(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.

Alfie says HEY CREATURE MANIACS,
WELCOME TO THE SHOW
THAT'S ALL ABOUT
OUR ANIMAL FRIENDS
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 NORTH TO MEET
SOME POLAR BEARS, GO FISHING
WITH SOME BROWN BEARS AND
CHECK OUT SOME AMAZING EMUS.
WE HAVE A LAUGH WITH PANDA
AND PONY AND MEET KNOX
AND HIS BEST BUDDY
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 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 LAY 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.

Katrina sits on a bench with Maddy and her dog.

Katrina says I AM HERE WITH MADDY
AND HER GORGEOUS DOG MONTY.
TELL ME A LITTLE
BIT ABOUT MONTY.

Maddy is around 12, with long wavy blond hair in a ponytail and wears gray shorts and a blue T-shirt.

Maddy says SO HE IS EIGHT MONTHS OLD
AND HE IS A POODLE CROSS.

Katrina says AND HE LOVES TREATS.
HE IS ALREADY ON TO MY TREATS.
SO HE IS EASY TO TRAIN I BET.

Maddy says YEAH.

Katrina says WHAT DO YOU LIKE
ABOUT HAVING A DOG?

Maddy says WELL I LIKE THE WAY
IT MAKES US GO OUTSIDE
AND HAVE FRESH AIR
AND HELPS US GET EXERCISE.

Katrina says YEP. THAT'S GREAT THOUGH.
IT KEEPS YOU ALL ENTERTAINED
WITH PHYSICAL ACTIVITY.
WOULD YOU LIKE TO
LEARN SOME TRICKS?

Maddy says YES.

Katrina says EXCELLENT.
YOU READY MONTY?
YEAH WE'RE READY. LET'S GO.
TODAY MADDY AND I ARE GOING
TO TEACH MONTY TO DROP
AND LAY DOWN.
THIS IS AN ESSENTIAL THAT
ALL DOGS SHOULD REALLY
LEARN HOW TO DO FOR THEIR SAFETY
AND IT GIVES YOU SOME CONTROL
OVER THEM IN ANY ENVIRONMENT.
OKAY LET'S CALL MONTY IN.
DO YOU WANT TO CALL HIM IN?

Maddy says MONTY. COME ON.

Katrina says FIRST STEP,
OH WHERE ARE YOU GOING BUD?
COME THIS WAY.
FIRST STEP IS TO SIMPLY ASK HIM
TO SIT.
HMM. SIT. GOOD BOY.
SO THAT'S THE FIRST STEP IS TO
ASK HIM TO SIT AND THEN
REWARD HIM WITH A TREAT.
MONTY GOOD BOY. GOOD SIT.
IF I GIVE YOU TREATS
DO YOU WANT TO CALL HIM TO YOU
AND ASK HIM TO SIT?

Maddy says MONTY COME HERE. MONTY
HEY MONTY. COME ON.

Katrina says ASK HIM TO SIT.

Maddy says SIT.

Katrina says SIT.
TREAT ABOVE HIS NOSE.
GIVE HIM THE TREAT. GOOD BOY.
MONTY COME.
SIT. PERFECT.
SO THAT IS THE FIRST STEP.
WE'LL KEEP WORKING ON HIS SIT.
I THINK HE HAS GOT IT
PRETTY DOWN PAT.
WE'LL BE BACK WITH
STEP TWO SOON.

Back in the bamboo house, Alfie says MADELEINE AND MONTY MAKE A
GREAT TEAM DON'T THEY?
TEAMING UP WITH DR KATRINA
I BET THEY'LL DO A GREAT JOB
AT TODAY'S TRAINING.
WE'LL FIND OUT HOW THEY'RE DOING
A BIT LATER ON IN THE SHOW.
BUT FIRST THINGS FIRST
IT'S TIME FOR AN ANIMAL FACT.

The announcer says DID YOU KNOW POLAR BEARS
ARE ONLY FOUND IN THE ARCTIC?
THE MOST IMPORTANT HABITATS FOR
POLAR BEARS ARE OPEN SPACES
IN THE OCEAN BETWEEN SEA ICE.
THESE ARE THE AREAS WHERE
POLAR BEARS CAN FIND THE
GREATEST NUMBERS OF SEALS.
HEY BUDDY.
THE REMAINS OF THESE
SEALS PROVIDE FOOD FOR MANY
OTHER ARCTIC WILDLIFE SPECIES,
GIVING POLAR BEARS AN IMPORTANT
ROLE IN THEIR ECO SYSTEM
BY HELPING OTHER ANIMALS THRIVE.
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.

White Llama Bob says HEY BOB?

Brown Llama Bob says YEP?

White Llama Bob says DO YOU WANT TO SEE
A MAGIC TRICK?

Brown Llama Bob says NO.

White Llama Bob says ONE, TWO, THREE, POOF.

Brown Llama Bob says WOW, WHERE'D YOU GO BOB?

White Llama Bob says I'M HERE.

Brown Llama Bob says WOW, HOW'D YOU DO THAT?

White Llama Bob says I'M BOBERINO,
THE FAMOUS MAGICAL BOB.
THREE, TWO, ONE OH POOF.

Brown Llama Bob says OH BOB STOP THAT.

White Llama Bob says POOF I AM BACK.

Brown Llama Bob says STOP IT BOB.

White Llama Bob says POOF.

Brown Llama Bob says BOB.

White Llama Bob says POOF.

Brown Llama Bob says STOP WITH THE POOF.

White Llama Bob says POOF.

Brown Llama Bob says STOP IT.

White Llama Bob says POOF.

Brown Llama Bob says NO POOF.

White Llama Bob says POOF.

Brown Llama Bob says STOP IT BOB.
BOB?
BOB?

White Llama Bob says BOB HELP.

WHERE ARE YA BOB?

White Llama Bob says I AM STUCK IN THE TREE.

Brown Llama Bob says I'LL GET THE CHAINSAW.

White Llama Bob says YOU'LL GET THE WHAT?

Alfie says AND THAT CREATURE FANS WAS THE
TWO BOBS.
THEY'RE BRILLIANT ALL RIGHT.
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 HUNT
FOR PREY UNDERWATER?
IS IT A THE BEWITCHING
BLAKISTON FISH OWL?
B THE AWESOMELY AUTHENTIC
AYE AYE?
YOU DON'T SEE THAT EVERY DAY.
OR IS IT C THE SWASHBUCKLING
SPECTACLED BEAR?
IF YOU ANSWERED A,
YOU ARE CORRECT.
THE OWL HUNTS FOR PREY
UNDER WATER.
OWLS ARE KNOWN TO BE WISE,
BUT IT'S A LITTLE KNOWN FACT
THAT SOME OWLS ARE TRICKY
FISHERMEN.
THESE OWLS KNOW A THING OR TWO
ABOUT LOOKING FOR FOOD
UNDER WATER.
THIS IS THE BLAKISTON'S FISH
OWL,
A SPECIAL OWL THAT LIVES
IN THE WOODS NEXT TO WATERWAYS
AND OCEANS.
THEY CHOOSE THESE PLACES AS
THEIR HABITAT BECAUSE THEY CAN
FIND THEIR PREFERRED DINNER
PERCHED FROM LOW HANGING
BRANCHES DANGLING ABOVE THE
WATER.
FROM THEIR SNEAKY
VANTAGE POINTS, THE BLAKISTON'S
FISH OWL FEEDS ON A VARIETY
OF AQUATIC LIFE.
THEIR FAVOURITE MEAL IS FISH,
BUT THEY'RE ALSO HAPPY
WITH FROGS, CRAYFISH
AND OTHER CRUSTACEANS.
THEIR HUNTING METHOD IS SIMPLE:
THEY PERCH ABOVE THE WATER ON
TREES, LOGS, ROCKS
AND RIVERBANKS, AND WAIT TO
MAKE THEIR MOVE.
ONCE THEY SPY MOVEMENT THEY
SWOOP IN TO GET THEIR DINNER.
THE FISH OWL GOBBLES UP
SMALLER PREY BACK AT THEIR
USUAL PERCH, BUT BIGGER FISH
THEY HAVE TO WEAR DOWN BEFORE
THEY CAN EAT.
MOST OF THE OWL'S FISHING
HAPPENS AT NIGHT AROUND DAWN
AND DUSK.
THESE NIGHT OWLS POUNCE WHEN THE
FISH ARE LEAST EXPECTING IT.

A clip shows an owl catching a fish at night.

The announcer says NOW THAT'S A CATCH OF THE DAY.

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 THAT DESPITE THEIR
ENORMOUS SIZE, BROWN BEARS ARE
EXTREMELY FAST AND CAN RUN AT
FORTY-EIGHT KILOMETRES PER HOUR?
ADULT BROWN BEARS ARE POWERFUL,
TOP-OF-THE-FOOD CHAIN PREDATORS,
BUT MUCH OF THEIR DIET
CONSISTS OF TINY NUTS, BERRIES,
FRUIT, LEAVES, AND ROOTS.
BEARS ALSO EAT OTHER ANIMALS.

A moose says HELP.

The announcer says OH SORRY MOOSE.
THE BIGGEST BEARS EAT SALMON
BECAUSE SALMON IS A SUPER FOOD.
AND THAT'S...

Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT.

Alfie says BROWN BEARS LIKE A GOOD LIE DOWN
WHEN THEY HIBERNATE.
I'M A BIT OF A FAN
OF LYING DOWN.
BUT CAN MADELEINE GET MONTY
TO DROP AND LIE DOWN?
SOUNDS EASY RIGHT?
BUT NOT ALL DOGS LIKE TO.
LET'S SEE HOW THEY'RE GETTING ON
WITH THEIR TRAINING.
YES IT'S TIME TO CHECK BACK IN
WITH DR KATRINA FOR STEP TWO OF
DOG TRICKS.

Katrina says WELCOME BACK.
WE'RE TEACHING MONTY HOW TO
LIE DOWN OR DROP.
THE FIRST STEP WAS JUST GETTING
HIM TO SIT WASN'T IT?
THE SECOND STEP IS GETTING HIM
TO JUST TILT HIS HEAD DOWN.
SO LET'S CALL HIM IN.

Maddy says MONTY. COME HERE. COME ON.

Katrina says ASK HIM TO SIT.

Maddy says SIT.

Katrina says AND NOW WHAT I WANT YOU TO DO
WITH YOUR TREAT IS JUST TO GET
HIM TO FOLLOW IT LIKE THAT
AND BEND HIS HEAD A LITTLE BIT.
FOLLOW IT
AND GIVE HIM THE TREAT.
OPEN FLAT HAND FOR HIM.
GOOD BOY.
THAT'S IT, FLAT HAND,
LET HIM FOLLOW IT WITH HIS HEAD
SO HE IS JUST GETTING HIM USED
TO PUTTING HIS HEAD TOWARDS THE
GROUND.
LAST TREAT THERE.
HE LOVES HIS TREATS.
OKAY WE'RE GOING TO KEEP
WORKING ON STEP TWO.
WE WILL BE BACK VERY SOON WITH
STEP THREE, WHICH IS GETTING HIM
TO LIE DOWN.

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.

A caption reads "Bad Pun Pony."

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

Bad Pun Pony says WHAT DID ONE FLEA SAY TO
THE OTHER?
SHOULD WE WALK HOME
OR TAKE A DOG?

Ducks chuckle.

Bad Pun Pony says BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE.
WHAT ANIMAL IS ALWAYS SURPRISED?
A CHIHUAHUA.

A bunny chuckles.

Kids say BAD PUN PONY YAY.

Alfie says PRICELESS. WHAT A JOKESTER.
WE'LL HAVE MORE FUN WITH OUR
PUNNING PONY ON THE NEXT SHOW.
BUT NOW 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 CAN DROP
THEIR TAIL AS A DEFENCE
MECHANISM?
IS IT A THE SLINKY SKINK?
IS IT B THE ODORIFEROUS RING
TAILED LEMUR?
OR IS IT C THE TONGUE POKING,
GO-GETTING GOANNA?

A goanna says OH YEAH.

The announcer says THE ANSWER IS A.
SKINKS CAN DROP THEIR TAILS.
A SKINK IS ONE OF MANY TYPES
OF LIZARDS SUCH AS: IGUANAS,
CHAMELEONS, GECKOS
AND MONITORS TO NAME A FEW.
SKINKS HAVE SHORTER NECKS
AND STUBBY LEGS.
AND MOST CAN RELEASE
THEIR TAIL IF IN DANGER.

A kangaroo says HOLY MOLY.

The announcer says MEET THE
AUSTRALIAN GIDGEE SKINK.

A skink says G'DAY.

The announcer says A SHY SPECIES
OF SPINY TAILED SKINK.
IT HAS KEELED SCALES
ALONG ITS DORSAL SURFACE
FROM THE BACK OF THE NECK
DOWN TO THE TIP OF
ITS POINTED TAIL.
IF HARASSED IT WILL INHALE AIR,
MAKING ITS BODY SWELL UP.
THIS INCREASED SIZE, COMBINED
WITH THE SPIKY KEELED SCALES,
MAKES IT DIFFICULT FOR
A PREDATOR TO DISLODGE
THE LIZARD FROM
ITS HIDING PLACE.
THE BLUE TONGUE SKINK OR LIZARD
AS THEY ARE COMMONLY KNOWN
HAVE LARGE TEETH
AND STRONG JAW MUSCLES
SO THEY CAN CRUSH SNAIL SHELLS
AND BEETLES.

Snails and beetles scream.

The announcer says ALTHOUGH
THEY ARE QUITE SLOW MOVING
FOR A LIZARD. WHEN IN DANGER
THEY STICK OUT THEIR
FAMOUS BLUE TONGUE.

A fox says COULD YOU PLEASE?

The announcer says THE COLOUR OF THE SKINK'S BODY
RESEMBLES THE COLOUR
OF THEIR ENVIRONMENT.
THEY ARE MORE SNAKE
LIKE THAN OTHER LIZARDS.
SINCE
THEY ARE COLD-BLOODED REPTILES,
THEIR FAVOURITE PAST TIME
IS DOZING IN THE SUN.

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 EMUS
HAVE THREE TOES ON EACH FOOT?

An emu says WHAT'S THE BIG IDEA?

The announcer says THE EMU HAS NOTORIOUSLY
POWERFUL FEET AND LEGS,
MUCH LIKE ITS RELATIVES
THE OSTRICH, CASSOWARY AND RHEA.
THEY ARE ALL FLIGHTLESS BIRDS,
WHICH MEANS THEIR LEGS
GET A LOT OF EXERCISE.
THE EMU'S LEGS CAN ALSO DEFEND
WITH A POWERFUL KICK,
OR CAN TAKE A LEISURELY STROLL
AROUND THE OUTBACK.
AND 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.

A clip shows a bid pecking on a fox’s tail.

The fox says HEY.

The bird says WO HO HO.

The bird pecks the fox’s tail again.

The fox says HEY.

A caption reads "It’s Pet and Tell."

Alfie sits in the set with a boy and his dog.

Alfie says INTRODUCING KNOX.
HE'S BROUGHT IN HIS PET DOG
TO TELL US ABOUT.
HOW ARE YOU DOING KNOX?

Knox is around 11, with short fair hair and wears white shorts and a white T-shirt.

He says GOOD.

Alfie says WHO'S THIS?

Knox says THIS IS MISHA.

Alfie says HELLO MISHA.
WHAT KIND OF DOG IS MISHA?

Knox says SHE'S A KING CHARLES CAVALIER
BUT WE THINK SHE IS SLASHED
WITH SOMETHING.

Alfie says KING CHARLES CAVALIER.
CAVALIERS HAVE
DEPENDANT PERSONALITIES.
THEY LOVE TO BE WITH PEOPLE
AND SHOULD NEVER BE LEFT ALONE
FOR LONG PERIODS OF TIME.
KING CHARLES CAVALIERS
COME FROM THE SPANIEL FAMILY
THAT HAS EXISTED FOR CENTURIES
AS A COMPANION
TO THE ROYALTY AND NOBILITY.
THEY'RE FRIENDLY
AND THEY MAKE GREAT PETS.
KING CHARLES CAVALIERS.
SO I HEARD YOU PLAY DRUMS.

Knox says YEP.

Alfie says IS IT HARD TO DRUM WITH
YOUR LIMB DIFFERENCE?

Knox says NAH BECAUSE I HAVE AN ATTACHMENT
FOR ALL THESE
DIFFERENT LIKE SPORTS.
LIKE I HAVE GOT A CRICKET
ATTACHMENT AND DRUMS, SKIPPING.

Alfie says THAT'S AWESOME.

Knox says YEAH IT IS NOT REALLY TOO HARD.

Alfie says YEAH COOL.
AND DOES MISHA LIKE SING ALONG
OR BARK ALONG WHEN YOU DRUM?

Knox says NO.

Alfie says WHY NOT?

Knox says CAUSE SHE IS AN OUTSIDE DOG
NOT AN INSIDE DOG.

Alfie says OH FAIR ENOUGH. FAIR ENOUGH.
DOES MISHA HAVE ANY QUIRKY,
FUNNY OR WEIRD BEHAVIOURS?

Knox says WELL SHE SNORES REALLY LOUDLY
WHEN SHE IS ASLEEP
AND SHE UMM EATS FLIES.

Alfie says SHE EATS FLIES?

Knox says YES.

Alfie says THAT'S REALLY INTERESTING.
OKAY SO I AM GOING TO GIVE
YOU A BIG QUESTION HERE.
WHAT IS IT THAT
YOU LOVE ABOUT MISHA?

Knox says I JUST LOVE THAT SHE IS,
WE THINK, SHE'S DIFFERENT.
I JUST LOVE THAT BECAUSE
IF SHE IS DIFFERENT
IT SORT OF MEANS THAT
SHE IS JUST SPECIAL SO.
THAT'S REALLY BEAUTIFUL MAN.

Alfie says THAT'S REALLY COOL.
OKAY MISHA SEEMS LIKE
A PRETTY TAME LOVELY DOG.
DOES SHE EVER DO ANYTHING
CHEEKY OR NAUGHTY?

Knox says WELL ONE TIME SHE FOUND
SOME FOOD AND I WENT
TO PICK HER UP AND SHE JUMPED UP
AND NIPPED ME ON THE ARM.

Alfie says OH SHE NIPPED YOU?

Knox says YEP.

Alfie says THAT'S INTERESTING.
IT IS GOOD TO REMEMBER THAT EVEN
THOUGH IT IS YOUR PET DOG
DOGS CAN GET AGGRESSIVE IF YOU
INTERFERE WITH THEIR FOOD.
WELL THANK YOU SO MUCH
FOR COMING IN KNOX.

Knox says IT'S OKAY ALFIE.

Alfie says AND THANK YOU
FOR BRINGING IN MISHA.

Knox says THAT'S OKAY.

Alfie says SHE IS SUPER CUTE.
SPEAKING OF CUTE CHECK THIS OUT.

The announcer says ON THE HIGH PLAINS
OF SOUTH AFRICA LIVES
A VERY INTERESTING CREATURE.
NO NOT YOU MR SQUIRREL OR YOU
MR BUTT SCRATCHING BABOON.
IT'S THE KLIPSPRINGER.
THIS DAINTY LITTLE DEER IS QUITE
THE ROCK CLIMBER, IT'S GOT TINY
LITTLE HOOVES, TEENY LITTLE
HORNS AND THE SWEETEST DOE EYES
WITH LOVELY LADY EYE LASHES.
THE LOCALS CALL THEM BALLERINAS.
KLIPSPRINGERS, THEY'RE JUST...

Kids say TOO CUTE.

Alfie says IF YOU NEED ANOTHER DOSE
OF CUTENESS TUNE IN
ON THE NEXT EPISODE.
WE'LL HAVE MORE ADORABLE THEN
BUT 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 WEIGHS
TWICE AS MUCH AS A CAR?
IS IT A THE FABULOUS
ELEPHANT SEAL?
B THE WOBBLY WEDDELL SEAL?
OR C THE VENOMOUS,
CRAZY KOMODO DRAGON?
IF YOU ANSWERED A,
YOU ARE CORRECT.
THE ELEPHANT SEAL IS AS LARGE
AS A CAR AND TWICE AS HEAVY.
IT GETS ITS NAME BECAUSE LIKE AN
ELEPHANT IT IS VERY, VERY BIG.
IT BULKS UP FOR A REASON.
THAT'S BECAUSE FOR BULL ELEPHANT
SEALS SIZE REALLY DOES MATTER.
THE BIGGER THEY ARE THE BETTER
THEIR CHANCES OF
GETTING A GIRLFRIEND.
IN FACT, A GANG OF GIRLFRIENDS.
A BULL FIGHTS TO CONTROL
THE BEACH, BECAUSE THIS BEACH
IS HOME TO HIS HAREM.
UP TO FIFTY FEMALES CAN
BE JEALOUSLY GUARDED
BY A SINGLE MALE.
BUT IT'S NOT EASY LOOKING
AFTER ALL THOSE FEMALES.
THE HAREM IS AN ATTRACTIVE
TARGET FOR ALL THE OTHER MALES.

A caption reads "Two Bobs."

Praying Mantis Bob 1 says I HEAR NOTHING BUT MY
OWN CALM BREATHING.
[CHEWING.]

Praying Mantis Bob 2 chews loudly.

Praying Mantis Bob 1 says I CANNOT HEAR CRUNCHING.

Praying Mantis Bob 2 says CAN'T HEAR YOU BOB.

Praying Mantis Bob 1 says I HEAR NO CRUNCHING OR YELLING.

Praying Mantis Bob 2 says THESE FLIES' HEADS
ARE SO GOOD BOB.

Praying Mantis Bob 1 says I HEAR NO REFERENCES
TO FLIES HEADS.

Praying Mantis Bob 2 says YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT
YOU'RE MISSING OUT ON.

Praying Mantis Bob 1 says I DID NOT HEAR YOU DON'T KNOW
WHAT YOU'RE MISSING OUT ON.

Praying Mantis Bob 2 says YES YOU DID.

Praying Mantis Bob 1 says NO I DIDN'T.
I AM A GLEEFUL DOLPHIN.

Praying Mantis Bob 2 belches.

Praying Mantis Bob 1 punches Praying Mantis Bob 2.

Praying Mantis Bob 2 says WOAH OW.

Praying Mantis Bob 1 says SHUT IT BOB. YOU ARE REALLY
MESSING WITH MY GLEEFUL DOLPHIN.

Praying Mantis Bob 2 says NO FLIES' HEADS FOR YOU.
WELL IT'S GONE ANYWAY.

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 HERCULEUS MOTH CATERPILLAR
IS BUILT TO GRIP TO ANY
RAINFOREST SURFACE
THE CATERPILLAR HAS LEGS
FOR EVERY OCCASION.
SIX TRUE LEGS, FOUR PAIRS
OF SUCKER FEET AND AT
THE VERY END OF THEIR BODIES
TWO LARGE CLASPERS, WHICH ARE
INCREDIBLY STRONG.
IT TAKES SIX MOULTS IN THREE
MONTHS FOR IT TO REACH THEIR
LARGEST SIZE BEFORE TURNING INTO
THE LARGEST MOTH IN AUSTRALIA.
YOU GO BUDDY.
AND THAT'S...

Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT.

Alfie says WHAT A FUN FACT.
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, ROLLIE POLY,
ADORABLE PONDERING PANDA.

A kid says THE PANDA THAT LIKES TO PONDER.

A panda on its back says DO YOU EVER WONDER IF EVERYONE
IN THE WORLD BLINKED AT EXACTLY
THE SAME TIME, NO ONE WOULD EVER
KNOW THAT ANYBODY
ELSE EVER BLINKED.
UNLESS A HUMAN FILMED SOMETHING
BLINKING WITH ONE OF THOSE
VIDEO CAMERA THINGS BUT LIKE,
WHEN YOU WATCHED THE VIDEO BACK,
WHAT IF YOU BLINKED AT EXACTLY
THE SAME TIME AS THE THING
BLINKING IN THE VIDEO?
YOU'D STILL NEVER KNOW
ANYTHING BUT YOU EVER BLINKED.

Alfie says AND NOW THE MOMENT OF TRUTH.
LET'S FIND OUT IF MADELEINE
CAN TEACH MONTY TO DROP
AND STAY THERE.
IT'S TIME FOR STEP THREE
OF DOG TRICKS.

Katrina says WELCOME BACK.
WE ARE TEACHING MADDY'S DOG
MONTY TO LIE DOWN OR DROP.
NOW WE'VE GOT HIM SITTING.
WE'VE GOT HIM COMFORTABLE
BENDING HIS HEAD SO
THE LAST STEP IS ACTUALLY
TO GET HIM TO FOLLOW THAT
TREAT ALL THE WAY TO THE GROUND.
AND I THINK YOU
CAN DO THIS PART.
SO LET'S CALL HIM IN. COME ON.

Maddy says MONTY COME ON.

Katrina says OKAY ASK HIM TO SIT.

Maddy says SIT.

Katrina says GET THAT TREAT ON HIS NOSE
AND THEN ASK HIM TO FOLLOW
IT ALL THE WAY DOWN.
DON'T COME UP TOO FAR FORWARD.
GO DOWN WITH YOUR HAND.
ALL THE WAY DOWN AND WHEN
HE GETS FOUR LEGS ON THE GROUND.
PERFECT. HE GETS THE TREAT.
AND THAT IS THE START
OF THE LIE DOWN.
SO I THINK HE HAS NAILED THAT.
ARE YOU CONFIDENT TO
PRACTICE THAT AT HOME?

Maddy says YES.

Katrina says AND DO YOU THINK THAT THAT'S
A GOOD TRICK FOR DOGS TO KNOW?

Maddy says YES.

Katrina says IT IS NOT JUST A TRICK IS IT?
IT'S ACTUALLY REALLY
BASIC OBEDIENCE.
WHY DO YOU THINK
THAT'S A USEFUL ONE?

Maddy says BECAUSE IT TEACHES THE DOG
WHO IS MASTER.
LIKE WE HAVE TO TEACH HIM
MORE TRICKS SO HE GETS MORE
FAMILIAR WITH STUFF AROUND HIM.

Katrina says YEAH BUT IT'S VERY, IT'S VERY
HANDY AS WELL WHEN YOU ARE AT
HOME TO BE ABLE TO TEACH YOUR
DOG TO GO SOMEWHERE AND LIE DOWN
JUST FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY
AND THEIR SAFETY AS WELL.
I HOPE YOU'VE ENJOYED
TODAY'S DOG TRICK.
WE WILL BE BACK NEXT TIME
WITH ANOTHER ONE.

Alfie says WELL GUYS THAT'S ALL
WE HAVE TIME FOR TODAY.
I'VE HAD A BLAST.
I HOPE YOU ENJOYED MEETING KNOX
AND HIS AWESOME DOG MISHA.
AND LEARNING ABOUT THE AMAZING
FISHING OWLS AND ELEPHANT SEALS.
AND HOW ABOUT THAT POLAR BEAR.
SO COOL. GET IT?
IF YOU'RE AFTER MORE
ANIMAL MADNESS, YOU KNOW
WHERE TO COME.
AND REMEMBER ANIMALS ARE AWESOME
AND PETS ARE PALS.
I'M ALFIE.
JOIN ME NEXT TIME
ON CREATURE MANIA.
