIMAL FRIENDS
AND COMPLETELY CREATURE CRAZY.
IT'S CREATURE MANIA.
TODAY THERE WILL BE
HOOVES AND PAWS,
WINGS AND FLIPPERS.
COMING UP...

Clips show different types of animals as Alfie says WE CHECK OUT SOME
DARING CREATURES,
LIKE THE DEADLY DEATH ADDER,
THE BARBAROUS STINGRAY,
AND THE PINCHING MANGROVE CRAB.
WE HAVE A LAUGH WITH
PANDA AND PONY,
AND MEET A CUTE LITTLE SQUEAKER
IN PET AND TELL.
PLUS, LOTS, LOTS MORE.
IT'S GOING TO BE A PACKED SHOW.
SO LET'S KICK IT OFF
WITH A OUR GOOD FRIEND
DR KATRINA
AND SEE WHAT LUCKY
YOUNG DOG TRAINER
AND THEIR PAL
ARE COMING ALONG TODAY
AND WHAT TRICK
THEY'RE GOING TO LEARN.
IT'S 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 INCREDIBLE
WONDER DOGS.
TODAY WE'RE GOING
TO SHOW YOU HOW
TO TEACH YOUR DOG TO FETCH
AND TRICK IS GOING
TO DEMONSTRATE THIS ONE 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: SAUSAGE.
THREE WORDS TO DESCRIBE TRICK:
NAUGHTY, ACTIVE AND PLAYFUL.
OKAY LET'S SEE
TRICK DEMONSTRATE.
((music plays))

A caption reads "Learn to fetch."

Katrina makes Trick fetch a toy and says SIT.
FETCH IS A FUN,
ACTIVE TRICK THAT YOU CAN
DO WITH YOUR DOG AT HOME.
YOU CAN START OVER
LITTLE DISTANCES
AND BUILD THAT UP
TO GIVE YOUR DOG
A GREAT WORK OUT.
WELL THAT WAS OUR
EXPERT DEMONSTRATION.
NOW IT'S TIME
TO MEET OUR BUDDING
YOUNG DOG TRAINER
AND THEIR DOG.

Katrina sits on a bench with a boy and his curly golden hair dog.

Katrina says I AM HERE TODAY WITH MILES
AND HIS GORGEOUS DOG DJ.
TELL ME A LITTLE BIT ABOUT DJ.

Miles is around 10, with short blond hair and wears denim shorts and a blue T-shirt.

Miles says HE'S A REALLY FUN DOG
TO PLAY WITH AND HE IS A POODLE
CROSS WITH A GOLDEN RETRIEVER.

Katrina says HOW OLD IS HE?

Miles says TWELVE MONTHS OLD.

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

Miles says WHEN YOU ARE ALONE
YOU CAN HAVE HIM TO PAT.

Katrina says WOULD YOU LIKE TO
LEARN SOME TRICKS?

Miles says YES PLEASE.

Katrina says EXCELLENT. WE'LL GET TO IT.
TODAY WE'RE GOING TO
TEACH DJ HOW TO FETCH.
NOW THE FIRST STEP WITH THIS
IS TO FIND A TOY THAT
HE IS ACTUALLY INTERESTED IN.
SOMETHING THAT HE
WANTS TO PLAY WITH.
NOW BECAUSE HE IS SUCH A BIG DOG
I AM GOING TO DO THIS
JUST FOR SAFETY AND IF
YOU ARE DOING ANY TRAINING
AT HOME WITH YOUR DOG
IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT
THAT YOU DO HAVE
ADULT SUPERVISION.
DJ, WHICH ONE DO YOU WANT?

She shows DJ a couple of toys and says WHICH ONE?
YOU LIKE THAT ONE?
DO YOU LIKE THAT ONE?
DO YOU LIKE THAT ONE?
WHAT DO YOU WANT?

DJ chews on a fluffy blue toy.

Katrina says THAT ONE. OKAY.
WELL THAT'S OUR
CHOSEN TOY.
WE'LL BE BACK SOON WITH STEP TWO
WHICH IS ENCOURAGING HIM
TO CHASE IT.

Dean says SIT.

Katrina says OH YOU WANT YOUR TREATS
AS WELL.
YOU ARE CHEEKY.
YOU ARE CHEEKY.

Alfie says DJ LOOKS LIKE HE LOVES TO CHASE.
I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO FINDING
OUT HOW MILES GOES WITH
TODAY'S TRICK TRAINING.
WE'LL COME BACK AND CHECK IN
WITH THEM A LITTLE LATER
ON IN THE SHOW BUT FIRST THINGS
FIRST,
IT'S TIME FOR AN ANIMAL FACT.

The announcer says DID YOU KNOW, THE COMMON
DEATH ADDER IS FOUND MAINLY
ON THE EAST COAST OF AUSTRALIA
AND IT IS ONE OF THE DEADLIEST
SNAKES IN THE WORLD?
THE DEATH ADDER LIES IN WAIT
OFTEN FOR MANY DAYS
UNTIL A MEAL PASSES.
THIS AMBUSH HUNTING MAKES
THE DEATH ADDER MORE
OF A THREAT TO HUMANS.
MOST OTHER SNAKES WILL MOVE AWAY
FROM THE FIRST SIGN OF DANGER
WHEREAS DEATH ADDERS TEND TO
SIT TIGHT AND RELY
ON THEIR CAMOUFLAGE.
AND THAT'S...

Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT.
AND NOW MY CREATURE FRIENDS
IT'S TIME TO MEET A FEW OTHER
PALS OF MINE.
THEY'RE EFFUSIVE,
THEY'RE GARRULOUS,
THEY'RE WELL SPOKEN
AND THEY'RE SOCIABLE.
WHO ELSE COULD I
BE TALKING ABOUT?
NO IT'S NOT ME.
IT'S MY TWO FRIENDS,
THE TWO BOBS.

Penguin Bob 1 says IT'S BOB AND BOB HERE
WITH THE WORLD BELLY FLOP
CHAMPIONSHIPS AT
THE ANTARCTIC AQUATIC CENTRE
OR AAC AS WE LIKE TO CALL IT.

Penguin Bob 2 says THAT'S RIGHT BOB AND
A LOT OF COMPETITORS
ARE A BIT DISAPPOINTED BY
THE LACK OF BOUNCE ON THE ICE,
AIN'T THEY BOB?

Penguin Bob 1 says SURE ARE BOB.
THE ICE IS A LITTLE STIFF.
IT HAS BEEN MAKING FOR
SOME VERY PAINFUL LANDINGS.

Penguin Bob 2 says YOU SAID IT. LET'S TAKE
A LOOK AT THE RUSSIAN
BOB BOBORENKO WHO TOOK A BIG
WALLOP IN HIS EARLIER FINAL.

Bob Boborenko falls in an ice hole.

Penguin Bob 1 says WOW. HE'S BEEN TAKEN BY
A KILLER WHALE.
THAT'S GOING TO HURT
IN THE MORNING.

Penguin Bob 2 says AND A LITTLE IN THE AFTERNOON.

Penguin Bob 1 says LOOKS LIKE THOSE WHALES
ARE RUNNING THEIR OWN
COMPETITION.
OH HE'S BACK.
WOW THOSE WHALES DON'T EAT
RUSSIAN DO THEY BOB?

Alfie says OH THOSE TWO BOBS.
I'M NEVER SURE WHAT TO
EXPECT FROM THEM.
WE'LL SEE WHAT ELSE THEY HAVE
TO SAY LATER ON.
BUT NOW IT'S TIME TO TEST
YOUR CREATURE COMPREHENSION.
THROW ON YOUR THINKING CAPS AND
GET READY TO FEED THAT BRAIN.
IT'S CREATURE QUIZ.

The announcer says WHICH OF THE THESE ANIMALS
USES A TOOL TO GET THEIR FOOD?
IS IT A THE NOSEY ELEPHANTS?
B THE TERRIBLY CUTE TARSIER?
OR IS IT C THE MOST FASHIONABLE
OF ALL VULTURES:
THE EGYPTIAN VULTURE?

An Egyptian vulture says SWEET SALTY SOCKS.
C IS CORRECT.
EGYPTIAN VULTURES USE TOOLS
TO GET TO THEIR FOOD.
AN OSTRICH EGG HAS GOT
ONE OF THE TOUGHEST SHELLS
IN THE WORLD, WHICH POSES
A BIG PROBLEM FOR
THE EGYPTIAN VULTURE.
BUT NOT FOR LONG.
THE SMALLEST OF ALL
THE OLD WORLD VULTURES
ITS RELATIVELY WEAK BEAK
AND CLAWS COULD NEVER
BREAK AN EGGSHELL THAT'S
STRONG ENOUGH TO SUPPORT
THE WEIGHT OF A HUMAN.
SO INSTEAD IT USES ITS BRAIN.
ALL IT HAS TO DO IS FIND
A SUITABLE ROCK TO GET CRACKING.

A vulture says MAYBE, OH I FOUND ONE.

The announcer says A VULTURE CAN WANDER
OVER FORTY METERS
IN SEARCH OF THE PERFECT ROCK.

The vulture says STUPID ROCK.

The announcer says IT'S ALWAYS SHAPED LIKE AN EGG,
WHICH SUGGESTS THAT
ONCE VULTURES PICKED UP
AND DROPPED SMALL EGGS
TO CRACK THEM OPEN.
THEN ONE DAY,
A CULINARY GENIUS
MUST HAVE PICKED UP
AN EGG-SHAPED ROCK,
DROPPED IT ONTO AN OSTRICH EGG,
AND BEEN REWARDED WITH
AN INSTANT OMELETTE.

Alfie says ALRIGHT GUYS, STILL TO COME
ON TODAY'S SHOW.
WE HAVE MORE K9 CRAZINESS
IN DOG TRICKS.
LOADS OF LAUGHS
WITH BAD PUN PONY.
A TRUCKLOAD OF ANIMAL
AMAZINGNESS IN CREATURE QUIZ.
SOME ASTONISHING ANIMAL FACTS
AND WE MEET OUR PET AND TELL
GUEST
AND HEAR SOME HILARITY
FROM THE TWO BOBS.
ALL THAT STILL TO COME
ON CREATURE MANIA.

The announcer says DID YOU KNOW WHILE PAINFUL,
STINGRAY VENOM ISN'T USUALLY
DEADLY UNLESS VICTIMS ARE STUNG
IN THE CHEST OR ABDOMEN?
MOST STINGRAYS ATTACK WHEN A
DIVER IS SWIMMING DIRECTLY
OVER OR IN FRONT OF A RAY,
BLOCKING ITS ESCAPE ROUTE.

A sting ray says TAKE A HIKE.

The announcer says IN ANCIENT GREECE, VENOM
WAS ACTUALLY EXTRACTED
FROM STINGRAY SPINES FOR
THE PURPOSE OF BEING USED
AS AN ANAESTHETIC
BY DENTISTS. AND THAT'S and

Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT.

Alfie says STINGRAYS ARE PRETTY AWESOME
BUT COULD THEY FETCH A BALL
IF YOU THREW IT?
I DON'T THINK SO.
I'M NOT SURE THEY'D MAKE
THE BEST PETS.
BUT DJ, THE AMAZINGLY CUDDLY DOG
LOOKS LIKE A GREAT PET.
I JUST HOPE THAT MILES
AND DR KATRINA CAN TEACH HIM
HOW TO FETCH.
LET'S SEE
HOW THEY'RE GETTING ON.
IT'S TIME FOR STEP TWO OF
DOG TRICKS.

Katrina says WELCOME BACK.
MILES AND I ARE TEACHING
DJ TO FETCH.
NOW DJ CHOSE HIS TOY
IN STEP ONE.
THIS IS THE ONE THAT
HE WAS REALLY INTERESTED IN.
STEP TWO IS REV HIM UP
A LITTLE BIT SO HE
REALLY WANTS THAT TOY.
I AM GOING TO GET YOU
TO THROW IT FOR US
AND HOPEFULLY ENCOURAGE HIM.
HOPEFULLY
HE WILL CHASE THAT TOY.
OKAY. ARE YOU READY DJ?
READY WHEN YOU'RE READY.
GOOD BOY. FETCH IT.
GOOD BOY. OKAY GREAT MILES.
HE IS DOING WELL HUH.
HE LIKES THAT TOY.
THAT WAS STEP TWO, WE'LL BE
BACK SOON WITH STEP THREE,
WHICH IS TO SEE IF WE CAN
ACTUALLY GET DJ TO COME BACK.

Alfie says WE'LL HAVE MORE FROM
DR KATRINA AND DOG TRICKS
LATER ON.
BUT FIRST TIME FOR A BIT OF FUN.
LET'S ALL REJOICE AND HAVE
A LAUGH WITH OUR FAVOURITE JOKE
TELLING PAL.
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 DOES A ROOSTER WATCH TV?
FOR HEN-TERTAINMENT.

Ducks chuckle.

Bad Pun Pony says WHAT ABOUT THIS ONE?
WHICH KIND OF SNAKES
ARE FOUND ON CARS?
WINDSHIELD VIPERS.

A bunny chuckles.

Kids say BAD PUN PONY YAY.

Alfie says OH THAT PONY CRACKS ME UP
AND WE'LL HAVE MORE CRACK UPS
FROM OUR HILARIOUS HORSE
ON THE NEXT SHOW.
BUT NOW LET'S SEE
SOME MORE INCREDIBLE ANIMALS
AND TEST OUR CREATURE KNOWLEDGE
WHILE WE'RE AT IT.
IT'S TIME FOR
ANOTHER CREATURE QUIZ.

The announcer says WHICH OF THESE ANIMALS
HAS VENOM GLANDS
BETWEEN THEIR TEETH?
IS IT A THE RAVENOUS
TASMANIAN DEVIL?
B THE KOMODO DRAGON?
A MODERN DAY MONSTER.
OR C THE ANACONDA?
WHO JUST LOVES A CUDDLE?

An anaconda says HA HA HA HA HA.

The announcer says EWW SNAKE CUDDLES.
IF YOU THINK THE KOMODO DRAGON
HAS THE VENOM GLANDS,
YOU ARE CORRECT.
ON REMOTE ISLANDS OF INDONESIA
THERE'S A GIANT LIZARD
THAT REIGNS SUPREME.
ONE BITE IS ALL IT TAKES
TO BRING DOWN AN ANIMAL
THE SIZE OF A BUFFALO.
DRAGONS HAVE THE WORST BREATH.

A dragon says I BRUSH MY TEETH.

The announcer says INSIDE ITS MOUTH FESTERING MEAT
TRAPPED IN THE KOMODO'S TEETH
TURNS ITS SALIVA INTO
A BACTERIAL BROTH.
KOMODO DRAGON'S HAVE
MORE THAN SIXTY TEETH
AND ALL OF THEM ARE AS SHARP
AND SERRATED AS STEAK KNIVES.
FOR DECADES IT WAS BELIEVED
THAT A KOMODO WOULD BITE
ITS PREY, TRANSFERRING DEADLY
STRANDS OF BACTERIA FROM ITS
SALIVA INTO THE VICTIM'S WOUND.
HOWEVER SCIENTISTS HAVE SINCE
DISCOVERED THAT KOMODO DRAGONS
ACTUALLY HAVE VENOM GLANDS
LOCATED BETWEEN THEIR TEETH,
WHICH EXCELS THE BLOOD LOSS
AND SENDS THE VICTIMS
INTO SHOCK.
AND THEN IT'S FEEDING TIME.

A buffalo says OH OH.

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.

The announcer says DID YOU KNOW THAT
MANGROVE CRABS HAVE
DEFENCE MECHANISMS?
THE MAIN ONE FOR MANGROVE CRABS
IS THAT THEY CAN MAKE
USE OF THEIR MUDDY SURROUNDINGS
BY BURROWING INTO THE MUD TO
PROTECT THEMSELVES.
(SCREAMING)
AND IT MAKES SENSE TO BURROW
INTO THE GROUND, AS THE NATURAL
PREDATORS OF MANGROVE CRABS
ARE BIRDS.
AND SINCE MANGROVE CRABS ARE
ALSO IDENTIFIED AS
SWIMMING CRABS, ONCE THE
DANGER IS GONE, THEY CAN PADDLE
TO THEIR NEXT DESTINATION.
AND THAT'S...

Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT.

Alfie says OKAY CREATURE FANS
IT'S THAT TIME OF THE SHOW
WE ALL LOOK FORWARD TO.
YES YOU GUESSED IT.
IT'S TIME FOR PET AND TELL
WITH A NEW GUEST AND THEIR PET.
BUT FIRST THERE'S THIS.
((music plays))

A clip in slow motion shows a cap playing with yarn.

A caption reads "It’s Pet and Tell."

Alfie sits in the set with a girl and her pet.

Alfie says INTRODUCING LEAH.
SHE HAS BROUGHT IN
HER PET TO SHOW US.
HELLO LEAH.

Leah is around 12, with long wavy brown hair in a ponytail and wears printed orange shorts and a white T-shirt.

Leah says HELLO ALFIE.

Alfie says WELCOME TO THE SHOW.

Leah says THANK YOU.

Alfie says WHO'S THIS?

Leah says THIS IS TWILIGHT.
YEAH AND WHAT IS TWILIGHT?

Alfie says HE IS A GUINEA PIG.

Leah says HE'S A GUINEA PIG.

Alfie says SO HOW LONG HAVE
YOU HAD TWILIGHT FOR?

Leah says AHH AROUND TWO AND A HALF YEARS.

Alfie says YEAH? WOW. SO WHAT DO YOU
DO TO CARE FOR TWILIGHT?

Leah says AHH WELL I FEED HIM.
I CLEAN HIS CAGE WITH MY SISTER.
YEAH ME AND MY SISTER
TAKE FULL RESPONSIBILITY.

Alfie says ABYSSINIAN GUINEA PIGS.
THESE SPECIES TEND TO
BE VERY MISCHIEVOUS THANKS
TO THEIR UPBEAT AND CURIOUS
PERSONALITIES.
THIS PARTICULAR BREED SEEMS
TO ENJOY BEING AROUND HUMANS
MUCH MORE THAN OTHERS.
IT'S RATHER EASY TO DEVELOP
A GOOD RELATIONSHIP WITH
AN ABYSSINIAN BECAUSE THEY ARE
VERY PERSONAL CREATURES.
ABYSSINIAN GUINEA PIGS.
SO YOU TAKE A LOT OF
RESPONSIBILITY IN LOOKING
AFTER TWILIGHT DON'T YOU?

Leah says YEAH I DO.

Alfie says YEAH WHAT DOES THAT,
WHAT DOES THAT INCLUDE?

Leah says THAT INCLUDES WASHING HIM
LIKE ONCE EVERY TWO MONTHS.
CLEANING HIS CAGE, FEEDING HIM.

Alfie says WHAT DOES TWILIGHT EAT?

Leah says AHH WELL HE EATS CARROTS, CELERY
AND HE ALSO EATS A LOT
OF OUR LEFT OVER VEGETABLES.

Alfie says DOES TWILIGHT HAVE ANY LIKE
UNUSUAL OR WEIRD HABITS?

Leah says AHH WELL WHEN ME AND MY SISTER
ARE COMING BACK FROM SCHOOL
UMM HE CAN HEAR US FROM
A DISTANCE AND HE STARTS
SQUEAKING WHEN WE COME AROUND.

Alfie says SO HE RECOGNISES YOUR SOUND
FROM A DISTANCE?

Leah says YEAH.

Alfie says WOW.
SO WHAT'S YOUR MOST FAVOURITE
THING ABOUT TWILIGHT?

Leah says WELL HE IS VERY CUTE AND THE
SOUNDS THAT HE MAKES AND
THAT MAKES ME VERY HAPPY. YEAH.

Alfie says YEAH AND WHAT'S YOUR LEAST
FAVOURITE THING ABOUT TWILIGHT?

Leah says WELL EVERY TIME HE GOES ON
MY DAD HE ALWAYS ENDS UP WEEING
OR POOPING. EVERY SINGLE TIME.

Alfie says REALLY?

Leah says YEP.

Alfie laughs and says WELL THANK YOU SO MUCH
FOR COMING IN TODAY LEAH.

Leah says THANK YOU ALFIE.

Alfie says AND THANK YOU FOR INTRODUCING
US TO YOUR BEAUTIFUL
GUINEA PIG TWILIGHT.

Leah says NO WORRIES.

Alfie says YOU SOUND LIKE A REALLY
RESPONSIBLE PET OWNER.

Leah says I THINK I AM.

Alfie says WELL DONE.

They shake hands.

Alfie says NOW THIS.

The announcer says AUSTRALIA IS HOME TO
SOME FREAKY LOOKING CREATURES.
YES, I'M TALKING ABOUT YOU
MR LIZARD AND YOU TOO
TOAD FACE.
BUT SOME ARE SIMPLY ADORABLE.
LIKE THE QUOLL.

People say OH.

The announcer says THESE MARVELLOUS MARSUPIALS
CAN BE FOUND IN AUSTRALIA
AND NEW GUINEA AND SOME HAVE
WHITE POLKA DOTS ON THEIR BACKS,
THEY HAVE BRIGHT PINK NOSES
AND LONG SNOUTS,
THESE FURY LITTLE CRITTERS
ARE SUPER SHY,
MAINLY NOCTURNAL AND SPEND
MOST OF THE DAY BEING LAZY
LITTLE FUR BALLS AND JUST
LAYING ABOUT.
THESE QUALITY CRITTERS
ARE JUST...

Kids say TOO CUTE.

Alfie says MORE CUTENESS ON THE NEXT SHOW.
BUT NOW IT'S TIME TO TEST
YOUR CREATURE IQ
AND FEED THAT BRAIN.
ARE YOU READY?
IT'S TIME FOR CREATURE QUIZ.

The announcer says WHICH OF THESE ANIMALS
IS COMMONLY REFERRED TO
AS A LIVING DINOSAUR?
IS IT A THE CROCODILE?
B THE EMU?
THOSE LEGS DO LOOK
A LITTLE PREHISTORIC.
OR C THE RHINOCEROS BEETLE?
IF YOU ANSWERED A THE CROCODILE
THEN APPLAUSE, APPLAUSE,
YOU ARE CORRECT.
WOULD YOU RUN A HUNDRED MILES
TO FLEE A FLOAT OF CROCODILES?
THE CUNNING CROCODILE IS MUCH
THE SAME AS IT WAS
EIGHTEEN MILLION YEARS AGO.
THEY ARE AS OLD AS DINOSAURS BUT
UNLIKE OTHER PREHISTORIC SPECIES
THE TOUGH CROCODILIAN STILL
ROAMS RIVERS, OCEANS AND
BILLABONGS IN FOUR CONTINENTS
TODAY: AFRICA, ASIA, AMERICA
AND AUSTRALIA.
CROCODILES ARE LARGE AQUATIC
REPTILES THAT LIVE BOTH
ON LAND AND WATER.
THE LARGEST IS AUSTRALIA'S
HEFTY SALT-WATER CROCODILE.
THESE APEX PREDATORS CAN GROW UP
TO SIX METRES IN LENGTH
AND WEIGH UP TO
ONE THOUSAND KILOGRAMS.
THE AGGRESSIVE SALT-WATER
CROCODILE HAS THE MOST POWERFUL
BITE ON EARTH.
THEIR GIANT GOBS ARE CAPABLE OF
CRUSHING ANYTHING FROM A BONE
TO CAST IRON.
THEY MATCH THEIR BITE TO THE
SUPREME KILLING
AND DEFENCE STRATEGY
CALLED THE GAP ROLL.
JUST LIKE A DOG PANTS AND HUMANS
SWEAT CROCODILES OPEN
THEIR MOUTH TO REGULATE
THEIR BODY'S TEMPERATURE.
BEING NEWLY HATCHED YOUNGSTERS
SURE IS FRIGHTENING.
EVEN FOR CROCODILES.
AUSTRALIA'S FRESH WATER CROC
HATCHLINGS ARE VULNERABLE
TO LARGE PREDATORS INCLUDING
BIRDS OR PREY, TURTLES,
LIZARDS AND OTHER ADULT CROCS.
LUCKY FOR SALT-WATER CROC
HATCHLINGS THEY HAVE ONE
PROTECTING MUM LURKING
AROUND THEIR NEST.
MOTHER CROCODILES AGGRESSIVELY
PROTECT THEIR YOUNG WITH
A SIZEABLE MOUTH FULL OF
SEVENTY-TWO TEETH
SHE'S SURE TO KEEP AWAY
A PREDATOR OR TWO. YIKES.
CROCODILES MIGHT LOOK SCARY
BUT UNLESS THEY FEEL THREATENED
THESE WALKING DINOSAURS WILL
USUALLY FLEE RATHER THAN FIGHT.
SEE YA LATER ALLIGATOR.

A caption reads "Two Bobs."

Inside a hollow log, Wombat Bob 1 says OH NOT COOL. NOT COOL.

Wombat Bob 2 says BOB, WAKE UP, WAKE UP.
ARE YOU OKAY BOB?

Wombat Bob 1 says YEAH I WAS JUST HAVING
A GRASS MARE.

Wombat Bob 2 says GRASS MARE?

Wombat Bob 1 says YOU KNOW WHEN YOU EAT TOO MUCH
GRASS AND YOU HAVE BAD DREAMS?

Wombat Bob 2 says MAYBE YOU SHOULD GO EASY
ON THE GRASS MATE.

Wombat Bob 1 says LOOK GRASS. MMM.

Wombat Bob 2 says THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT I AM
TALKING ABOUT BOB.
EASE UP ON THE GRASS.

Wombat Bob 1 eats grass and says GRASS.

Wombat Bob 2 says SLOW DOWN BOB. SLOW IT DOWN.

Wombat Bob 1 says I KNOW WHAT I'M DOING.

Wombat Bob 2 says SLOW IT DOWN.

Wombat Bob 1 says ALL RIGHT.

Wombat Bob 2 says CUTTING YOU OFF. STOP.

Wombat Bob 1 says OKAY YOU DON'T MIND
IF I EAT YOUR BITS DO YOU?

Wombat Bob 2 says WELL. OKAY.

Wombat Bob 1 says THANKS FOR SLOWING ME DOWN BOB.
GEE YOU ATE A LOT OF GRASS.

Back in the log, Wombat Bob 2 says AHH. GRASS MARE. GRASS MARE.

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 ROLLY, POLLY 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 THE STAG BEETLE
HAS A UNIQUE WAY OF LOOKING
AT THE WORLD?
THEIR COMPOUND EYES ARE
MADE UP OF MULTIPLE LENSES
THAT SEE UV LIGHT.
WELL YOU DON'T SEE

A stag beetle says THAT EVERY DAY.

The announcer says PARTICULARLY COOLER COLOURS LIKE
BLUE AND WHITE.
AS A RESULT
MANY OF A STAG BEETLE'S
FAVOURITE FOODS INCLUDING
FLOWERS AND FRUIT FALL INTO
THIS COLOUR SPECTRUM.
AND THAT'S...
Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT.

Alfie says ALL RIGHT CREATURE CRAZIES TIME
FOR A BIT OF PHILOSOPHY
WITH A BEAR WHO LIKES TO
CONTEMPLATE,
HE LIKES TO PONDER AND COGITATE
AND PUZZLE AND DWELL.
YES IT'S OUR FAVOURITE
BAMBOO-EATING, ROLLIE POLY,
ADORABLE PONDERING PANDA.

A caption reads "Pondering Panda."

A panda on its back says YOU KNOW HOW PANDAS
ARE BORN WITHOUT TEETH?
DOES THAT MEAN MY TEETH ARE
ACTUALLY YOUNGER THAN I AM?
BECAUSE MUMMY PANDA TOLD ME
I DIDN'T GROW TEETH UNTIL I WAS
SIX MONTHS OLD.
SO LIKE, MY TEETH WEREN'T BORN
UNTIL HALF A YEAR AFTER ME.
WOW. DOES THAT MEAN I SHOULD
BE HAVING TWO BIRTHDAYS
EVERY YEAR?
ONE FOR ME, AND ONE FOR
MY TEETH?
YEAH. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TEETH.

Alfie says ALL RIGHT GUYS. IT'S TIME
TO CHECK BACK WITH DR KATRINA
AND SEE IF MILES CAN TEACH DJ
TO FETCH A TOY AND ACTUALLY
BRING IT BACK.
IT'S DOG TRICKS.

Katrina says WELCOME BACK. MILES AND I
ARE TEACHING DJ TO FETCH.
NOW FIRST STEP WAS GETTING HIM
TO CHOOSE A TOY THAT HE REALLY
LIKED AND HE REALLY LOVES
THIS ONE DOESN'T HE?
SECOND STEP WAS GETTING HIM
CHASING IT, WHICH HE IS REALLY
GOOD AT AS WELL.
THIRD STEP IS NOW TO
ENCOURAGE HIM TO COME BACK.
THIS IS OUR FINAL STEP.
IT CAN BE A BIT TRICKY
SO WE NEED LOTS OF
ENCOURAGEMENT.
SO I WANT YOU TO REALLY REV
HIM UP WITH THE TOY
SO HE IS REALLY INTO IT.
ONCE HE HAS GOT IT WE WILL CALL
HIM BACK AND SAY FETCH AS
WE SEND HIM OUT AS WELL.
OKAY ARE YOU READY?
REV HIM UP A BIT.
COME ON DJ. OKAY TOSS IT.
FETCH IT. GOOD BOY. DJ COME.

Miles says COME ON DJ. COME ON.

Katrina says COME ON BUDDY. COME ON.

Miles says COME ON.

Katrina says CALL HIM BACK.

Miles says DJ. DJ.

Katrina says CALL HIM BACK. DJ. COME ON.
TREAT. DJ. DJ.
COME ON BUDDY.
YOU GOT IT.
COME ON.
OKAY WELL LOOKS LIKE
WE'VE GOT A LITTLE
BIT MORE TRAINING TO DO.
THEY'RE NOT ALWAYS SUCCESSFUL
STRAIGHT AWAY BUT WE CAN WORK
ON THIS RIGHT?
HE HAS DONE REALLY WELL
HASN'T HE?

Miles says YEP.

Katrina says ARE YOU PROUD OF HIM?

Miles says YEP.

Katrina says DO YOU ENJOY TRAINING HIM?

Miles says YEAH VERY MUCH.

Katrina says DO YOU THINK YOU WILL DO MORE
TRAINING WITH HIM AT HOME?

Miles says YES.

Katrina says WELL IT WAS LOVELY TO WATCH
YOU GUYS WORKING TOGETHER.
I HOPE YOU'VE ENJOYED
WATCHING MILES AND DJ.
I'LL BE BACK NEXT TIME
WITH ANOTHER DOG TRICK.

Alfie says WELL, THAT'S ALL
WE HAVE TIME FOR TODAY.
IT WAS AWESOME TO MEET LEAH
AND HER GUINEA PIG.
SO CUTE. AND WE'VE SEEN
SOME PRETTY INCREDIBLE CREATURES
TODAY: THE KOMODO DRAGONS,
THE VULTURES AND EVEN
A DEATH ADDER.
WOW. IF YOU'RE AFTER MORE
ANIMAL MADNESS, THERE'S ONLY
ONE PLACE TO BE AND REMEMBER
ANIMALS ARE AWESOME
