(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, 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.

Clips show different types of animals as Alfie says COMING UP,
WE CHECK OUT A FREAKY FISH:
THE SPRAYING CHARACIN,
MEET THE WORLD'S FASTEST BIRD:
THE PEREGRINE FALCON,
AND COME FACE TO FACE WITH
A MORAY EEL.
WE HAVE A LAUGH WITH
PANDA AND PONY
AND MEET NAMAN

IN PET AND TELL.
PLUS, LOTS, LOTS MORE.
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 THIS GORGEOUS GANG
IS THE WONDER DOGS.
TODAY, WE'RE GOING TO SHOW YOU
HOW TO TEACH YOUR DOG
HOW TO DO A LEG WEAVE.
FLYNN IS GOING TO
DEMONSTRATE THIS FOR US.
LET'S TAKE A MOMENT
TO LEARN A BIT ABOUT HIM.
MEET FLYNN,
HE'S 8 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 GOOD 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 HIS PET HATES
ARE GETTING INTO TROUBLE
AND BEING KEPT UP PAST
HIS BEDTIME.
HIS NAUGHTIEST DEED
DEFINITELY DIGGING THE BIGGEST
HOLE OF ALL THE WONDER DOGS.
HIS FAVOURITE TREAT IS CHEESE.
THREE WORDS TO DESCRIBE FLYNN:
HANDSOME, CLEVER AND LOYAL.
NOW LET'S SEE FLYNN
DEMONSTRATE.

A caption reads "Leg weave."

Katrina and Flynn do the leg weave.

Katrina says IN.
IN.
THE LEG WEAVE
IS AN ADVANCED TRICK.
IT REQUIRES GOOD CO-ORDINATION
AND PATIENCE.
IT'S A GOOD ONE
FOR SMALLER DOGS.
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 Kyla and her dog.

Katrina says I AM HERE WITH KYLA
AND HER DOG NIKKI.
KYLA TELL ME A LITTLE BIT
ABOUT NIKKI.

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

Kyla says SO, NIKKI IS
A GERMAN SHORTHAIRED POINTER.

Katrina says HOW OLD IS SHE?

Kyla says SHE IS 8 MONTHS OLD.

Katrina says AND HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE
HER PERSONALITY?

Kyla says SO SHE IS VERY BOUNCY
AND EXCITED
AND SHE IS USUALLY ALWAYS HAPPY.

Katrina says DOES SHE EVER GET UP TO MISCHIEF
BEING A PUPPY?

Nikki jumps off the bench.

Katrina says LIKE THAT.

Kyla says YEP.

Katrina says WHY DO YOU THINK IT'S IMPORTANT
TO TRAIN A DOG?

Kyla says OTHERWISE THEY WILL BE
MISBEHAVING
AND DOING ALL THE WRONG STUFF.

Katrina says WHAT KIND OF TRAINING
HAVE YOU DONE WITH NIKKI?

Kyla says UMM WE'VE DONE THINGS LIKE
WAIT OR STAY.
UMM WE'VE DONE SIT AND DROP.

Katrina says AND SHAKE PAWS MAYBE?

Kyla says YEAH.

Katrina says WOULD YOU LIKE TO LEARN
SOME TRICKS TODAY?

Kyla says SURE.

Katrina says OKAY, I THINK NIKKI IS RARING
TO GO.
LET'S GET TO IT.

Nikki jumps off the bench again.

Katrina says HEY.
TODAY, KYLA AND I ARE GOING TO
TEACH NIKKI
HOW TO DO THE LEG WEAVE.
SO FIRST STEP FOR THIS ONE
IS TO JUST GET HER COMFORTABLE
GOING THROUGH ONE LEG ONLY.
OKAY, TWO TREATS.
YOU HAVE GOT TWO TREATS.
ONE IN EACH HAND.
SO I'LL ASK HER TO COME ROUND
AND SIT NEXT TO ME, FOR A TREAT.
THEN PUT MY LEG OUT
AND ENCOURAGE HER
TO GO RIGHT THROUGH.
SO SHE GETS IT
WHEN SHE COMES RIGHT THROUGH.
TREAT.
BIG STEP.
PERFECT.
NOW THAT IS STEP ONE.
WELL DONE.
STEP TWO IS TO GET HER USED TO
THE OTHER LEG
AND WE'LL BE BACK
TO DO THAT SOON.

Alfie says OH NIKKI,
WHAT A COOL LOOKING DOG.
LOOKS LIKE SHE HAS
A LOT OF ENERGY TOO.
I THINK THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE
FUN WITH TRAINING.
WE'LL CHECK IN WITH DR KATRINA
AND KYLA
A LITTLE LATER ON
IN THE SHOW.
BUT FIRST,
IT'S TIME FOR AN ANIMAL FACT.

The announcer says DID YOU KNOW
THAT THE SPRAYING CHARACIN
FISH LAY EGGS ON LEAVES
ABOVE THE WATER?
THE MALE THEN
CHASES THE FEMALE AWAY
AND FOR THE NEXT DAY AND A HALF
HE REGULARLY SPLASHES THE EGGS
ON THE LEAF,
KEEPING THEM MOIST.
THE EGGS HATCH
AND THE BABIES ARE WASHED OFF
BY THE SPLASHING
AND QUICKLY FIND HIDING PLACES
AMONGST THE PLANTS IN THE WATER.
SWIM FREE LITTLE FISHIES.
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.

Praying Mantis Bob 1 says OMM.
LOOK INSIDE YOURSELF
AND FIND YOUR HAPPY PLACE.

Praying Mantis Bob 2 says CAN YOU SEE YOUR HAPPY PLACE,
BOB?

Praying Mantis Bob 1 says WHEN YOU ARE IN
YOUR HAPPY PLACE...

Praying Mantis Bob 2 says DO YOU NEED SOME HELP
LOOKING, BOB?
TURN AROUND
SO I CAN TAKE A PEEK.

Praying Mantis Bob 1 says INHALE YOUR SURROUNDINGS.

Praying Mantis Bob 2 says DON'T INHALE TOO MUCH, BOB,
YOU MIGHT JUST CHOKE ON A FLY
OR SOMETHING.

Praying Mantis Bob 1 says BE THE KING OF
YOUR OWN CALM HAPPY PLACE.

Praying Mantis Bob 2 says ALL HAIL BOB KING OF CALM.

Praying Mantis Bob 1 punches Praying Mantis Bob 2.

Praying Mantis Bob 2 says BOB, OW.

Praying Mantis Bob 1 says GET YOUR FACE
OUT OF MY HAPPY PLACE.

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
COLLECTIVELY DEPOSIT
MILLIONS OF TONS OF DUNG
INTO THE AFRICAN RIVERS?
IS IT A THE JOLLY
LEAF MUNCHING GIRAFFES?
B THE CRAZY WILD WILDEBEEST?
OR IS IT C
THE DECEPTIVELY CHARMING HIPPO?
IF YOU ANSWERED C AS THE DUNG
FACTORY YOU ARE CORRECT.
HIPPOS MAY LOOK CUTE
AND FRIENDLY
BUT THIS IS ONE ANIMAL
TO STAY WELL CLEAR OF.
WITH A HEAD FULL OF
MASSIVE TEETH
THE AVERAGE HIPPO CHEWS ITS WAY
THROUGH 100 KILOS OF GRASS
AND RIVER REED
EVERY DAY.
WHEN THIS VEGETARIAN COCKTAIL
TRAVELS THROUGH
THAT MASSIVE HIPPO SYSTEM,
THINGS START TO GET
SOMEWHAT EXPLOSIVE.
RISING OUT OF A MUD BATH,
IF A HIPPO TURNS HIS BACKSIDE
TO YOU IT'S TIME TO RUN.

Animals scream and say AHH.

The announcer says TWIRLING THEIR TAILS
IT'S A CASE OF TAKE AIM AND FIRE
AS THEY CAN SEND A POO AND WEE
GRENADE WITH GREAT ACCURACY.

A deer says EWW.

The announcer says MOST ANIMALS
MARK THEIR TERRITORY
BUT THIS IS NEXT LEVEL.

A cheetah runs and screams.

Praying Mantis Bob 2 says IT'S ALSO A WARNING TO
POTENTIAL RIVALS TO STAY AWAY.

A hippo laughs.

The announcer says MILLIONS OF TONS
OF HIPPO DUNG
GETS PROPELLED
INTO AFRICA'S RIVERS EACH YEAR
AND IT'S A GOOD THING TOO
BECAUSE ALL THAT HIPPO DUNG
BRINGS QUITE A LOT OF NUTRITION
INTO THE WATER... ..AND FISH LOVE IT.

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.
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 THE PEREGRINE FALCON IS ONE OF
THE MOST COMMON BIRDS OF PREY,
AND THE BIRD OF CHOICE
FOR MANY FALCONERS?
PEREGRINE MEANS WANDERER
AND IT CAN BE FOUND ON ALL THE
WORLD'S CONTINENTS
EXCEPT THE POLES.
BUT THE AMAZING THING ABOUT THE
PEREGRINE FALCON
IS THAT IT CAN DIVE UP TO
250 KILOMETRES PER HOUR.
THAT'S RIGHT 250 KILOMETRES
PER HOUR.

A peregrine falcon says WOW.

The announcer says AND THAT'S...

Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT.

Alfie says I WONDER WHO WOULD BE FASTER
A PEREGRINE FALCON
OR NIKKI OUR DOG IN TRAINING?
OKAY, MAYBE
THE PEREGRINE FALCON
BUT I THINK NIKKI WOULD BE
A CLOSE SECOND.
I WONDER IF THEY'RE ABLE TO
KEEP HER STILL LONG ENOUGH
TO LEARN THE LEG WEAVE.
WOW THERE'S A LOT OF BALANCING
INVOLVED FOR KYLA TOO.
LET'S SEE
HOW THEY'RE GETTING ON.
IT'S PART TWO OF DOG TRICKS.

Katrina says TODAY, WE'RE TEACHING NIKKI
TO DO THE LEG WEAVE.
SO WE'VE TAUGHT HER
TO GO THROUGH OUR RIGHT LEG
AND NOW WE'RE GOING TO TEACH HER
TO GO THROUGH OUR LEFT LEG.
NOW SHE LOVES HER FOOD SO MUCH,
SHE'S PRETTY EASY TO TEACH.
I THINK THIS ISN'T GOING TO BE
TOO HARD.
SO SAME THING AS THE
OTHER SIDE.
ASK HER TO SIT.
NIKKI SIT.
THEN GIVE HER A TREAT
AND THEN THROUGH THAT LEG
AND ANOTHER TREAT.
OKAY.
YOU HAVE A GO.
TURN AROUND.
GET HER TO SIT.
PERFECT.
TREAT.
BIG STEP.
THAT'S IT.

Kyla says NIKKI.

Katrina says TREAT WHEN SHE GETS THROUGH.
PERFECT.
THAT'S STEP TWO.
WE'RE GOING TO PRACTICE THAT
AND THEN WE'RE GOING TO PUT IT
ALL TOGETHER
AND GET HER TO LEG WEAVE.
WELL, WE HOPE.
WHAT DO YOU THINK?

Kyla nods.

Katrina says NIKKI.
I THINK SHE CAN DO IT.
WE'LL BE BACK SOON
WITH STEP THREE.

Alfie says MORE FROM DR KATRINA
AND DOG TRICKS A BIT LATER ON
BUT NOW, 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.

A caption reads "Bad Pun Pony."

Kids say YAY!

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

Bad Pun Pony says WHAT DOES A CLOCK DO
WHEN IT GETS HUNGRY?
IT GOES BACK FOUR SECONDS.

Ducks chuckle.

Bad Pun Pony says WHY DID THE FARMER GIVE
THE PONY A GLASS OF WATER?
BECAUSE HE WAS A LITTLE HORSE.

A bunny chuckles.

Kids say BAD PUN PONY!
YAY!

(NEIGHS)

Alfie says I DO LOVE A BIT OF
PONY ENTERTAINMENT.
THOUGH SHE IS SOUNDING
A LITTLE HORSE.
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
NEEDS VAST STORES OF BODY FAT
TO GET THROUGH THE WINTER?
IS IT A THE SNEAKY,
SLINKY SNOW LEOPARD?

A leopard says YEAH.

The announcer says B THE BATTY BATS?

The bat says YEE HA.

The announcer says OR IS IT C
THE SUPER STRONG BROWN BEAR?
IF YOU ANSWERED C, THE BEAR,
YOU'RE CORRECT.
NOTHING BINGES
QUITE LIKE A BEAR.
A BEAR CAN EASILY EAT 10 TIMES
MORE FOOD THAN MOST HUMANS.
AN ASTONISHING 20,000 CALORIES
EACH DAY.
IT CAN PILE ON MORE THAN
10 KILOGRAMS A WEEK,
AND 80 PERCENT OF THAT IS PURE FAT.
THANKS TO A DIET OF SALMON.
BEARS NEED VAST STORES
OF BODY FAT
TO SEE THEM THROUGH THE WINTER,
BECAUSE THEY WON'T EAT,
DRINK
OR GO TO THE BATHROOM
FOR UP TO 6 MONTHS.

(FLUSHING SOUND)

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 TELL
GUEST IN THE HOUSE,
THERE'S AN ADORABLE ANIMAL
IN TOO CUTE,
PLUS, SOME USING 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
THE MORAY EEL HAS LARGE EYES
BUT IT DOES NOT SEE WELL?
LUCKILY, IT HAS A GOOD SENSE
OF SMELL,
WHICH HELPS IT LOCATE ITS PREY.
MOST MORAY EELS
ARE NOCTURNAL
AND LOVE LURKING IN
DARK CREVICES.
THEIR SKIN PRODUCES
A SLIPPERY SUBSTANCE,
WHICH COVERS THEIR BODY
AND ACTS AS A PROTECTIVE MUCUS.
THESE MISUNDERSTOOD FISH
CAN LIVE UP TO 30 YEARS OF AGE
AND THEY REALLY AREN'T
AS MENACING AS THEY SEEM.
NOT TO HUMANS AT LEAST.
AND THAT'S...

Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT.

The announcer 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.
OH, BUT FIRST THERE'S THIS.

6 kittens move their heads as they follow the ball at a tennis match.

A caption reads "It’s Pet and Tell."

Alfie sits in the set with Naman and his dog.

Naman is around 12, with short brown hair and wears denim shorts and a blue T-shirt.

Alfie says INTRODUCING NAMAN.
HE'S BROUGHT IN HIS PET DOG
TO TELL US ALL ABOUT.
HOW ARE YOU DOING, BRO?
WELCOME TO THE SHOW.

Naman says GOOD, HOW ARE YOU, ALFIE?

Alfie says I AM VERY GOOD, MAN.
WHO IS THIS?

Naman says THIS IS MILO.

Alfie says AHH WHAT KIND OF A DOG
IS MILO?

Naman says HE'S A SPOODLE,
WHICH IS A COCKER SPANIEL
AND A POODLE.

Alfie says SO HE IS A SPOODLE, POODLE,
NOODLE, WHAT SORRY?
WHAT WAS HE?

Naman says HE IS A COCKER SPANIEL
AND A POODLE.

Alfie says AHH AND SO THAT'S A SPOODLE?

Naman says YEP.

Alfie says AHH THAT'S AWESOME.
WHAT'S THE BEST THING
ABOUT MILO?

Naman says UMM HE IS REALLY ENERGETIC.
WHENEVER YOU WANT TO PLAY
WITH HIM
HE ALWAYS STARTS PLAYING.
HE IS REALLY LOVELY.
LIKE HE GIVES YOU A LOT OF LOVE
AND STUFF.

Alfie says AND DO YOU GIVE HIM
A LOT OF LOVE?

Naman says YEP.

Alfie says YEAH.
SPOODLE.
A SPOODLE IS NOT A RECOGNISED
DOG BREED.
THEY ARE A CROSS BETWEEN
A COCKER SPANIEL AND A POODLE.
ALSO KNOWN AS COCKER POODLES.
SPOODLES GENERALLY
HAVE FRIENDLY, OUTGOING
AND LOVING PERSONALITIES.
THEY MAKE GREAT PETS
AND WERE BRED ESPECIALLY
AS COMPANION DOGS.
LIKE ALL DOGS,
POSITIVE REINFORCEMENT IS THE
BEST WAY TO TRAIN A SPOODLE.
THEY ARE A LOW SHEDDING DOG
INHERITED FROM THE POODLE
AND MAKES THEM GOOD
FOR PEOPLE WITH ALLERGIES.
SPOODLE.
SO WHAT'S YOUR FAVOURITE THING
ABOUT MILO?

Naman says MILO HE IS VERY NAUGHTY
BUT IN A GOOD WAY
AND HE LOVES PLAYING,
HE LOVES DOING ALL FUN STUFF
WITH YOU.
WHEN YOU ARE NOT PLAYING
WITH HIM HE JUST GOES TO SLEEP.
HE IS QUITE LAZY BUT.

Alfie says DOES HE CHEW A LOT?

Naman says YEAH, THERE IS THIS ONE INCIDENT
WHERE HE GOT THE TOILET PAPER
AND HE RAN ROUND THE
WHOLE HOUSE
AND THERE WAS TOILET PAPER
ROUND THE WHOLE HOUSE
AND MUM TOOK A PICTURE
OF HIM
AND HE HAD TOILET PAPER
IN HIS MOUTH
AND IT WAS A GREAT PICTURE.

Alfie says YEAH.
OH MAYBE HE WAS JUST TRYING
TO PAINT THE HOUSE WITH SNOW.
YOU KNOW LIKE HE WAS LIKE
I WANT IT TO BE WINTER.
OH, HE IS SUCH A CUTIE.
WOW.
SO IF ANOTHER KID WANTED TO GET
A SPOODLE
WOULD YOU RECOMMEND IT?

Naman says YEAH, IF YOU DON'T WANT HIM
TO SHED
OR IF YOU DON'T WANT A DOG
TO SHED,
YOU JUST WANT HIM TO SIT DOWN
WITH YOU LIKE RIGHT NOW
JUST GET A SPOODLE
BECAUSE THEY'RE LOVELY DOGS
AND THEY'RE REALLY BEAUTIFUL.

Alfie says YEAH, DEFINITELY.
WELL, THANK YOU SO MUCH
FOR COMING IN TODAY, NAMAN.

Naman says IT'S ALL RIGHT, ALFIE.

Alfie says NO WORRIES AND THANK YOU
FOR BRINGING IN MILO.

Naman says YEP, IT'S ALL RIGHT.

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

The announcer says WHEN THE SUN GOES DOWN
AND THE JUNGLE WAKES UP
ONE HAPPY LITTLE HOPPER
STARTS TO LEAP ABOUT.
IT'S THE TARSIER.

A tarsier jumps from tree to tree.

The announcer says THIS POCKET-SIZED PRIMATE
HAS SUPER BIG EYES,
TOES LIKE FINGERS,
BAT LIKE EARS,
FUNNY FROG LEGS
PLUS SUPER FLUFFY FUR.
PUT IT ALTOGETHER AND YOU'VE GOT
A REAL LIFE MUNCHKIN.
AND THAT'S 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... ..CAN LEARN
UP TO 300 HUMAN PHRASES?
IS IT A THE ORANG-UTAN
WHO SHARES 97 PERCENT OF
HUMAN GENETIC MATERIALS?
B THE COCKATOO?
THE MASTER MIMIC.
OR IS IT
C THE LOVABLE LABRADOR?
IF YOU ANSWERED C
YOU ARE CORRECT.
THE LABRADOR CAN LEARN UP TO
300 HUMAN PHRASES.

People say OH.

Clips show Labradors picking up the phone and riding a skateboard.

The announcer says LABRADORS ARE A VERY POPULAR
BREED OF DOG
DUE TO THEIR EXCELLENT
TEMPERAMENT.
THEY ARE INTELLIGENT, ADAPTABLE,
OBEDIENT, SOCIABLE AND LOYAL.
THEY ARE ALSO VERY ENERGETIC
AND NEED TO BE EXERCISED
REGULARLY.

(BARKS)

The announcer says LABRADOR RETRIEVERS WERE BRED
TO BE THE PERFECT WATER DOGS,
ORIGINALLY THEY WERE BRED TO
HELP FISHERMEN IN NEWFOUNDLAND,
AN ICY PART OF NORTH AMERICA.
THEY HAVE WATER-RESISTANT
DOUBLE COATS
THAT PROVIDE INSULATION
AND THEIR SHORT FUR
KEEPS THEM WARM
BUT DOESN'T DRAG THEM DOWN
WHEN IT GETS WET.
THEIR WEBBED TOES
MAKES FOR SPEEDY SWIMMING
AS WELL AS THEIR STRONG TAIL.
DOGS CAN SHAKE ROUGHLY 70 PERCENT OF
THE WATER FROM ITS FUR
IN 4 SECONDS
THANKS TO THEIR LOOSE SKIN.

A Labrador says SHAKE A LEG.

The announcer says MANY DOGS,
INCLUDING LABRADORS,
WERE SPECIFICALLY BRED
TO RETRIEVE CERTAIN ITEMS
FOR THEIR HUMAN OWNERS.
THEY HAVE AN IN-BUILT DESIRE
TO CHASE AFTER OBJECTS,
PICK IT UP IN THEIR MOUTH AND
BRING IT BACK TO THEIR OWNER.

A Labrador rolls over.

The announcer says GOOD BOY.

A caption reads "Two Bobs."

Penguin Bob 1 says BOB AND BOB HERE
COMING TO YOU LIVE
FROM THE WORLD BELLY FLOP
CHAMPIONSHIPS
AT THE ANTARCTIC AQUATIC CENTRE.
OR AAC AS WE 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.

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 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.

The announcer says DID YOU KNOW
A SINGLE ADULT OYSTER
CAN FILTER
THE EQUIVALENT OF 62-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.

(SCREAMS)

The announcer says 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 fish says THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

The announcer says 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, ROLLIE POLY,
BAMBOO EATING,
PONDERING PANDA.

Kids say THE PANDA THAT LIKES TO PONDER.

A panda on its back says DO YOU KNOW
WHAT I DON'T UNDERSTAND?
WHY HUMANS USE BAMBOO
FOR THINGS OTHER THAN EATING.
I MEAN, THEY MAKE CHAIRS
OUT OF BAMBOO,
OH THEY MAKE SKATEBOARDS
OUT OF BAMBOO,
THEY EVEN MAKE UNDIES
AND TOILET PAPER OUT OF BAMBOO.
BUT LIKE, BAMBOO IS FOOD.
AND YOU DON'T USE FOOD
TO MAKE UNDIES.
I MEAN, HUMANS WOULDN'T MAKE
UNDIES OUT OF,
LIKE,
MASHED POTATO WOULD THEY?
BECAUSE THAT WOULD BE WEIRD.

Alfie says IT'S YEAH, SO WEIRD.
ANYWAY TIME TO CHECK IN WITH
DR KATRINA FOR THE FINAL TIME
AND SEE IF KYLA CAN GET NIKKI
TO DO THE LEG WEAVE.
LET'S FIND OUT.
IT'S DOG TRICKS.

Katrina says KYLA HAS BEEN DOING
A SENSATIONAL JOB
TRAINING NIKKI
TO DO THE LEG WEAVE.
SO FAR WE'VE GOT HER GOING
THROUGH THE LEFT
AND THE RIGHT LEGS.
NOW IT'S TIME TO
PUT IT ALTOGETHER
AND I THINK YOU CAN DO THIS.
THE KEY IS TO DO IT SLOWLY.
OH, YOU LOVE YOUR TREATS,
DON'T YOU?
NICE AND SLOWLY.
SO ASK HER TO COME AND SIT
ON YOUR LEFT HAND SIDE.
PERFECT, THEN SUPER BIG STEP,
NICE AND SLOWLY.
ENCOURAGE HER UNDER.
PERFECT.
NEXT STEP.
PERFECT AND ONE MORE.
THAT'S PLENTY
AND THEN GIVE HER A BIG PAT.
WELL DONE.
YOU GUYS ARE AN AWESOME TEAM
BY THE WAY.
YOU'VE DONE REALLY WELL.
HAVE YOU HAD FUN TODAY?

Kyla says DEFINITELY.

Katrina says YEAH, ARE YOU GOING TO KEEP UP
THE TRAINING?

Kyla nods.

Katrina says I THINK NEXT TIME
WE SEE NIKKI
SHE WILL BE SPINNING VERY FAST
THROUGH THOSE LEGS.

Kyla says YEP.

Katrina says YEAH.
OKAY, I HOPE YOU'VE ENJOYED
TODAY'S DOG TRICK.
I'LL BE BACK NEXT TIME
WITH MORE.

Alfie says WELL CREATURE CRAZIES
THAT'S IT FOR TODAY.
I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE SHOW.
IT WAS GREAT TO MEET NAMAN
AND HIS DOG MILO
AND SEE NIKKI LEARN TO WEAVE.
PLUS ALL THOSE OTHER
AMAZING ANIMALS.
IF YOU WANT TO SEE MORE FLUFFY,
GORGEOUS, HILARIOUS,
INCREDIBLE CREATURES.
THEN THERE'S ONLY ONE PLACE
TO BE.
AND REMEMBER ANIMALS ARE AWESOME
AND PETS ARE PALS.
I'M ALFIE.
JOIN ME NEXT TIME
ON
CREATURE MANIA
