This is The Let's Go Club, but mini.

0:00:020:00:04

Expect making, exploring, super-sizing, dancing,

0:00:040:00:08

fact-finding and laughing. We've only got a few minutes,

0:00:080:00:12

so get ready for more fun from The Let's Go Club.

0:00:120:00:15

-Hello, I'm Grace.

-And I'm Jake.

0:00:150:00:18

Today, we're going to be wildlife keepers.

0:00:180:00:21

BOTH: Let's go!

0:00:210:00:23

A wildlife keeper is someone who looks after animals in

0:00:230:00:27

a wildlife park or a zoo. This is Lauren.

0:00:270:00:30

She helps to look after one really special animal.

0:00:300:00:33

Can you guess what they are? They have really long necks.

0:00:330:00:37

-Giraffe.

-Is it a giraffe?

-It is a giraffe,

0:00:370:00:40

and I've got a little treat for you.

0:00:400:00:42

You're going to help me pick up some giraffe poo today.

0:00:420:00:45

Here's your spade and come with me.

0:00:450:00:47

What do you think it smells like?

0:00:470:00:49

It smells stinky but it's all right.

0:00:490:00:52

A lot of people come in here and think it's really smelly,

0:00:520:00:55

-so shall we pick up some poo?

-Yeah.

-Yeah.

0:00:550:00:58

Yeah? Wonderful. Come this way.

0:00:580:01:00

This one's for you, Grace.

0:01:030:01:05

It's hard work, but it's really good fun.

0:01:070:01:10

'There's so much poo.'

0:01:110:01:13

This is fun.

0:01:130:01:14

-Shall we put some nice fresh straw on top of their bed now?

-Yeah.

0:01:170:01:21

-Is it nice and squishy?

-Yeah, it's like a bouncy castle.

0:01:220:01:26

It is like a bouncy castle. It's comfortable for them

0:01:260:01:29

to sleep on because they're very heavy animals.

0:01:290:01:32

-Shall we go and do something else?

-Yeah.

-Yeah.

-Wonderful. Let's go.

0:01:320:01:36

-Do you know what these are?

-Stinging nettles.

0:01:400:01:43

They are, and they love them.

0:01:430:01:45

-Won't they sting the giraffes?

-No, because the skin inside

0:01:450:01:48

of a giraffe's mouth is very tough.

0:01:480:01:50

Why do you put the nettles in these metal balls?

0:01:500:01:53

In captivity they don't have to work as hard for their food,

0:01:530:01:56

so we put the nettles inside the balls and they

0:01:560:01:58

have to get the nettles out with their lips and tongues

0:01:580:02:01

through the gaps in the mesh.

0:02:010:02:03

It makes them use their tongue like they're supposed to.

0:02:030:02:06

This is a little treat. Shall we go and get them

0:02:060:02:09

-something a bit bigger to eat?

-Yeah.

0:02:090:02:11

We're at the plantation. This is where we get all our fresh

0:02:140:02:18

leaves and boughs for our giraffe to eat.

0:02:180:02:20

What trees do giraffes eat?

0:02:200:02:22

We'll get some silver birch and willow today -

0:02:220:02:25

two of their favourites. If I cut down some trees, did you

0:02:250:02:28

-want to help me load them onto the vehicle?

-Yeah.

-Wonderful. Let's go.

0:02:280:02:32

We'll cut down a willow tree for them,

0:02:340:02:36

another one of their favourites.

0:02:360:02:38

Those leaves look nice and tasty for the giraffes, don't they, Grace?

0:02:380:02:42

Yeah, they do.

0:02:420:02:43

-Now that's done, it's time to eat.

-But I'm not hungry.

0:02:470:02:51

It's not for you, Grace, it's for the giraffes!

0:02:510:02:54

'Lauren hung up the nettle balls.'

0:03:000:03:02

It's amazing!

0:03:100:03:12

'We're holding the boughs for the giraffe to eat.'

0:03:120:03:17

He's so strong!

0:03:170:03:20

-Oh!

-THEY LAUGH

0:03:200:03:23

There we go. Can you see their tongues?

0:03:230:03:27

Yeah, they're really long and wriggly.

0:03:270:03:29

-Can you see what colour their tongue is?

-Blue.

-It is blue.

0:03:290:03:33

It's thought to be that dark blue, purpley colour

0:03:330:03:35

to protect against sunburn. It's very hot in the African savanna,

0:03:350:03:39

so they have a dark tongue to protect them against sunburn.

0:03:390:03:42

Giraffe-y-raff-y! Hey!

0:03:420:03:45

Have you both enjoyed your day

0:03:450:03:47

-as a zookeeper at the wildlife park?

-Yeah.

-Yeah.

0:03:470:03:50

What's your favourite part been?

0:03:500:03:52

I really enjoyed feeding the giraffes.

0:03:520:03:55

Feeding the giraffes is much more fun than picking up

0:03:550:03:58

-their poo, isn't it?

-Yeah.

-Yeah.

0:03:580:04:00

You can join The Let's Go Club too.

0:04:000:04:02

Just grab a grown-up and head to the CBeebies website.

0:04:020:04:06

There are songs to sing along to,

0:04:060:04:07

things to make and do and see CBeebies Radio too.

0:04:070:04:10

Remember, we're the club that never closes.
