GROANING

0:00:470:00:49

What's that, Marvin? Oh, yes, I agree.

0:00:490:00:53

Hello, I'm Andy, and this is a baby meerkat.

0:00:530:00:57

Now, meerkats live in big family groups

0:00:570:01:00

and they love talking to each other.

0:01:000:01:03

Shall I see if I can talk meerkat?

0:01:030:01:05

HIGH-PITCHED GROAN

0:01:050:01:07

I think Marvin here knows that I'm not a meerkat.

0:01:070:01:10

Wouldn't it be great if we understood what animals were saying?

0:01:100:01:14

First stop, Kenya in Africa.

0:01:140:01:17

LION ROARS

0:01:170:01:18

Whoa!

0:01:210:01:23

How's that for a roar?

0:01:230:01:25

Lions are the loudest cats in the world.

0:01:280:01:31

GROANING Aw!

0:01:320:01:34

Not quite as noisy when they're that little, though.

0:01:340:01:38

These African lions live in a family called a pride.

0:01:380:01:43

You can tell which one's Dad.

0:01:430:01:45

He's got all that shaggy hair on his head.

0:01:450:01:47

It's called a mane.

0:01:470:01:49

He's also got a big mouth.

0:01:490:01:53

Perfect for a spot of roaring.

0:01:530:01:56

They're not just making all that noise for fun, though.

0:01:570:02:01

That's their way of saying to all the other lion families,

0:02:010:02:04

"Hey, you lot, stay off our patch."

0:02:040:02:07

Pity impressive, eh?

0:02:090:02:10

That roar is almost as loud as the siren on a fire engine.

0:02:140:02:18

Now Mum and her sisters are joining in too.

0:02:180:02:22

Your turn.

0:02:220:02:23

Good try, little one.

0:02:270:02:29

Every lion needs to know how to roar.

0:02:290:02:32

MUFFLED ROAR

0:02:320:02:33

They learn by copying the grown-ups.

0:02:340:02:37

It's a shouting school for lions.

0:02:370:02:39

I think you need a bit more practice

0:02:430:02:46

if you want to be as noisy as Mum and Dad, though.

0:02:460:02:49

# Andy's Baby Animals Andy's Baby Animals. #

0:02:530:02:57

In Antarctica, there are some babies that have a loud voice

0:03:000:03:04

when they're still little.

0:03:040:03:06

This ball of fluff is a penguin.

0:03:080:03:11

He lives in a big group called a colony.

0:03:110:03:14

These guys are chinstrap penguins.

0:03:140:03:17

They're called that because it looks like

0:03:170:03:20

they've got a black helmet strapped to their head.

0:03:200:03:24

I think Mum must be off getting breakfast.

0:03:240:03:27

Penguins like fish for breakfast...

0:03:270:03:30

and lunch...

0:03:300:03:31

and supper too.

0:03:310:03:32

She's got to bring breakfast home to her chick.

0:03:410:03:45

I hope she can find him again.

0:03:450:03:47

There are so many penguins here.

0:03:470:03:49

Luckily our chick has got a very noisy call,

0:03:510:03:55

especially when he's got an empty tummy.

0:03:550:03:58

Here she comes.

0:03:590:04:01

Oh, just look at her go.

0:04:010:04:03

PENGUINS CALL

0:04:030:04:05

Right, just that big hill to climb.

0:04:100:04:13

Oh!

0:04:130:04:15

Erm...

0:04:150:04:16

Hmm...

0:04:180:04:19

Maybe putting the colony at the top of a muddy, icy slope

0:04:210:04:25

wasn't such a good idea after all.

0:04:250:04:28

Whoops.

0:04:280:04:31

Oh, dear.

0:04:310:04:33

Whoa, whoa, ooh.

0:04:330:04:35

ANDY CHUCKLES

0:04:370:04:39

It's a pity penguins can't fly.

0:04:390:04:41

Come on, Mum, get a grip.

0:04:450:04:47

Oh!

0:04:500:04:52

Yes! She's made it.

0:04:590:05:02

Oh, well done, Mum.

0:05:020:05:04

Now all she and the other mums have to do

0:05:080:05:11

is to find their families again.

0:05:110:05:13

Shouldn't be too hard!

0:05:130:05:15

I mean, there's only 150,000 birds here.

0:05:150:05:19

Erm...

0:05:190:05:21

Er...

0:05:210:05:22

Ah.

0:05:220:05:24

Good idea, guys.

0:05:240:05:25

Use that loud voice of yours.

0:05:250:05:28

Over here, Mum!

0:05:280:05:30

Everyone knows that mums have great hearing.

0:05:310:05:34

PENGUIN CALLS

0:05:380:05:40

A penguin's ears are so good,

0:05:430:05:45

Mum can pick out her own chick's call,

0:05:450:05:48

even though everyone else is shouting too.

0:05:480:05:51

See? Clever Mum has found them.

0:05:550:05:59

She came straight to his call.

0:05:590:06:01

And now he can use that motor mouth for eating,

0:06:060:06:10

rather than shouting.

0:06:100:06:12

PENGUIN SQUAWKS

0:06:130:06:14

# Andy's Baby Animals Andy's Baby Animals. #

0:06:160:06:20

In Sri Lanka, some baby animals can talk without making a sound.

0:06:220:06:28

This baby macaque is only ten weeks old.

0:06:340:06:37

She lives in a big family too, called a troop.

0:06:390:06:43

These monkeys like to chat,

0:06:480:06:51

but they mainly communicate by pulling funny faces at each other.

0:06:510:06:56

Genius.

0:06:560:06:57

If you're raising your eyebrows, it means, "I'm a bit worried."

0:07:010:07:07

And this crazy smile is actually their way of saying,

0:07:070:07:11

"I don't want any trouble today, thanks."

0:07:110:07:14

I know. Amazing, isn't it?!

0:07:140:07:17

She's going to have to learn all these funny faces

0:07:170:07:20

if she wants to talk to the other monkeys.

0:07:200:07:24

Right, where to start?

0:07:240:07:26

Maybe try it out on her friends first.

0:07:280:07:31

She's asking them if she can join in.

0:07:350:07:38

Oh, dear. I don't think they want to play with her.

0:07:480:07:52

Maybe the grown-ups will understand her.

0:07:550:07:58

She needs to be careful to follow the rules, though.

0:08:000:08:04

This is the boss.

0:08:040:08:06

He's called the alpha male.

0:08:060:08:08

He's a bit full of himself, thinks he's a king or something.

0:08:080:08:12

When he looks you in the eye,

0:08:140:08:15

you have to chatter your teeth together to show respect.

0:08:150:08:19

Weird, isn't it?

0:08:190:08:21

I suppose it's the monkeys' way of doing a bow or a curtsy.

0:08:210:08:25

Uh-oh.

0:08:270:08:28

It looks like our little friend has caught his eye.

0:08:280:08:32

If she doesn't chatter her teeth, she'll be in trouble.

0:08:320:08:35

Come on.

0:08:420:08:43

Come on, you can do it.

0:08:490:08:50

Aw, yes.

0:08:540:08:56

She did it.

0:08:560:08:58

With funny faces like that,

0:09:040:09:06

she's going to fit right in around here.

0:09:060:09:09

Give her a big hug, Mum, to say well done.

0:09:120:09:15

Aw.

0:09:150:09:16

For a lion cub, a penguin chick or a young macaque,

0:09:210:09:24

it's really important to find your voice.

0:09:240:09:27

It's all part of growing up.

0:09:270:09:29

Isn't that right, Marvin?

0:09:290:09:31

He said yes. See you next time.

0:09:330:09:35

Talking is important for young animals. Andy Day sees how lions aren't born with a loud roar. In Antarctica, a penguin chick can be heard by his mum despite 150,000 others. A baby macaque must learn the value of funny faces if she is to fit in.
