(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.
WE'VE GOT AN INCREDIBLE LINE UP
OF INTERESTING, WACKY
AND WONDERFUL ANIMALS TODAY.

Clips show different types of animals as Alfie says COMING UP,
WE CHECK OUT THE ROCK CHUCKING
EGYPTIAN VULTURE,
SOME CREEPY GIANT
AUSTRALIAN COCKROACHES
AND SOME WILD GUINEA PIGS.
WE HAVE A LAUGH WITH
PANDA AND PONY,
AND MEET LUKE
AND HIS RASCALLY RABBIT
IN PET AND TELL.
PLUS, LOTS, LOTS MORE.
BUT, FIRST THINGS FIRST,
LET'S CHECK IN WITH DR KATRINA
AND THE WONDER DOGS
AS WE FIND OUT WHAT TRICK
SHE'S GOING TO TEACH US TODAY.
IT'S TIME FOR 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 5 YEARS OLD.
HIS NICKNAMES ARE TRICKY
AND THE TRICKSTER.
TRICK IS AN AGILITY CHAMPION.
HE DID HIS FIRST STAGE SHOW
WHEN HE WAS JUST 8 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.

A caption reads "Learn to fetch."

Katrina makes Trick fetch 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 Imogen and her dog.

Imogen is around 11, with brown hair in cornrows and wears an orange skirt and a blue T-shirt.

Katrina says HI, THERE.
I AM HERE TODAY WITH IMOGEN
AND THE GORGEOUS HARRY.
IMOGEN TELL ME
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT HARRY.

Imogen says HARRY IS 3 YEARS OLD,
HE IS A CAVALIER
KING CHARLES SPANIEL
AND HE IS ALWAYS VERY HUNGRY.

Katrina says WHAT DO YOU LIKE MOST
ABOUT HARRY?

Imogen says HE IS VERY CUDDLY
AND HE IS NICE TO CUDDLE UP TO.

Katrina says SO IF YOU HAD TO DESCRIBE HIM
IN THREE WORDS
WHAT WOULD YOU PICK?

Imogen says I WOULD SAY SLEEPY, HUNGRY
AND CUDDLY.

Katrina says OH, YOU SOUND LIKE A GREAT DOG.
HE IS CONSTANTLY WAGGING
HIS TAIL.
VERY GOOD.
ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO DOING
SOME TRAINING TODAY?

Imogen says YEAH, I AM REALLY LOOKING
FORWARD TO IT.

Katrina says OKAY, WELL, LET'S GET TO IT.
TODAY, WE'RE GOING TO TEACH
HARRY TO FETCH.
A LOT OF DOGS WILL HAPPILY CHASE
A TOY
BUT THE TRICK IS TO GET THEM
TO PICK IT UP
AND BRING IT BACK.
THAT IS THE FETCH.
NOW TO START THIS ONE,
STEP ONE IS REALLY
FINDING SOMETHING
THAT IS GOING TO REALLY MOTIVATE
HARRY.
SO A FAVOURITE TOY.

Imogen says BRING IT IN, BRING IT IN.

Katrina says SEE HE IS GETTING EXCITED.

Imogen says COME ON, HARRY.

Katrina says BRING IT IN FOR SOME TOYS.
CALL HIM IN, CALL HIM IN.
CALL HIM IN.
GOOD BOY, GOOD BOY.

Imogen says READY?

Katrina says PERFECT.

Imogen says READY?

Katrina says YOU WILL FIND MOST DOGS WILL
HAVE A TOY THAT THEY PREFER,
THEY REALLY WANT TO CHASE.
COME ON, BUDDY, COME ON.
DO YOU THINK THAT'S THE ONE?
DO YOU THINK
HE'LL LIKE THAT BALL?

Imogen says YEAH, THIS ONE.

Katrina says OKAY, THAT'S STEP ONE.
WE WILL BE BACK WITH
STEP TWO SOON,
WHICH IS TEACHING HIM
TO CHASE IT.

Alfie says NOTHING BETTER THAN
PLAYING FETCH WITH A DOG.
BETTER THAN PLAYING FETCH
ON YOUR OWN.
TRUST ME, IT'S BORING.
WE'LL FIND OUT
HOW IMOGEN AND HARRY ARE DOING
WITH THIS FUN TRICK A LITTLE BIT
LATER ON IN THE SHOW.
BUT FIRST,
IT'S TIME FOR AN ANIMAL FACT.

The announcer says DID YOU KNOW
THE EGYPTIAN VULTURE IS ONE
OF 23 KNOWN VULTURE SPECIES
AND THEY ARE ENDANGERED?
THEY PLAY AN IMPORTANT ROLE
IN THE ECOSYSTEM,
DISPOSING OFF CARCASSES QUICKLY
AND THEREFORE STOPPING
THE SPREAD OF DISEASE.
POPULATIONS OF EGYPTIAN VULTURES
ARE DECLINING ACROSS THE GLOBE.
THIS IS DUE TO A VARIETY
OF THREATS LIKE POISONING,
ELECTROCUTION
AND HUMAN DISTURBANCE.
HANG IN THERE, BUDDY.
AND THAT'S...

Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT.

Alfie says AND NOW MY CREATURE MANIACS
IT'S TIME TO MEET
A FEW OTHER PALS OF MINE.
THEY'RE ARTICULATE,
THEY'RE GLIB,
THEY'RE WORDY
AND THEY'RE SLICK.
WHO ELSE COULD I BE
TALKING ABOUT?
AND NO IT'S NOT ME.
IT'S MY TWO FRIENDS,
THE TWO BOBS.

Mudskipper Bob 1 says HEY, BOB.

Mudskipper Bob 2 says OI, BOB.

Mudskipper Bob 1 says YES, BOB, WE'RE BOB.
WE ARE BOTH, BOB.

Mudskipper Bob 2 says NO, WE
JE M'APPELLE, BOB.

Mudskipper Bob 1 says BOB WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

Mudskipper Bob 2 says LEARNING THE LANGUAGE OF LOVE,
AIN'T I, BOB?

Mudskipper Bob 1 says LITHUANIAN?

Mudskipper Bob 2 says NO, FRENCH, BOB,
TO IMPRESS THE LADIES.

Mudskipper Bob 1 says OH.
YOU KNOW MUDSKIPPER LADIES
LOVE A GOOD BURP, BOB.

Mudskipper Bob 2 says DO THEY?

Mudskipper Bob 1 says YES, THEY DO.

Mudskipper Bob 2 says HOW ABOUT THIS THEN?
(BURPS)

Mudskipper Bob 1 says OH.
CAN YOU DO THAT IN FRENCH?

Mudskipper Bob 2 says SURE CAN.
LE BURP.

Mudskipper Bob 1 says VERY ROMANTIC, BOB.

Mudskipper Bob 2 says WE BOB.

Mudskipper Bob 1 says YES, BOB, WE BOB.
WE ARE BOTH, BOB.
I THOUGHT WE WENT THROUGH THIS.

(BURP)

Alfie says TWO BOBS OF TALKING NONSENSE
ALL RIGHT.
HILARIOUS.
WE'LL FIND OUT WHAT ELSE THEY
HAVE TO SAY A BIT LATER ON.
IT'S TIME NOW
FOR SOME BRAIN NOURISHMENT,
LET'S TEST YOUR ANIMAL KNOWLEDGE
AND FIND OUT
SOME FASCINATING FACTS.
IT'S CREATURE QUIZ.

The announcer says WHICH OF THESE ANIMALS
LOOKS FOR FOOD
BY TAPPING THE OUTSIDE
OF TREES?
IS IT A
THE BEAUTIFUL PEACOCK?

The peacock says WHY THANK YOU.

The announcer says IS IT B
THE MYSTERIOUS AYE AYE?
OR IS IT C THE BOUNCIEST
OF MAMMALS THE KANGAROO?
IF YOU ANSWERED B
THE AYE AYE AS OUR TREE TAPPER
YOU WOULD BE RIGHT.

An aye aye says THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

The announcer says THE AYE AYE IS FROM THE
BEAUTIFUL ISLAND OF MADAGASCAR
AND BOASTS A BODY PART
THAT YOU WON'T BELIEVE:
IT'S GOT A FRIGHTENINGLY LONG
FINGER.

People say OH NO.

The announcer says THE AYE-AYE'S BONY MIDDLE FINGER
CAN BE THREE TIMES LONGER
THAN THE OTHER DIGITS
AND IT'S USED TO DRUM UP
FINGER FOOD.
SCIENTISTS HAVE DISCOVERED
THAT THE AYE-AYE FINDS FOOD
SIMPLY BY TAPPING ITS FINGER.

An aye aye says WOW.

The announcer says THOSE BIG FLOPPY EARS
ARE LISTENING
FOR THE DIFFERENCE IN SOUND
BETWEEN THE SOLID WOOD
AND THE HOLLOW TUNNELS
FILLED WITH JUICY GRUBS.

An aye aye says HELLO.

The announcer says IT'S A SIMPLE MATTER
TO RIP APART THE WOOD,
AND USE THE VERSATILE FINGER
AND NAIL TO EXTRACT A MEAL.

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 GIANT AUSTRALIAN COCKROACH
CAN GROW TO 80 MILLIMETRES IN LENGTH
AND WEIGH APPROXIMATELY
35 GRAMS WHEN FULLY MATURE?
THIS SPECIES IS WINGLESS
AND SPENDS MUCH OF ITS DAYS
IN BURROWS UNDERGROUND.
THESE BURROWS CAN BE AS DEEP
AS 1 METRE
AND USUALLY CONTAIN
A FOOD STORAGE AREA
AND LIVING CHAMBER
CONNECTED BY
A SERIES OF TUNNELS.
THEY PRIMARILY FEED ON DRIED
AND DECAYING EUCALYPTUS LEAVES
BUT WILL ALSO EAT THINGS LIKE
APPLE, CARROT, CORN AND SPINACH.
AND THAT'S...

Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT.

Alfie says COCKROACHES ARE PRETTY
INTERESTING.
BUT CAN THEY PLAY FETCH?
OF COURSE NOT.
WHAT WOULD THEY FETCH ANYWAY?
A TEENY TINY TOY?
NO.
THIS TRICK IS FOR DOGS.
AND I KNOW A DOG WHO IS
TRYING TO LEARN THIS RIGHT NOW.
IT'S TIME TO CHECK IN
WITH DR KATRINA
AND SEE HOW IMOGEN AND HARRY
ARE GETTING ON.
YES, IT'S TIME FOR STEP TWO
OF DOG TRICKS.

Katrina says WELCOME BACK.
IMOGEN AND I ARE TEACHING HARRY
HOW TO FETCH.
SO STEP ONE WAS CHOOSING A TOY
THAT WE THINK HARRY IS GOING TO
WANT TO CHASE.
SOMETHING THAT REALLY
EXCITES HIM.
AND YOU HAVE CHOSEN THE BALL,
HAVEN'T YOU?

Imogen says YEAH.

Katrina says OKAY, SO WE ARE REVVING HIM UP
WITH THAT
AND WHAT I AM GOING TO DO
IS GET YOU TO...
GET HIM A BIT EXCITED
AND THEN JUST THROW THAT BALL
A LITTLE WAY
AND THEN ENCOURAGE HIM
TO CHASE IT.

Imogen says OKAY.

Katrina says OKAY, YOU READY, HARRY?
READY, THERE YOU GO.

Imogen moves the ball around and says HARRY, READY, HARRY, READY.
GET IT.

Katrina says THAT WAS PERFECT.
THAT WAS STEP TWO.
SO HE HAS CHASED THE BALL.
STEP THREE WELL LET'S SEE IF
WE CAN GET HIM TO BRING IT BACK.
BUT WE ARE GOING TO POP BACK
TO THE STUDIO FIRST
AND WE WILL BE BACK WITH
STEP THREE LATER.

Alfie says WE'LL CATCH UP WITH THEM
A BIT LATER.
BUT FIRST TIME FOR
SOME BELLY WOBBLING,
ROLLING ON THE FLOOR,
HAR DE HAR LAUGHING.
WELL, SHE THINKS SO.
YEP, GIVE IT UP FOR
OUR FAVOURITE HORSE WHO HOWLS.
HAND OVER THE MIC
TO 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'S BROWN
AND SOUNDS LIKE A BELL?
COW-DUNG.

Ducks chuckle.

Bad Pun Pony says OR HOW ABOUT THIS?
WHY DO BEARS HAVE HAIRY COATS?
FUR-PROTECTION.

A bunny chuckles.

Kids say BAD PUN PONY.
YAY!

(NEIGHS)

Alfie says WHAT A KNEE SLAPPER.
WE'LL HAVE MORE FROM OUR
JOKESTER PONY ON THE NEXT SHOW.
BUT NOW, IT'S TIME FOR
A CHANGE OF SCENERY.
LET'S HAVE A BIT OF
A BRAIN TRAIN
AND SEE IF WE CAN ANSWER
THIS ONE CORRECTLY.
YES, IT'S TIME FOR ANOTHER
CREATURE QUIZ.

The announcer says WHICH OF THESE ANIMALS LIVE IN
LARGE BURROWS UP TO 30 METRES LONG?
IS IT A, THE AUSTRALIAN NATIVE
KNOWN AS THE WOMBAT?
AWW.
B THE EVER-CHANGING
LIZARD VERSION OF A MOOD RING
THAT IS CALLED THE
CHAMELEON?
OR C THE GIANT
AUSTRALIAN COCKROACH?
WHICH, AS OFF PUTTING
AS SOME PEOPLE FIND THEM
ARE ACTUALLY KEPT AS PETS
BY SOME PEOPLE.
IF YOU ANSWERED A, THE WOMBAT,
YOU'RE CORRECT.
THEIR BURROWS CAN BE 30 METRES LONG.

People say YES.

The announcer says EVEN THOUGH THE WOMBAT
KIND OF LOOKS LIKE A BEAR,
IT'S ACTUALLY A MARSUPIAL
MUCH LIKE A LOT OF OTHER
AUSTRALIAN ANIMALS,
SUCH AS THE KOALA,
KANGAROO,
WALLABY AND MANY MORE.
THE DEFINING CHARACTERISTIC
OF A MARSUPIAL
IS THAT THE YOUNG ARE CARRIED
IN A POUCH
AND THE WOMBAT IS NO EXCEPTION.
WOMBATS DIG EXTENSIVE
BURROW SYSTEMS
WITH THEIR RODENT-LIKE
FRONT TEETH AND POWERFUL CLAWS.
ONE DISTINCTIVE ADAPTATION
OF WOMBATS
IS THEIR BACKWARDS POUCH.
THE ADVANTAGE OF
A BACKWARDS-FACING POUCH
IS THAT WHEN DIGGING,
THE WOMBAT DOES NOT GATHER SOIL
IN ITS POUCH OVER ITS YOUNG.
AND YES,
AS PREVIOUSLY MENTIONED,
THEIR BURROWS UNDERGROUND
CAN STRETCH AS LONG AS 30 METRES,
SO THEY REALLY ARE PUTTING
THEIR SHORT,
YET MUSCULAR FRAMES
TO GOOD USE.
WOMBATS ARE HERBIVORES,
EATING AMONG OTHER THINGS
GRASS, HERBS, BARK AND ROOTS.
THEY ALSO HAVE
A VERY SLOW METABOLISM,
TAKING UP TO 14 DAYS
TO PROCESS FOOD.
GENERALLY SPEAKING,
WOMBATS MOVE VERY SLOWLY,
BUT WHEN THREATENED,
THEY CAN KICK INTO HIGH GEAR
AND REACH A TOP SPEED
OF A WHOPPING 40 KILOMETRES PER HOUR,
AND MAINTAIN THAT SPEED
FOR UP TO 90 SECONDS.
THIS TRULY IS A CASE OF
NOT JUDGING A BOOK BY ITS COVER.

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 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 GUINEA PIGS
ARE NOT RELATED TO PIGS
AND THEY DO NOT COME
FROM GUINEA?

A Guinea pig says WHAT'S THE BIG IDEA?

The announcer says THE GUINEA IN THEIR NAME
REFERS TO THE COUNTRY OF GUYANA,
AND THE PIG IN THEIR NAME IS
BECAUSE THEY HAVE STOUT BODIES,
WHICH GIVES THEM
A PIGGY LIKE APPEARANCE.
TO FURTHER CONFUSE THINGS,
GUINEA PIGS ARE NOT EVEN
FROM GUYANA,
THEY ARE FROM THE
ANDES MOUNTAINS
IN SOUTH AMERICA,
AND ARE MEMBERS OF THE
RODENT FAMILY.
BUT SOMEHOW, I DON'T THINK
THE NAME ANDES RATS
WILL GAIN ANY POPULARITY.
AND THAT'S...

Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT.

Alfie says OKAY CREATURE MANIACS, IT'S TIME
FOR SOMETHING DIFFERENT.
MY FAVOURITE PART OF THE SHOW.
WE'RE GOING TO MEET
A SPECIAL GUEST
AND THEIR SPECIAL PET FRIEND
RIGHT HERE IN THE HOUSE.
BUT FIRST...

(music plays)

A clip shows two rodents fighting.

A caption reads "It’s Pet and Tell."

Alfie sits in the set with Luke and his pet.

Alfie says INTRODUCING LUKE.
HE'S BROUGHT IN AN AWESOME PET
TO SHOW US.
HELLO, LUKE.

Luke is around 11, with short curly blond hair and wears blue Bermuda shorts and a red T-shirt.

Luke says HELLO, ALFIE.
WELCOME TO THE SHOW.

Luke says THANK YOU.

Alfie says SO, AHH, WHO IS THIS?

Luke says HE IS WOOKIEE.
WOOKIEE.

Alfie says AND WHAT KIND OF A RABBIT
IS WOOKIEE?

Luke says HE IS A MINI LOP SCOTTY FOUR.

Alfie says SORRY, A WHAT?

Luke says A MINI LOP SCOTTY FOUR.

Alfie says WOW.
SO THAT IS LIKE A MOUTHFUL.

Luke says YEAH.

Alfie says SO HOW LONG HAVE YOU HAD
WOOKIEE FOR?

Luke says ABOUT SEVEN MONTHS.

Alfie says SEVEN MONTHS, WOW.
SO YOU HAVE KIND OF RAISED HIM.

Luke says YEAH.

Alfie says MINI LOP RABBITS HAVE A GREAT
PLAYFUL PERSONALITY.
THE MINI LOP RABBIT
HAS BEEN AVAILABLE IN AUSTRALIA
SINCE 1988
AND IS ONE OF THE MOST
SMALLEST BREEDS OF RABBIT.
MOST GET ALONG FINE
WITH OTHER PETS,
SUCH AS GUINEA PIGS,
IF INTRODUCED PROPERLY.
THE MINI LOP RABBIT
IS NOT A VERY ACTIVE RABBIT
AND DOES NOT REQUIRE
A GREAT AMOUNT OF EXERCISE.
HOWEVER, CARE MUST BE TAKEN
THAT IT IS NOT OVER FED.
MINI LOP ARE A GREAT SIZE
FOR CHILDREN
AND HAVE BETTER TEMPERAMENTS
THAN THE NETHERLAND
DWARF RABBIT.
MINI LOP RABBIT.
HOW DID YOU COME UP
WITH THE NAME WOOKIEE?

Luke says BECAUSE OF HIS BLACK AND BROWN,
AHH, SKIN
WE CALLED HIM THAT
BECAUSE HE LOOKED A LOT
LIKE CHEWBACCA.

Alfie says YEAH, AWESOME.
WHAT DO YOU DO TO
LOOK AFTER WOOKIEE?

Luke says WE LET HIM RUN AROUND.
WE FEED HIM.
WE GIVE HIM WATER,
AND OCCASIONALLY,
WE JUST PAT HIM A LOT.

Alfie says YEAH.
SO AHH WHAT DO YOU FEED HIM?

Luke says OATS AND WHEAT
AND SOMETIMES HAY
AND SOMETIMES WE JUST GIVE HIM
A CARROT OR KALE.

Alfie says YEAH.
DO YOU ONLY GIVE HIM THE CARROT
AND KALE SOMETIMES?

Luke says YEAH.

Alfie says BECAUSE CARROTS AND APPLE
ARE QUITE,
CARROTS ARE KIND OF LIKE
A TREAT FOR RABBITS.

Luke says YEAH, MOST OF THE TIME
HE EATS HIS OATS
AND A LITTLE BIT OF HIS HAY.

Alfie says YEAH, AWESOME.
WHAT'S YOUR MOST FAVOURITE THING
ABOUT WOOKIEE?

Luke says HE'S CUTE
AND YOU DON'T NEED TO...
HE IS QUITE EASY TO LOOK AFTER.

Alfie says YEAH, AND HE LOVES CUDDLES.

Luke says OF COURSE.

Alfie says WELL, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR
COMING ON THE SHOW TODAY LUKE.

Luke says THANK YOU ALFIE
FOR LETTING ME COME.

Alfie says NO, WORRIES.
AND THANK YOU FOR INTRODUCING US
TO YOUR AWESOME RABBIT WOOKIEE.
HE IS SUPER CUTE.
SPEAKING OF CUTE
CHECK THIS OUT.

The announcer says IN OCEANS AND ON LAND AROUND
THE WORLD,
TURTLES LIKE TO CHILL.
BUT THEY'RE STILL FASTER
THAN SLOTHS.

A sloth says NOT A PROBLEM.

The announcer says AND CAN LIVE UP TO A 100.

A turtle says REALLY?
DYNO.

The announcer says SO LET'S GO BACK TO WHEN THEY
WERE SUPER TINY BABY TURTLES.
JUST FLAPPING AROUND
THEIR FLIPPERS,
WAVING TO ANY PASSER-BY.

A wombat says ALL RIGHT.

The announcer says AND, IF YOU'RE QUIET ENOUGH,
YOU MIGHT EVEN HEAR THEM SPEAK.

A baby turtle says HELLO.

The announcer says BABY TURTLES ARE JUST...

Kids say TOO CUTE!

Alfie says MORE TOO CUTE ON THE NEXT SHOW.
BUT NOW, IT'S TIME FOR A LITTLE
BIT OF BRAIN NOURISHMENT.
LET'S TEST
YOUR ANIMAL KNOWLEDGE
AND FIND OUT
SOME FASCINATING FACTS.
IT'S TIME FOR A FANTASTIC
CREATURE QUIZ.

The announcer says WHICH OF THESE ANIMALS HAVE
A HIGHER POPULATION THAN HUMANS?
IS IT A THE CHICKEN?
WHO DEFINITELY CAME BEFORE
THE EGG.
IS IT B
THE MISCHIEVOUS MACAQUE?
OR IS IT C
THE GASEOUS COWS?
IF YOU ANSWERED A,
YOU ARE CORRECT,
THERE ARE MORE CHICKENS
THAN HUMANS ON EARTH.
THERE ARE OVER 25BN CHICKENS
IN THE WORLD,
THAT'S MORE THAN ANY OTHER BIRD.
A FEMALE CHICKEN
IS CALLED A HEN
AND CAN LAY MORE THAN
300 EGGS A YEAR,
ALTHOUGH SOME BREEDS LIKE
THE BANTUM LAY LESS EGGS.
HENS CAN LAY EGGS
WITHOUT A ROOSTER.

A hen says HIT THE ROAD.

The announcer says BUT IF THEY MATE,
THEN THE EGGS
WOULD BECOME FERTILIZED
AND HATCH LITTLE CHICKS.
THEY MAY BE THE BUTT
OF MANY A JOKE,
BUT IT TAKES A LOT TO RUFFLE
THESE CHOOKS FEATHERS.

A caption reads "Two Bobs."

Crocodile Bob 1 says IN TODAY'S MEAT EATERS
ANONYMOUS SESSION
WE'RE GOING TO BE USING
MINDFULNESS
TO HELP US WITH
OUR MEAT CRAVINGS.

Crocodile Bob 2 says WHAT'S MINDFULNESS, BOB?

Crocodile Bob 1 says IT'S WHEN YOU REALLY FOCUS ON
WHAT'S HAPPENING
IN THE PRESENT MOMENT.

Crocodile Bob 2’s stomach grumbles.

Crocodile Bob 1 says BOB?

Crocodile Bob 2 says SORRY, BOB,
I WASN'T LISTENING.
WHAT DID YOU SAY?

Crocodile Bob 1 says LET'S START BY TUNING INTO
OUR BODIES.
WITH MINDFULNESS WE WILL
OVERCOME OUR MEAT CRAVINGS.
WON'T WE, BOB?
WON'T WE, BOB.

Crocodile Bob 2 says SORRY, BOB, I CAN'T HEAR YOU.
MY STOMACH'S TALKING TOO LOUD.

Crocodile Bob 1 says BOB, WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

Crocodile Bob 2 says JUST LIKE YOU SAID, BOB.
TUNING INTO MY BODY
AND THIS PIG CARCASS TOO.

Crocodile Bob 1 says FIGHT IT, BOB, FIGHT IT.

Crocodile Bob 2 says NO, USE FIGHTING.
IT'S ALREADY DEAD.

Crocodile Bob 1 says NO, I MEAN FIGHT
THE URGE, BOB.

Crocodile Bob 2 says URGE IS WINNING,
URGE IS WINNING.

Crocodile Bob 1 says NO, BEAT IT.
PUT THE CARCASS DOWN.

Crocodile Bob 2 says I WILL PUT IT DOWN MY THROAT.

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 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 bat 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 I DO LOVE A FUN FACT.
OKAY GUYS,
TIME FOR A BIT OF PHILOSOPHY.
WITH A BEAR
WHO LIKES TO REFLECT.
A BEAR WHO LIKES TO MUSE
AND THINK AND WRESTLE AND MULL.
YES, IT'S OUR FAVOURITE
ADORABLE BAMBOO EATING,
ROLLING AND ROCKING,
PONDERING PANDA.

A kid says THE PANDA THAT LIKES TO PONDER.

A panda on its back says DO YOU EVER THINK ABOUT CAKE?
I MEAN,
REALLY THINK ABOUT CAKE?
LIKE, CAKE IS MADE FROM FLOUR,
SUGAR,
THAT WEIRD BI CARB SODA STUFF,
MILK AND EGGS, RIGHT?
BUT LIKE, FLOUR IS MADE
FROM WHEAT
AND SUGAR IS MADE
FROM SUGAR CANE,
AND BI CARB IS MADE
FROM ROCKS,
AND MILK IS MADE BY COWS
AND CHICKENS MAKE EGGS.
SO LIKE, EVERY TIME A HUMAN
EATS CAKE,
THEY'RE REALLY EATING GRASS,
A BUNCH OF TWIGS, ROCKS,
A COW
AND A CHICKEN.
EWW.

Alfie laughs and says MOVING ON.
IT'S TIME NOW FOR THE FINAL STEP
OF FETCH WITH IMOGEN AND HARRY.
WILL HE BRING THE TOY BACK?
LET'S FIND OUT.
IT'S STEP THREE OF DOG TRICKS.

Katrina says IMOGEN AND I HAVE BEEN HAVING
A LOT OF FUN
TEACHING HARRY TO FETCH.
WELL, WE HAVE NEARLY GOT THERE,
HAVEN'T WE?

Imogen says YEP.

Katrina says SO FAR HE IS CHASING THE BALL,
NOW WE WANT HIM TO
BRING IT BACK.
SO THE KEY IS SEND HIM OUT,
EXACTLY WHAT YOU HAVE
BEEN DOING.
LOTS OF ENTHUSIASM
AND THEN AS SOON AS
HE GETS THAT BALL
OR GOES NEAR THAT BALL
CALL HIM BACK.

Imogen says OKAY.

Katrina says BUT LOTS AND LOTS OF ENERGY
AND ENTHUSIASM
IN YOUR VOICE, OKAY.
ARE YOU READY, HARRY?
YES, I AM.
ARE YOU READY?

Imogen says YES.

Katrina says OKAY.

Imogen says READY, READY.
FETCH.

Katrina says CALL HIM BACK.
QUICK, QUICK.

Imogen says HARRY, COME ON.

Katrina says OKAY, NEARLY.
HE DIDN'T BRING THE BALL BACK
BUT HE BROUGHT HIMSELF BACK.
ENCOURAGE HIM TO FETCH IT.

Imogen says GET IT.

Katrina says GOOD BOY.
NOW CALL HIM BACK IN.

Imogen says COME ON, HARRY, COME ON.
YAY, GOOD BOY, HARRY.
GOOD BOY.

Katrina says PERFECT, PERFECT!
SO THAT WAS STEP THREE.
NOW YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO.
YOU CAN BUILD UP FROM THAT.
LOTS OF ENTHUSIASM
AND ENCOURAGEMENT.
YOU ENJOYING YOURSELF?

Imogen says VERY.

Katrina says YOU PROUD OF HARRY?
VERY PROUD.

Imogen says HE'S DONE REALLY WELL.

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

Alfie says WELL CREATURE MANIACS
THAT IS IT FOR TODAY'S SHOW.
IT'S BEEN GREAT WATCHING IMOGEN
AND HARRY LEARN A DOG TRICK,
AND MEETING LUKE
AND HIS SUPER CUTE RABBIT.
REMEMBER ANIMALS ARE AWESOME
AND PETS ARE PALS.
I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE SHOW.
IF YOU'RE AFTER FURRY,
CUTE AND ADORABLE,
WITH A BIT OF FREAKY,
WEIRD AND WACKY THROWN IN
THEN JOIN ME, ALFIE,
NEXT TIME ON
CREATURE MANIA.
